KQED Forum's program on Measure C and the NRA's lawsuit

The National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit against the city of Sunnyvale in response to a gun control law passed by voters there in November. The city now requires gun owners to quickly report firearm theft and lock up their guns at home. It also bans possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. The NRA says the measure violates the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

Listen to the full program here.


Measure C passed in November with support of 66% of Sunnyvale voters!

Sunnyvale Citizens for Sensible Gun Measures is an active organization of Sunnyvale residents supporting reasonable gun measures.

We’re lucky—there is relatively little gun violence in Sunnyvale.  In other parts of the Bay Area, guns destroy lives every day; across America, unspeakable mass shootings continue to happen.  And special interests which place their own economic gain and political power above our national safety and sanity have so far made sure that Congress does nothing.

"Every gun tragedy saddens us, but Newtown made me angry. We can no longer keep believing that nothing can or should be done. As an elected representative, I want to bring my energy to bear on our community’s safety. I’m proposing a package of sensible local gun safety measures, and together, we can bring these to pass."
