What is your position on the issue of controlling certain breeds of dogs in the community as a safety measure?
Safety is always a major concern for me. Some breeds of dogs are proven to be more dangerous than others. Owners of these breeds have to know this and take more precautions with their pets. Still, the owner of any pet is still responsible for any actions of their pet. There has to be strict penalties in place for the owner if there is any neglect to ensure the safety of other citizens.
