Oakland has joined an alliance of other cities in tightening its gun laws after a unanimous vote by the city council. This gun law is similar to what is already on the books in Richmond, Berkeley and San Francisco. It dictates that those who buy bullets would have to provide thumbprints. "What this does is tightens up the records," said Councilmember Jean Quan. "It requires sales of ammunition to have the same kinds of records that we have in the sale of a gun." "It will require a fingerprint when you buy ammunition," said Quan. "It would also require a new store that would like to sell ammunition to store it in a safe place, and to certify and clear its staff for criminal records."
