San Jose’s new gun controls will hurt minorities, Latino Rifle Association founder P.B. Gomez warned.
The San Jose City Council responded to the May 26, Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) mass shooting by passing numerous gun controls, Breitbart News reported. The VTA attacker used handguns which were “legally” acquired and “registered” in compliance with California law.
The city council passed new rules against straw purchases and a requirement that licensed gun dealers video all gun sales, the San Jose Spotlight noted.
The city council’s gun control response also included a liability insurance requirement for gun owners and a fee which will be imposed on gun ownership, NBC Bay Area reported.
San Jose police made clear “they won’t be knocking on people’s doors and asking to see registration for firearms. Instead, if police come across a firearm in a search, they will ask to see insurance papers,” KQED pointed out.
