Yesterday, the state supreme court flicked away San Francisco's feeble attempt to bad handguns. Or, in the words of CBS 5, the court "unanimously rejected the city's appeal of a lower-court ruling that sharply limited the ability of localities to regulate firearms." This is the final nail in the Prop H coffin, an initiate that voters passed in 2005.
Proposition H barred the possession, manufacture, and sale of firearms by anyone in San Francisco, save law enforcement officers and "others who needed guns for professional purposes." This initiative would have gone against residents' constitutional right to bear arms.
