San Francisco Gun Idiocy

Imagine a world with no guns. Actually there was a time when there were no guns and still mayhem and death at the hands of another were the order of the day. It has something to do with the killing nature of mankind, and his never ending attempts to find more deadly ways to wipe out someone else. Call it self-preservation; call it murder; call it warfare.

Man instinctively understands that an unarmed populace is often an enslaved populace. Nevertheless, certain segments of society are not content until they have deprived everyone of the right to be armed and protect oneself and his family. In this day in age that means a gun.

On Tues., 11/8/05, the voters in the People’s Socialist Republic of San Francisco will vote on one of the most restrictive handgun laws in the nation. In short, if you live in SF you will no longer be allowed to own a handgun, and you must turn it in to the police. I know of no quicker way to turn law abiding citizens instantly into criminals. So when the big earthquake occurs in SF and as looting begins, will SFPD be able to protect everyone? I doubt it. The police don’t think this ballot issue is correct,

And even though its officers fight violence daily, the San Francisco Police Officers Association is also opposed to the ban, saying it cannot back a measure that takes away ``the personal choice of city residents to lawfully possess a handgun for self-defense purposes.''
