California Bill Would Require All Gun Sales To Be Videotaped

posted on February 22, 2016

According to Fox40 TV in Sacramento, Calif., a new measure under consideration by the state legislature would require that all gun sales in California be videotaped. It would also ban federally licensed gun dealers from selling firearms out of their homes, and require all dealers to carry liability insurance.

Democratic Assemblyman Kevin McCarthy of Sacramento, who authored the measure, justifies AB2459 with the same language used to further other “feel-good,” but ultimately ineffectual, schemes as “universal background checks” and gun “buybacks”: It will “help keep guns out of the wrong hands.”

Or perhaps the real intent of AB2459, as Fox40 reports, is evident in that it is modeled after a San Francisco municipal ordinance that “prompted that city’s last gun store to close.”
