California: Final Committee Hearings Prior to Summer Recess

California: Final Committee Hearings Prior to Summer Recess

Friday, July 12, is the deadline for bills to be passed out of their respective policy committees prior to the legislature breaking for summer recess. Click the take action buttons below to contact members of the committees for next week's committee hearings. 

Senate Appropriations Committee:

On Monday, July 8, the Senate Appropriations Committee will be considering AB 12, AB 61 and 879.  Click the take action button below to contact members of the Committee to urge their opposition. 

Assembly Bill 12, sponsored by Assembly Member Jacqui Irwin (D-44), would extend the duration of California’s “gun violence restraining order” law from one year to a period of up to five years. Meaning a person could be prohibited from owning and possessing firearms for five years at a time without ever being adjudicated mentally ill or convicted of a crime, but based on third party allegations.  

Assembly Bill 61, sponsored by Assembly Member Philip Ting (D-19), would expand the list of those eligible to file “gun violence restraining orders” 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 Second Amendment Rights, not based on criminal convictions or mental adjudications, but based on third party allegations often without due process until weeks after a person’s rights have been suspended.​  

Assembly Bill 879, 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 registry of these parts and 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 unfinished frames and receivers.    ​

Senate Public Safety:

On Tuesday, July 9, the Senate Public Safety Committee will be considering AB 1669. Click the take action button below to urge members of the Committee to oppose AB 1669. 

Assembly Bill 1669, sponsored by Assembly Member Rob Bonta (D-18), would raise the fees paid by consumers when purchasing firearms. The DROS account at times has generated a massive surplus at times, so much so that tens of millions of dollars have been utilized to fund other DOJ programs including a $24 million dollar loan to the Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS) just a few short years ago. This legislation appears nothing more than an effort to put more cost constraints on gun owners to foot the bill for the massive cost pressures the legislature has put on DOJ in the recent years including ammunition background checks and long gun registration to name a few.    

Senate Natural Resources:

On Tuesday, July 9, the Senate Natural Resources Committee will be considering AB 1254. Click the take action button below to contact members of the Committee and urge their opposition to AB 1254. 

Assembly Bill 1254, sponsored by Sydney Kamlager-Dove (D-54) would prohibit the ability to hunt, trap or otherwise take a bobcat except in specified circumstances including depredation permits.  

Earlier this week, the Senate Public Safety Committee passed AB 1297, which will now head to the Senate floor for a vote and the Assembly Health Committee passed SB 172 which will be considered in the Appropriations Committee at a later date. Click the take action button below to contact members of the Senate and urge their opposition to AB 1297. 

 

Assembly Bill 1297, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin McCarty (D-7), would remove the maximum fee a local authority can charge on the concealed carry permit application.  AB 1297 was sent to the Senate Floor and will be eligible for a vote. 

Senate Bill 172, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would expand California's existing storage laws.   SB 172 passed the Assembly Human Services and has been referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
