Currently, there is not a single licensed gun shop in the city of San Francisco. That could change if a well-known business in the Mission District is able to re-open, but some people in the neighborhood are taking dead aim to make sure that doesn’t happen.

The remodeling is underway at High Bridge Arms Inc. in the Mission District. If it’s finished, it would become the only gun shop in the city of San Francisco. The other part of the job will be dealing with opponents who have just started a campaign to deny a zoning permit.

“They’re there, they’re out there, and that’s fine, it’s their right to be that way, and that’s OK. But they also have to understand it is also my right to commerce and our right to have and own and operate this business legally,” says gun shop manager Steven Alcairo.

    Given the anti-gun history (starting in the 1960s) and extreme anti-gun position of the San Francisco City Government (e.g., (1) handgun ban overturned a few years ago; (2) movie ads can’t so firearms), today, it is amazaing they are even trying to reopen the store. SF is one of the most “anti-” environments in the US, and its politicians are very influencial in the anti-gun movement both in the US and influencing groups at the UN. Kind of a “ground zero” story…
