Rejecting lengthy testimony by gun control opponents, the Stockton City Council unanimously voted to outlaw the possession or sale of semiautomatic weapons such as the AK-47 used by a gunman last month to kill five children at a city school playground. Gun advocates decried the ordinance--a misdemeanor carrying a $500 fine and a maximum of six months in jail--as the first step toward taking away all weapons.

In a showdown between the National Rifle Assn. and gun-control advocates, the Stockton City Council rejected a measure Monday night that would have allowed any "law-abiding" resident of this San Joaquin Valley city to carry a concealed weapon. After two long and emotional debates before overflow crowds at City Hall, the council refused to make Stockton the first city in California to fight crime by allowing thousands of its citizens to arm themselves outside their homes.

After more than five hours of emotional debate, the City Council voted to delay until Monday a decision on whether to allow residents of this San Joaquin Valley city to carry concealed weapons. Gun enthusiasts and the National Rifle Assn. are backing a measure that would relax rules for granting concealed-weapon permits and require the Stockton police chief to issue a permit to any "good citizen."

City Councilman Nick Rust, a card-carrying member of the National Rifle Assn., is pushing a new plan to fight crime: Give all law-abiding citizens the right to carry a hidden weapon whenever they leave their homes. At a time when many California communities are trying to get guns off the streets, Rust has proposed a city ordinance that would allow as many as 130,000 people--most of Stockton's adult population--to obtain a concealed weapon permit.
