Capitola Police Chief Wants Gun Shows Banned

CAPITOLA (CBS/AP) — The police chief of a Northern California beach town wants the city to ban gun shows and tighten zoning rules for weapons dealers.

The Capitola City Council considers police Chief Rudy Escalante’s recommendations on Thursday night.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reported Escalante also wants a gun buyback program.

Capitola could join with the Santa Cruz County Chiefs Association and partner with faith communities and nonprofits on a volunteer gun turn-in or buyback.
