San Francisco Supervisor Stumps For Additional Gun Regulation

You would think that one day San Francisco officials would decide that they’ve made it nearly impossible for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves with firearms and find something else to legislate out of existence.

But that day will not be today. Supervisor Mark Farrell, who represents San Francisco’s District 2, has announced his intention to introduce legislation banning carry in a wide variety of gathering places, including parks, plazas, tourist sites, and some commercial areas and thoroughfares.

Farrell told the San Francisco Examiner that he was concerned because of an upcoming rally in Crissy Field, which at least one organization is considering attending armed. But the bill itself, which was written by the anti-gun Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, seems crafted to shut down any sort of lawful carry in public, whether politically motivated or not.
