Pitbulls should be banned from Porcupines! (is that a pit? LOL)
BriareosI'm done. You're not listening. The "please know what you're talking about" was specifically about the testing previously mentioned. Your answer clearly showed that you know nothing about said tests.
You are really going out of your way to be as vague as possible, arnt you.... are you talking about that testing for the permit? Because that wouldnt work for reasons I already said.

No. That wasn't the intent. If you think it was a vague reference look at the bottom of post 155 referring to 154. Later I quoted your response to the temperament test and pointed out that the sobriety comment makes you sound like you know nothing about said test. It's nothing like a sobriety test, it's quite extensive, and it's a very good gauge of a dog's risk to a potential owner and the general public. The SPCA uses it to determine if dogs seized should be put up for adoption or euthanized, and to what type of home the dog should go. I take it back, I'm not done with the gun vs. injection argument. On death by firing squad, take a look at how many states (3) have the potential to use it. http://www.amnestyusa.org/abolish/execmethod.do As you pointed out, I wasn't aware that it was still held constitutional anywhere, but I do know that in most states that hold it as unconstitutional, the ruling was done so because the method was considered inhumane. http://www.richard.clark32.btinternet.co.uk/injection.html "Guatemala has also switched to lethal injection after a botched firing squad execution..." One of the three states that still allows firing squads does so only in case the other method(s) they use are ruled unconstitutional. The other two are either/or propositions -- one at the choice of the court, and one at the choice of the convict. The last firing squad execution in the US was in 1996 at the request of the recipient. So basically it's 37 to 1 in favor of lethal injection. But that's a side point. My main point was that you can not guarantee a 100% painless death with a gun (you just can't). Putting the animal to sleep is the accepted method across the board (you can't argue this fact). Just ask any Humane Society or animal control worker. Besides, the mentality that "we should just shoot 'em" leads to things like this. Shooting a dog is a civil infraction (aside from certain mitigating circumstances). Now I'm done.
