Despite opposition to the gun and ammunition control measures discussed at the Sunnyvale City Council meeting, the City Supervisors voted 5 to 2 and ordered the measures to be placed on the November Ballot. City Councilmembers Meyering and Whittum showed true common sense and voted against the measures that have been proven ineffective in reducing gun violence.
The GS2AC had a presence at the meeting.
The measures are as follows:
1. No person may keep a firearm within a residence owned or controlled by that person unless the firearm is stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock or other safety device, unless the firearm is in the person’s immediate possession and control.
2. Lost or stolen firearms must be reported to the DPS within 48 hours of the time that the owner knows or reasonably should know that a firearm is lost or stolen.
3. Dealers must procure a permit to sell ammunition and must keep a record of ammunition sales that includes name, date, identity of purchaser, and the type, amount, and brand of ammunition purchased.
4. No person may own or possess ammunition magazines that have the capacity to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
5. Firearms dealers must obtain a city-issued permit and cannot operate within 200 feet of a public school.
