Election night special

Various local elections are occuring in Oregon and Washington has some big initiatives. For Washington info head on over to Orbusmax.com.

I'm hoping that Sherwood's 34-112 passes so we can stop getting water from Cuba, err, Portland.

But the real reason for this post is to take a minute to reflect on the importance of voting, the great system of representative democracy we have and the fact that liberals want to give it away.

My favorite line from Bill Bradbury's voting press release:

Anyone who registers in person at an elections office, or at a voter registration drive, will not be asked to provide the ID.

My favorite line is;

Sufficient identification includes a copy of a current and VALID photo identification, such as a driver's license....STOP THERE!

A valid driver's license---WOW, Billy Boy Bradbury must have been pimping for this guy>

A driver's license isn't worth very much these days.

San Francisco's handgun ban passed yesterday:

The gun ban prohibits the manufacture and sale of all firearms and ammunition in the city, and makes it illegal for residents to keep handguns in their homes or businesses.
Only two other major U.S. cities — Washington and Chicago — have implemented such sweeping handgun bans.

With all precincts reporting early Wednesday, 58 percent of voters backed the proposed gun ban while 42 percent opposed it.

But the fight has just begun. David Hardy at Of Arms and the Law notes that the NRA will file suit.

Neal Boortz writes that the measure requires San Francisco residents to turn in their guns on April 1:

require that every resident of San Francisco who owns a handgun to turn it in to the government by April 1st. April 1st, by the way, is more commonly known as "April Fool's Day." Even voters in San Francisco should be bright enough to figure out that law-abiding citizens will be the ones to turn over their guns, while the lawless, the criminal element, will not. The number of guns in the hands of law abiding citizens will go down. The number of guns in the hands of criminals will not.
It is particularly amazing that 58% of the San Francisco voters would support this foolish measure after New Orleans. San Francisco faces the prospect of a natural disaster far worse than Katrina. Do the people of San Francisco think that the criminal element will just stay home and behave after the earthquake hits? There will be no violence? No looting? After the experience of the victims of the lawless in New Orleans it is hard to believe that any logical group of Americans would voluntarily disarm. But ... I did say logical, didn't I?

Alphecca's Jeff Soyer looks at some of the fine folks celebrating the handgun ban.

Do you feel safer now, San Fran?
