Proposed Provisions for San Jose
1. Require gun owners to safely store firearms that are kept in home in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock except when carried by or under the immediate control of the owner.
- The San Jose City Council passed a less restrictive Safe Firearm Storage Ordinance on October 17th, 2017 that requires firearms to be safely stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock upon leaving your residence. This ordinance goes into effect on December 1, 2017.
- This provision has been addressed with the signing of SB869 by Governor Brown on September 26, 2016. However, San Jose City Council is still considering a recommendation that the city fund the lock boxes for their law enforcement officers.
- With the passage of Proposition 63, this regulation no longer needs to be addressed by San Jose City Council. Loss or theft of a firearm is now required throughout California jurisdictions to be reported within 5 days, unless a city/locality enacted a more restricted law prior to election day.
- With the passage of Proposition 63, the transmission of ammunition sales data to the Department of Justice is required by July 1, 2019.
- With the signing of SB1446 by Governor Brown on July 1, 2016, this regulation no longer needs to be addressed by San Jose City Council.
