That popping sound you hear is not gunfire it’s conservative heads exploding.

The L.A. City Council passed an ordinance Tuesday requiring companies that have contracts with the city to disclose whether they have ties to the National Rifle Assn., already prompting threats of a lawsuit.
The vote was 14 to 0. Councilman Jose Huizar was absent.
Prospective contractors now must disclose under affidavit any contracts or sponsorships they or their subsidiaries have with the NRA. The city has similar policies about companies involved in the construction of President Trump’s proposed border wall and over the historic investment in or profits from slavery.
The ordinance on the NRA was sought by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who cited several recent mass shootings in the U.S. At Tuesday’s meeting, he said the NRA has “been a roadblock to gun safety reform at every level of government now for several decades.”
Several gun safety groups who support the NRA ordinance gathered with O’Farrell outside City Hall before the vote.
“Let’s take a look at who we’re doing businesses with who is doing business with the NRA,” said Margot Bennett, executive director of Women Against Gun Violence.
Well as somebody who is anti-mass shootings I applaud this effort.
Of course, the NRA claims that they are going to take the city of Los Angles to court over this, but they cannot even afford to provide coffee for their employees so I would not sweat it.
