CALIFORNIA: Santa Clara Gun Ban Ordinance Defeated On Tuesday, September 21, 2010, the Santa Clara City Council was scheduled to adopt Ordinance No. 1863, which would prohibit the possession of firearms in city parks (with the only exception being for “peace officers,” no exception for unloaded open carry or for CCW holders). But the item was withdrawn from consideration by unanimous vote of the City Council when Santa Clara City Manager Jennifer Sparacino raised legal concerns brought up by a letter received from National Rifle Association (“NRA”) and California Rifle and Pistol Association (“CRPA”) attorneys.  The City Attorney needed more time to review the case law mentioned in the letter. Until then at least, the item is off the agenda. But the city might bring the ordinance back. (The Agenda Report and Opposition Letter are posted at  For more information please click here.)
