    That will be a huge help -- if it gets reported by the MSM.

    well we're doing our best to report the heck out of it on tribe.net which is a really wide network of people, and bonus, it is full of the type of people who would vote yes, but are easily being convinced the law is a joke.

    Did that really come from the police? Wow! :what:

    That just goes to show you that just when you think you've got everything figured out, life can go and suprise you.

    While it was good, and unexpected, I did get a hint of 'it's bad because it includes off-duty and retired officers'.

    Hopefully, though, that is not the message they are trying to convay.

    From their letter:
    That was very refreshing to read from the city of SF! They aren't very liberty minded about citizen's rights - but they hit the right spot here.

    I'd be shocked if the police took any other stance.

    1. Disarm all law abiding citizens
    2. Violent crime in the city goes up
    3. Police get blamed for increase in area crime.
    4. City forced to hire more officers
    5. City bankrupts itself
    6. Police layoffs

    Also, the way I understand it, the police would not be allowed to carry firearms off duty if this were to pass. :rolleyes:

    Who cares what they do in SF? They can't even keep the bums from urinating and defecating on the streets, I don't see how they can enforce an anti handgun ordinance.

    Great letter from the police. I commend them. I'm glad to see the mention of McCullough in their letter. He's one of a handful of people in Oakland with a CCW. He's probably the only working-class black man with a permit in Oakland. I wouldn't be surprised if he's the only working class black man to EVER have a permit in Oakland, despite the fact that lower-income blacks live in more dangerous areas and are far more likely to be targets of criminals than well-to-do white people. The letter made a point of that. Poor people have a right to life and to defend their lives, and they can't afford gated communities and they don't have bodyguards (like Mayor Newsom does).

    It annoys me when I see people on this board saying such bad things about SF. Sure, there are some nuts there like Diane Feinstein, but there are also some sane and open-minded people.

    By the way, on the subject of off-duty police officers: Just about the only people this law would affect would be off-duty police officers. I assume that most gun owners in SF would just ignore it, but off-duty police officers would actually have to comply with it until a court throws it out.

    of course

    If it is defeated (and hopefully when) the proponents
    will tell the MSM that the mean evil gun lobby shot
    down their common-sense reasonable gun bill.
    No mention of San Francisco Police Officers Assn.

    Almost sounds like it was written by one of us.

    I wanted to point this out:

    Job #1 of the second amendment is to keep would be tyrants in awe.

    Mission accomplished.
