    I'd like to see that one crime to which Lt. Suhr is referring.

    Would banning .50s have prevented the SBC Park stabbing? No.
    Would banning .50s have prevented Maxine Danner's strangling? No.
    Would banning .50s have prevented ANY crime in the City?

    :barf:

    I can't find the actual text of the measure anywhere, just vague phrases about 'restricting the sale of .50 caliber handguns and rifles'.

    Why is SF's government website so useless? :rolleyes:

    What does "calibur" mean? Stupid journalists. The least they can do is spell-check their subtitles.

    The Examiner, like many newspapers these days, contains only pseudo-journalism. Grab bits and pieces of the truth at random, sprinkle on a good dose of liberal ideology, then go to press.

    Probably the only error Thomas More ever made was to name his book "Utopia" instead of "San Francisco".

    Wow! San Francisco is going to require dealers to do a background check? What a new and innovative idea, it will keep all felons gun-free :rolleyes:

    Doesn't matter that the.38 is still the most frequently used gun, a .50 (what one?) was used in ONE shooting. Time to ban it.

    And I wonder why listening to liberals confuses me.

    I thought California gun law was state - preemptive, and local communities couldn't pass any gun laws.

    of course they'd never ban a gun designed for hunting. . . unless there's the possibility that it could be used in a crime or it's one of those evil hunting pistols. Even the "small" version of the Model 500 weighs 3.5lbs and is over 10" long.:banghead:

    The key words are "could" and "potential".

    Then the board should start looking at all the Home Depot's, Lowes and Walmarts. Because there is a hell of alot more "potential's" and "could's" being sold every day. :what:

    I ask, "who keeps electing these idiots?":rolleyes:

    Artherd,

    There's actually been a couple of incidents. The latest was the guy who built a tank out of his caterpiller. The one before that was somebody was supposably shooting one out of a burning building.

    Well, they killed 6 people with baseball bats here in Florida a month or two ago. I'll bet a hell of alot more people have been killed with bats than with a fifty.
    I think I'll call them up tomorrow and have them add them to the list. For God's sake! Think of the children!

    It's such a shame, San Francisco is a beautiful city occupied by a bunch of imbeciles.
