California Legislative Committees Pass 7 Gun Control Bills, Hold 2 Back

SACRAMENTO, CA-( Firearms Policy Coalition reported that the California Legislature’s respective Senate and Assembly Appropriations committees acted on a number of bills that would affect California gun owners, visitors, and new residents.

The California Senate Appropriations Committee acted on the following bills:

  • AB 3 (Bonta) – Held by the committee. Would have restricted firearm sales to persons 21 years old and older. FPC opposed.
  • AB 1927 (Bonta) – Passed by the committee. Now a “study bill” relating to a potential voluntary firearms “do not sell” system. FPC opposed.
  • AB 2382 (Gipson) – Held by the committee. Would have created a massive new set of restrictions on firearm parts and required an expensive new DOJ system like that enacted for ammunition in Proposition 63 (2016) and SB 1235 (2016). 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.
  • AB 2888 (Ting) – Passed by the committee. Expands categories of persons who can petition for a “Gun Violence Restraining Order” (GVRO) to employers, coworkers, and some school employees. FPC opposed.

The California Assembly Appropriations Committee acted on the following 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.

“We are pleased to see the beyond-awful AB 2382, that we strongly opposed, meet its likely demise today, but there is a mountain of work left to do,” said Craig DeLuz, FPC legislative advocate and spokesperson. “We will continue to fight for freedom and strongly oppose every single bill that would infringe the fundamental rights of California gun owners and visitors. We look forward to stopping more bad bills in the Legislature and at the Governor’s office.”

While bills that were held by an appropriations committee are likely “dead” by rules, FPC cautions that the Legislature often waives rules and amends “dead” language into other “live” bills. Thus, gun owners are encouraged to send the Legislature a message voicing their opinion on these and other bills at

More BS from the Left. A day after the body of a 20-year-old woman is discovered murdered in a cornfield in Iowa….two days after ICE picks up an illegal wanted for murder in Mexico….screw the citizens of California. We don’t matter. Open the flood gates and give MS-13 a key to the state.

Didn’t you mean, “Blood Gates”?

This is where all Californians need to step up to the plate and start recalling each and every one of these people that are violating your constitutional rights.

You don’t wait for election time with that namby-pamby b******* about “We will vote them out of office” crap! You yank their butts out of their positions right now as fast as you can!

It’s time to get the next civil war started. We have the guns, we should make the rules.

Dave Diesel

If and when a civil war ever happens, the government will start it and finish it quickly.. You are up against one of the most powerful governments and military’s in the world and no amount of disorganised people with guns will ever be a threat to more than the people themselves. IF something big starts most everybody will go home and play Alamo those who don’t will die first followed by the rest playing Alamo. You lost the country by design that is why you were given the Vote and Prayer for control. When you trust what you value most… Read more »

@Glenndolph Howse, Guns are not the key to winning. Logistics are the key to winning in war. The federal government has almost unlimited resources. The trick would be to get the libtards, homosocialists, and hard core unemployables of the Depraved, Nasty, Corruption party to revolt … first. Then we could “help restore order”.

Gregory Romeu

I would be interested to hear about what kind of military experience you’ve got, if any at all, in he making that decision?


AB1968 would instantly cover anyone that voted DEMOCRAT, especially more than once ! The California voters are their own worst enemy.


Taxes are so high it’s crazy, libs just keep passing more and more gun laws, and now it looks like you won’t be able
To by your own children a root beer when you go out to eat! Pick up and move out. Let those liberal Hollywood people support the state. See how far that goes.
