I agree with RKG on this. If SF had decided to ban peanut butter and it went to court, the court would have ruled the same way. It wasn't about guns but it WAS about a city trying to subvert state law.
Although gun owners prevailed in this, the judgment was not about guns.
I doubt that it would have overturned such a ban for the simple reason that there's no state law preempting the field of food regulation. Thankfully, there is such a statute reserving all firearms regulation to the state.
