California: Senate Passes Legislation to Raise Firearms Purchase Age, Expand Gun Rationing

On Tuesday, May 29, the California Senate passed Senate Bill 1100 and Senate Joint Resolution 24.  SB 1100 would raise the age to purchase long guns in the state of California from 18 to 21 in addition to extending the current one gun limitation on handguns to apply to all firearms.  SB 1100 will now move to the Assembly where it will be assigned to committee.   

Anti-gun bill AB 2382 remains eligible for a vote on the Assembly floor.  Please use the TAKE ACTION above and respectfully urge your Assembly Member to OPPOSE AB 2382.

Assembly Bill 2382, sponsored by Assembly Member Mike Gipson (D-64), would require precursor firearms parts to be sold/transferred through a licensed precursor parts dealer in a similar process to the new laws regarding ammunition purchases. It would further create a new crime for transfer of precursor parts without the involvement of a licensed precursor parts dealer to anyone under 21 years of age or prohibited from owning firearms. Precursor parts include items such as barrels, ammunition feedings devices and upper receivers.
