California’s third-largest city will take up a proposal to, among other things, require gun stores to audio and video record gun sales, require proof of liability insurance for all gun owners and implement a tax to cover costs associated with gun violence. "With council approval San Jose would become the first city in the United States to require every gun owner to have liability insurance coverage for their firearms, to incentivize safer behavior from gun owners and importantly, to compensate injured victims," Mayor Sam Liccardo told a crowd gathered Wednesday near the site of the city’s latest mass shooting at the Valley Transportation Authority railyard. "Second, San Jose would become the first U.S. city to require gun owners to pay a fee to compensate taxpayers for the public cost of responding to gun violence." Flanked by four members of the city council, Liccardo’s plan still faces several hurdles but is likely to pass sometime in September. It also bans so-called " ghost guns " that are assembled without a serial number, requires a fingerprint to buy ammunition and allows police to confiscate guns from owners who do not comply.
