CA Legislative Committees Pass Seven Gun Control Bills

By AWR Hawkins

A California Senate committee and an assembly committee passed a total of seven new gun control bills during the past week.

The majority of the bills expand gun controls that are already in place.

The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) reported on the seven gun control bills:

  • SB 746 (Portantino) – Passed by the committee with amendments. Expands firearm serial number requirements; modifies existing statutes to allow prohibited persons to transfer firearms and ammunition to a licensed FFL for the duration of the prohibition. FPC opposed the expanded serial number requirements.

  • SB 1100 (Portantino) – Passed by the committee. Restricts firearm sales to persons 21 years old and older. FPC opposed.

  • SB 1177 (Portantino) – Passed by the committee. Restricts new firearm purchases to one in thirty days (expanding existing handgun restriction to long guns). FPC opposed.

  • AB 2103 (Gloria) – Passed by the committee with amendments. Adds new requirements for CCW carry licenses. FPC opposed.

  • AB 1968 (Low) – Passed by the committee. Enacts new lifetime firearm prohibition to persons who have been admitted to a mental health facility under certain conditions more than once in a 1-year period. FPC opposed.

  • AB 2222 (Quirk) – Passed by the committee. Extends a reporting requirement concerning stolen, lost, found, recovered firearms to all law enforcement agencies. FPC is reviewing for possible support.
