He takes into account the thoughts of his opponents and clearly states and analyzes their point of view. Author’s position is very reasonable, and while trying to defend his viewpoint in the essay he nevertheless manages to find the compromise between two opposing sides to benefit both of them.
While there are many strong sides in the essay, writer’s position is too much loyal as he pays the main attention to the pit bull breeders’ point of view and analyzes the position of only some of his opponents. He doesn’t take into account the point of view of victims, who experienced pit bulls’ attacks. The writer should also consider the interests of people who live in the neighborhoods where pit bulls are bred as these people experience constant fear of these dogs.
