Proposed ordinance would require L.A. residents to lock up handguns

A newly proposed Los Angeles city ordinance would require residents to secure handguns when they aren’t being used, either by storing them in a locked container or disabling them with a trigger lock.

City Councilman Paul Krekorian, who proposed the measure, said that California law requires trigger locks to be sold with firearms, yet “there is no requirement that [they] actually be used.”

The idea received immediate support from several other City Council members, including Bob Blumenfield, Bernard C. Parks, Gil Cedillo, Paul Koretz and Mitch O’Farrell.

“It is unconscionable to have a weapon in your home and not have it be stored properly, especially if you have children,” Blumenfield said at a Friday news conference alongside Krekorian.
