I wish these guys would stop trying to show us that they are willing to work on Sunday. On a Sunday Jerry Brown signed into law three new gun laws in Ca.Sometimes I wish these guys would take Sunday off.
Assembly bill 809 now requires registration for all new long guns that are sold but it doesn't take effect until Jan. 1st 2014.
Senate bill 819 allows the Department of Justice to use the Dealer Record of Sales (DROS) funds to help pay for enforcement of California firearm possession laws in the Armed & Prohibited Persons Systems program. The DROS fund monies were originally collected from every firearm purchaser to pay for the administrative process for background checks. This new law will divert hundreds of thousands of dollars of DROS fee monies that YOU have paid for background checks. As a result, the DROS fund will run out of money and when it does, they will want another increase in the fees YOU PAY for FIREARM background checks in California.Takes affect Jan 2012.
Assembly bill 114 outlaws all open cary of an unloaded hand gun. Takes affect on Jan 2012
Senate bill 427 was vetoed,It iwas vetoed only because of a pending suit on Assembly bill 962.This bill would have granted authority to law enforcement to collect sales records from ammunition retailers, required ammunition vendors to notify local law enforcement of their intention to engage in the business of selling ammunition AND includes a list of calibers which would have to be registered to purchasers at the point-of-purchase. This list contains ammunition popular among hunters and collectors. This point-of-sale registration of all ammunition purchases in the state would be available for inspection by the California Department of Justice at any time.
