Guns themselves were in the crosshairs Tuesday night in the East Bay. City leaders in Pinole voted 5-0 to restrict a common way some people buy firearms, banning home-based gun dealers.
The proposal to ban home-based gun dealers in residential neighborhoods was brought up after a Pinole resident applied for a permit to sell guns and ammunition out of this home. The city’s police chief said it would create more criminal targets.
The city planning commission recommended the ban because it was zoning issue. But gun proponents called it a violation of their second amendment right to bear arms.
