San Francisco’s Last Gun Store May Be On Its Way Out

posted on September 4, 2015

Proposed legislation could spell the demise of High Bridge Arms, the last surviving gun store in San Francisco. Supervisor Mark Farrell will formally introduce an ordinance that would require all firearm sales to be recorded on video, with information handed over to San Francisco Police.

Owner Steve Alcairo says that he already has 17 surveillance cameras. He’s currently required to hand over any video the police request, and these further policies will have a significant impact on his business.

“What we don’t do is voluntarily give private information to the police department. Voluntarily, we just don’t do that. People are very private about their information,” said Alcairo.

Farrell says, “The goal here is not to run anybody out of business. But from my perspective, the public safety of San Francisco residents comes first.”

However, one area gun buyer thinks differently, saying, “Seems that they’re just trying to take the guns away from the people.”
