San Jose Mayor Announces Plan To Crack Down On Gun Violence

Today is the two-week anniversary of the largest mass shooting in Bay Area history, when a disgruntled Valley Transit Authority employee killed nine coworkers at the rail yard in San Jose, before killing himself.

In the wake of the tragedy, Mayor Sam Liccardo is proposing stricter gun measures.

He also wants to make firearm retailers video record all of their sales. Under the mayor's ten-point plan, gun owners in San Jose would have to buy insurance for their weapons, like they would a car, and pay a fee to cover taxpayer costs related to gun violence. Liccardo will present his plan to the city council tomorrow, and a vote could be taken at a later date. He wants the city to adopt the ordinance by September.
