I should be stunned, but I'm not. It appears that our ever-enlightened friends on the left coast have managed to pass a ballot referendum, banning private ownership of guns within the city limits of San Francisco. Yes, friends, once again, the feelings crowd strikes.
This is the liberal, anti-gun nut's wet dream. The complete abolition of private firearm ownership. Now, some of you out there might say, 'Hey there SAWB, if people ain't got them none of them shootin' irons, then there won't be no shooterin's!' Yeah, there won't be any more shootings by legally-armed, law-abiding citizens. However, there will still be a very well-armed contingent of gang-bangers, crack-heads, and other general low-life scum, ready, willing, and able to relieve you of your life, liberty, and property from the end of their barrel.
Notice, also, that the exemptions in the bill include police officers, active military personnel, and SECURITY GUARDS. This is important, because this loophole allows those people who feel that they are somehow more important than you and I, to hire large, well armed, security guards to ferry themselves back and forth. Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, and Rosie O'Donnell, I'm looking directly at you.
Now, getting back to the article, the feel-gooders have also passed an initiative that limits the presence of military recruiters in the public schools of San Francisco. Fantastic. According to the article, the supporters hope that this ballot initiative will give the anti-war/anti-recruiter crowd the 'moral authority' to tell the recruiters, who are there legally, to shove off.
Can we get a collective hobby for the voters of San Francisco...
