The California legislature is back from its summer break and many dangerous anti-gun bills have been scheduled to be heard in their respective state Senate and Assembly Committee and on the Senate and Assembly floor next Monday, August 12 and Tuesday, August 13.

  

This legislation has passed in the state Senate and is now on the state Assembly floor and can be voted upon at any time.  Senate Bill 475 (Leno) allows the local government in San Francisco to BAN the Cow Palace at the Fairgrounds. Contact information for the state Assembly can be found here.

 

 This legislation has passed in the state Assembly and is now on the state Senate floor and can be voted upon at any time.  Assembly Bill 180 (Bonta) repeals state firearms preemption in Oakland by allowing the City to enact ordinances that are more restrictive than state laws relating to registration or licensing of firearms.  Contact information for the state Senate can be found here.

 

**************************************

 

 These two anti-gun bills will be heard in the state Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, August 12.  Contact information for the state Senate Appropriations Committee is provided below.

 

Assembly Bill 48 (Skinner) BANS the sale of magazine parts kits that can hold more than ten cartridges, and requires mandatory reporting (REGISTRATION) of law-abiding citizens who purchase more than 3,000 rounds of ammunition with a five-day period.

  
Assembly Bill 231 (Ting) expands the law for the storage of firearms.  This bill will do nothing to reduce California's violent crime problem and only turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals whether or not anything harmful actually happens, and regardless of whether there was any misconduct on the part of the gun owner.  Ultimately, AB 231 is a misguided proposal that places unprecedented liability on those who choose to exercise their fundamental right to keep and bear arms. 

 

**************************************

 

These six anti-gun bills will be heard in the state Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, August 13.  Contact information for the state Assembly Public Safety Committee is provided below.

 

Senate Bill 47 (Yee) bans the sale of popular “bullet buttoned” semi-automatic rifles with certain physical characteristics.  SB 47 would also require registration of currently owned bullet-buttoned rifles, and would amend the definition of “fixed magazine” for purposes of California’s “assault weapons” laws to mean a magazine that cannot be removed without “disassembly of the firearm action.”

 

Senate Bill 108 (Yee) requires mandatory locked storage of firearms in a locked house regardless of whether anyone is present.

 

Senate Bill 374 (Steinberg) would expand the definition of “Assault Weapons” to include ALL semi-auto rifles that accept a detachable magazine.  SB374 would ban on the sale and possession of ALL semi-Auto rifles and require registration to retain legal possession in the future.

 

Senate Bill 396 (Hancock) bans the possession of all standard capacity magazines over ten rounds and would require confiscation of these magazines that are currently lawfully possessed.

 

Senate Bill 567 (Jackson) redefines shotguns to include any firearm that may be filed through a rifled bore or a smooth bore, regardless of whether it is designed to be fired from the shoulder.  SB 567 also bans the sale of shotguns encompassed by the revised definitions that have a revolving cylinder, and requires registration of these currently owned shotguns.

 

Senate Bill 683 (Block) expands California’s handgun safety certificate requirement to apply to all firearms, and would prohibit anyone from purchasing or transferring any firearm without a firearm safety certificate.
