Default More concerns with ammunition

Post 3 of 3

More concerns with ammunition:

Liberty1 points out that possession of a firearm and the ammunition for it at a gun show is illegal, unless LEO, guard, or vendor
Quote:
12071.4. (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited as, the
Gun Show Enforcement and Security Act of 2000.

(g) No person at a gun show or event, other than security
personnel or sworn peace officers, shall possess at the same time
both a firearm and ammunition that is designed to be fired in the
firearm.
Vendors having those items at the show for sale or
exhibition are exempt from this prohibition...

(l) Unless otherwise specified, a first violation of this section
is an infraction. Any second or subsequent violation is a
misdemeanor. Any person who commits an act which he or she knows to
be a violation of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor for a first
offense.
uclaplinker found another one I missed (that's why group efforts are so useful!): Penal Code 12316(c) prohibits bringing ammunition onto school grounds:
Quote:
12316.
(c) Unless it is with the written permission of the school
district superintendent, his or her designee, or equivalent school
authority, no person shall carry ammunition or reloaded ammunition
onto school grounds, except sworn law enforcement officers acting
within the scope of their duties or persons exempted under
subparagraph (A) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section
12027.

This subdivision shall not apply to a duly appointed peace
officer as defined in Chapter 4.5 (commencing with Section 830) of
Title 3 of Part 2, ... , a person holding a valid license to carry the
firearm
pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 12050) of
Chapter 1 of Title 2 of Part 4, or an armored vehicle guard, who is
engaged in the performance of his or her duties, as defined in
subdivision (e) of Section 7521 of the Business and Professions Code.
A violation of this subdivision is punishable by imprisonment in a
county jail for a term not to exceed six months, a fine not to exceed
one thousand dollars ($1,000), or both the imprisonment and fine.
"district superintendent" seems to indicate K-12, but "equivalent school authority" might include colleges and universities as well.

Unless there is some way to amend a bill so you would support it,
the details do not matter until the Governor signs or allows the bill to become law.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
