City contractors who have ties to the National Rifle Association must now disclose them, under a motion passed unanimously Wednesday by the Los Angeles City Council.
The motion, approved by a 10-0 vote, does not ban NRA-linked contractors from doing business with the city, but would require them to disclose any contracts or sponsorships they have with the gun rights advocacy group, CBS News Los Angeles reports.
“For the sake of transparency, the city’s residents and stakeholders deserve to know how the city’s public funds are being spent, and whether taxpayer funds are being spent on contractors that have contractual or sponsorship ties with the NRA”
The disclosure will likely be used to avoid conducting business with such contractors.

Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell created and presented the motion. He blames the NRA for impeding gun safety legislation in the U.S.
“With the increase in mass shootings in this country, it’s really time to call them out for what they are responsible for.” ~ O’Farrell
In 2015, the council also passed a ban on — and subsequent confiscation of — high-capacity magazines containing more than 10 rounds.
The NRA has not yet responded to this latest attack on the 2nd Amendment and the rights of the people of California.
