California: Orinda City Council Adds Mandatory Firearm Storage to TONIGHT’s Meeting Agenda

The Orinda City Council has announced that they will consider a mandatory lock storage ordinance for the City. NRA and CRPA reached out to the City Council to advise them of the legal pitfalls in implementing this type of ordinance and that these types of lock storage ordinances do little to protect the community, are completely unenforceable by law enforcement, and only render law-abiding citizen helpless should a criminal come knocking on their door. Even with these facts, the city is being pressured by anti-gun groups to take action regardless of whether that action is effective or not.

The City Council added the proposed ordinance to TONIGHT’s agenda, Tuesday, October 2nd at 7:00PM.

Address for the meeting: Orinda City Library Auditorium, 26 Orinda Way, Orinda, CA 94563

We need your help!

Gun control groups are working hard in this area of the state to institute more gun control and chip away at your rights. This is a concerted effort that we are seeing across the state. The last-minute notification of discussion items such as this is just another way to try to force an issue in the hopes that opposition to the Council’s actions will not show up at the meetings.  To that end, it is critical that all gun owners and Second Amendment supporters make their voices heard during the meeting.
