If SCOTUS ruled in Heller that the District of Columbia's regulations act was an unconstitutional banning, and struck down the portion of the regulations act that requires all firearms including rifles and shotguns be kept "unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock." Why do we have to have a lengthy fight to overturn a similar ban in SF, shouldn't SCOTUS control and the law voided summarily by the Federal Court without a lengthy case?

San Francisco does not enforce that law. It only appears on the books.

So it's hard to overturn a law that isn't enforced? Part of that onerous law is no discharge exceptions including self defense.

I believe we are waiting for Jackson V San Francisco to be litigated. Something that makes the movement of glaciers seem like a fast moving sport.

Behind the Roster, LTC, and the a-w law (no particular order in mind, that's just how I remembered them), that one is a small fish - especially if they're not enforcing it.
