California: Saratoga City Council Considers Mandatory Storage and Lost/Stolen Reporting

California: Saratoga City Council Considers Mandatory Storage and Lost/Stolen Reporting

Today, June 20th, at 7:00 pm, the Saratoga City Council will hold a public meeting to discuss a proposed ordinance that would require the mandatory storage of firearms in the home and reporting within 48 hours of any lost or stolen firearms. 

In response to the proposed ordinance, attorneys for NRA and CRPA have filed a joint-opposition letter highlighting the superfluous nature of the proposal, as California law already provides for criminal storage of firearms where a child or prohibited person may gain access and carry the firearm into public. Additionally, state law also already provides a 5-day requirement for reporting lost or stolen firearms. The letter outlines the legal precedent for the City Council to take note of so that their city does walk directly into legal issues by passing this ill-conceived ordinance.

This ordinance is another attempt by the anti-gun activists to make it more difficult and burdensome on gun owners to exercise their rights. To that end, it is critical that all gun owners and Second Amendment supports make their voices heard during the meeting. Members should know that the City offers public comment ahead of the meeting by email or through the City website link below. Members are encouraged to submit comments in opposition of the ordinance.

The meeting (regular session) is scheduled to begin at 7:00PM in the Civic Theater, Council Chambers, 13777 Fruitvale Avenue, Saratoga, CA, 95070. We encourage all members to attend.

If you are unable to attend, you can submit written comments using the following information and our TAKE ACTION button below.
