California: San Francisco Looking to Further Restrict Home-Built Firearms

Today, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is considering File 210540, an ordinance further restricting the centuries old practice of home-building firearms for personal use. If you are interested in viewing or participating in the meeting, you may find the agenda with instructions here. In addition, you may click here to find contact information for your board member in order to ask them to OPPOSE File 210540.

File 210540, introduced by Supervisors Catherine Stefani and Rafael Mandelman, imposes requirements that far exceed those in California or federal law. It prohibits private individuals from possessing "materials" that have been "shaped or formed in any way for the purpose of becoming a frame or receiver of a firearm, rifle or shotgun and which may be readily made into a functional frame or receiver through milling, drilling or other means." Moreover, the legislation prohibits licensed dealers from transferring those pieces of "material" to private individuals unless they apply for and receive serial numbers from the DoJ and the serial numbers are affixed to the item prior to possession. California law already requires individuals to first apply for and receive serial numbers before assembling a home-built firearm and sets an allotted time for application. However, California law does not ban the possession of unserialized "materials" lacking the requisite milling to be considered a finished frame or receiver. 

San Francisco has not had a licensed firearm dealer since 2015, when the last gun store shut down due to draconian measures implemented by the city. This legislation looks to expand the city's attack on the Second Amendment and anyone who may seek to build their own firearm for personal use in accordance with state law. Despite all the urgent problems facing San Francisco, local politicians choose to distract residents by virtue signaling with further restrictions on Second Amendment rights. This legislation harms law-abiding individuals who are looking to acquire firearm parts in accordance with existing law - something anti-gun lawmakers are perfectly happy to do.
