    LA weighs rules to lock up handguns, police union wants exemptions

    Los Angeles city council members are debating controversial new gun law changes aimed at locking up handguns when they're not in use.
    Union thugs...of the cop variety.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    I thought Heller put that to rest.
    I suppose what the definition of "use" comes into play.

    My doors have locks does that count?

    This is exactly what McDonald said was a no-go, but given SCOTUS' new jurisprudence, I expect Heller and McDonald to be reversed fairly quickly. That may indeed be why SCOTUS refused to grant certiorari in Jackson v. San Francisco recently. SCOTUS isn't ready to reverse...just yet.

    I hope I am wrong, but fear I am not....

    Councilwoman Nury Martinez told the newspaper she thought guns should always be locked.

    “Whether you are a retired police officer or an on-duty police officer, I just think it’s the responsible thing to do – to lock your firearm at home,” she said.
    Out of the mouth of babes? Lots less shootings and law suits, that's for sure.
