    oh. so it should be perfectly safe to walk around the city then, since guns aren't allowed. :jerkit:

    what about OC spray? Anything legal there?

    I've gotten weird looks from people in that damn city for just having my pocket knife clipped in my pocket.

    Actually our knife laws are pretty good. You cant have a switchblade or butterfly knife, but you can concealed carry any size folding knife and any fixed blade under 2.5 inches. Larger fixed blade knife than that has to be open carried.

    Unfortunately I think there is a restriction on the size of the pepper spray you can have, something like 2.5 ounces.

    what about assisted openers? They're not switch blades, but they're pretty fast. I thought even gravity opening knives were illegal in CA?

    That's very reassuring...

    What pisses me off is the criminals aren't worrying about this at all. Just me, the dumbass that doesn't want to break the law.

    Most of them are legal, but dont be shocked if the cops take them because they dont know the laws regarding them, I think there are three or four different ones about this now. If I remember correctly for it to be legal it has to have: the blade be acted upon to open (thumbstud or hole used to open it (this is the bit that makes the carson flipper legal)) they have to have a bias towards closure (meaning the blade gets sucked in the last bit when its getting close to the handle) and a detent towards opening (have to overcome some resistance to get the blade partly open) Pretty much every AO knife I have tried is legal, the only other thing you would have to be careful of is any municipal codes.

    edit - Now that I look at what I just wrote, perhaps the laws arent that great. Convoluted just like the rest of CA's laws.

    the stupid anti-gun lawmakers seem to think that criminals will actually follow the strict gun laws.

    thats some bullshit right there. i consider myself liberal, but i believe that if you want to own a gun you should be able to. now if some crackhead decides to break into my house with a gun am i supposed to chase him off with a fuckin broom?

    btw i dont live in sf

    No, don't chase him off. In a happy gun free society you realize that they must just be hungry or need someone to listen to them. So invite them in, cook them dinner and be a shoulder to cry on. That's what we need...more compassion in the world, not hate.















    Sorry....*hippy mode off* The above statement is NOT how I think....but how I imagine many others to think.

    Yes you can still own a handgun in SF. A Federal Judge has yet to rule on Prop H, which passed last year. Also, if the handgun ban is ruled legal, it only applies to residents of the city, not people visiting.

    So wait... I can still bring a handgun? I was looking in the SF codes and I didn't see anything about handguns being banned.

    Who do I call in SF to check this? Sherif's office?

    i believe that if you are traveling through the city and not a resident you can take your guns.

    Yes, you can still have a handgun in SF. The ban has been delayed until a judge can rule on it.
