Posted on 03/07/2013 3:55:45 PM PST by Red in Blue PA
A 45 day moratorium on gun sales has been unanimously approved by the Los Gatos Town Council. The moratorium gives town officials time to come up with a permanent ordinance regulating gun sales. The controversy started when Templar Sports opened in December. Some people had protested they didn't receive enough public notice before the store was issued a business license. The moratorium doesn't affect Templar. Town staff expects to bring a proposed ordinance to the council in four to six months.

“Shall not be infringed” appears not to mean what any sane person thinks the words mean - we should ask Chief Justice Roberts if this is not an infringement, just a tax and thus constitutional.
The Los Gatos Town Council will tell you what’s Constitutional! They are the ultimate authority, aren’t they?
I know places where their entire inventory would be purchased in under 30 minutes.
That will surely keep guns out of the hands of street gangs.
The clique of anti-2nd amendment self important liberal ninnies in this town make me embarrassed to live here.
Hey, how do you know my address?
But Templar is the only gun shop in town.
So the moratorium is meaningless.
It’s not constitutional, but Los Gatos is a strange place anyway. A WW II GI house could sell for several million bucks in that town full of morons.
I think a town in Texas needs to pass a 45 day moratorium on abortion and lets see how the left howls!!
Where? What state? I’m guessing California.
When did town councils acquire the power over citizens to tell what they may and may not sell on their own property? Government is run amok and Americans not only put up with it, they are conditioned to desire it.
Mine is the same - Main Street, Libertyville USA.
Los Gatos is loco.
I’m in Campbell. I was thinking of taking my Dad up there for some Father-Daughter bonding at the new store. What a load of elitist pigs in Los Gatos...present company excepted, of course.
Los Gatos is one of the most affluent cities in the United States, home to many who made their bones in the nearby Silicon Valley, and a locus of maladaptive liberal philosophy.
I love living here but like so many other really nice places a high percentage of the residents suck hard.
I'm gonna head over there tomorrow and show support by picking up some M1A magazines.
forget the Mexican fence.
see my tag.
Not impressed. I need to get out of the people’s republic of NY. And you can be sure that California would be dead last on my list. NJ Would be higher up on my list. (Well not really)
Unfortunately, I know a husband and wife who fit to a T. Amazingly, they both are addicted to MSNBC.
So there you go. And, more amazingly, he grew up on Ft. Bragg. I think he has unresolved authority issues. She is a typical bigmouth psychotic lib. busybody with nothing better to do but support anything Obama supports.
It’s California no longer part of the United States
Secession can be in many forms and failure to adhere to the Constitution is one form!
Let the whole State secceed!
At least FEMA will not have to worry about the clean up when the State falls in to the sea!
I don’t know if it’s still the case, but there used to be a Ferrari dealership right next door to the high school in Los Gatos.
That should give you some idea of what kind of town it is.
Here in Austin, the council has stated their agreement with the Obama admin. on an assault weapons ban but, don’t have the balls to do anything locally because they’re afraid they might get shot. <);>) yeehaa!
If it’s Los Gatos, CA it is ultra lib.
If the LG city council (or any other gov’t) has the votes, they can pass anything they want. If the citizens don’t like it, they can protest or vote them out. If it is unconstitutional(fed or state), it can be challenged in the courts, which could take years.
But........ don’t hold your breath. The 2a is one of the least defended rights we have. SCOTUS ruled against DC in the Heller case. Pre-Heller, it was impossible to purchase a handgun. Post-Heller, it’s now only nearly impossible.
East side. You?
They are using their zoning authority to determine where specific businesses may locate within the city limits. Zoning law has held up in the Supreme Court for a very long time.
IOW, it's legal, even if it is a taking of property value without just compensation.
It's a nice shop, not even visible from the street.
After all, it is "only 2000 yards from an elementary school".
LOL, I know him. He lives right down the road from me. Taught both my girls to shoot.
Them and the game wardens.
Poster thinks the whole world knows where Los Gatos is.
Los Gatos is deep in Cheyenne Mountain, a little farther inside the ground than the StarGate
The Constitution might have something to say, but before that has SNL got wind of this? The comic potential is irresistible.
