San Bruno City Council considers new gun rules
April 09, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report
New businesses in San Bruno hoping to sell guns could need to meet some extra requirements -- a change in the permitting process that goes before the City Council tonight.

In February, the San Bruno City Council discussed gun regulations proposed nationally, in California and in nearby cities. While there were numerous questions, the council generally supported state and national efforts and asked staff to come back with more information about a variety of ideas from creating a permit system for San Bruno retailers to establishing an anonymous tip line encouraging residents to report the illegal use or sale of guns. On Tuesday, the council will discuss a draft to establish a permit system for new firearm dealers.

The new rules would require new businesses that plan to sell firearms to: certify it meets state requirements for selling guns; be located at least 250 feet away from residential districts, schools, day-care centers or parks and 1,200 feet from other firearms dealers, card rooms, massage establishments and adult businesses; keep all firearms secure with additional measures like alarms, security cameras, reinforced doors and window and $1 million in liability insurance; work with police to set reasonable hours of operation; renew the permit annually; and a hearing should a permit be denied or revoked, according to the staff report.

Currently two businesses in San Bruno sell guns and a third has permits to do so.

The council meets 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9 at the Senior Center, 1555 Crystal Springs Road.
