California: Governor Takes Action on Bills Awaiting His Signature

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Tuesday, Governor Newsom announced action on the anti-gun bills awaiting his consideration before the September 30th deadline. Newsom vetoed SB 914, and signed AB 2362 and AB 2847. While the NRA applauds Governor Newsom's veto of SB 914, we continue to express our frustration over the continuing attack on our Second Amendment Rights with his signing of AB 2362 and AB 2847.

Vetoed – SB 914, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), further denies Second Amendment rights to young adults under the age of 21, narrows the exemptions for loaning long-guns to minors, and raises the fees the California Department of Justice can charge for eligibility checks on certain ammunition purchases and precursor parts.

Signed – AB 2362, sponsored by Assembly Member Al Muratsuchi (D-66), authorizes the Department of Justice to levy exorbitant fines on licensed firearms dealers for minor technical violations. This bill is an obvious attempt to drive dealers out of business for inconsequential violations.  

Signed – AB 2847, sponsored by Assembly Member David Chiu (D-17), revises the criteria for handguns to be certified for sale by requiring a microstamp in one place on the interior of the handgun (current law requires two imprinting locations). The bill also requires the removal of three certified handguns from the roster for each new handgun added.​ It should be noted that no new semi-automatic handguns have been added to the handgun roster since microstamping was certified in 2013. This legislation is nothing more than a means to reduce the options you have to protect yourself and your family. To read more about California's microstamping law, please click here.​

Please stop telling people to move from California… they are making Arizona a terrible place to live, one election at a time.

As a child I was taught not to wish ill upon others, Newsome proves the exception.

California is a lost cause. If you don’t possess firearms already, be prepared to do without or pay through the roof. The same goes for ammunition. These vipers have successfully gone after every facet of anything gun. Next, they will come for your guns they have on record. Moving, it seems is the only avenue left.

Why are we so cordial to the people stealing our freedoms? If they were stealing guns from our homes, we’d shoot them on site.

Note to Californians from their own government: “We, the governing classes (vanguard of the proletariat) in the Republik of Kalifornia do declare the overwhelming majority (99%) of Kalifornians to be trolls, Prols and parasites not worthy of liberty in any form. You elected us. Learn to live within the confines of your bonds and cages.”

Gee, I guess you cannot by replacement firing pins anymore. Kommifornia is so crazy. Go to oregone or nevada, get an apartment and a neveda dl, go to the gun store and buy all the guns that say not for sale in kommifornia and then move back and not tell them..How stupid can you get. Nevada or Oregone does not notify kommifornia that you have guns and what they are, there are no questions on your new kommifornia drivers license asking if and what kind of guns you have, there are no documents requiring you tell any government agency what… Read more »

Do not be so surprised. I work gun shows in Mohave County AZ for AZCDL. We see Cal DoJ folks here all the time scoping out the parking lots. Yes, you can get a state ID in many states. That does not change your residence. If you vote in CA they own you, lock, stock and barrel. Get caught with the wrong lower on your AR barrel and you will see the inside of one of their better reeducation camps. Here is the answer. If you value liberty, flipping move.

Actually when moving into California one is required to register all guns being brought into the state. You may import them as you move, but if you leave some behind, it is legal to take them to your new home at a later date. As part of this process, you are required to describe the firearms, they will not provide guidance or assistance in determining which ones meet California legal requirements- but if you import something the don’t like, they will track you down and prosecute you. I checked up on this and even called CA-DOJ with questions when stupidly… Read more »

This guy has visions of becoming president and doing to the United States what he has done to California.
