San Francisco Proposes More Gun-Control Legislation

posted on November 21, 2015

There’s no longer a single place to buy guns in San Francisco—the last gun shop shut down due to onerous gun-control regulations—and still the city is coming after your guns. The latest proposal would ban the storage of firearms in any unattended vehicle in the city unless they are secured in lockboxes or in the trunk.

Supervisor David Campos’ proposal comes about in the wake of a rash of firearms stolen from parked cars. The legislation has been approved in committee and will go before the full board. If passed, it would be the first such law in California. But if Campos has his way, it wouldn’t be the last.

“Hopefully once we pass this piece of legislation in San Francisco, the rest of the state can follow suit,” Campos said. “We have to make it inconvenient for people to carry weapons,” added San Francisco Supervisor London Breed.
