California: Carson City Council Fails to Pass Unconstitutional Resolution Targeting Lawful Firearm Possession and Sales

Yesterday, September 17, the Carson City Council failed to pass anti-gun Resolution 19-1693 ​The resolution was being pushed by Mayor Albert Robles in an effort to prohibit firearm dealers and firearm possession in the City of Carson to the point of a near outright ban.  

Thank you to all the Second Amendment supports who attended the hearing and called the City Council to oppose Resolution 19-1693. 

Resolution 19-1693​ would have: 

  • Imposed “reasonable” minimum separation distance requirements, “preferably of a radius of one mile,” between gun dealers and the following: schools, churches, day-care centers, recreation facilities, bars, liquor stores, and residential zones; 
  • Provided for the elimination of existing gun dealers that would be deemed “nonconforming” by the new resolution. 
  • Prohibited the sale and possession of firearms on all City-owned property and public right-of-way, including City Hall and other City-owned buildings and all City parks and recreation facilities, subject to exceptions for possession of firearms by law enforcement officers; and 
  • Prohibited or restricted the sale of additional firearm accessories.
