This could happen anywhere. Even here. That is why we are so proud that the Pleasanton City Council just voted in a new Safe Storage Ordinance. The ordinance clarifies California state law in three ways:
It clarifies exactly what safe storage is: firearms must be stored in a locked container or by using a gun lock.
It applies to ALL residences.
* It applies to ALL residences, regardless of the presence or absence of children.
During 2020, gun sales surged by 64% and unintentional shootings by children increased by 31%. 2021 has already had the highest number of incidents in the past seven years.
Today a gun got into the wrong hands. Again. If you are a gun owner, lock up your firearms. Lives will be saved.
Today, we hold the victims and families in our hearts. Again.
