A big THANK YOU to all of those that joined OCGO in person or via Zoom at the Irvine City Council Meeting this Tuesday April 25th to speak in opposition to the proposed Safe Gun Storage Ordinance that was on the agenda! It was a very long meeting, with our item being late into the night at almost 11PM. We appreciate your dedication to have your voices heard, & it was vital in getting the item tabled! Special thanks to Mayor Pro Tem of Aliso Viejo Mike Munzing for coming to speak as well!
While it was not completely struck down, it was tabled for further discussion at a later date after further review, and Councilmember Carroll, did recall the vote at 12:30am to vote No on even proceeding with tabling the item for a later date. Thank you Councilmember Carroll for putting your opposition on record!
We will keep everyone informed on how this ordinance progresses and when it will be coming before the council again so that you can join us again at the meeting.
In the meantime, please continue to email the Irvine councilmembers your opposition to this ordinance. The more voices of opposition that are heard, the less likely they are to move forward with this ordinance. If you need help drafting an email or a template, please reach out to us via firstname.lastname@example.org
