Janice Hahn’s Baby

LA County Board Supervisor Janice Hahn pushed for the new policy.

“We need to prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands and part of that effort is ensuring gun and ammunition dealers are acting responsibly,” said Hahn.

“These are commonsense regulations that will make sure gun dealers have basic security measures in place, maintain inventory, and keep records of who they sell guns and ammunition to,” she added.

The new ordinance will impact 18 gun dealers and two exclusive ammunition dealers in unincorporated LA County.

The Los Angeles County Treasurer and Tax Collector will enforce these rules.

Key provisions Include

  • Ammunition dealers must obtain a business license and meet requirements similar to gun dealers. Previously, exclusive ammunition dealers didn’t need a specific license.
  • Stores selling guns and ammunition can’t allow minors unless an adult accompanies them. Mixed-use stores must offer sight separation.
  • Dealers should maintain annual sales reports, keep purchaser fingerprints, update a weekly inventory, install security cameras, and display signs about gun access risks.
  • The Treasurer and Tax Collector will publicly post names of suspended and revoked licensees.
  • The annual license fee for initial applications and renewals will increase.

The ordinance awaits a second hearing on November 7th. If approved again, it will become effective 30 days afterward.

Prior Regulations

This regulation is the third in a series of four proposed by Supervisor Hahn. Previous ordinances banned .50 caliber firearms sales and prohibited firearms on county property.

Another in development will introduce a 1,000-foot buffer between gun shops and “child safety zones.”

Furthermore, LA County is advocating for greater awareness and utilization of gun violence restraining orders (GVROs) aka “red flag” laws.

GVROs are gun confiscation orders that target those accused — not convicted — of being a threat to public safety.

SAF Responds

“Politicians like Janice Hahn is the reason the Second Amendment is so important. She has done everything in her power to shred our Bill of Rights,” said Alan Gottlieb, the founder of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), in an email to GunsAmerica.

“Our founding fathers warned us about those in government who abuse their power and made sure that we had courts to protect our freedom,” he continued. “The Second Amendment Foundation will make sure that she will be a defendant in the court room!”
