San Francisco Gun Shop Legislated Out Of Business

posted on September 24, 2015

And then there were none. Come November, not a single gun store will exist in San Francisco after High Bridge Arms announced plans this week to close. The shop was the last holdout in a staunchly anti-gun climate. 

The final straw for High Bridge Arms was looming legislation that would mandate that all firearm and ammunition sales be videotaped and the data transmitted to the San Francisco Police Department. “What we don’t do is voluntarily give private information to the police department,” said High Bridge’s Steve Alcairo.

But with action expected on the proposal this month, that’s exactly what High Bridge would have been facing. Amid City Supervisor Mark Farrell claiming that more gun control equals less crime, he’d be wise to listen to fellow San Francisco resident and past “Top Shot” champion Chris Cheng, who reminds us that criminals will still be able to acquire their firearms.
