LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles handgun owners will be required to store their firearms in locked containers or disable them with trigger locks under a law unanimously approved by the City Council.
The council voted 14-0 on Tuesday to pass the ordinance regulating the storage of handguns.
City News Service reports the measure would apply only to handguns and not to larger firearms such as rifles.
The measure was championed by Councilman Paul Krekorian and backed by activists who say it will help prevent children from harming themselves with guns.
