Thread: Victoria is Completly ****ed Up!

    I had an ACD in a unit in Sydney. Never an issue, nothing was ever destroyed and my place was always clean.

    Just because you have seen something horrible once or twice does NOT mean that every one and every thing is like that.

    Anyone can own any size dog in an apartment, the individuals ability dictates how well it works not the breed of dog.

    Look at New York - majority of dog owners are in apartment blocks and the majority have better socialised and trained animals than those on acreage...

    Why? Has there been a mass killing by someone armed with an automatic rifle since Port Aurthur?

    Actually we DO have automatic and semi automatic weapons in Australia the thing is that they are only available to appropriate people, so it's a great example of in the right hands with the right legislation restriction of ownership works and not eradication.

    I don't know why you keep banging on about automatic rifles? The murder weapon of choice is the handgun. There are 300+ firearm related deaths in this country each year.

    Take your hand off it Clubsprint. As I said, violence with guns in on the increase, a ban has not worked. I could go out right now and acquire an illegal weapon quite easily if I wanted to - however I would rather do it the correct way and get a firearm licence.

    What I think is an important thing here is to remember this.
    Laws are in place for those of us who decide to live by them.
    So this means, I am a law abiding citizen because I obay the law.
    The ones that break the law are not, and no law put in place will deture them from getting their ill gotten gains.
    You can disagree but this is the truth.
    You either follow the law and do what you can to live your life happy.
    Or go to the other side of the law and see what you can get out of that faster most times but you are always looking over your shoulder.

    Yep. Should people be allowed to have Tosas, Hyeenas, Lions, Crockadiles?

    IMHO It's not the number oif bites. It's about getting rid of certain breeds.

    Maliciously tarnish the name? Have you done a google news search latelly? The name has already been tarnished. I'd argue that they ever had a good name.

Oh and did you know that there were more children murdered than killed or injured by dogs of any breed in the last 10 years? How about we stop people from having children?
    Oh that makes lots of sense. Yeah lets ban cars ha ha ha. I think the analogy you're looking for is speed limits.05 etc. Actually cars are a good illustration of peoples lack of ability to make good decisions.

    Maybe it was bad policy. I'd take you more seriously if you took the policy to task instead of hysterically calling me names.

    Hardly, these breeds will continue to flourish overseas

    That's it. You have just proven you are not interested in a rational discussion. You will hang on to your opinions like a dog with lockjaw, regardless of the fact that you cannot back them up with any logical arguments.

    You have consistently ignored the logical arguments we have offered you and only seem to comment on the weaker or emotionally laden ones.

    That is not a fair debate, it is inflammatory and rather childish and a total waste of everybody's time.

    Clubsprint I think you really don't know what you are saying.
    You say this or that and it is only to get people to write back to your posts.
    It is time to grow up as this is not kindergarten.
    We are adults so we don't need to answer to you and some of those way out there remarks you love to write.
    What you have to say was at one time constructive but now it is done to be on the other side of the fence and it is exactlly what you want.
    I would rather see something that means something not just the crap that you write.
    There are people here who are well educated so take a leaf out of their book and get yourself an education so you can make educated responses.
    What you have done is made yourself a person who no one will want to talk to by responding to your post so you could be in for a lonely time here.
