San Francisco Handgun Ban / Golden Gate Suicide Barrier


San Francisco Handgun Ban  An ordinance approved by voters would limit the possession of handguns in San Francisco.  It’s set to take effect January 1st, but some question whether it can make the city safer.  A lawsuit is in the works to overturn the measure.

Golden Gate Bridge Suicide Barrier   Plans are afoot to outfit the Golden Gate Bridge with an anti-suicide barrier.  It would deter suicides, but could also affect motorists’ view.   The Golden Gate Highway and Transportation District is raising $2 million to conduct an impact study.  It's a technical, aesthetic, and emotional issue.  We'll hear the pros and the cons.
