The CalNRA site lists AB373 as a bill allowing dealers to sell used handguns and to support it. The California Legislative info says otherwise.

"SECTION 1. Section 12040 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
12040. (a) A person commits criminal possession of a firearm when
he or she carries a firearm in a public place or on any public
street while masked so as to hide his or her identity.
(b) Criminal possession of a firearm is punishable by imprisonment
in the state prison or by imprisonment in a county jail not to
exceed one year.
(c) Subdivision (a) shall not apply to the following:
(1) A peace officer who is in the performance of his or her
(2) Full-time paid peace officers of other states and the federal
government who are carrying out official duties while in this state.
(3) Any A person summoned by any of
the officers enumerated in paragraph (1) or (2) to assist in making
arrests or preserving the peace while he or she is actually engaged

(4) The possession of an unloaded firearm or a firearm loaded with

looks like that is just a placeholder bill for now, and that it will be amended later.
