As a member of the Board of Supervisors, the progressive stalwart consistently favored gun control. He once drew court opposition from the National Rifle Association over a move to strengthen The Citys rules for handguns in homes.
Yet when it was time to surrender his guns, Mirkarimi didnt immediately hand them over, police said. When they told Mirkarimi they knew of three firearms registered to him, he said he only had two, which were buried deep inside the house.
Mirkarimi stated that he only had two weapons, and I advised him that a Smith & Wesson revolver, a Sig Saucer, and a Beretta were registered to him, Inspector Richard Daniele said in a written declaration. Mirkarimi stated that he sold the Smith & Wesson revolver to a fellow recruit at the Police Academy in 1996.
But when police followed up, all three guns were in the custody of the Sheriffs Department and not with police, as dictated by criminal investigation standards.
