California Legislature on Summer Recess

The California Legislature is now on summer recess.  They will be returning on Monday, August 17.  Below is the status of the pro- and anti-gun/hunting bills left alive for 2015.

Anti-Gun/Hunting Bills

Senate Bill 347 is currently in the Assembly Committee on Appropriations.  SB 347, introduced by anti-gun Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, would add to the list of misdemeanors convictions that would result in a 10-year prohibition on the possession of firearms.  The addition of these misdemeanor offenses to the prohibited category that include the “transfer” of firearms or ammunition could entrap family members that are giving firearms to relatives and are unaware of the requirements for firearms transfers through licensed dealers.

Senate Bill 707 is currently in the Assembly Committee on Appropriations.  SB 707, introduced by anti-gun Senator Lois Wolk, would prohibit CCW holders and retired law enforcement officers from possessing firearms on any properties that make up the grounds of a K-12 school or university, including many parking lots, common areas that may not be readily identifiable as school grounds, and student apartment buildings. 

Assembly Bill 96 is currently in the Senate Committee on Appropriations suspense file.  AB 96, introduced by anti-gun Assembly Member and Speaker Toni Atkins, would prohibit a person from purchasing, selling, offering for sale, possessing with intent to sell, or importing with intent to sell ivory or rhinoceros horn, except as specified, and would make this prohibition enforceable by the Department of Fish and Wildlife.  Lawfully obtained ivory components are commonly found on many antique firearms.

Assembly Bill 1134is currently in the Senate Committee on Public Safety.  AB 1134, introduced by anti-gun Assembly Member Mark Stone, would allow sheriffs to make agreements with and delegate the processing of all carry license (“CCW”) applications to a police chief of a city within the county.

Pro-Gun/Hunting Bills

Assembly Bill 499 is currently in the Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Water.  AB 499, introduced by Assembly Member Ken Cooley, would authorize a person with a valid license to carry a firearm capable of being concealed on the person, consistent with the terms of that license, while engaged in the taking of deer with bow and arrow. 

Assembly Bill 950 passed both the Senate and Assembly and is now waiting Governor Brown’s consideration.  AB 950, introduced by Assembly Member Melissa Melendez, would allow a person who is subject to a ‘gun violence restraining order’ to transfer his or her firearms to a licensed firearms dealer.
