Yes, Berkeley has managed to come up with yet another mind-numbingly stupid idea. They have declared Berkeleyand the space for 60km above ita weapon-free zone. As Dave Barry would say, I'm not making this up. Here is the website with the resolution, which passed on 10 September (symbolism?). I am unable to adequately convey my feelings on this.
Dona Spring, the councilwoman who sponsored this, makes Maxine Waters look like Ronald Reagan. She makes the socialists in Sweden look reactionary. Look at every idiotic proposal to eminate from Berkeley in the last few years, and she is either the sponsor or a supporter of the measure. She is astonishingly stupid.
I wonder how Berkeley plans to enforce this law. Are they going to sue the DoD if a weapon flies overhead?
