On October 14, the Culver City City Council passed a Gun Safe Storage Ordinance, which states, “Safe Storage, Shooting Requirements and Suicide Prevention: to require all firearms located in a residence to be kept in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock, and for all firearm retailers to post signage about suicide prevention.”
The ordinance includes information about the importance of educating parents and guardians about gun storage requirements and the enforcement of gun storage laws. The City Council ordinance follows statewide California Senate Bill SB 172 which Governor Gavin Newsom approved on October 12. SB 172 strengthens storage laws to include unloaded weapons and long guns. In support of both SB 172 and the Culver City ordinance, the CCUSD Board of Education decided, this week, to move forward with a gun safe storage resolution at its regularly scheduled November 12 Board meeting. LAUSD has already approved a similar resolution.
