NRA Sues Sunnyvale Over Gun Law

Download audio (MP3)


The National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit against the city of Sunnyvale in response to a gun control law passed by voters there in November. The city now requires gun owners to quickly report firearm theft and lock up their guns at home. It also bans possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. The NRA says the measure violates the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Anthony Spitaleri, mayor of Sunnyvale
  • Chuck Michel, West Coast counsel for the NRA, senior partner at Michel and Associates and author of "California Gun Laws"
  • Julie Leftwich, legal director of the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence
  • Larry Barsetti, retired San Francisco police officer and one of several plaintiffs in a suit against San Francisco for a similar gun ordinance
