California: Proposed Mandatory Storage Ordinance Still Waiting for a Hearing

California: Proposed Mandatory Storage Ordinance Still Waiting for a Hearing

Please call your Los Angeles City Councilman TODAY!

The Los Angeles City Council has still not heard Council File 14-1553.  This ineffective ordinance would require handguns located in a residence to be kept in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock unless carried on the person or under the control of a peace officer.   The Council added a vague and useless amendment in an attempt to appease gun owners by also exempting handguns “within close enough proximity and control that the owner can readily retrieve and use the handgun as if carried on the person.” 

Do not be fooled with this attempt!  The Council fails to define “within close enough proximity and control,” which could potentially ensnare unknowing gun owners.  And it exempts only the “owner” of the firearm, thereby prohibiting spouses, family members, or other responsible adults from possessing firearms in the home if they are not the actual owner of the firearm.

We are expecting the City Council to add this ordinance to its agenda at any time and any day for a final hearing.  For more information on opposing Council File 14-1553, please click here to read last week’s alert.  Please call AND e-mail the members of the City Council and urge them to OPPOSE Council File 14-1553. Contact information for the members of the City Council can be found HERE

 

At the end of the day, this ineffective ordinance has little to do with making children safer.   It comes down to the fact that all households are different and have different needs. This reckless ordinance encompasses every home, not only those with young children residing in them. This one-size-fits-all approach is a solution to a non-existent problem and is both over-reaching and not based on fact. 

The only people the Los Angeles City Council will be affecting by this misguided, anti-gun ordinance are the law-abiding gun owners whose Second Amendment rights and inherent right to self-defense are being infringed by them. 

Again, please call AND email the members of the City Council and urge them to OPPOSE this ineffective and useless ordinance. Contact information for the members of the City Council can be found HERE

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen.
