California: County Ordinances to Ban Possession and Sale of Certain Ammunition and Require Reporting of Ammunition Sales is Scheduled to be Heard Tomorrow

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Your attendance at this Hearing is critical!

Tomorrow, the San Francisco Board of Supervisor's City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee is scheduled to hear two anti-gun ordinances of serious concern to law-abiding gun owners.   This hearing will take place at City Hall in room 263 at 10:00 am.  Please attend this important committee hearing to express your opposition to these anti-gun ordinances.

File 130040 bans " the possession and sale of certain ammunition, including black talon ammunition and ammunition intended exclusively for law enforcement and military purposes."  San Francisco law already prohibits the sale of the ammunition listed in File 130040.  Unfortunately, this proposed ordinance would take that law a step further and ban the possession of these types of ammunition.  This proposal will only make criminals out of law-abiding citizens and do nothing to stop the criminal activities of others.

File 130039 requires the reporting of ammunition sales of 500 or more rounds.  This ordinance will also do nothing to stop criminal activities.  These reports will only have information on law-abiding competitive and recreational shooters, because they would be the only individuals who regularly buy ammunition in bulk to save money on the large quantities of ammunition they need to improve and maintain their skills.

Criminals by definition violate laws, especial gun control laws.  They neither obey gun bans nor register their firearms and absolutely do not comply with any gun control schemes whatsoever.  As a result, innocent law-abiding citizens are the only ones who pay the price and are left defenseless and made victims or criminals.

If you are unable to attend this committee meeting tomorrow, please call AND e-mail the county supervisors on the City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE these useless anti-gun ordinance.   Ask them to instead focus on meaningful measures relating to school safety, mental health issues, marketing of violence as entertainment for our children and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.
