Lawmakers Form Pit Bull Task Force

Maryland lawmakers will review the impact of a ruling by the state's highest court that concluded pit bulls are an inherently dangerous breed and consider legislation in response, the presiding officers of the 
Maryland General Assembly announced Tuesday.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael Busch announced the members of a 10-member task force in a letter to Gov. Martin O'Malley.

"This decision will have profound effects on dogs, dog owners, property owners, tenants and landlords," Miller, D-Calvert, and Busch, D-Anne Arundel, wrote. "Therefore, we are appointing a Joint Task Force to study the court decision and make recommendations on possible legislation."

It's all in how you raise them, most pits are very gentle loving dogs, but like any dog the owner is the problem.
