San Francisco Approves Gun, Military Recruiting Ban
Voters approved ballot measures to ban handguns in San Francisco and urge the city's public high schools and college campuses to keep out military recruiters.
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 - Washington and Chicago - 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.
Story Continues Below
Although law enforcement, security guards and others who require weapons for work are exempt from the measure, current handgun owners would have to surrender their firearms by April.
A coalition led by the National Rifle Association has said it plans to challenge the initiative in court, arguing that cities do not have the authority to regulate firearms under California law.
The military recruitment initiative won with 60 percent in favor and 40 percent against.
The measure, dubbed "College Not Combat," opposes the presence of military recruiters at public high schools and colleges. However, it would not ban the armed forces from seeking enlistees at city campuses, since that would put schools at risk of losing federal funding.
It encourages city officials and university administrators to exclude recruiters and create scholarships and training programs that would reduce the military's appeal to young adults.
"We now have the moral weight of the city behind us, and it's definitely a valuable asset to have in our corner," said Bob Matthews, an activist for the proposition.

Sounds great. With no guns or military presense in San Francisco it should be easy for straight non-asian people to march in there and take it back over.

What about the Sullivan Law in NYC? Basically the same thing.

Jim, the Sulivan Law in NYC doesn't even come close. Read up on its provisions if you can't or don't see the difference.
See:
http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/nypd/html/dclm/ldinfo.html
Actually, my only problem with the NYC legislation are the excessive licensing fees. Note that is also addresses handguns only. I actually lived in Western NYS for nearly 10 years, and found the state, county, and local governments and laws to be preferable to those here in Massachusetts. In NYS, I had no problem in securing gun permits, or even my license to handle explosives and shoot display fireworks. By contrast, in MA each of these required a political connection to be made.
The San Francisco total ban is altogether another issue. Then too, am I the only person who views conditions in California as being totally crazy, and an equally bad place to raise a normal family as Colorado and Texas, where like California, psychos and deviants flourish in mass.

I just hope SFO doesn't go the way of the French - as they are doing now. Or since they didn't learn - WATS or ... or .... I remember when they banned the rifles the State and National Guard were using - and made them keep them under special lock and key - never off the base... to the range...

They should make it mandatory that all Californians carry. Would the gun death rate exceeded the daily car-crash death rate in CA? ...I don't think so. Teach people how to drive!
PS: The riots in France were instigated by the car companies to boost sales! I say we should all get together and burn our wire brushes in protest.

I heard this on the radio: They need to declare one day out of the year as "Stupid Day." Everyone stays home except stupid people. They would be culled from the population by accidently killing each other.
Its like, why do they have the windshield sun-shades that have "Warning - Remove Before Driving" printed on them? There are always stupid people.

I think MacDonald's should have two urns of coffee now, one for stupid people and one for everybody else. The one for the stupid people should be cold and the other one can be hot. That way the stupid people won't burn themselves if they buy a cup and spill it on themselves. ;)

I find this offensive and oppressive over-government -- but I gotta say that some of the swaggerwide gunslinger crap I read makes me think that handgun control really is a good idea in urban areas populated by folks who did not learn about guns while growing up other than from what they've seen on TV and in movies.
You know, like the guy who thinks he'll be ready to deal with a rude dork at Home Depot when he gets his CCW. We may have reached a point where even non-criminal urban Americans really shouldn't be allowed to bear arms because allowing them to do so presents a danger to the general populace in urban areas -- like at Home Depot.
Ain't that a hell of a note! Drunk drivers are enough of a peril, don't need hotdog gunslingers to add to the risk of everyday peacetime life.
A requirement for some rigorous tactical training (at applicant expense) and passing a situational test with popup targets before issue of permit would make me feel a lot better. Shoot one friendly or innocent, you flunk: buy another ticket, take the course again ... and again, until you pass.
It ain't as easy as it looks on TV. I would certainly seek such refresher training before I'd carry again after 40 years. It's on my ta-do list, but not very high on the list.
The training I've found costs about as much as a good handgun. I don't support abolitionist brainless ban because it won't work -- but I would strongly support mandatory training in persuit of issue.

As it stands at the moment...civilian ccw holders have a lower crime rate than do cops, and shoot the wrong person something like a tiny fraction of what the cops do.
As a side note...California requires one to requal every 2 years for their ccw..which means about 2 hours of classroom refershers, then demonstrate safegun handling and the ability to shoot a simple pistol course of fire.
Oddly enough..Ive failed to see the anti-gun crowd pointing to data to indicate that CCW holders are a threat to society..and if they had even the smallest iota of data such was fact..you can damnbetcha that they would be touting it from the roof tops.
So your concerns are unwarranted..and frankly..put you in the moderate end of the Anti-s catagory.
Oh..btw...every shoot a "shoot/dont shoot" course of fire? Few cops can do it either....
Ive aced them several times..but even in my prime..Ive wacked the "innocent" target more than once..and Im..or was...very very very good.

But when the cops shoot an innocent it is ruled a 'justifiable shooting' by the cops own review board. I just wish I could pick my own judge & jury.

Not always..depending on the jusristiction..shooting a bad guy may get a cops dick in a sling. There are no hard and fast rules to your claim..Ive seen it both ways.

I agree, if a cop shoots a bad guy that has paid off the chief, he is in a world of hurt ;)

That sounds like a good idea.

I've seen no data beyond the rantings of a few on a newgroup. I'm not referring to you, by the way.

Perhaps they are. I hope so. Dont catagorize me yet, please.

That's the one I had in mind. Perhaps it needn't be as rigorous (speed) for civilians, but not shooting wrong is as important as shooting right -- the difference being in who it's important to.
