San Francisco Police Officers Association Opposes Prop H- San Francisco Gun Ban

Friday, October 14, 2005

On November 8, San Francisco voters will go to the polls to vote on Proposition H-a citywide gun ban. If Proposition H passes, it will become the most restrictive gun control law in the nation; even more restrictive than the egregious Washington, D.C., gun ban that NRA-ILA is currently working to overturn in Congress! The ordinance would ban residents from possessing any handgun and they would be forced to turn over their handguns within 90 days. The sale, manufacture, and distribution of all firearms would be prohibited!

The San Francisco Police Officers Association (POA) represents the more than 2,200 sworn officers serving on the SFPD. This week, a statement appearing on SF-POA’s website (www.sfpoa.org) details, in no uncertain terms, the group’s strong opposition to Proposition H.

A quote from the statement reads, “The San Francisco Police Officers Association (POA), representing men and women dedicated to a life of service to public safety, must evaluate any legislative effort affecting its membership. After careful review and analysis, the POA does not support the proposed ballot initiative that would nullify the personal choice of city residents to lawfully possess a handgun for self-defense purposes. When we disarm honest, law-abiding citizens, we contribute to empowering criminals and endangering society-at-large. The San Francisco Police Officers Association supports the right of our members (active and retired), neighbors, and law-abiding citizens in this city to choose reasonable means of self-defense while in their homes or businesses. We oppose Proposition H, the S.F. Gun Ban Initiative.”

The only thing standing in the way of Proposition H passing is you! To educate and mobilize Bay Area pro-gun supporters, NRA-ILA unveiled a website dedicated exclusively to exposing the truth about Proposition H. The website- www.StopSanFranban.com-is designed to provide you with one-stop-shopping for the information and tools you will need to ensure Proposition H is defeated on November 8. Please be sure to visit the site and then forward this link to your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners, both inside and outside of San Francisco, to ensure the collective voices of America’s gun owners are heard loudly and clearly in the months leading up to, and especially on, November 8! Those of you who don’t live directly in San Francisco, but reside nearby, should visit the site frequently for updates on what you can do locally to ensure this deplorable proposition is defeated.
