TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson City Council is looking to tighten gun regulations within the city limits. The ordinance would require gun owners to report their guns lost or stolen within 48 hours from when it happened.

Councilman Steve Kozachik is bringing the issue up saying being able to trace gun ownership is vital. The Major Cities Police Chief's Association is pushing for legislation across the nation.

Some cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Sacramento, CA, already have similar laws. If the ordinance is passed, there will be a 60-day grace period.
