California: Moraga Town Council to Consider Mandatory Locked-Storage Ordinance

Today, at 7:00 pm, the Moraga Town Council will be holding a public meeting to discuss a proposed mandatory locked storage ordinance.  If enacted, the proposed ordinance would require any person who keeps a handgun in their residence to store the handgun in a locked container or disabled with a DOJ approved gun lock unless carried on their person or in the person’s immediate control.  

As previously reported, 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. 

Consider attending the meeting to voice your opposition or if you are unable to attend, contact the council through email, phone or fax.
