California: Firearm-Related Bills Pass First Committee Hearings

Today, the Assembly Water Parks and Wildlife Committee heard and passed AB 2151 and the Assembly Public Safety Committee heard and passed both AB 1927 and AB 2103. The bills will next move to the Assembly Appropriations Committee. 

Assembly Bill 2151, sponsored by Assembly Member Adam Gray (D-21), would help make hunting more affordable for youths by reducing the cost of certain big game tags for youth hunters.  

Assembly Bill 1927, sponsored by Assembly Member Rob Bonta (D-18), woulddirect California’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to “develop and launch a secure Internet-based platform to allow a person who resides in California to voluntarily add his or her own name to the California Do Not Sell List.”  For more information on this issue, please read our article Waivers of Gun Rights: A New Shot at Gun Repression.   

Assembly Bill 2103, sponsored by Assembly Member Todd Gloria (D-78), would add certain requirements in addition to the already mandated training courses for a citizen to obtain a concealed carry license. Currently, concealed carry permit holders are already required to receive up to 16 hours training prior to receiving a permit and at least four hours of additional training every two years prior to renewal.
