The NRA has stepped in.

"Cities do not have the authority under the state law to ban the possession of handguns," said Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president.

Good job and now this travesty of a law will get thrown out. This is a re-run of 1982. The grabbers are once agian blowing tax payer money on something they know is illegal.

I sure as hell hope not, as long as its not allowing them to make laws, but in our favor (please let other POS laws get struck down at the same time)

A man can hope, cant he :D

No. It should only go to the California Supreme Court since pre-emption is a CA only issue. If the NRA challenged this based on the 2nd Amendment, than it might go up to the Circus.

If I remember my law class at all, it could go all the way to the SCOTUS, because the losing party will certainly appeal any decision, whether it tosses prop H or not. (assuming, of course, that the higher courts will hear it once it gets out of CSC)
