After hearing NRA attorneys argue against the legality of Proposition Ha citywide gun banSuperior Court Judge James Warren prevailed on the City of San Francisco to hold off on enforcing its gun possession ban while he takes time to consider the issues involved. The judge's ruling will be issued within 90 days of March 20, 2006.


This means implementation of the ban on long guns on March 1, and on handguns as of April 1, will not be enforced while the judge reviews the case.


NRA-ILA is heartened by the judge's actions, and appreciates his attention to detail as he examines state and local laws, and considers the right of San Franciscans to choose to possess firearms.


It is troubling that San Franciscanswho pride themselves on respecting the right of people to make individual lifestyle choicesare attempting to deprive city residents of the right to choose whether owning a firearm is appropriate for defending their families based on their individual circumstances.  And it is ironic that San Francisco officials have acknowledged that the only violence prevention program in San Francisco that works is "Operation Ceasefire," a "Project Exile"-derived program that targets felons who illegally possess guns.
