Town Of Moraga

Sale of Firearms Ordinance - January 2019

Council considered an Ordinance that would establish land use regulations to govern where firearms dealers could locate and require each dealer to obtain approval of a conditional use permit by the Planning Commission. Currently, there are no restrictions. The proposed changes also include a police permitting process that requires dealers undergo a thorough, transparent application process including a full background check. The police permit could be revoked for non-compliance. The Council ultimately agreed to adopt the police permit process and limit firearms sales to the Limited Commercial zoning district, and directed staff to revise the Ordinance to reflect this and bring the item back at a future meeting.
