Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) recently defended the rights of Americans who want to see dogs pitted against one another in fights (video below).

During a tele-townhall event last week, Rep. King complained about an amendment to the farm bill that would criminalize attending organized animal fights and would impose additional penalties on people who bring children to the events.

Rep. King said: “When the legislation that passed in the farm bill that says that it’s a federal crime to watch animals fight or to induce someone else to watch an animal fight, but it’s not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting, there’s something wrong with the priorities of people that think like that."
