Safe Storage of Firearms in Unincorporated Areas of the CountyCalifornia law does not have a universal requirement that owners of firearms store them safely, a law that would decrease the chance of unauthorized access or theft. In an effort to address this gap, the Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance requiring a person in possession of a firearm in a residence in the unincorporated area of the County to either safely store the firearm—by placing the firearm in a locked container, or by disabling the firearm with a trigger lock—or to have the firearm in their close possession and control.
