Default Huntington Beach gun ban???

HB trying to ban guns

The City of Huntington Beach, California, recently issued title and summary for a proposed ballot initiative that seeks to ban the possession and sale of “semi-automatic and automatic guns and rifles in the City of Huntington Beach.” If enacted, individuals currently in possession of such firearms will have until April 1, 2019, to surrender their firearms to the Hunting Beach Police Department. Violations would be classified as a felony.
Proponents of the measure have until June 2 to obtain the required number of signatures. With approximately 115,000 registered voters in Huntington Beach, proponents need at least 11,500 valid signatures before they can move forward. Should proponents gather enough signatures, the City Council may then decide to either adopt the proposed ordinance or submit the proposed ordinance to the voters during the next election.
Setting aside its plainly unconstitutional nature, even state law preempts such a proposal. San Francisco learned that the hard way after enacting a similar initiative in 2005. That initiative, known as “Proposition H,” prohibited residents from possessing any handgun within the city. After passage, NRA attorneys immediately filed suit, challenging Proposition H as preempted by California state law. The Trial court agreed with NRA’s attorneys, a decision that was later upheld by the Court of Appeals. Proponents of the measure petitioned the California Supreme Court in a last-ditch effort to uphold the law, but that petition was ultimately rejected, thereby striking down the measure once and for all.

Even if the measure had somehow been given the go ahead by the Superior Court and then the California Supreme Court, it should immediately be overturned due to the precedent set by District of Columbia v. Heller.

Quote:
(3) The handgun ban and the trigger-lock requirement (as applied to self-defense) violate the Second Amendment. The District’s total ban on handgun possession in the home amounts to a prohibition on an entire class of “arms” that Americans overwhelmingly choose for the lawful purpose of self-defense. Under any of the standards of scrutiny the Court has applied to enumerated constitutional rights, this prohibition – in the place where the importance of the lawful defense of self, family, and property is most acute – would fail constitutional muster. Similarly, the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional. Because Heller conceded at oral argument that the D.C. licensing law is permissible if it is not enforced arbitrarily and capriciously, the Court assumes that a license will satisfy his prayer for relief and does not address the licensing requirement. Assuming he is not disqualified from exercising Second Amendment rights, the District must permit Heller to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home. Pp. 56–64.
Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think cities can enact felony laws. I'm pretty sure they must either be enumerated by federal law or laid out in the California Penal Code.

The whole emotional and reactionary attack on guns is ridiculous.
