The city council passed incipient rules against straw purchases and a requisite that licensed gun dealers video all gun sales, the San Jose Spotlight noted. The city council’s gun control replication additionally included a liability indemnification requisite for gun owners and a fee which will be imposed on gun ownership, NBC Bay Area reported.
San Jose police made clear “they won’t be knocking on people’s doors and asking to optically discern registration for firearms. Instead, if police come across a firearm in a search, they will ask to visually perceive indemnification papers,” KQED pointed out.

Most fascinatingly, rising rates of gun ownership for demographics who didn’t traditionally embrace gun ownership: Black people, Latino people,” Gomez verbally expressed.
