I think I've said this on the forums before but it keeps coming up.

The part that frustrates me about the dog argument is it never starts from an argument of good faith. I've had people tell me "all dogs are capable of biting". But I can't take the discussion seriously if that's where we're starting.

It's like saying handguns and assault weapons are on equal ground. Sure we know both CAN do damage. And we know gun owners are expected to be responsible for the damage they do (like dog owners).

But if we're being honest, one type is just capable of doing more damage.

I can love a big goofy pitbull. But if you're trying to tell me a corgi is at the same threat level, we aren't have a real conversation.
