San Francisco Supervisor Looks To Add Long Guns To Storage Law

posted on May 18, 2016

San Francisco Supervisor Mark Farrell, after having already coordinated the closing of the city’s last gun shop, has now taken up more restrictive gun control. While current law only requires handguns be secured in homes, Farrell is proposing all guns—including rifles and shotguns—should be under lock and key.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently refused to hear an appeal by the National Rifle Association, which was looking to overturn the nearly decade old ordinance forcing citizens to store handguns or use trigger locks. The NRA argued that the right to self-defense is infringed by storage laws. Farrell, in turn, was seeking to add long guns to this legislation, and already had approval from the Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee. 

Last year, Farrell’s legislation requiring video recording of firearms sales and police notification of ammunition sales led to the closing of High Bridge Arms, the city’s last gun shop.
