A note from John Leoppold:

in the unincorporated portion of Santa Cruz County there are no permitted retail gun operations. Recently I learned that a gun store is looking to open in Live Oak. When I asked County staff what regulations are in place for this type of business that would assure safety for our community I found that the County does not have any specific zoning regulations for gun shops. As a result, this coming Tuesday I will be asking the Board of Supervisors to adopt a temporary moratorium on the establishment of any new retail operations for the sale of firearms and ammunition to allow time for the County to study and recommend reasonable regulations associated with this type of business. With national attention focused on the issue of gun violence and regulations, it is timely that our county also thoughtfully establish sound policies. I am attaching my request to the Board. The item will be heard at 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday, January 15, in the Board Chambers, 701 Ocean Street, 5th Floor. I invite you to please come and tell Board members how you feel about the need for effective firearm regulations and the establishment of this moratorium. If you know people who cannot attend in person, please have them visit the Board’s webpage (http://sccounty01.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/bds/Govstream/ASP/Display/SCCB_AgendaDisplayWeb.asp?MeetingDate=1/15/2013) and look at item 43 and then click on the envelope to share their thoughts with the entire Board of Supervisors.
