Default Proposed Moratorium on Firearm Retailers in City of San Carlos

We need everyone's help to oppose the proposed moratorium on firearm dealers that the San Carlos City Council will be considering at its upcoming meeting this Monday. See the below alert for more information on how you can help.

NRA and CRPA Attorneys Submit Join-Opposition Letter to Proposed Moratorium on Firearm Dealers for City of San Carlos

As we reported earlier this month, the San Carlos City Council will soon be considering a proposed moratorium on firearm retailers. The proposed moratorium is a result of several anti-gun residents opposing a new Turner’s Outdoorsman store that had a planned to open at the end of the month. If enacted, the moratorium would prohibit Turner’s Outdoorsman and any other California licensed firearms dealer from opening a business in the City of San Carlos for a period of 45 days while the City considers implementing a more restrictive zoning ordinance.

In response, NRA and CRPA attorneys have submitted a comprehensive joint-opposition letter to the proposed moratorium. The letter highlights the numerous complex and comprehensive requirements for becoming a California licensed firearms dealer, as well as all of the security, record keeping, and transfer requirements that all dealers, including Turner’s Outdoorsman, must abide by when operating a firearm retail business here in California.

The letter also discusses how Turner’s Outdoorsman invested over $118,000 in development of the proposed San Carlos location only after it sought approval from the City’s planning manager, staff, and Chief of Police—all of whom gave their approval. Nevertheless, the City is now taking the position that the proposed Turner’s Outdoorsman will somehow be detrimental to the public peace, health, welfare, and safety of San Carlos residents—despite providing a safe and legal manner in which residents can sell or transfer their firearms.

The City Council is expected to hold a public meeting regarding the proposed moratorium on Monday, November 13, at 7:00 PM in Council Chambers, located at 600 Elm Street, San Carlos, CA 94070. We encourage all of our members who are able to attend to voice their opposition. Representatives from Turner’s Outdoorsman will also be in attendance.

In the meantime, we also encourage all of our members who are able to call, fax, or email the City Council to oppose the adoption of the moratorium. You can do so using the following information:

If enacted, can Turner's sue for damages and attorney's fees?

Got Zydrate?

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Well, I guess these same folks would also approve a moratorium on
Bookstores as well. Maybe even a Good Book Burning.

The combined Ignorance and Stupidity of people who support this Anti
2nd Amendment Nonsense
is truly astonishing, in an age when facts
are merely a few clicks away, they choose to remain ignorant.

And yet despite their Ignorance, they proceed boldly to demand actions
against a subject they literally no nothing about...

I sure hope so they can recoup losses. I hope that this does not go through, as I am looking forward to the store opening.
