Dear Council Members,

I am a Menlo Park resident and a volunteer with the local group of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

Vice Mayor Drew Combs intends to propose a safe storage ordinance at the January 14, 2020, Council meeting. This ordinance would be modeled on the one passed last year by the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors and effective in unincorporated areas of our county. The County ordinance was motivated by the need to close the gaps in state law which provides an unclear definition of "secure storage" and does nothing to prevent access to guns by thieves, suicidal persons, those suffering temporary mental crises or those with dementia.

Such laws have already been adopted locally by Burlingame, San Carlos, Foster City, Portola Valley and Redwood City.

I believe that Menlo Park should also adopt such a law in order to keep its citizens safe from the dangers of unsecured firearms.

I have attached several fact sheets from our organization as well as from San Diegans For Gun Violence Prevention.

Thank you so much for considering this law. Moms Demand Action looks forward to celebrating Menlo Park's passage of a safe storage ordinance.
