sunnyvale gun owners are required to report lost or stolen guns to police within 48 hours, lock up their firearms at home when they are not being used, get rid of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds and gun dealers have to keep logs of aammunition sales. why all the national attention? as we told you last week, the nra said it would susan any v l sunnyvale if measure "c" passed saying it infringes on the right to bear arms. a major backer, sunnyvale mayor, hopes it sets an example for cities country-wide. >> we have been hearing that the american citizens want something done about the gun violence in this country. this is the first step. switching gears to the election in san francisco where mayor ed lee and lieutenant governor, gavin newsom, did not get their way. they backed proposition "b" and
