California Supreme Court Rejects Proposition H Appeal!

More bad news for the anti-Civil rights hounds in San Francisco. According to a recent press release by the Second Amendment Foundation, the California Supreme Court unanimously rejected an appeal by the City of San Francisco seeking to uphold its illegal and unconstitutional handgun ban.

I join the Second Amendment Foundation in hoping that this latest ruling will finally drive the point home to the citizens of San Francisco that you can’t simply vote away someone’s rights. Outright bans of classes of weapons is to the Second Amendment is what outright bans of specific denominations of Christianity is to the First Amendment. Although sometimes I wonder if the myopic extreme-left politicians in San Francisco might not try that route as well if they thought they could get away with it.

The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land, and rather than wasting time fending off attacks on the Constitution, politicians would be better served to actually attack the real issues confronting the nation today. For many, the root of gun control is concern over crime. Therefore rather than working to deny the Rights of Americans, we should actually be tackling the real issues contributing to crime in America. Unfortunately tackling the real issues is hard, and scapegoating the firearm is easy. It takes real leadership to actually confront the issues, and it’s clear that San Francisco’s elected officials lack that quality.

Until next time!
