Supervisors agree to craft ordinance to prohibit ghost guns
The Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 Tuesday to craft an ordinance that would prohibit ghost guns — self-assembled firearms without serial numbers — from being made or distributed in San Diego County.
The board also agreed to explore local legislation that would require gun owners to store their weapons safely, keeping the firearms secured with a trigger lock or locked away in a safe place. Those ordinances should be ready for the board to review and vote on in about 90 days.
“When untraceable ghost guns get in the wrong hands, the effects are devastating, and we want to do what we can to prevent it,” Fletcher said in introducing the topic at the meeting.
