The Dry Run

Los Angeles City Council member Paul Koretz is pushing a complete citywide ban on the possession of guns defined as “assault weapons” under California law, but says it could take a year before the measure is signed into law.

Koretz said although he has opposed legal possession of assault weapons for about 30 years, he decided to propose this motion now because of the frequency of recent mass shootings.

“It’s more obvious that we should not be selling them, but there is also no reason for anyone to possess them,” Koretz said. “So in Los Angeles I wanted to take this to the next step and prevail the legal system to ban the possession of them in LA.”

Local gun control activists appear to be on board with the ban, though the head of one anti-gun group would like to see a compensated confiscation plan added to the gun ban legislation in a misguided attempt to put the proposed law on firmer legal footing.
