The National Rifle Association has won a court victory in California, as a state appeals court upheld a lower court decision overturning a sweeping San Francisco law penalizing gun ownership. The NRA writes:
In 2005, NRA sought an injunction against the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to prevent them from enacting one of the nation's most restrictive gun bans. NRA won the injunction, but the City's mayor and Board of Supervisors ignored the court order and approved a set of penalties, including a $1,000 fine and a jail term of between 90 days and six months, for city residents who own firearms for lawful purposes in their own homes.
"We promised our California NRA members in 2005 that we would fight any gun ban instituted by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and we haven't given up that fight," continued Cox. "Today we see our second win for the Second Amendment against the San Francisco gun ban. We beat them once in court and the City's attorney appealed based on his personal disagreement with the court's first decision to overturn the ban. Now we've beaten them again. The California State Court of Appeals has upheld the state preemption law."
How is it that politicians can ignore a court order and not be held in contempt of court? This is the same San Francisco which conducted illegal homosexual marriages, of course. So much for the rule of law. And lefties aver that that we have to fear lawlessness from Bushitler?
