A Northern California city has moved forward with a controversial plan that vows to make it harder to buy and own firearms. This week, the San Jose City Council voted unanimously on the 10-point gun control proposal.

The plan requires gun owners to purchase liability insurance for their firearms. It also outlines new purchasing fees that will be given to the city to use for crime prevention.

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo (D) said the proposal is the first of its kind. “We won’t magically end gun violence, but we will stop paying for it,” said Liccardo.

Meanwhile, Second Amendment advocates have pledged to challenge every aspect of the plan in court.
