On Tuesday, San Francisco District 5 Supervisor Dean Preston announced that he would be introducing legislation aimed at limiting the use of guns by security guards at businesses across the city. 

The self-proclaimed “democratic socialist” said the current laws give security personell too much freedom to resort to violence to protect property, and suggested the rules should be amended to prohibit them from using weapons when there is no physical danger present.
