LOS GATOS (KCBS) — The town council of Los Gatos approved new regulations on Wednesday for firearms retailers including severe limits on where they can operate.
The new rules allow for gun shops in the town—but only in specific areas. They must be at least 250 feet away from schools, youth-oriented businesses, day care centers, government buildings, churches, parks and trails.
The push for new regulations started last December after Templar Sports—a firearms dealer—opened just days after the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn. Many residents were not aware, and were surprised when the store opened.
