LA sheriff clashes with county lawyer over closing gun shops

2020-03-24 17:39:14

The Los Angeles County sheriff reversed his own decision Tuesday to order deputies to make sure gun shops were closed during the coronavirus crisis after the county’s top lawyer said the shops could be open. Los Angeles, the nation’s largest county with 10 million residents, enacted a stay-at-home order last week that required all nonessential businesses to close to slow the spread of the virus. Sheriff Alex Villanueva had said gun stores were not essential businesses and they had been selling to the public through a “loophole” allowing them to stay open, many attracting long lines of customers.
