On Tuesday, October 29, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a package of gun control measures, including a ban on the possession of so-called “large capacity magazines,” defined as ammunition feeding devices capable of holding more than ten rounds. Coincidently, a similar bill was vetoed by Governor Brown weeks prior. Mayor Edwin Lee is expected to sign this measure into law. Even though Mayor Lee is expected to sign this measure, please call AND e-mail him urging him NOT to sign it into law. Let Mayor Lee know that criminals are not thwarted by gun control laws. Those intent on misusing firearms and committing crimes, also known as violent criminals, will obtain “large capacity magazines” illegally through the black market or making them since it is fairly simple to do so. Once this ban goes into effect, residents will have ninety days to surrender their magazines or remove them from the city. Mayor Lee can be contacted at (415) 554-6141 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
The NRA’s California legal team, Michel & Associates, will be filing a Second Amendment civil rights lawsuit as soon as Mayor Lee signs this measure into law. This lawsuit will seek to prevent this new law from taking effect and to have it declared unconstitutional. If you will be affected by the unlawful magazine ban in San Francisco, you can contact Michel & Associates to discuss your options.
There’s no point in writing Lee. This is a done deal. It always is. It’s the San Francisco way: Pass gun confiscation laws they know are unconstitutional, fight for them in court with taxpayer money, and then pass new ones when they are defeated. Wash, rinse, repeat.
It’s a study in expensive futility, but it convinces the local progressive commie gun-grabbers that their politicians are “doing something.”
