“The Los Angeles City Council tentatively approved a measure to require electronic tracking of ammunition sales, and considered a second gun control measure,” abc7.com reports, preparing to get out the bloody shirt wavers. “In an effort to keep tabs on who is buying bullets in the city of Los Angeles, the city council approved an ordinance that requires gun stores and dealers to automatically email the LAPD after each sale of ammunition.” LAPD Captain Charles Hearn reckons that’s OK because dealers already keep logs of ammo sales. This just makes it easier to…you know. Be proactive! So what’s the second measure? Bringing itself in line with all of Massachusetts . . .
The city is also considering another controversial gun law. This one would require gun owners to store their guns in a locked container or disable it with a trigger lock . . .
The Gun Owners of California organization denounced the proposed ordinance in a statement: “Each and every time that a law-abiding citizen loses his life or the life of a family member because they could not get to their guns in time to protect themselves in their own home, that loss of life or even injury should be laid squarely at the feet of the LA City Council members who passed it.”
Wow. Sounds to me that the GOC are assuming this a done deal. Is it?
