In San Fran

Their onerous gun restrictions have been upheld: S

an Francisco can require handgun owners to keep their weapons locked when stored at home and can ban bullets that expand or splinter on contact, a federal judge has ruled in rejecting a National Rifle Association-backed effort to block enforcement of the local gun laws.

In denying an injunction sought by gun owners, U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg said Monday that neither city ordinance appeared to violate standards set by the U.S. Supreme Court in its 2008 ruling that declared a constitutional right to possess firearms at home for self-defense.

    We’ll see how long this lasts.

    How long between SF banning hollowpoints and someone being charged for manslaughter because their FMJ rounds overpenetrated and hit someone else?

    “that neither city ordinance appeared to violate standards set by the U.S. Supreme Court”


    From DC v Heller opinion (NOT the syllabus)

    What the court was asked about (page 1)
    …District of Columbia law also requires residents to keep their lawfully owned firearms,such as registered long guns, “unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock or similar device” unless theyare located in a place of business or are being used for lawful recreational activities.

    What the court looked at (page 58)
    We must also address the District’s requirement (as applied to respondent’s handgun) that firearms in the home be rendered and kept inoperable at all times.

    What the court held(page 64)
    In sum, we hold that the District’s ban on handgun possession in the home violates the Second Amendment, as does its prohibition against rendering any lawful firearm in the home operable for the purpose of immediate self-defense.

    So, we’ll just spend the next 40 years arguing over the exact definition of “infringed.”

    Then we’ll move on to that “angels dancing on the head of a pin” thing.

    I thought all bullets expanded upon impact. (They didn’t clearly define what the rounds were impacting?)

    Markie Marxist sez: “Of course guns have to be kept locked up! How are our Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals supposed to break into someone’s home and kill him if he can shoot back? No justice until socialism! It’s just common communist sense to make people lock up their guns! After all, we’re trying to destabilize American capitalist society, not strengthen it! Just ask Comrade President Obama – he’ll tell you all about our agenda for bringing down capitalist America! I mean, he’s doing it, isn’t he?”
