California: Public Safety Committees Scheduled to Hear Age Restriction Bills and Another Gut and Amend

Members of the Senate & Assembly Public Safety Committee Must Hear from You! 

On Tuesday, June 19, both the Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees are scheduled to hear legislative proposals, AB 3 and SB 1100, to raise the purchasing age for long guns from 18 to 21 years old. SB 1100 also contained language to extend the one handgun a month restriction to all guns, but was amended out earlier this week and “gutted and amended” into SB 1177. SB 1177 which until June 14 dealt with the Education Code, now restricts the number of firearms an individual can purchase in a 30 day period. SB 1177 passed through the Senate under the original subject matter and is currently assigned where it is anticipated to be re-referred to the Assembly Public Safety Committee in the near future.   Below find a list of all firearm related legislation to be considered this week. Use the Take Action Button below to contact members of the respective committees and urge them to oppose the following bills.

Tuesday June 19:

Senate Public Safety:

Assembly Bill 3,sponsored by Assembly Member Rob Bonta (D-18), would raise the age to purchase firearms and ammunition to 21 years old 

Assembly Bill 2888, sponsored by Assembly Member Phillip Ting (D-19), would expand the list of those eligible to file gun violence restraining orders (GVRO) beyond the currently authorized reporters which include immediate family and law enforcement.  The new list is expanded to employers, coworkers and employees of a secondary or postsecondary school that the person has attended in the last 6 months. GVRO’s can remove a person’s right without due process and not because of a criminal conviction or mental adjudication, but based on third party allegations.  

 

Assembly Public Safety Committee:

Senate Bill 1100, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would raise the age to purchase firearms to 21 years old. 

Senate Bill 221, sponsored by Senator Scott Wiener (D-11), would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Cow Palace located in District 1-A on and after January 1, 2020.  

 

Wednesday June 20th:

Assembly Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security Committee:

SJR 24, sponsored by Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-19), would urge the Congress of the United States to reauthorize and strengthen the federal “assault weapons” ban and would urge Congress to pass, and the President to sign, the federal “Assault Weapons Ban of 2018.” It would additionally call on the California Public Employee’ Retirement System (CalPERS) to engage with companies that produce or sell firearms and determine a method for those companies to withdraw from the sale or production of firearms, or produce a plan for CalPERS to divest its holdings from those companies. 

 

On Tuesday, June 12, the Senate Natural Resources Committee passed pro-hunting bills AB 986 and AB 2151, the Senate Public Safety Committee passed AB 2103 and the Assembly Public Safety Committee passed SB 1382.

Assembly Bill 986, sponsored by Assembly Member James Gallagher (R-3), would reduce hunting license fees for veterans.  AB 986 has been referred to the Senate Veterans Affairs 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.   AB 2151 has been referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee.

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.  AB 2103 has been referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Senate Bill 1382, sponsored by Senator Andy Vidak (R-14), would expand the vehicle storage options for gun owners by authorizing the use of a locking toolbox or utility box in pickup trucks or other vehicles that do not contain a trunk. SB 1382 has been ordered to the consent calendar.
