Default Petition on Whitehouse.gov

It's worth a try. And it'll only take a few minutes if you don't already have an account.

I'm trying to get the big bully breed pages on facebook to share it. Seeing as they have 100's of thousands of followers, if just a few would sign it, it would be done! Most people cant' be bothered to 'waste' two minutes of their time.

Yeah it only takes about 5 mins! I did it on my phone at school. I did it and then shared it with my instagram since a have 500 followers I thought that would help and I said if you dont sign at least repost about this so we can get the word out. So hopefully that got a few signs. But I hope you can get them to post it because that would make it a lot easier to get signatures!

You would think they would be the first to sign it considering BSL usually affects their breeds first.

I have also signed it! I didn't even know of this petition until today and it's been opened since December 19th?

The petition is ludicrous. If you want to talk about only taking five minutes, well it only takes five minutes to read through the wikipeda page on BSL and find that it HAS been tried in federal courts- multiple times- and has not been found unconstitutional.

In fact, the very wording of this petition (a violation of the 14th amendment) was actually tried as long ago as 1897 in Sentell v. New Orleans and Carrollton Railroad Company, 166 U.S. 698, and BSL was NOT found to be in violation of the 14th...

Quote:
It is true that under the Fourteenth Amendment, no state can deprive a person of his life, liberty, or property without due process of law, but in determining what is due process of law, we are bound to consider the nature of the property, the necessity for its sacrifice, and the extent to which it has heretofore been regarded as within the police power. So far as property is inoffensive or harmless, it can only be condemned or destroyed by legal proceedings, with due notice to the owner; but, so far as it is dangerous to the safety or health of the community, due process of law may authorize its summary destruction....

Although dogs are ordinarily harmless, they preserve some of their hereditary wolfish instincts, which occasionally break forth in the destruction of sheep and other helpless animals. Others, too small to attack these animals, are simply vicious, noisy, and pestilent. As their depredations are often committed at night, it is usually impossible to identify the dog or to fix the liability upon the owner, who, moreover, is likely to be pecuniarily irresponsible [irresponsible with money]. In short, the damages are usually such as are beyond the reach of judicial process, and legislation of a drastic nature is necessary to protect persons and property from destruction and annoyance. Such legislation is clearly within the police power of the state. It ordinarily takes the form of a license tax, and the identification of the dog by a collar and tag, upon which the name of the owner is sometimes required to be engraved, but other remedies are not uncommon.

This petition is a waste of time, and if forced to look into it- a waste of tax payers' dollars.
