Cali Legislature Makes More Moves to Restrict 2nd Amendment

The California Legislature is attempting to pass further restrictions on Second Amendment rights, NRA-ILA reports. Here’s a rundown: Senate Bill 1221, introduced by state Senator Ted Lieu (D-28), would ban hunting bears and bobcats with dogs. NRA-ILA says SB 1221 is supported by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) — a radical group that supports banning all hunting with or without dogs.

A proposed California law would ban hunting bears and bobcats with dogs.

Senate Bill 1315, introduced by anti-gun extremist state Senator Kevin de León (D-22), would allow the County of Los Angeles and any city within that county, to regulate and ban the sale of any BB “device,” toy gun, replica of a firearm, or similar device. NRA-ILA says the bill is a step toward destroying California’s firearms-preemption law, which keeps law-abiding gun owners from running afoul of local restrictions when they pass from one municipality to another.

Senate Bill 1366, introduced by state Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-7), would require every person to report the theft or loss of a firearm he or she owns or possesses to a local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred within 48 hours of the time he or she knew or reasonably should have known that the firearm had been stolen or lost. NRA-ILA says law-abiding gun owners should not be made a victim twice.

Assembly Bill 2333, introduced by Assembly Member Jose Solorio (D-69), would expand the crime of bringing a BB gun onto school grounds, to include non-metallic projectiles, and would impose an unnecessary and potentially severe criminal liability on everyday toys (not just BB guns and pellet guns) with severe penalties. NRA-ILA says that under this bill, parents who inadvertently have toy guns in their cars when picking up children from schools can end up facing felony charges and up to a year in jail.

  1. Richard is right. Hunting bears/bobcats with dogs has Nothing to do with the 2nd. I have no problem with requiring the reporting of stolen firearms. Part of responsible ownership is Knowing Where It Is! SB 1315 is about sales. It has no effect on possession within or through LA County. So the argument that it runs afoul of CA law preventing owners from encountering different laws as the travel is simply False (and, frankly, ridiculous).
    As for AB 2333, someone should READ it. A toy (with the front of the barrel painted bright orange) is NOT considered under such a ban. And even if a parent drives onto campus with a “realistic” toy gun in the car, he/she does Not face felony charges.
    In fact, ” For a first instance, a written warning, or be required to successfully complete a course of instruction applicable to the BB devices that includes the principles of safe handling and storage, or both the written warning and the class;

    b) For a second instance, a civil fine not to exceed $100, or be required to successfully complete an advanced course of instruction applicable to the BB devices that includes the principles of safe handling and storage, or both the fine and the class.

    C’mon, folks. Don’t be part of the idiotic fear-mongering on both sides. Read and think for yourself.

    If you are so stupid as to be caught doing this a third time, you face “a civil fine not to
    exceed $200, or a requirement to perform community service, or both the fine and community service. ”
    Not exactly “hard time.”
