Huh?

The CITY of San Diego did what and when did they do it? I thought we had a STATE pre-emption law which prevents localities from enacting such laws.

See this topic in GD to see what 1911greg is talking about.

As far as preemption, that'll never stop a city from trying to enact their own gun laws and enforcing them...it just means a court battle after somebody has their life ruined over the matter.

The San Diego ordnance does not ban assault weapons. It allows a police officer to take temporary possession (48 hours) of any assault weapon found in plain sight while in public.

Possible harrassment maybe, but not a ban.

It goes a little further than that. It is a tool designed for officer safety purposes which allows the officer to temporarily take possession to prevent the threat to the officer or public. Provides for return to the lawful owner should it be determined that a crime did not occur. This occurs all the time in cities across the US, not just San Diego or even Kalifornia. Police come to investigate a crime and temporarily remove all firearms, even from a residence for a short, cooling down period until an investigation can be completed.

That happened to a buddy of mine once. They took his shotgun with a folding stock and his 1911 for 48 hrs. He went and got them back afterwards with no hassle. They even gave him a couple of new gunlocks for free. It had to do with the "cooling down"period (cops had been called for a domestic disturbance).

Funny thing is, he had a couple more pistols stashed somewhere else in the house that he didnt turn over so if he did something stupid, confiscation wouldnt have helped out.
