Francisco is claiming a legal victory over the National Rifle
Association, but an attorney for the group says its fight against local
gun control laws is just beginning. A 2007 city law — strengthened by then-Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi in
2011 — compels gun owners to “safely store” firearms in their homes and
generally requires them to use trigger locks. A 1994 ordinance outlawed
possession of “particularly dangerous ammunition” such as fragmenting
bullets and expanding bullets with “no sporting purpose.” The NRA first went after the restrictions in 2009, but on Monday, a
U.S. District Court judge ruled that the group’s lawyers had failed to
prove the restrictions inhibit constitutional rights to bear arms. As a
result, an injunction sought by the NRA was not granted.
The NRA is having a bad year. They couldn't pick a winner in the big election, now this.
What's your opinion? Isn't it a little weird to claim constitutional protection for certain kinds of bullets and the right to NOT safely store your guns? What's wrong with these people?
