California City Requires All Guns Be Locked or Disabled in Home

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

The Dublin, California, City Council passed an ordinance last week requiring all guns inside homes to either be locked in a storage device or disabled with a trigger lock.

The Pleasanton Weekly reports that, while California already has gun storage requirements in homes where children are present, the Dublin ordinance will apply whether there are children in the home or not.

Designated as Chapter 5.89 to Title 5, the ordinance says, “No person shall keep a firearm within any residence unless the firearm is stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock.”

Dublin city council member Shawn Kumagai claims the ordinance “will state clearly to our community that we embrace a culture of gun safety.” He added, “Safe gun storage helps to prevent unintentional and intentional injury and death of minors, helps prevent gun suicide, and deters gun theft.”

Councilmember Melissa Hernandez also spoke in support of the ordinance, but neither she nor Kumagai explained how Dublin residents are supposed to use guns to defend their home if said guns are locked up or disabled when home intruders strike.

Bearing Arms’ Cam Edwards predicts that “law-abiding citizens who secure their guns in accordance with the law won’t be able to access those firearms in an emergency, thus making them and their families less safe.”

  1. Sounds to me that they are telegraphing their intent to illegally enter your homes
    And don’t want to get shot
    Opting out and having a loaded 12 gauge by your side every minuet of your day at home would be my tactical response

    Y’all might get in , ya just ain’t leaving
    We also don’t call 911, ever !

    Oh and Fck yer non enforceable ordinance , I stand by my Bill of Rights thank you very much

  2. The .45 on me and the 9mm near me say the others shall not be locked nor stored unloaded.
    If you want any/all of my firearms unloaded you will have to send a flunky to force my hand.
    You will know they are empty when their glowing red and smoking.

    Till then…..
    Who the fck are you?

    Maybe someone should spay and neuter your bloodline.

  3. Locked and Loaded is how they reside at my place , like it or not , thats not going to change because you make a “rule”
    my Bill of Rights is clear, and you know what else is clear , this act of Treason

  4. “Safe gun storage helps to prevent unintentional and intentional injury and death of minors, helps prevent gun suicide, and deters gun theft.”

    How does locking up your firearms do any of the above? Maybe “deters gun theft” when you are not home, the rest is all a huge, stinking pile of BS.
