More than a dozen gun rights advocates spoke out Tuesday against two gun control ordinances proposed by a San Mateo County supervisor. The first ordinance would impose new regulations on firearms dealers in the unincorporated areas of the county, including a requirement that they be at least 1,500 feet from places such as schools, parks, community centers, liquor stores and youth centers. Dealers would also have to obtain a license from the sheriff's office every year, take measures to secure their stores, conduct background checks on employees and maintain ammunition sales laws. A second ordinance would require gun owners in unincorporated areas to report lost or stolen firearms within 48 hours of when the owner "knew or reasonably should have known" the gun was gone. A violation would be a misdemeanor.
