An excerpt:

Brown announced Friday that he had signed:

Assembly Bill 48, by Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, banning magazine repair kits.

Assembly Bill 170, by Assemblyman Steven Bradford, D-Gardena, prohibiting businesses from getting assault weapon permits.

Assembly Bill 231, by Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, adding criminal liability for firearm storage that endangers a child.

Assembly Bill 500, by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, allowing the Department of Justice additional time to run background checks.

Assembly Bill 1131, by Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, increasing prohibition periods after a credible threat of violence

Senate Bill 683, by Sen. Marty Block, D-San Diego, requiring all gun purchasers to take a firearm safety class and earn a safety certificate.

Brown vetoed:

Assembly Bill 169, by Assemblyman Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento, which would have limited the transfer of unsafe handguns.

Assembly Bill 180, by Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, would have allowed Oakland to enact stricter gun control measures. Brown said in a veto message that "allowing individual cities to enact their own more restrictive firearms regulations will sow confusion and uncertainty." Brown is a former mayor of Oakland.

Senate Bill 299, by Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord, which would have required owners to report lost or stolen guns within seven days.

Senate Bill 475, by Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, which would have required county approval for gun shows at the Cow Palace.

Senate Bill 567, by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, which would have redefined "shotguns."

Senate Bill 755, by Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, which would have expanded the list of crimes that result in a 10-year ban on owning a firearm to include driving under the influence and public intoxication when there are two convictions in three years.

And of course Bill 374, the worst of the lot.
