Sunnyvale Measure C passed in November 2013 with 66% of the vote!
Following are the four sensible gun safety provisions in Measure C:

No person may keep a firearm within a residence owned or controlled by that person unless the firearm is stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock or other safety device, unless the firearm is in the person’s immediate possession and control.

  • Hundreds of lives are lost each year due to unintentional shootings.
  • Thousands of firearms are stolen out of households each year.
  • This is a common sense measure that will help ensure that guns do not fall into the wrong hands.



This common sense requirement:

  • Reduces gun trafficking.
  • Allows police to locate missing firearms.
  • Helps law enforcement disarm people who are prohibited from having a gun.

Lost or stolen firearms must be reported to the DPS within 48 hours of the time that the owner knows or reasonably should know that a firearm is lost or stolen.



Dealers must procure a permit to sell ammunition and must keep a record of ammunition sales that includes name, date, identity of purchaser, and the type, amount, and brand of ammunition purchased.

  • Federal law does not require ammunition sellers to have a license or keep records of sales.
  • This measure would ensure that more ammunition will be sold through responsible channels.
  • Ammunition sales logs give law enforcement an important tool to identify and prevent dangerous or prohibited persons from stockpiling ammunition.  



  • Large-capacity magazines allow a shooter to fire many rounds of ammunition without the need to reload. 
  • California already prohibits the sale of large capacity ammunition magazines (LCAMs) of more than 10 rounds.
  • This measure would close the existing loophole by prohibiting ownership and possession of LCAMs.
  • Banning LCAMs saves lives while leaving citizens many options for hunting and self-defense.

No person may own or possess ammunition magazines that have the capacity to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
