California: Legislature Set to Return as Newsom Signs Additional Anti-Gun Bills Into Law

The assault on law-abiding gun owners in the Golden State continued this week as the legislature finishes out their summer recess. Governor Newsom signed five more anti-gun bills into law, on top of the three bills already signed earlier in the month. When the legislature returns next week, three anti-gun bills will be considered in the respective Appropriations Committees. Please contact the committees and urge their opposition. 

Bills Signed This Week by Governor Newsom:

Senate Bill 1327, introduced by Senator Robert Hertzberg (D-18), creates a private right of action that allows individuals to file civil suits against anyone who manufactures, distributes, transports, sells, or imports firearms banned in California, as well as precursor firearm parts. Under the disguise of public safety, the language contained in this bill and the rhetoric surrounding it threaten the American free enterprise system. The bill is aimed at using the gun issue as a political pawn, making clear that the legislation would become inoperative should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Texas's recently passed abortion law or if the Texas Legislature repeals that law.

Senate Bill 915, introduced by Senator Dave Min (D-37), bans state officers or employees, operators, lessees, or licensees from entering into any agreement to allow for the sale of any firearm, firearm precursor parts, or ammunition on property that is owned, leased, occupied, or operated by the state.  

Assembly Bill 311, introduced by Assembly Member Christopher Ward (D-78), prohibits the display or sale of any "precursor firearm parts" at gun shows on the Del Mar Fairgrounds of the 22nd District Agricultural Association. 

Assembly Bill 1769, introduced by Assembly Member Steve Bennett (D-37), prohibits officers, employees, operators, lessees, or licensees of the 31st District Agricultural Association from entering into any agreement to allow for the sale of any firearm, firearm parts, or ammunition on property or buildings that comprise the Ventura County Fair and Event Center or properties in Ventura County and the City of Ventura that are owned, leased, operated, or occupied by the District. 

Assembly Bill 2156, introduced by Assembly Member Buffy Wicks (D-15), reduces the number of firearms a private citizen can manufacture in a year from 50 to no more than three. In addition, it prohibits private citizens from using 3D printing to make firearms, precursor parts, or magazines. 

Senate Appropriations Committee Monday, August 1st

Please contact the Senate Appropriations Committee members here and ask them to OPPOSE Assembly Bill 1227.

Assembly Bill 1227, introduced by Assembly Member Marc Levine (D-10), places an excise tax of 10% on the sales price of a handgun, and places an 11% excise tax on the sales price of all long guns, rifles, firearm precursor parts and ammunition. These taxes are to be collected from California retailers and placed in a newly created fund for appropriation by the state legislature. It is unjust to saddle law-abiding gun owners with special taxes. Such a measure makes it more expensive for law-abiding citizens to exercise a constitutional right, and discourages them from practicing to be safe and proficient with their firearms for purposes such as self-defense, competition, and hunting.

Assembly Appropriations Committee Wednesday, August 3rd:

Please contact the Assembly Appropriations Committee members here and ask them to please OPPOSE Senate Bills 918 and 505.

Senate Bill 918, introduced by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), was amended to defy the recent Supreme Court ruling placing significant reforms on California's existing conceal carry laws. Some of the provisions include:  significantly expanding gun-free zones, requiring signage for private businesses where you "can" carry, doubling training requirements, and maintaining the ability to do in-person interviews, psychiatric evaluations, and allowing "time place, and manner" restrictions on permits.

Senate Bill 505, introduced by Senator Nancy Skinner (D-9), makes a person who owns a firearm strictly civilly liable for each incident of property damage, bodily injury, or death resulting from the use of the firearm. Additionally, the legislation requires a firearm owner to obtain and continuously maintain insurance as well as keep evidence of this coverage where the firearm is stored.
