Clarification: Gun Ban Story

Tue Jan 4, 6:37 PM ET

SAN FRANCISCO - In a story sent Dec. 15, The Associated Press described a proposed ballot initiative on a weapons ban in San Francisco. The story should have specified that the ban would apply only to handguns of private individuals. Other firearms such as sport rifles could be kept by private owners in the city.



A separate provision of the proposed initiative was described as a ban on the sale, manufacture and distribution of handguns in San Francisco. Instead, it would apply to all firearms if the measure passes next November.


I predict that it will pass in a landslide!

Finally! some resonable, sensible gun control that will curb gun violence in the streets, and it will reduce old west-style shootouts.

It just goes to show you what happens when a governmental system loses the ideal of rights and liberties belonging to individuals. Instead, they see their juristiction as a child whose every current and future need is governments resposnibility. Gone are the days when elected officals play adminstrator of public services. Enter the days utopian socialist agendas...

The bright side of a law like this is that it is bad enough and gets to the basic point enough, to make a good case for the SCOTUS.

Seems like that would be the best place to be a criminal, plenty of unarmed sheep to victimize.

"Ban on sale, manufacture, and distribution..." all of which can only be done by FFLs in Californistan.

I've heard there are only two FFLs in the city of San Francisco.

November, unless it's withdrawn or stalled in court.

They will learn the hard way when violent crime sky rockets as it has done in every other big city where guns are heavily regulated/banned.

They deserve every bit of it too.

Never works that way.

"An increase in crime?" "More gun control."

San Francisco is gambling that they might have a chance though given the legal victories that West Hollywood (?) had in banning saturday night specials.

There is something appealling about having the most liberal city in CA advertise that they are "gun free". Perhaps is a form of Darwinism at work.

Just another reason why I never accepted a transfer to the SF bay area. Nice scenery and great weather but the gun laws are bad enough here in New York without having to out and seek something worse.
Link Posted: 1/7/2005 4:53:11 PM EDT



I don't know about you, but I don't own any guns...except the one in my pants. I own rifles, shotguns and pistols.


This is my rifle, this is my gun, this one's for fighting, this ones for fun.




Only steers and queers come from San Francisco and you don't like like a steer to me....

San Francisco tried gay marriage, and the whole country turned against it. Hopefully this gun grab will have the same effect.

BTW, wife of Mayor of SF Newsom just filed for divorce. Coincident?

Well if the ban all guns in SF, don't seem right that they still get to read SWAT and SOF ect...Maybe they will ban those types of mags too, after all it is protected by the 1st amendment: why settle for only one amendment to rape.

Because the ACLU supports the first and not the second?

will you be able to keep guns you already own? or will they have to turn those in?
Link Posted: 1/8/2005 1:56:27 AM EDT
Yeah. I've heard about that. Last time I checked, criminals didn't really care about the law though. My the chowderheads in SF will figure that one out too. I doubt it though, because we have those types of people in King County.

I don't live in King County, thank your deity of choice.

You'll have to surrender your handguns for the good of the community. You'll be able to keep your "sport rifles" though.
