Oder of the California Court of Appeals

2nd Amendment Foundation News Release

San Fran Chronicle

In a unanimous decision today, the California Court of Appeals ruled that the City of San Francisco’s handgun ban is illegal under state law, upholding a lawsuit filed by the Second Amendment Foundation and several other groups.

San Francisco's ban on handguns, blocked by a legal challenge since voters approved it in November 2005, suffered a possibly fatal blow Wednesday when a state appeals court ruled that local governments have no authority under California law to prevent people from owning pistols.

Suddenly I don't feel so bad about the ridiculous gun legislation that Bush signed this week (though that doesn't mean I still wouldn't like to see that repealed as well).
