California: Legislature Breaks for Summer Recess

On July 6, the California Legislature started their summer recess and will reconvene on Monday, August 6.  Please find an update on the current status of firearm and hunting related bills below.

Assembly Bills

Assembly Bill 3, sponsored by Assembly Member Rob Bonta (D-18), would raise the age to purchase firearms and ammunition to 21 years old. AB 3 was heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on July 2 and placed on the suspense file for further consideration at a later date.

Assembly Bill 986, sponsored by Assembly Member James Gallagher (R-3), would reduce hunting license fees for veterans. AB 986 is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on August 6.

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 was heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on July 2 and placed on the suspense file for further consideration at a later date.

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 is eligible for a vote on the Senate floor.

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. AB 2382 is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on August 6.

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. AB 2888 was heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on July 2 and placed on the suspense file for further consideration at a later date.  

 

Senate Bills

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. SB 221 has been referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee where it awaits a hearing date.

Senate Bill 1100, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would raise the minimum age to purchase a long gun from 18 years old to 21 years old as well as limit long gun purchases to one every 30 days. SB 1100 has been referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee where it awaits a hearing date

Senate Bill 1177, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would prohibit a person from making more than one application to purchase and the dealer delivery of any type of firearm within any 30-day period. SB 1177 has been referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee where it awaits a hearing date

Senate Bill 1311, sponsored by Senator Tom Berryhill (R-8), would create an annual combined hunting and fishing license. SB 1311 would help generate participation and encourage the next generation of sportsman and women by providing a convenient and economical way to secure the necessary licensing for hunting and fishing activities in the Golden State. SB 1311 has been referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee where it awaits a hearing date

Senate Bill 1382, sponsored by Senator Andy Vidak (R-14),would authorize locking a firearm in a toolbox or utility box that is permanently affixed to the bed of a pickup truck or vehicle that does not contain a trunk. SB 1382 has passed both chambers and was enrolled to Governor Brown for his consideration.

Senate Bill 1346, sponsored by Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-19), would expand the current prohibition on multiburst triggers to include bump stocks. SB 1346 is eligible for a vote on the Assembly floor.

Senate Bill 1487, sponsored by Senator Henry Stern (D-27), would prohibit the possession of certain African species of wildlife.  The true goal of the bill is to ensure that a lawful U.S. hunter is not allowed to bring home a hunting trophy—even though the animal was legally taken and the hunter has the approval of the U.S. Federal Government. SB 1487 has been referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee where it awaits a hearing date
