Mississippi House Bill No. 1261 Criminalises dogs.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier -- Dave
A bill being introduced in Mississippi would allow a warrantless search of any household containing "American pit bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, American bulldog, and any other pure bred or mixed breed dog that  is a combination of these dog breeds" specifically "a law enforcement officer, at any time, may enter the premises where a dangerous dog is kept, or is believed to be kept, for an on - site inspection of the premises"

For reference pictures of these dogs are included in this post. If that looks a bit like your dog and you live in Mississippi, you would be giving up the right to object to a unwarranted search of your home.  You would also be subject to a myriad of specific rules about how long your leash is (maximum three feet) an require posting a warning sign stating that your dog is dangerous and living with the fact that if it every escapes your property police are fully within their right to shoot it.
