SAN JOSE, Calif. - The Mayor of San Jose Sam Liccardo, is proposing a first of its kind ordinance, in an effort to curb gun violence.

In the wake of the deadly mass shooting in Gilroy, the mayor wants every gun owner in his city, except law enforcement officers, to be required to purchase liability insurance for their weapons.

Similar legislation has been proposed on a statewide level in New York, North Carolina, Hawaii, Washington, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.

The rules and open government committee will hear the ordinance on Aug. 21, 2019. It could take at least two weeks before it's presented to the city council.
