California: Pro-Gun Bills Granted Reconsideration After Failing to Pass Committee

On Tuesday, April 3, the Assembly Public Safety Committee failed to pass pro-gun bills AB 1931 and AB 2733.  However, both bills were granted reconsideration for a later date that has yet to be scheduled.

Assembly Bill 1931, sponsored by Assembly Member Vince Fong (R-34), would allow for concealed carry permits to be valid for a period up to five years. Currently, concealed carry permits are generally valid for a period of two years. This bill is a win-win for both permittees and the issuing authority. By having the option to extend the duration of permits, permittees could see a savings in both time and money by lessening the frequency of renewal as well as the issuing authority could see some relief from the heavy administrative load processing renewals can create. Regardless of the duration of a permit, the issuing authority constantly monitors active permits to determine if revocation or suspension is necessary.    

Assembly Bill 2733, sponsored by Assembly Member Matthew Harper (R-74), would remove the microstamping requirement for new pistols to be eligible for certification to the handgun roster. Microstamping technology has been required for all new pistols since the technology was certified in 2013. Since that time no new pistols have been added to the roster, effectively working as a ban, prohibiting Californian’s from access to the latest and most reliable technology.

On Wednesday April 4, the Assembly Appropriations Committee passed AB 2103 and sent AB 1927 to the committee suspense file. AB 2103 will be sent to the Assembly floor where it will be eligible for a vote. AB 1927 will be considered at a later date as well as AB 2151 which was not acted upon during yesterday’s hearing.

Assembly Bill 2151sponsored 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), would direct 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 2103sponsored 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.
