Dozens of owners urge legislators to abandon a proposed pit bull ban
Legislators will likely not pass the bill, but a growing group of dog owners is reacting quickly and loudly to stop the legislation before it can get anywhere.
Sen. Brian Taniguchi, chairman of the Judiciary and Government Operations Committee, said there will likely be no hearing on this proposal.
"I'm not really inclined to hear this bill," said Taniguchi (D, Manoa-Moiliili-McCully-Makiki). "It was a little surprising that we got such a huge number of people. I've gotten a lot of e-mails and faxes on this."
