County Supervisors discuss moratorium on new gun shops

Modified: Monday, Jan 14th, 2013

SANTA CRUZ The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors will be discussing a possible moratorium on the establishment of new businesses engaged in the sale of firearms and ammunition in the unincorporated areas of the county at its regularly scheduled meeting today.

While there are currently no such businesses in the unincorporated areas the moratorium would give the county time to study and potentially implement zoning regulations relating to commercial establishments that sell guns or ammunition before one has the opportunity to start trading.

District 1 Supervisor John Leopold introduced the proposal after learning a gun shop wanted to open in Live Oak.

Leopold said like any new business coming into the county, if it has a potential impact on the community, there should be appropriate regulations in place to ensure public safety.
