L.A. city council approves gun control measures

Earlier this week I posted a blog about the effectiveness of gun control and it seems that gun control is also on the minds of Los Angeles City Council.

Yesterday, the L.A. Times reported that the Public Safety Committee of the Los Angeles City Council approved a package of gun control measures that would make it easier for landlords to evict tenants with illegal firearms and place new permitting requirements on ammunition vendors. The committee approved an ordinance banning the sale of .50-caliber ammunition and, under one of the proposed ordinances, employees handling ammunition would now be subject to a background check.

The measures were introduced as part of the Mayor’s anti-gang initiative.
