Daily Digital Jan. 27: Support for Vaccine Choice, Protection Against Dogs, Volunteer Fire Department Needs Help


Daily Digital, I’m Courtney Carter and its January 27th.

State lawmakers come together for the legislative session to make laws that could protect you. This time there’s a bill to target dangerous dogs that roam the streets. The Dangerous Dog Act would allow for cops to kill a pitbull or other aggressive dog if it shows threatening behavior, is without a leash or collar, and is running free. The bill calls for a leash law that requires a leash that is chain rated for up to 300lbs. But this bill also excuses aggressive behavior in dogs that are tortured or provoked, say by someone trying to break into your home or a dog that is used in a dog fighting ring.

The conversation continues over the vaccination requirement at the state capital, this time the Mississippi Tea Party is showing support for the bill that allows you to choose whether or not to vaccinate your children. State Tea Party Chairman Laura Van Overshelde says this goes along with Tea Party Beliefs: a constitutionally limited government.
