The Los Angeles City Council approved a motion on Nov. 12 asking the city controller to audit all previous and ongoing gun violence prevention programs and policies to determine their efficacy and make recommendations related to the allocation of funding and resources.
The goal is to ensure the city of Los Angeles’ gun violence prevention efforts are as effective and extensive as possible, said Councilman Paul Koretz, 5th District, who authored the motion calling for the audit.
“Of course, every single life lost to gun violence is far too many. However, with the recent sharp uptick of gun-related homicides in our city, we now have a very serious gun problem even though we have passed a number of gun control measures over the years,” Koretz said. “The time has come to look at the programs [and] their impacts if we are going to successfully keep the most dangerous guns out of society and off of our streets, and keep guns out of the hands of the most dangerous people.”
