Arrow 2019 CA Legislation Quick-Reference & Statuses (Updated 1/17)

For the community to be able to help keep this information up-to-date, this thread is "open" for you to post in. However, for the sake of keeping the thread clean and concise, please adhere to the rules below.

Feel free to post:
  • Information about new firearm-related bills not yet listed here.
  • Updates/movement with bills that are listed here.
  • Suggested corrections to the content of this thread.
  • Questions or comments about how the legislative process works, terminology, etc.
Please DO NOT post:
  • Questions or commentary about specific bills. Most bills already have a dedicated discussion thread, with links provided here. If it doesn't, feel free to make one and I'll add the link to this page.
  • "Tagged", "subscribed", etc. There is a handy link at the top of this page for subscribing to this thread - use that please.
Periodically, any posts that are no longer necessary or relevant, or that don't follow the above rules, will be cleared out - don't take it personally, I clear out even many of my own posts.



Basic Overview of the Legislative Process:
  • 2019 is the first year of the two-year 2019/20 legislative session.
  • The last day for the legislature to introduce new bills is 2/22. However, any bill can be, and often is, "amended" (partially or entirely) all the way until 9/6.
  • For a bill to become law, it must be passed by both legislative Houses: the 40-member Senate (29 Democrats, 11 Republicans) and the 80-member Assembly (60 Democrats, 20 Republicans).
  • Generally, each bill requires over 50% approval to be passed (a simple majority), unless noted otherwise in the bill's description. Some rare exceptions include bills with tax implications, urgency clauses, or amendments to the State Constitution which all require a two-thirds (66.67%) vote in both Houses, and certain other bills which require 55% in both houses. A two-thirds vote in both Houses is also required for a bill to be eligible for veto-overriding (however the CA legislature virtually never exercises that ability, even when they can - it's been over 40 years since the last time they did).
  • In the House of the bill's origin, before it is eligible for a floor vote, gun-related bills are typically assigned to two Committees, where they can be amended, passed through, or failed.
  • Committee compositions are decided by each House's leadership shortly before the start of each two-year session.
  • Firearm-related bills are typically assigned to one or both of the committees listed below, but in some cases depending on the content of the bill, may be assigned to other committees.
    Typical Senate Committees: The 7-member Public Safety Committee "SPSC" (5 Democrats, 2 Republicans), and the 7-member Appropriations Committee "SAC" (5 Democrats, 2 Republicans).
    Typical Assembly Committees: The 8-member Public Safety Committee "APSC" (6 Democrats, 2 Republicans) and the 17-member Appropriations Committee "AAC" (12 Democrats, 5 Republicans).
  • If the committees pass the bill by 5/17, it goes to a House floor vote where it must be passed by 5/31.
  • The bill then goes to the other House, where that House's committees must pass the bill by 8/30, after which that House floor must pass the bill by 9/13.
  • If the second House amended the bill at all, then it must have a concurrence vote in the House of origin, also by 9/13.
  • Passed bills are sent to the governor, who has until 10/13 to issue a veto. If not vetoed, the bill becomes law as of the Governor's signing or 10/14 (whichever comes first), and takes effect on 1/1/2020, or later if otherwise specified, or immediately if the bill has an urgency clause (bills cannot take effect before 1/1/2020 without an urgency clause).
  • For a more thorough explanation of the legislative process, see this thread.
  • And finally, what can WE do to help good bills pass and bad bills fail? See post #2 for information.

There are 8 gun-related bills so far:
  • 0 Pro-2a
  • 4 Neutral/Undetermined - 4 active
  • 4 Anti-2a - 4 active

Important info about this list:
  • They are sorted in a multi-level fashion, in this order of priority:
    • From furthest progression to least progression
    • By their effect on gun owners (Green bills are pro-2a, orange bills are neutral or undetermined, and red bills are anti-2a)
    • By their house of origin (Assembly bills first, Senate bills second)
    • By their bill number.
  • Each bill's vote history is written as (Y-N-X, %), where Y = "aye", N = "no", X = "not voting", and % = Y/(Y+N+X).
    "Not voting" members must be present at the hearing; it does not include vacant seats or absent members, and it is treated exactly the same as a "no" vote.
The list of bills starts on Post #3.



This is the 3rd annual "CA Legislation Quick-Reference & Statuses" thread. For those who are curious, here are the previous years.

What can we do?

It's easy to forget that the legislature is NOT a blind and deaf, self-governing entity. They were hired by us, and they work for us. They get their ideas for bills from people like you and me, and they hear input from their constituents before they vote. Re-election is nearly always priority #1, and if they are facing overwhelming opposition to their ideas or votes, they will change if they want to keep their jobs.


Proposing an idea for a new bill.

This can be done year-round, but it is perhaps most effective to propose bill ideas during the time between legislative sessions, which is roughly Mid-September through the end of the year. February 22nd is the deadline for a legislator to introduce a new bill for that year.

If you do not know who your local Senator and Assembly member are, you can quickly find them here: http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/.

Carefully craft your idea for the bill into a friendly and brief letter, including supporting arguments, and send it to your Senator and/or Assembly member. It may even be worth trying to schedule a phone call or face-to-face meeting with your representative to discuss your idea. You do not need to worry about the precise language for your bill idea - your representative is a lawmaker, so that part is their job.

With a little luck, hopefully your representative likes your idea and introduces a bill for it. If they don't, then thank them for their time and move on, don't harass them about it. They can only introduce so many bills per session and yours may not have fit into their overall legislative plan for the year, or they might simply disagree with your idea - in either case, you may want to submit your ideas to Representatives from other districts.


Voicing your support/concern about an existing bill.

If you want to make your voice be heard, the "what, where, who, and how" all depend on where a particular bill currently stands - making the wrong move at the wrong time or to the wrong people will cause your argument to fall on deaf ears. For example, contacting a Senator about a bill that is in the Assembly would be a misuse of both your and their time. As would contacting the Governor about a bill that is still in policy committee, and so on. The exception to that rule is that it is always a good time to contact a bill's author(s) to either thank them or express your concerns, as they have the ability to amend or withdraw a bill at any time, in any House or committee, before it reaches the Governor.

Each bill in this list shows its current location, and who you should be contacting right now to voice your opinions.

For bills in Committee, the hearings are public events that you can attend in person, to voice your support or concerns. Look at each bill's status page on the Legislature website to find out if a committee hearing for the bill is scheduled (be aware that they often don't have time to discuss every scheduled bill on a given day, so it might get pushed to another day). You may also contact the Committee members online, by mail, or by phone. Committees can amend bills as well, so feel free to propose any ideas for amendments that you may have.

Contact your district representative online, by mail, or by phone, for bills that have passed committee and are ready for a Floor vote.

Contact the Governor's office, for bills that have passed both Houses of the legislature. Phone is the ideal method for reaching the governor's office, since he may act on bills very quickly once they hit his desk.


An important note about contacting our elected officials.

Be polite and courteous when you contact Representatives or the Governor. Whether they are Democrat or Republican should not affect what you say to them.

Nobody likes to be yelled at, belittled, insulted, or harassed. YOU wouldn't be receptive to that, and neither will they. Courtesy can mean the difference between your message being heard or ignored.

Keep your message concise and on-point. Express your concerns or support for the bill, then thank them for their time and consideration. Nothing more really needs to be said beyond that.


----------------------------------------------------------------------


A reminder about watching what you say on public forums.

DO NOT discuss shortcomings, potential loopholes, etc., in ANY anti-2a bills until after the Governor signs or vetoes it, or 10/13. And in the case of any bills for which agency regulations will need to be written after the law passes, please also continue to avoid discussions of loopholes, shortcomings, etc., until after those regulations are published.

It is well-known that the information posted in these forums often gets back to the legislature, and it absolutely can affect (and probably has affected) the content of anti-2a bills in ways that hurt us.

Treat these forums as if they are "open letters to the legislature", because they basically are.

And when a bill is riddled with errors, problems, or omissions, sometimes silence is the best course of action for us to take - let the bill fail on its own merits.

  • Assembly Vote History: n/a Senate Vote History: n/a
  • Location / Status: 12/3/2018 - Bill introduced, pending committee referral. Contact Assembly member Levine and urge him to withdraw this bill from committee consideration.

These misdemeanors include: DUI, drunk in public, DUI Causing Injury, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, and vehicular manslaughter. A nearly identical bill (SB-755) was vetoed by brown in 2013, who said he didn't see a value in a prohibition for violations that are non-felonies, non-violent, and non-firearm-related.

Welcome to 2019, colloquially known as "Nineteen Eighty-Four: Chapter 1".

Last year, we had 44 gun-related bills. 14 were Pro-2a (of which 2 passed), 14 were Neutral/Undetermined (of which 6 passed), and 16 were Anti-2a (of which 4 passed).

It wasn't too bad of a year. Brown was Governor, our state Senate was split 25-14, and our state Assembly was split 55-25. Aside from the new "age 21 for all gun purchases", the legislature did very little to trample on our rights.

This year, as you probably already know, is much different.

Newsom is Governor, and the Senate and Assembly are split 29-11 and 60-20 respectively. Our state is bluer than we've ever seen in any of our lifetimes.

As such, more than ever, gun owners in this state need to be proactive to protect our rights. It works - last year, despite the similar presence of a Democrat government trifecta, we had 2 pro-gun bills pass, and defeated 75% of the anti-gun bills, undoubtedly partly because people like us made our voices heard. DO NOT GIVE UP.

Please, if you haven't already, read post #2 to familiarize yourself with how you can act to protect the Second Amendment.

In their eagerness to pass anti gun legislation, ignorance appears to be dominant.

Hannah Beth Jackson introduced Senate Bill 55 (currently not public on leg info) to expand the list of 10 year prohibited persons to include those convicted of "serious alcohol related crimes" including vehicular manslaughter and "multiple" dui's.

It may or may not end up having any 2A relevance, for right now we should just keep an eye on it. The author, Senator Skinner, is a rabid anti-gunner - last session she sponsored SB-1100 (age 21 for all gun sales) and authored SB-1200 (expansion of GVRO laws), both of which were passed and signed by Brown.
I'm sure some how smokeless powder will fall into the mix, For all the reloaders it may be someting to watch.

I think something very important to mention when contacting these representatives is not only supporting our 2a, general gun rights, and due process, but also bringing up how certain bills can be considered class warfare on the poor and middle class.

"Social Justice" is a huge topic in urban environments these days, so why not show how certain bills goes against those values (even if we don't agree with any, some, or all of them)

AB55 and SB18 specifically will target people who are poor, who are in less than ideal situations, and more likely stripping them of their natural rights of self defense than a similar person in middle or upper class.

Edit: Think to the recently passed law allowing home chefs to sell their own food. It was framed as a social justice issue that specifically took aim with the argument "these restrictions affect the working poor the most"

EDIT:

Here's what I emailed to Marc Levine

Quote:
Hello Assemblyman Levine,

I'm writing you today to express my opposition of AB-18 (Handgun & Semiauto Rifle Excise Tax)

As a decent earning resident of the bay area, and firearm enthusiast, this bill will not affect my purchases much at all. To the point where I don't particularly care if it passes.... For my sake

But, where I do care is how this will affect low income earners state wide.

When buying a rifle or a handgun, California residents already pay a $25 Department Record of Sale fee, sales tax (for me, that is 9.25%), and a dealer fee (face to face transfers are ~$10 dollars) or a transfer fee (set by the licensed 01FFL. A common fee is around $30-$40)

Buying a $200 firearm in California already costs, after taxes and fees, up to $352.75, depending on locality, dealer or 01FFL fee, etc. Another $25 will bring us up to $377.75.

For myself, I'm lucky enough that a $25 addition to any purchase I make is not going to set me back any time, or force myself to give up in other parts of my life.

But for someone who lives at or below the poverty line, as many people in our minority communities do, an extra $25 on a purchase may be the difference between lawful, moral use and ownership of a firearm, as opposed to going without, or worse, turning to illegal purchases which may truly ruin a life.

To support this tax directly works toward stripping the right of self defense and firearm ownership from our already most vulnerable group of citizens.

I ask that you strongly consider withdrawing this bill from the State Assembly.

Thank you!

For right now, it's just a placeholder bill, with the declared intent of eventually becoming a bill about illegally possessing explosives and destructive devices. It may or may not end up having any 2A relevance, for right now we should just keep an eye on it. The author, Senator Skinner, is a rabid anti-gunner - last session she sponsored SB-1100 (age 21 for all gun sales) and authored SB-1200 (expansion of GVRO laws), both of which were passed and signed by Brown.

that's the point.

BTW all bills will pass and will be signed with great fan fare by Newsom.

If I get the 03 , does waiting period still exist ? Would it make cash and carry in Nevada and Oregon?

Default SB 37

CockedandGlocked ...


Your take on whether SB-37 impacts reloading. I seem to recall a distinction between explosives and gun powder. Is my recollection correct?

SB-55 (10-year ban for 2+ specified misdemeanor violations in 3 years)
SB-61 (1-in-30 for all gun purchases)


Both bills were just assigned to the Senate Public Safety Committee. Contact the committee & its members and urge them to vote NO.
