The 2020 grand jury report The Gun Next Door: Firearm Safety in Marin County focuses on public awareness of the lawful responsibly to properly secure firearms by owners in protection against misuse. The jury’s investigation found difficulty in discovering the current number of guns in the county, extrapolating that about 44,000 county households are likely to be armed. The concern for potential gun thief and crime, suicide or lethal mishap drives the recommendations for county agencies to more actively engage in public gun safety awareness campaigns, free gun lock giveaways, gun buy back programs and education of gun violence restraining orders.
