I think what ive heard is that there is no statistical difference in dog bites and deaths after and before the introduction of BSL.

In fact the Dangerous Dog Act of 1997 (uk) was studied in my law class as a badly thought out and implemented legislation rushed through as a result of a moral panic.

Another even if we do accept the premise that pit bulls are dangerous how do you decide what is a pit bull if there isn´t a pedigree? A boxer mix or an english staffordshire terrier mix or off standard could easily be mistaken for a pit bull. They are not a very distinguishable breed.

And as others have mentioned its the same with any over popular breed whether its pit bulls, goldens and labs even poodles. I know in Iceland where it takes one bad litter of aggressive dogs to ruin the reputation of a breed, irish setters got a bad rap, chihuahuas, small poodles they got a bad reputation for a while because they were overpopular and overbred and bad individuals were allowed to breed.
