Liberals just don’t understand the “right to bare arms” or the “shall not be infringed” part of the 2nd Amendment.
Saying that high-powered, military-style weapons and ammunition have no place in San Francisco, city leaders on Thursday announced a proposal to ban the possession of hollow bullets and require anyone buying more than 500 rounds at a time to notify the Police Department.
The announcement by Mayor Ed Lee, Supervisor Malia Cohen and Police Chief Greg Suhr came less than a week after the Connecticut school massacre in which 26 people were killed by a gunman wielding a semiautomatic Bushmaster rifle. San Francisco tried banning semiautomatic weapons altogether in city limits, but was stymied by the courts; Lee said the latest proposal will also probably face legal challenges, but city officials decided “we’ve got to do something more.”
The legislation, which will be introduced by Cohen Jan. 15, would bar anyone from possessing hollow-point bullets and other ammunition meant to cause extreme damage, and require sellers – including online stores – to automatically notify police when anyone in San Francisco purchases more than 500 rounds of ammunition at a time. Cohen said she is responding not just to the recent school shooting but to ongoing violence in her district.
Liberal idiots don’t know about ammunition. The reason people use hollow-point bullets for personal defense is because hollow-points have better stopping power and general stop once they hit tissue, thus cutting down on injuring others.
“Ammunition designed especially for law enforcement and the military has no reason to be in our homes and on our streets,” Lee said, adding that he supports Sen. Dianne Feinstein‘s move to ban assault rifles at the federal level and of state lawmakers’ proposals to tighten background checks and other requirements.
If it’s good enough for law enforcement officers and the military, who fight criminals, why isn’t it good for law-abiding citizens to use to protect themselves from criminals?
