    San Francisco Gun Ban Ruled Null and Void


    NRA Wins Big in California State Court of Appeals


    Fairfax, VA - The California State Court of Appeals announced today their decision to overturn one of the most restrictive gun bans in the country, following a legal battle by attorneys for the National Rifle Association (NRA) and a previous court order against the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.


    "Today's decision by the California State Court of Appeals is a big win for the law-abiding citizens and NRA Members of San Francisco," declared Chris W. Cox, NRA's chief lobbyist.


    In 2005, NRA sought an injunction against the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to prevent them from enacting one of the nation's most restrictive gun bans. NRA won the injunction, but the City's mayor and Board of Supervisors ignored the court order and approved a set of penalties, including a $1,000 fine and a jail term of between 90 days and six months, for city residents who own firearms for lawful purposes in their own homes.


    "We promised our California NRA members in 2005 that we would fight any gun ban instituted by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and we haven't given up that fight," continued Cox. "Today we see our second win for the Second Amendment against the San Francisco gun ban. We beat them once in court and the City's attorney appealed based on his personal disagreement with the court's first decision to overturn the ban. Now we've beaten them again. The California State Court of Appeals has upheld the state preemption law."


    Today's decision came in the form of a 3-0 opinion in favor of the lower court ruling overturning the gun ban.


    "This decision is a thoughtful and well-reasoned legal opinion," concluded Cox. "I'd like to thank our approximately 4 million members, including the hundreds of thousands of members in California, for their continued commitment to protecting our cherished freedoms."

    And to think that some gun owners claim that the NRA doesn't do anything for us.

    The court should place a fine on the mayor and each of the Board members at the personal level of at least $25,000 and more IMO. The fine should be levied immediately and if not paid within 48 hours, each of them should be jailed. Flaunting a court injunction is no better than contempt of court or perjury.

    No surprise that the liberal, anti gun news media has failed to mention this fact on channel, any paper, any radio station and if it weren't for the fact that I subscribe to NRA-ILA email alerts, I would not have known.
