California: Legislature Votes to Prohibit Firearms Sales to Adults Under 21

On Wednesday, August 29,Senate Bill 1100 passed its final hurdle in the Legislature and is now heading to Governor Browns desk for his consideration. SB 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, effectively denying young adults their ability to exercise their constitutional rights. Instead of focusing on the criminal misuse of firearms, the California Legislature continues to focus their attention on restricting the rights of law-abiding Californians.

Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to respectfully urge Governor Brown to VETO SB 1100.  

The following bills are still eligible for a vote in the Assembly and Senate.  Please use the TAKE ACTION button above to urge your state Assembly Member and Senator to OPPOSE the following bills. 

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 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 passed the Senate Public Safety Committee on August 29 and is eligible for a vote on the Senate floor.

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 passed the Senate Public Safety Committee on August 29 and is eligible for a vote on the Senate floor.

Bills that have passed the legislature and are awaiting Governor Browns consideration:

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. 

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.

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.
