California: City of Carson Defeats Unconstitutional Resolution Targeting Lawful Gun Owners

For the second time, the Carson City Council defeated Mayor Robles’ resolution (4 to 1) that would only effect law-abiding citizens.  The City Council also voted 4 to 1 to not bring this resolution back up for another vote.  Thank you to all the NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who called and attended the November 19 meeting. 

Resolution 19-186 would have:     

  • Impose “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; 
  • Provide for the elimination of existing gun dealers that would be deemed “nonconforming” by the new resolution. 
  • Prohibit 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 
  • Prohibit or restrict the sale of additional firearm accessories. ​
