I also believe that theyre going to try to ban sales of foregrips, slide fire stocks, non fixed stocks, rail mounted lasers, pistol grips and anything else that makes the gun look scary, I believe they are going to go after accessories now too.
I also wonder if they ban magazines over 10 rounds couldn't Beta co. sue the federal government because the ban would put them out of business. Couldn't gun manufacturers sue the government for slander because they are demonizing the gun manufacturer's product by calling them "assault weapons".

The Democratic People's Republic of NY is going to try and ban ALL semi-auto's and mags that hold more than 7 rounds. If they do it I'm done with this state. It's a shame cause aside from the libtard infestation problem it's actually a nice place, but I will move. And refuse to pay my state taxes, I'm not going to fund a fascist government. I'd say the same for the feds, but at least some of that money goes to the military. :~{ MAD

San Francisco is talking about banning "military grade" ammunition "such as hollow point bullets". UMMM I hate to tell them but hollow-point or expanding ammunition has been banned for military use for how long now under the Geneva Conventions? I think I will hold my tongue. This is one of the many, many screw-ups that the liberal banners will be making over the next several months. Morons.

They are also talking about immediately notifying police when any individual purchases 500 rounds or more in ammunition. If this one passes I can anticipate going up to SF to buy a brick of ammo every week not because I need it but just to tax the resources of the SFPD.

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Two pieces of legislation announced Thursday by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee could make buying ammunition in the city more difficult.

Lee was joined by police Chief Greg Suhr and Supervisor Malia Cohen Thursday to announce the proposals, the first of which would make military-grade ammunition illegal to possess in San Francisco.

The second proposal would require businesses to automatically notify police when someone buys 500 rounds of ammunition or more in one transaction.

Lee said military-grade ammunition such as hollow-point bullets “has no reason to be in our homes and on our streets.”

Cohen, who said she expects to introduce the proposals at the board’s Jan. 15 meeting, said it “is too easy to obtain and possess military-grade ammunition” that is “designed to expand and shred internal organs” of shooting victims.

The proposals come in the wake of last week’s shooting spree that killed more than two-dozen people at an elementary school in Connecticut and “heightened everyone’s awareness” about the problems of gun violence, Lee said.

There have been 67 homicides in San Francisco this year compared to 50 at the same point in 2011, but gun violence in the city is down about 4 percent from last year, according to Suhr, who said he hoped the mayor’s proposals would further reduce the violence.

The chief acknowledged that, as currently proposed, the legislation would allow someone to make multiple purchases that total more than 500 rounds as long as one transaction did not reach that number.

“That’s a problem,” he said. “But there has to be a threshold and we’re setting it at 500.”

Lee earlier this week joined more than 750 mayors from across the country in sending a letter to President Barack Obama and Congress calling for comprehensive gun control reform.

Gun control is always local. The most severe gun laws are city, county, and state. We have states with little or no fire arms laws and states like Nazi Germany.
The laws of each state reflects the ideals of the people who live in those states. The Liberal states have lower NRA membership and choose local laws to suppress firearms ownership. These states and there representives in Washington try to force their laws on all Americans.

If I were to get shot I would rather be hit with a hollow point and die than be injured by a fmj, just saying...

There was a doctor from SF General saying how gunshot victims come into the ER there and sometimes he "can't save them" because of the type of bullet that was used. WTF?
