San Jose Woman Sues For Access To Guns

posted on August 29, 2015

Lori Rodriguez of San Jose, Calif., has filed suit against the city and police department in an effort to expedite the return of 12 firearms that were confiscated from her home. Her husband is prohibited from owning guns for the next two years due to a psychiatric hold, and the city intends to hold onto the collection until he is cleared. But Rodriguez says that she wants them back—after all, the guns are hers, and the law does not prevent her as an individual from owning them. 

Don Kilmer, attorney for Ms. Rodriguez, says that his client will comply with state law by keeping her firearms locked in a gun safe, but City Attorney Rick Doyle insists that this will not prevent access from her husband. Lori Rodriguez disagrees: “Every situation is different, so every situation should be treated differently.”
