This makes me sad/angry

This afternoon I thought I would enter some future trials. I was thinking of entering this one. This is in the premium.
This is what I found. Kind of scarey. Will our breed be next?

NOTICE-CITY ORDINANCE REGARDING Pit Bull Terriers

The city of Springfield, MO has an ordinance pertaining to Pit Bulls. Our club will obtain the necessary forms, but any owner of a pit bull (American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier) or any dog exhibiting these distinguishing characteristics will need to abide by this ordinance. When not showing your dog(s) you will need to have yoour dog(s) crated. When it is off show site it will have to be transported in a crate in your vehicle and muzzled when in public. Your dog(s) will NOT have to be muzzled when on our private show site.

I don't currently own a dobe, but I do own an APBT. Damn. My car is too small to fit a crate in. (I have a soft sided crate in my trunk for trials.) I live in the northeast and am constantly having to make sure that any trials I enter are not in a BSL area. It's hard. And emotionally draining. There are some dog parks in my area that won't allow dobermans, so I fear that dobes might be next on the "vicious" dog list.

This site shows even more.

And to top it off I found this as well.

If I were a breeder i would be concerned.

The latest anti dog bill in Indiana is being shoved through so fast it will make
your head spin. It went to committee on Feb 11 practically unannouced and
morphed from an anti cruelty bill to an anti breeders bill. It is set to be
voted on in the house of representatives by Fri Feb 20th.
If a person sells more than 5 dogs in one year (think ONE average sized litter
of Goldens or Labs), he will have to be licensed as a 'pet dealer' by the state.
It requires a special clearance from the vet to breed first as well as stringent
and impossible regulations for housing such as no rust on your fence, temps
between 65 and 78 degrees (if a person doesn't have air conditioning or or wants
to move his 5 week old litter to an outside kennel run in beautiful 60 degree
weather I guess he is just out of luck), etc etc etc.you get the picture. It's
a foot in the door and only the beginning of more to come.
For more info on this bill and info on how to email your opposition, go to the
NAIA TRUST website NAIA Trust | For the protection of animals, animal owners, and animal enterprises or one of the many other pet law type
websites.If you live in Indiana, please call 1-800-382-9842 to register your
opposition to HB 1468 immediately. It's easy and only takes a minute. They
will tell you who your state representative is and tell him you oppose HB 1468.
