The San Francisco Handgun Ban
Michelle Malkin has a post up about the San Francisco handgun ban.
I’ll cite the same section from the AP story as she did.
‘The gun ban prohibits the manufacture and sale of all firearms and ammunition in the city, and makes it illegal for residents to keep handguns in their homes or businesses.
Only two other major U.S. cities â€” Washington and Chicago â€” have implemented such sweeping handgun bans.
With all precincts reporting early Wednesday, 58 percent of voters backed the proposed gun ban while 42 percent opposed it.”
To begin with this wasn’t overwhelmingly supported, 58% is not what I would call a clear mandate. It has yet to be tested in court so it may not stand and more importantly this assumes that people abide by it.
The police are not going to conduct random searches of homes so the only way that someone is going to get caught is if they use it to defend themselves, if someone turns them in or if there is some type of accident.
There are a lot of possibilities here. Think about it.
