    City council delays giving police new powers for G-20

    Good

    Before today’s action, council removed from the legislation a reference to a defunct assault weapons ban. The inclusion of references to “contraband weapon[s]” had upset gun rights advocates, who viewed it as a stealth attempt to ban high-powered weapons. But left in were bans on carrying pipes, handcuffs, chains, carabiners, padlocks, noxious or toxic substances, gas masks, projectile launchers, human or animal waste or blood, rotten eggs, acid, gasoline, gases or sprays, and alcohol if there is intent to use it to thwart crowd control.

    That's good to hear. You have to protect your face when an angry mob of police are coming after you with tear gas, pepper spray, and who knows what else.

    I seen videos of this every year and they pepper sprayed a whole crowd of calm protesters that where standing to the side of a hand full of violent ones.

    lol gas masks being illegal at a protest... so it's okay for them to gas you, but you aren't allowed to defend yourself. Pathetic.
