Will we have more guns?

San Francisco votes have been, on the whole, in favor of strict regulation of guns in the city. Several months ago when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects the rights of individuals to carry guns, many people were afraid all sorts of gun regulations would be struck down by the courts. According to an article in today’s N.Y. Times, that has not happened. State courts have ruled on many gun regulations since the Supreme Court decision and have not struck them down. Regulations concerning the possession of guns by drug dealers, or the possession of guns near schools have been upheld. It seems our streets will not be overrun by gun-toting enthusiasts any time soon. We can all breathe a sigh of relief.
