Farrell’s proposed gun legislation is expected to be introduced at the Board of Supervisors meeting in September.
In the wake of a murder by an illegal alien with a gun stolen from a federal agent, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is pushing a strict new gun control initiative.
Supervisor Mark Farrell is asking the city attorney’s office to draft legislation requiring gun stores operating in the city to video all gun and ammo sales, mandate the videos be stored for at least five years, and transmit data on sales to the San Francisco Police Department at least one a week.
Saying the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is understaffed and unable to provide the level of oversight needed in the city, Farrell is seeking to increase restrictions on licensed gun dealers.
“Easy access to guns and ammunition continue to contribute to senseless violent crime here in San Francisco and across the country,” said Farrell in a statement. “Even though San Francisco has some of the toughest gun control laws on the books in the country – there is more we can do to protect the public – and we should do everything in our power to give local law enforcement the additional tools they need to prevent crime and keep our neighborhoods safe.”
