Ninth Circuit Gun Ruling Unanimous – San Francisco Police Code Constitutional

Gun Lock Boxes Inside Your Home Required in San Francisco.

Having to secure firearms in a locked gun storage container or disabling a firearm with trigger gun locks in one’s home is “not a substantial burden on the Second Amendment”. Violations can lead to 6 months in prison or up to a $1000.00 fine., Court of Appeals San Francisco.

Two quotes from the opinion:

“We recognize the significance of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.”

“But we also recognize that the Second Amendment right, like the First Amendment right to freedom of speech, may be subjected to governmental restrictions which survive the appropriate level of scrutiny.”

Excerpt:

“San Francisco Police Code section 4512 provides that
“[n]o person shall keep a handgun within a residence owned
or controlled by that person unless” (1) “the handgun is stored
in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock that has
been approved by the California Department of Justice,” or
(2) “[t]he handgun is carried on the person of an individual
over the age of 18.”

“S.F., Cal., Police Code art. 45,
§ 4512(a), (c)(1). Violations of section 4512 are punishable
by a fine of up to $1,000 and up to six months in prison. Id.
§ 4512(e).”
