Fairfax, VA -The California State Supreme Court has ruled that Proposition H, the draconian gun ban proposed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors violates California law. This exhausts all possible avenues for appeal by the Board of Supervisors. Proposition H would ban the manufacture, distribution, sale and transfer of firearms and ammunition within San Francisco. The National Rifle Association was the lead organization fighting this ban.
San Francisco had tried to bypass California’s firearms preemption law, and has failed. This is an important precedent, firearms law preemption will be enforced in California.
