Springfield, MO City Councilman Doug Burlison is looking to overturn the city's 2 year old breed ban. Burlison thinks the ordinance in unenforceable...and that the people who aren't complying with the ordinance in the first place are the ones that are going to be a problem later.
The ordinance "makes an assumption that every pit bull that is out there is a vicious animal and that is not a correct assumption," said Burlison.
Burlison is hoping to gain support from other council members before issuing a formal repeal.
Another interesting statement was that the people with the health department that claim their ban is "working" refused to be interviewed for the story.
If you live in the Springfield area, be sure to offer up your support to Councilman Burlison, and best of luck to the folks in Springfield.
