The City of San Francisco has dropped their illegal ban on the possession of firearms in public housing. Read the full presser from NRA here:
Fairfax, Va. – An NRA-led coalition of self-defense civil rights groups including the Second Amendment Foundation and the California Rifle & Pistol Association (CRPA) has prevailed in a Second Amendment lawsuit challenging a ban on firearm possession in San Francisco public housing residences.
“This success is further vindication of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Heller ruling upholding the Second Amendment as protecting a fundamental, individual civil right for all law-abiding Americans,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox.
The San Francisco Housing Authority (SFHA) and the property management company that oversees San Francisco’s public housing projects have agreed to completely remove a lease provision banning guns in the residences.
And while that’s great news, the part of the press release that really gets me excited is this:
NRA is preparing additional legal challenges in San Francisco and Los Angeles regarding gun control ordinances that were not challenged in the current lawsuit. In fact, NRA’s lawyers have already placed San Francisco and Los Angeles on notice of pending litigation concerning several other gun banning ordinances. The NRA-led coalition will likely also pursue civil rights actions against California itself as well as several other municipalities to challenge ill-conceived and unconstitutional state and local gun bans in the near future.
It pleases me to no end to see California, my beloved home state being forced (kicking and screaming at times) on the path back to the concepts of individual liberty that it once was known for. While I don’t think NRA alone can restore California to it’s former glory, maybe the victories in San Francisco and the pending legal action will provide the necessary wake up call to citizens of California to “throw the bums out”, and get rid of the elected officials that are turning my former home state into a socialist dystopia.
