And in San Francisco of all places! [Big Grin]

Judge Rejects San Francisco's Handgun Ban
By Susan Jones

June 13, 2006

(CNSNews.com) - A San Francisco Superior Court judge on Monday threw out the city's voter-approved ban on handguns, ruling that state law trumps local jurisdictions in gun control matters.

Proposition H, approved last November with 58 percent of the vote, banned the possession, manufacture, distribution, sale and transfer of firearms and ammunition within San Francisco. (Exceptions were made for specific professional purposes, such as police or security work.)

The National Rifle Association sued the city, arguing that state law preempts local gun control ordinances. The judge agreed.

Both the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation called the decision a victory for gun owners across the state.

"The right of citizens to be safe in their homes and communities can never be subject to a popular vote," said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb.

"It is astonishing that in a city where the leaders preach how open they are to diversity, they encouraged voters to blindly march to the polls last November to practice a blatant, egregious and despicable form of social bigotry against their neighbors and fellow citizens," Gottlieb said.

"Working to deprive others of their property and their right to self-defense just because you don't like firearms is morally repugnant, and with today's ruling, the people who pushed Proposition H last fall should feel ashamed of themselves."

The National Rifle Association accused the authors of Proposition H of either intentionally misleading voters or grossly disregarding California law.

"Regrettably, the biggest losers were the voters in this municipality who had to bear the considerable financial burden to satisfy the careless political whim of their elected officials," the NRA said in a statement on its website.

"The NRA is determined not to see this gross injustice happen again and will fight any effort by the gun control lobby and their allies in elected office to resurrect this flawed measure."

Under California law, state police issue handgun permits. San Francisco Superior Court Judge James Warren ruled that such authority implicitly prohibits local jurisdictions from imposing their own handgun rules.

Warren also raised concerns about the impact Proposition H might have on communities surrounding San Francisco.

"California has an overarching concern in controlling gun use by defining the circumstances under which firearms can be possessed uniformly across the state, without having this statewide scheme contradicted or subverted by local policy," he said in his ruling.

I don't think we have heard the last of "Preparation H".The Liberals and Fags
will probably appeal it.At least the
Superior Court showed some brains for
a change and did the right thing.

Even tho they may appeal it all the way to the Supreme Court the Court itself is not bound to hear the case. [Big Grin]

I wonder... just who is bankrolling this kind of stupid stuff out there? [Confused]

Kali Pinko Kommie Fags, who else?

Frankly, I wish Kali would just secede from the Union. We could break out the old 49 star flags or maybe we could make P.R. a state.
