The White House denounced dog breed-specific legislation, such as Denver’s ban on pit bulls, as “a bad idea” in a statement last month. So, how will the edict from Washington impact Denver?
Not at all—at least for now.
The White House statement, which was in response to a petition calling for the federal prohibition of such laws, was more of an empty threat than an indication of any potential federal action against dog laws like Denver’s—but it does reflects a rising trend against breed-specific legislation.
