Breed Specific Legislation or "BSL" is exactly what it sounds like...regulation of your right to own or, in many cases, not own, a dog based solely on the breed or "type" of dog - not your responsibility as an ownerBSL can also refer to regulations and/or requirements placed only on a specific breed of dog and their owners. 
 
No matter how you define it, BSL targets all dogs of a breed -- the innocent as well as the guilty, and it removes the responsibility from the dog's owner and towards the dog itself.  Simple common sense tells you that laws are created to punish or deter the actions of humans - not those of animals. 
 
2006 is gearing up to be significant with respect to BSL, and it is important to band together and fight for the rights of dog owners everywhere.  We must fight this battle together, overcome our personal beliefs and issues, if we are to be successful against narrow-minded legislators who are only interested in making headlines.  Ultimately, failure to do so will surely result in losing the right to own our dogs. 
 
Laws are being proposed every day that would take away our rights to own particular dogs for no reason other than their breed - the way they look, the hype that surrounds them.  BSL is the politician's inadequate and uneducated band-aid solution to address the gushing "wound" of irresponsible ownership and lack of personal accountability.

I certainly don't claim to be an "expert" on BSL, I am simply a concerned pit bull owner who wants to help other owners of dogs targed by breed discrimination.  For me personally, the fight against BSL is incredibly intimidating, so I hope this helps and encourages people to stand up for their rights and their dogs.
