California: Moraga Town Council Holding Public “Study Session” On Anti-Gun Ordinances

Tomorrow night, the Moraga Town Council will be holding a public meeting to discuss a number of proposed anti-gun ordinances for the town.  The proposal includes mandating the locked storage of firearms “at all times in any residence” and an ordinance regulating the location on where firearm dealers may operate. 

Mandating the locked storage of firearms fails to consider the particular needs and circumstances of law-abiding individuals who are unable to quickly access their firearms for the purpose of immediate self-defense.  And the enforcement of such a requirement is severely limited by the Fourth Amendment right from unwarranted searches and seizures.  But the problems aren’t limited to the mandatory locked storage proposal. 

Just last year, the City of Pleasant Hill agreed to pay $400,000 to settle a lawsuit challenging the city’s FFL zoning ordinance which prohibited FFLs from operating within 150 feet of a residence, 1,000 feet of a day care or school, or 500 feet of a public park.  Combined, these arbitrary restrictions effectively prohibited any FFL from opening a new gun store in Pleasant Hill.  NRA and CRPA warned Pleasant Hill of the potential liability prior to the enactment of the ordinance.

We hope the Moraga Town Council won’t make the same mistake. To that end, we encourage all of our members to attend tomorrow night’s meeting and voice their opposition, which is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. in Council Chambers and Community Meeting Room, located at: 

335 Rheem Blvd.,

Moraga, CA 94556 

If you are unable to attend, you may contact the Town Council directly to inform them of your opposition to the proposed ordinances.  You can call, fax, or email the members of the Moraga Town Council at:
