    How can anyone live in that shithole?

    (CBS 5) SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom hailed new proposed city gun legislation, and he did it Wednesday from the neighborhood most plagued by gun violence.

    “Enough is enough,” said Newsom in the city’s Bayview district. “We need common sense gun control.”

    The announcement came nearly one year after a judge struck down a law banning handgun possession in the city.

    One part of the measure outlaws the possession or sale of guns on any city-owned property, expanding the current ban from buildings like City Hall and schools to include outdoor locations like city parks.

    Mayor Newsom said he also hopes to extend the ban to public housing complexes, but federal laws may make that complicated.

    The proposed legislation would also require people who commit crimes with guns to sign up with the police department, then probation officers could keep better tabs on them.

    Another aspect would require all gun owners to store their guns disabled with a trigger lock or placed in a locked-box. Authorities said lock boxes would help to keep legal guns from being stolen and then later used illegally.

    "It is fair to say that a majority of gun crime is committed with illegal guns," District Attorney Kamala Harris said. “It’s a reality that a lot of weapons and guns that we find in connection with a homicide are stolen."

    The idea, she contends, is to remind legal gun owners how to behave.

    "Just because you legally possess a gun in the sanctity of your locked home doesn't mean that we're not going to walk into that home and check to see if you're being responsible and safe in the way that you conduct your affairs," Harris said.

    San Francisco's only gun shop is also a target of the proposed legislation, which would require it and any future gun shops in the city to send police officials a gun sales list every six months.

    Even though criminals already don't follow the law, city leaders believe any gun crackdown makes the city safer.

    “It’s just time and it’s the right thing to do,” said Harris, citing existing laws in Alameda and Los Angeles counties that are similar to the proposed ones for San Francisco.

    Why not just get all gun owners to register like sex offenders. They can't live within a certain distance of a house and have to alert their neighbors to their presence. That should stop it.:ugh2:

    :ugh: good thing i don't live there. so if my house got broken into i'd have to fuck with getting the trigger lock off or unlocking the box before I can use it? by the time i do that, i'd be dead.

    if they want to lower gun crimes, make it easier to conceal/open carry, and carry on public land. but try getting common sense through a liberal is like trying to get an elephant to walk carefully in a china shop

    If someone broke into your house then it's lose-lose. If you do get to the gun in time you get prosecuted for murder. If you don't then your roommates/wife/girlfriend/family/priest/etc. will get in trouble for allowing a criminal access to a firearm. Go San Francisco!

    Well, we all know the criminals will keep trigger locks on their illegal guns, or have the courtesy of storing them in gun lockup. Sounds airtight, a real winning piece of legislation.


    Or, it's moronic, and makes it sound like San Fransisco really doesn't care about it's citizens safety. This is an outcry for the bleeding-heart liberal vote. Why in the hell would anyone believe that it would work? It is just an open invitation for criminals.

    Fixed, because aside from the retarded firearm/emissions laws, horrible traffic, high gas and real estate prices this is a great state. We just need to invent a time machine, go back to the mid to late 1980's and close the state.

    So far no, just paper or other biodegradable bags. I also heard something about SF banning styrofoam food containers but I dont know if that one passed as well.

    That's retarded about the bags. The grocery stores here have collection bins outside to turn in your old plastic bags.

    Trader Joes gives you a raffle ticket for a $25 Gift Certificate if you bring in your own bag or buy a reusable one.
