SF Gun Ban Shot Down: Perfect Final Tribute to Charlton Heston!

SF Gun Ban Shot Down: Perfect Final Tribute to Charlton Heston!

By John Lillpop

In November of 2005, wrong-headed voters passed a bill, known as Measure H, that would have forbidden San Francisco residents from owning hand guns. If this goofy bit of unconstitutional meddling had been allowed to stand, law-abiding citizens would have been disarmed.

Criminals, on the other hand, would simply disregard the dumb 'Frisco law and go about the business of stealing and murdering, knowing full well that without guns to defend themselves, law-abiding folk would be easy prey.

Of course, Measure H is clearly unconstitutional and was immediately recognized as such by anyone who has even heard of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Unfortunately, most San Franciscans are unaware that the 2nd Amendment even exists, much less that it is enforceable in The City. Only a lethal combination of ignorance and arrogance allowed Measure H to make it to the ballot box in 2005.

However, the California Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that Measure H cannot be implemented, thereby shooting down this foolish bit of chicanery by leftist trouble makers.

What a perfect final tribute to Charlton Heston and the noble cause which he championed!
