Mayor Frank Curran (left) and detective William Gore display guns to be dumped at sea, 1968. The mayor had instituted a voluntary gun turn-in program modeled after San Francisco's.
SDPD chief O.J. Roed, meanwhile, stated his opposition to the registration of guns because he didn't believe such laws could be enforced.
