CA sucks I need to get out of this state
Our State Government has stopped working for its citizen and is now working against its citizen. Gun Owners are citizens at least we were before today
SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced that he has signed the following bills:
• AB 1135 by Assemblymember Marc B. Levine (D-Marin County) – Firearms: assault weapons.
AB 1135, as amended, Levine. Firearms: assault weapons.
(1) Existing law generally prohibits the possession or transfer of assault weapons, except for the sale, purchase, importation, or possession of assault weapons by specified individuals, including law enforcement officers. Under existing law, “assault weapon” means, among other things, a semiautomatic centerfire rifle or a semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has any one ofbegin insert severalend insert specified attributes, including, for rifles, a thumbhole stock, and for pistols, a 2nd handgrip.
• AB 1511 by Assemblymember Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) – Firearms: lending. A signing message can be found here.
AB 1511 would effectively end the long-standing practice of temporarily loaning a firearm for lawful purposes. Under this legislation the ability to loan a firearm to anyone other than a family member would now be prohibited, absent limited exceptions, unless conducted through a dealer. This legislation is not anymore of a deterrent to criminals than current law, as possession by prohibited persons is already illegal. Instead, the real impact is on the law-abiding. A loan and return of a firearm under this legislation would require four trips to a gun store, two ten day waiting periods and two separate transfer fees, with no tangible benefit to public safety.
• AB 1695 by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Alameda) – Firearms: false reports of stolen firearms.
Assembly Bill 1695 would
AB 1695, as amended, Bonta. Firearms: false reports of stolen firearms.
This bill would make that prohibition applicable to a person who reports to certain individuals and peace officers that a firearm has been lost or stolen, knowing the report to be false. By changing the definition of an existing crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would also make it a misdemeanor for a person convicted of violating this provision to own a firearm within 10 years of the conviction. By expanding the scope of an existing crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
• SB 880 by Senator Isadore Hall III (D-Compton) – Firearms: assault weapons. A signing message can be found here.
The use of a "bullet button" currently keeps semi-automatics with detachable magazines from being classified as an "assault weapon." In banning the use of a "bullet button" the possessor will now have possession of what California law considers an "assault weapon." With this being said, the possessor will have to register that firearm as an "assault weapon" or face potential felony penalties, arrest, and confiscation of the firearm.
The explanation of registration in SB 880 means paying a registration fee and completing a registration form that contains:
A description of the firearm and unique identifiers;
The date the firearm was acquired
The name and address of the individual from whom, or business from which the firearm was acquired;
Registrant’s full name, address, telephone number, date of birth, height, weight, eye color, hair color, and;
California driver’s license number or California identification card number.
• SB 1235 by Senator Kevin De León (D-Los Angeles) – Ammunition.
AB 1235 regulates the sale of ammunition, and creates a more explicit definition of ammunition. The bill would place unjustified and burdensome restrictions on the purchase of ammunition and would require the attorney general to keep records of purchases. This legislation would further require any online ammunition sales to be conducted through a licensed vendor.
• SB 1446 by Senator Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley) – Firearms: magazine capacity.
This bill would, commencing July 1, 2017, make it an infraction punishable by a fine not to exceed $100 for the first offense, by a fine not to exceed $250 for the 2nd offense, and by a fine not to exceed $500 for the 3rd or subsequent offense, for a person to possess any large-capacity magazine, regardless of the date the magazine was acquired. The bill would require a person in lawful possession of a large-capacity magazine prior to July 1, 2017, to dispose of the magazine, as provided.
