San Jose gun laws: New proposals criticized

The San Jose Mercury reports:
In a state already known for some of the nation’s strictest gun controls, some San Jose officials are pushing the city to go further with a proposed law that would toughen requirements for securing firearms, reporting their theft and monitoring ammunition sales.
There's more:
The proposed law, dubbed the “gun violence prevention ordinance,” appears to mirror some existing and proposed state requirements, but it would require all gun owners to store guns inside a locked container at home or disable them with a trigger lock, not just those with children in the house as mandated under current state law.
It would be too bad if the law passed and some San Jose citizens engaged in jury nullification if put on juries over the law.
