Los Angeles: Companies Must Disclose National Rifle Association (NRA) Ties for City Contracts

image_pdfimage_print
The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously, 14 to 0, to require companies to disclose National Rifle Association (NRA) ties in order to be eligible for city contracts.  In addition, the companies wishing to work with the city must also disclose any ties “their subsidiaries have with the NRA” as well.  The ordinance was sponsored by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who believes the NRA perpetuates mass shootings by standing in the way of more gun control, despite California’s already stringent gun control laws that have failed to prevent gun violence while stripping law-abiding citizens of their Constitutional right to bear arms.

On Tuesday the Los Angeles City Council voted to require companies to disclose National Rifle Association (NRA) ties in order to be eligible for city contracts.

The council’s vote was 14-0

The Los Angeles Times reports that the new ordinance means contractors that wish to work with the city must not only release their ties but any ties “their subsidiaries have with the NRA” as well.

The ordinance requiring companies to reveal NRA ties was sponsored by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who believes the NRA perpetuates mass shootings by standing in the way of more gun control. O’Farrell said, “[The NRA has] been a road block to gun safety reform at every level of government now for several decades.”

California has universal background checks, gun registration requirements, gun confiscation laws, a requirement that would-be gun buyers get a gun safety certificate from the state, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, an “assault weapons” ban, a ban on campus carry, a “good cause” stipulation on concealed carry permit issuance, a purchase limit of one long gun a month, and controls on ammunition, which limit Californians to buying their bullets from state-approved vendors. Yet California witnesses some of the most high profile shootings in our nation year after year after year.
