California: 2018 Legislative Session Adjourns and Now Governor Brown Needs to Hear from You!

California: 2018 Legislative Session Adjourns and Now Governor Brown Needs to Hear from You!

The California Legislature has adjourned from the 2018 legislative session and now Governor Brown needs to hear from you on anti-gun bills currently awaiting his consideration.  Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to contact Governor Brown and urge him to VETO SB 221, SB 1100, SB 1177, SB 1487, AB 2103, and AB 2888.

 

 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, effectively denying young adults the ability to exercise their constitutional rights.

 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.  

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.

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.  

 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.  

 

Despite a number of anti-gun bills awaiting the Governor’s consideration, this session did see some success. Governor Brown signed SB 1382 which authorizes the use of a toolbox or utility box for firearms in vehicles without trunks and has the opportunity to sign AB 2103 which would make big game youth hunting more affordable. Additionally a number of anti-gun bills were defeated!

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.  

Senate Bill 1382, sponsored by Senator Andy Vidak (R-14), authorizes 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 was signed by Governor Brown on July 9.

 

The following anti-gun bills were defeated this year: 

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 2382, sponsored by 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. 

Assembly Bill 2497, sponsored by Jim Cooper (D-9), would place an additional tax on firearms and ammunition. 

Assembly Bill 3199 – sponsored by Assembly Member Chris Holden (D-41) would have prohibited firearms as raffle prizes by charitable organizations.
