SAN JOSÉ, CA – Today, Mayor Sam Liccardo issued the following statement in response to New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, et al. v. Bruen, Superintendent of New York State Police, et al.:

"The Supreme Court's decision will create nightmares for urban police departments struggling to keep cities safe amid nearly ubiquitous gun possession.  If firearm possession cannot be regulated, then our focus must shift.   The imperative grows for sensible gun regulation that reduces the risk of gun harm, such as through San José's approach: requiring gun owners to obtain insurance, and reinvesting gun fees in mental health, domestic violence prevention, and other services—particularly for households where a gun is owned."
