I live in England so I can't sign the petition (quite rightly) but please suppport this if you can. Killing a breed of dog just because some members of that species have misbehaved can never be right. All dogs come from the same place, wolves, it is what humans do that makes the difference. More people are killed and maimed by cars driven by drunk drivers but we don't ban cars, we take action action against drunk drivers! Order pit bulls to be muzzled, if you must; ban their commerial breeding, but don't just kill them - we are beyond this!!
