California: Bills Moving Fast in the Final Days of the Legislative Session

The California Legislature is pushing bills through the Senate and Assembly floor in the final days of session.  Below is an update of the action taken on bills this week and the list of anti-gun bills that are still eligible for votes, which may be considered at any time. Please use our TAKE ACTION Button below to contact your state legislator.

 

 

Bills eligible for a vote in the Assembly:

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. 

 

Bills eligible for a vote in the Senate: 

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. SB 1100 was passed by the Assembly on August 28 and is eligible for a concurrence vote in the Senate. 

 

On Wednesday August 29 the Senate Public Safety Committee will meet to hear SB 221 and SB 1177. The reason for this is both SB 221 and SB 1177 are “gut and amend” bills that passed the chamber of origin under a completely different subject matter. 

Senate Bill 221sponsored 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 was passed by the Assembly on August 27.  If passed by the Senate Public Safety Committee it will be eligible for a vote on the Senate floor. 

Senate Bill 1177sponsored 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 was passed by the Assembly on August 27.  If passed by the Senate Public Safety Committee it will be eligible for a vote on the Senate floor.

 

The Assembly concurred in the Senate amendments for both AB 2103 and AB 2151. The bills will be presented to the Governor in the coming days for his consideration.

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 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.  

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.
