This debate always angers people but like you I'm not sure where I stand on banning breeds. Pit bulls have been banned in the UK for a number of years now but there are still dog attacks in the news all the time. I think one of the most recent child deaths was from a malamute. There are breeds who have been bred to kill and breeders and owners who specifically look for that trait. I think in the majority of cases the owner is at fault. Having said that I don't want to be more wary of pit bull types or staffies (they replaced the pit bull in popularity when pits were banned) but I am. I think it's knowing the damage they could do.

In Scotland there was a recent campaign which said they wanted all large breed dogs to be muzzled when outside. That's just ludicrous and thankfully is very unlikely to happen.
