The girlfriend of a Schwab executive was killed by similar dogs in her SF apartment building. It was big news at the time:

Actually there are lots of cities banning aggressive breeds of dogs:

Thanks! That site links to an opposing site that lists several states that ban local bans, including California and New York. In other words, in places like SF, Diane Whipple's neighbors were allowed to keep the obviously dangerous dogs that killed her, but she was not allowed to carry a gun to defend herself. I can't help noticing a self-defeating pattern, i.e. the same people who ban guns insist on allowing dangerous dogs.

At the very least, she should have had a sword and dagger, to make soup of her assailants.

Not sure why this would be related to politics or gun control.

Laws governing dog ownership and gun ownership are public policy, i.e. politics. If people view "politics" as only a bipartisan horse race, red team vs blue team, then I suppose they could lose sight of the actual policies involved because neither of those teams is issuing talking points memos comparing these issues. Both do talk about safety though, and these policies make the difference between life and death for many people.

The pitbull debate reminds me a lot of the gun debate in that you have your faithful on each side that have their mind made up and nothing will change that.

I tend to believe that the dogs are too dangerous and capable to be owned by your average joe.

She was killed by her own property. Why should we give a fuck? She chose to own these dogs despite not being able to control them. How is this different from an idiot getting his face kicked in by his own horse, or being gored by his own bull or sticking his head into a woodchipper he owns?

Don’t know much about dogs, but aren’t we humans larger and can probably take a dog out easily in hand to hand combat?

Dangerous misconception.
I have new neighbors with whom I've become friends, a retired teacher and her husband who worked security for Harrah's in Las Vegas and is now employed in security at Baylor. They have a large female pit bull, Coco, who is sweet as she can be. As is typical today, she is a rescue so they presumably have no real information about her earlier life. They have me over for dinner periodically and she is relegated to the back part of the house. They're going on a five or six day trip right after the first of the year and leave her in charge of a house-sitter. From what I've read, pits are very high energy dogs which need a lot of interaction with people or other dogs to dispel the pent-up energy. They don't do well when caged or in solitary circumstances for long periods of time. My fear is that on a day, even as sweet as she seems most of the time, she may turn on either of her owners or a sitter, neither of whom will be able to defend themselves against such a large animal. Whatever happened to people owning cocker spaniels or collies whose natures seem so much more docile? I think having a rescue dog today has become kind of a virtue signal as they call it.
