Up in arms over San Jose gun rules, activists promise lawsuit

https://sanjosespotlight.com/up-in-arms-over-san-jose-gun-rules-activists-promise-lawsuits/

Gun rights groups, instructors and activists say they’re outraged over San Jose’s proposed gun control ordinances—and they’ve promised to take the city to court if the measures become law.

“The whole proposal is completely disingenuous. It fails to provide any proven solutions. It is blatantly unconstitutional,” said San Jose resident Dave Truslow, a National Rifle Association firearm instructor. “In the meantime, (Mayor Sam Liccardo) is hoping to bask in the sunlight.”

On Tuesday, the San Jose City Council unanimously passed measures that will require all gun owners in the city to carry insurance and pay an annual fee to cover taxpayer costs related to gun violence or risk having their weapons confiscated. The city attorney’s office will return to the council in the fall with an ordinance for final approval.

Gun activists argue that mandating insurance violates the constitutional right to bear arms. They believe insurance and public fees will undermine the ability of low-income individuals to own a gun.

5. I doubt it

I can see every court in between kicking this out. This will be like the pillow guy court cases - no valid substance.

3. How so? Do you anticipate that having what amounts to an annual tax on gun ownership will survive

a court challenge?

4. Too hard to enforce. Confiscation would be a national spectacle.
