SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — San Jose officials have passed a new gun law that requires retailers to video-record all firearm purchases.

That makes it the largest city in California with such a rule. The City Council unanimously approved the new law on Tuesday and less than a month after a disgruntled employee fatally shot nine of his co-workers and then himself at a San Jose rail yard.

The Mercury News reports that the new ordinance is aimed at deterring an illegal practice known as straw purchasing.

That happens when someone buys a gun for another person such as a felon or minor who is prohibited from owning firearms.
