Should Florida ban pit bulls?

In 1990, Florida legislators banned any municipality from passing legislation that targets a particular breed -- laws often referred as breed-specific legislation, or BSLs. Such a ban against pit-bull type dogs survives in Miami-Dade County because the ordinance passed in 1989 and pre-dates the state law.
