Quote taken slightly out of context. But I can live with it. I think I added "gun control doesn't work" at the end to emphasize what I meant. But Kelly's a good guy, so I'm not going to complain!

;)

ETA: if you read the quote right - it sound like I am just referring to the guns in my own house!!! ROFL!!!


Ammunition regulation

Council members voted 7-0 Tuesday to tighten up the city's gun and ammunition laws, even though there are no dealers licensed with the city to sell firearms or ammunition in Oakland.

The changes to the law, supporters said, are part of a Bay Area-wide attempt to tighten up cities' and counties' gun ordinances. In Oakland, that will require anyone purchasing ammunition to submit a thumbprint, require people who want to sell ammunition to go through the same city permitting process as firearms dealers, and require people who reasonably should know they have lost a firearm to report it missing to police.

The vote was made over the objections of some gun-rights advocates, including the Redwood City-based Calguns Foundation.

"Where I live, there are guns everywhere," said Kevin Thomason, a member of the Calguns Foundation who lives in East Oakland. "Do I think the law is going to do anything to get rid of them? No. It's not going to do a darn thing."

City officials said while it may not solve all of Oakland's gun problems, they believe the Bay Area-wide effort will pay dividends. The vote was unanimous, with Council member Larry Reid (Elmhurst-East Oakland) absent. Reid co-sponsored the ordinance, which comes up for a final vote Feb. 16, with Quan.

"People always say to me, 'Is there anything we can do to reduce the shootings and the murders?'" Quan said before Tuesday's meeting. "This is not a huge step but is something else we can do."

Calguns hit national recognition. Cam Edwards spoke about Calguns tonight on NRA News.

In not so many words, he called the Oakland city council a bunch of numb nuts for having an ordinance that's looking for a problem.

So he regards CGF as the obvious agent to hit them about the head with those problems? :thumbsup:

So, do we get to have CGF gang symbols put up all over the state to indicate that it's our turf and we get to hurt the anti-gunners first? :43:

Just to make it clear, I am totally against this symbol mysteriously showing up all over anti-gun cities whenever they consider gun control legislation. Cuz that would be wrong. :D

Looks a lot like a railroad crossing sign. I don't think Oakland City Council yet realizes that is a train at the end of the tunnel.

Can we turn this into a surreal French film-like experience where anti-gun politicians find that mysterious symbol turning up everywhere, in more and more impossible places, until the maddening mystery becomes a thing of terror that haunts their every waking moment without explanation or respite? Maybe the entire film can be in black & white except for the red of the symbol. It would be for art, of course.

'Cuz I'd totally buy that movie. :D

That was the first thing that came to my mind as well. One house in deep-east tilts a little towards the room with the safe...

This train is picking up speed, and fast. Could it be, that Oakland may become the Concord of the modern 2A revolution? Could Oak's speech before the city council, and Gene's powerful letter be tantamount to Emerson's "Shot heard 'round the world"?

I am so proud to be part of this organization, at this time. Here's to victory, hearty fellows.
