Gun sales ban extended to March 1
December 29, 2005
Gun sales will be legal in San Francisco to March 1, under an
agreement announced yesterday.
The Prop H gun ban approved by voters November 8 requires an
end to gun sales in the city on January 1. But National Rifle
Association agreed to drop its bid for a temporary restraining
order (TRO) due to the extension, the City Attorney's Office reported.
Litigating the issue in court will bring more timely resolution
than the mechanism of a TRO.
The ban, which received 58% voter approval, requires San Franciscans
to get rid of their guns by April 1.
