All handguns in Los Angeles will have to be locked up or disabled with a trigger lock when not in use under a new ordinance unanimously approved by the city council this week. A similar proposal already is law in San Francisco, and other cities across American are considering such laws.

Even retired L.A. police officers would have to secure their guns or face six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, Guns.com reported.

“Los Angeles will become the largest city in ‪California to require all handgun owners in the city to store their handguns in a locked container or disable them with a trigger lock when kept in their home,” the ordinance’s author, city councilman Paul Krekorian, said in a press release.

The city council’s approval of the measure is part of a new nationwide push for stricter gun control on the local level, The Los Angeles Times reported. Krekorian hopes the ordinance will inspire cities across the country to adopt similar laws.
Such local action is “is the biggest change in the gun control movement in a generation,” UCLA Law School professor Adam Winkler, an expert on gun laws, told The Los Angeles Times.
