    The NRA has sued the city of San Francisco targeting three provisions of city law based on the Heller decision. The Heller decision hinged on whether or not a provision interfered with individual’s ability to defend himself or herself with a firearm. San Francisco’s code has several analogous provisions including:

    “A requirement that handguns in San Francisco homes be kept in a locked cabinet or disabled with a trigger lock.”

    “A ban on the sale of fragmenting bullets.”

    “A city ordinance that prohibits the discharge of firearms within city limits.”

    About time the Republic of Sin Francisco gets taken down a few pegs.... again. That "lock it away where you can't get at it when you need it" law is insane. About the same as passing a law requiring one to partially dismantle one's vehicle when letting it stand overnight in the garage.....

    about par for that city. I hope the NRA manage to force them back into the remainder of the Union... at least on this score.
