Mercury News A controversial gun control measure that would propel this politically moderate -- and comparatively low-crime -- South Bay city to the forefront of what had been a stalled national movement to restrict firearms, had an insurmountable lead late Tuesday. Measure C -- which requires gun owners to report a loss or theft of their weapon to police within 48 hours, to keep firearms locked up when not in the owner's direct possession and prohibits ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds -- received 66 percent support with all precincts counted, with 34 percent voting no.
