California governor signs 15 new gun-control bills, incl. America’s worst red-flag law

On Friday, October 11, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, signed 15 gun-related bills into law, further tightening the state’s already-stringent Second Amendment restrictions. The laws will take effect Jan. 1, 2020.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) and its state affiliate, the California Rifle and Pistol Association, oppose the new laws. (Los Angeles Times)

The 15 new gun control laws include:

“Red flag” laws:

  • AB 12 by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) extends the duration of a gun violence restraining order (GVRO) to a maximum of five years.
  • AB 61 by Assemblymember Philip Ting (D-San Francisco) allows an employer, coworker, or an employee or teacher to file a petition requesting a gun violence restraining order. Note that this bill had been vetoed twice by Newsom’s predecessor, Jerry Brown. Even the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) opposes this law because AB 61 “poses a significant threat to civil liberties” in that a restraining order can be sought before a gun owner has an opportunity to dispute the request, and because those making a request under the new law may “lack the relationship or skills required to make an appropriate assessment.” (Fox News)
  • AB 164 by Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Riverside) holds any person subject to a valid restraining order, injunction, or protective order issued out of state to the same restrictions on buying or possessing firearms in California as they are under in the state where the order or injunction is operative.
  • AB 339 by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) requires law enforcement agencies to develop and adopt written policies and standards regarding the use of gun violence restraining orders.
  • AB 1493 by Assemblymember Philip Ting (D-San Francisco) authorizes a person who is the subject of a gun violence restraining order to petition to submit a form to the court voluntarily relinquishing their firearm rights.

Laws on firearms sales:

  • SB 61 by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) prohibits the sale of a semiautomatic centerfire rifle to any person under 21 years of age, and applications to purchase more than one semiautomatic centerfire rifle in any 30-day period, with a few exceptions.
  • SB 376 by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) prevents individuals from selling large numbers of firearms without a license by capping the number of annual sales at 5 transactions or 50 firearms.
  • AB 645 by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) requires packaging for firearms to contain a warning statement on suicide prevention.
  • AB 879 by Assemblymember Mike Gipson (D-Carson) requires, starting in 2024, that the sale of firearms precursor parts be conducted through a licensed firearms precursor part vendor.
  • AB 1669 by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Alameda) updates existing law by applying the same gun show regulations that already apply to firearms dealers to ammunition vendors, and ensures that sufficient funding is available for firearm regulatory efforts.
  • AB 1297 by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) requires any local authority issuing concealed firearm licenses to charge an applicant a fee sufficient to cover the reasonable costs of processing, issuing and enforcement of the license, and eliminates the existing $100 limit on processing fees for concealed firearm licenses.
  • AB 893 by Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) prohibits the sale of firearms and ammunitions at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in the County of San Diego, the City of Del Mar, the City of San Diego.

Other laws:

  • AB 1548 by Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel (D-Encino) codifies the California State Nonprofit Security Grant Program to improve the physical security of nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of violent attacks or hate crimes due to ideology, beliefs, or mission.
  • AB 1603 by Assemblymember Buffy Wicks (D-Oakland) codifies the California Violence Intervention and Prevention Grant Program to help reduce violence in communities that are disproportionately impacted by violence.
  • AB 521 by Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) requires, with the adoption of a resolution by the University of California, the UC Firearm Violence Research Center at the University of California, Davis to develop multifaceted education and training programs for medical and mental health providers on the prevention of firearm-related injury and death.

Taxpayers in that state will now be spending lots of their money on the inevitable lawsuits.

I’m sure the criminals are all now brushing up on the new laws to make sure they comply…

Where is the “Red Flag” law on politicians, police, judges, ALL government employees? These SOBs think they can just take your property based on sketchy claims? Well how about the SAME process for them?! Red Flags on pedophile priests! Why did it take DECADES for the politicians to do ANYTHING?! They are capable of, and DO, far more damage to Citizens, to Rights, to Taxes, then lone actors. The insane politicians do corrupt and unjust acts, police murder unarmed Citizens, judges are corrupt and rule STUPIDLY, employees are incompetent, and corrupt. They all make LIFE & DEATH decisions, are they… Read more »

I considered selling my weapons back to the government, but after a background check and thorough investigation into the buyer, I determined that the buyer has a history of violence and is mentally unstable…to big a risk to everyone around it. Whenever they nasally whine “You don’t NEED a “Weapon of WAR”” read this to them: WE pay for THEIR prepping….. as they attack Our RIGHT to keep a semi-automatic rifle I’d like to point out …. In order to “feel safe” the politicians “need” 7,000+ nuclear warheads ,,, at least 11 aircraft carrier battle groups and hundreds more ships… Read more »

There has all ready been more gun laws passed than the honest and true U.S. citizens will abide. They are all infringements, they are all irrelevant, and “all” should be ignored as the unConstitutional acts they are. There whole stupid “red flag” proposals are bound to cause the taking of more lives than they could possibly save.

The whole idea of “Gun Control” is pure bullsh*t. I live in a State that has NO “Gun Control” to speak of. I can buy ANY Handgun, Rifle, or Shotgun (not presently banned by fed gov) I desire without first having to get permission from the state (gun owner ID card), and without having to pay them any fees. There are no “Red Flag” laws, no waiting periods, no magazine capacity bans, no ammo bans, and no assault weapons bans. Thanks to Constitutional Carry, I can carry concealed for self defense without having to get permission from the state (a… Read more »

How’s your Economy and living conditions for Elderly people? I’m considering a possible move from my current home in FINO (Free In Name Only) Nevada,which is a Red State except for 3 Democrat-Concentrated Dots,Reno,Carson City and Lost Wages. If the next Race for Governor doesn’t make Nevada’s Political system Conservative,I’m outta here.

“your” politicians make life & death decisions everyday. Decisions that affect Your economic, medical, mental, and physical health and safety. They decide the fates of MILLIONS of People. Where is THEIR “screening”? W-rong Bush hired the former head of the East German STASI, Marcus Wolf, and Yevgeny Primakov, former head of the KGB, to design Homeland Security ( both Jews, Followed by more “dual”citizen creeps.). Why? To bring oppression and the STASI SNITCH SYSTEM here…………….. and here it IS. Where are the RED FLAG laws on Politicians? DEMAND they do the exact same thing-PLUS. Politicians, Police, Judges, Government Workers make… Read more »

Happily signing away the US Bill of Rights and the idiots around him for photo ops clap and smile in agreement. Billionaire Getty plant, groomed for the job he is doing, one of the four families that have run CA behind closed doors for the last half a century, Newsoms, Gettys, Browns & Pelosis. It is organized crime running the communist colony of California.

If it’s not guns, it’s plastic straws. Am I correct that both will get you arrested? Also all these fires. Are they a way to get people to leave?
