Arrow 2018 CA Legislation Quick-Reference & Statuses (Updated 7/6)

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:
  • 2018 is the second year of the two-year 2017/18 legislative session. See this thread for the 2017 year.
  • The last day for the legislature to introduce new bills is 2/16. However, any bill can be, and often is, "amended" (partially or entirely) all the way until 8/31.
  • For a bill to become law, it must be passed by both legislative Houses: the 40-member Senate (25 Democrats, 14 Republicans, 1 vacancy) and the 80-member Assembly (55 Democrats, 25 Republicans).
  • Most bills require over 50% vote ("majority") for passage, but certain bills (especially those with tax implications or urgency clauses) require 55% or 66.7% ("super-majority") in both Houses. A 66.7% vote in both Houses is also required for a bills to be eligible for veto-overriding (however the CA legislature virtually never uses that ability - 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 neither, or 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 7-member Public Safety Committee "APSC" (5 Democrats, 2 Republicans) and the 17-member Appropriations Committee "AAC" (12 Democrats, 5 Republicans).
  • If the committees pass the bill by 5/25, it goes to a House floor vote where it must be passed by 6/1.
  • "Carryover" bills (bills which neither passed nor failed in 2017) must be passed by their house of origin committees by 1/19, and their floor by 1/31, instead of the usual 5/26 and 6/2 deadlines.
  • The bill then goes to the other House, where that House's committees must pass the bill by 8/17, after which that House floor must pass the bill by 8/31.
  • If the second House amended the bill at all, then it must have a concurrence vote in the House of origin, also by 8/31.
  • Passed bills are sent to the governor, who has until 9/30 to issue a veto. If not vetoed, the bill becomes law as of the Governor's signing or 10/1 (whichever comes first), and takes effect on 1/1/2019 by default, or later if otherwise specified, or immediately if the bill has 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? Scroll to post #2 for information.

There are 43 gun-related bills so far:
  • 14 Pro-2a - 2 active, 12 failed
  • 14 Neutral/Undetermined - 1 passed, 8 active, 5 failed
  • 15 Anti-2a - 12 active, 3 failed

Important info about this list:
  • The bills start on Post #3. They are sorted by their progression through the Legislature.
  • Note that each bill's floor vote history on this page is written as (Y-N-X, %). Y = "aye", N = "no", X = "present, but not voting" (functionally the same as a "no" vote).
  • The % is the number of "aye" votes out of the total number of members present for the vote. Each bill requires "Aye" votes from over 50% (majority) of members present, unless noted otherwise in the bill's description.

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 16th 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.


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.


A reminder about watching what you say on public forums.

DO NOT discuss shortcomings, potential loopholes, etc., in ANY anti-2a bills until after (if) the Governor signs or vetoes it, or 10/1. 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.

...continued from above

SB-1200 (Expands on Gun Violence Restraining Order laws) Link to bill
  • Author(s): Skinner (D) Coauthor(s): n/a
  • Summary: A gut-and-amend, previously just a placeholder. Would include "firearm parts" in the list of prohibited items when a GVRO is issued; prohibits courts from charging fees for GVRO's; requires a court to hold a hearing within 21 days of a temporary GVRO being issued to see if it should become a 1-year order.
  • Senate Vote History: SPSC (5-1-1), SAC (5-1-1), Floor (30-8-1, 76%) Assembly Vote History: APSC (6-1-0)
  • Location / Status: 6/19/2018 - In AAC. Contact the AAC members to urge them to vote NO.

SJR-24 (A general legislative complaint about guns) Link to bill
  • Author(s): Jackson (D) Coauthor(s): n/a
  • Summary: A Joint Resolution (does not require Governor's signature), this bill basically would "send a message" (to whoever will listen) that CA doesn't like guns, and that the US should enact stricter gun control. This bill wouldn't actually "do" anything, it's only meant to make it look like someone is "doing something". As a Joint Resolution bill, it bypasses the Governor's desk and goes into law immediately upon passage.
  • Senate Vote History: SPSC (5-2-0), Employ/Retire Committee (3-1-1), SAC (5-2-0), Floor (24-9-6, 61%) Assembly Vote History: Employ/Retire Committee (1-1-5)
  • Location / Status: 6/7/2018 - In Assembly Public Employees, Retirement, and Social Security. Failed (1-1-5) because a majority of committee members did not vote, but it will be voted on again later. Contact the APERSS members to urge them to vote NO.

There's no time limit on when these bills might make an appearance, Gut-and-Amends can happen at any time up to 9/1.

It's likely that they're currently still debating about which bill to gut and amend. As we saw with the AB-3 gut-and-amend, they try to use bills that: 1) have progressed pretty far through the legislature already, 2) have either a low or an easy-to-remember bill number, and 3) replace a bill that otherwise had a low chance of passing or wasn't considered very important.
I knew this would happen. Should this be put into a gut and amend bill. This will be worse than any bill that we have ever seen. While not a surprise it really was only a matter of time. We can thank Prop 63 for passing for this to come to fruition. This bill is worse than SB1100.

WHy isn't:
*AB-3064 (Felon in possession of firearm)* - Proving that the left doesn't actually care whatsoever about reducing crime, this bill failed In APSC (2-5), and is probably now dead but may still be re-considered before the deadline.


Publicized more by NRA/CRPA/etc.. Same with the law Brown vetoed that would have made it felony if you have a stolen firearm < $1000 (or was it $950) in value..

The Brown veto was last year though and I never see it publicized more.

You need to change the subheadings, they're all still the same from your cut-and-paste (they are all the "floor vote" version, I believe)

How do I email them? I can't find their email addresses, just a form that won't let me submit because none of them are in my district.

It was just referred to the Suspense file, which means nothing really happened with it, it'll (probably) be heard again in Assembly Appropriations at a later date, yet to be determined.

It's hard to email many of them, as most don't publicly list their direct email addresses. Best bet in these cases is to call, fax, or (if there's time) mail a letter.

NRA-ILA sent out this form which supposedly e-mails all the related people in regards to AB-2382 (Pre-cursor firearm part background checks) and AB-2888 (Expanding GVROs)

Lie.

Give them some addresses that are in their districts.

If they are on a committee, they represent all of California; their actions on laws affect the whole state, not just their districts.

If they want to abrogate their responsibility to hear from concerned citizens who cannot vote for them, they deserve evasions to get your voice heard.

I'm not sure how that works but I'd be concerned that the emails might show NRA as the sender of your message which means it might get filtered straight into the trash bins of those who need to hear your message the most.

If somebody knows that's not the case then that might be a good option, otherwise I'm sticking with direct messages

New gut and amend - SB 221

This was done after the bill moved over to the Assembly. Will have to pass and go back to the Senate for consideration.

No firearm or ammunition sales at Cow Palace.

Apologies for the lack of updates. A lot has happened in the last week, so please see the main list in the OP for where everything stands. Some bills died, some got amended, and some got passed by a House...

Too many to list here.

Out of 43 gun-related bills this years, 20 have failed & 23 remain:
  • 2 Pro-2a
  • 8 Neutral/Undetermined
  • 13 Anti-2a

As of yet, no 2A-related bills have been passed this year.

For details, please review the OP.

Democrats lost their supermajority in the State Senate yesterday.

Sen. Josh Newman (D) was recalled (due to his voting for the gas tax), and is replaced by Ling Ling Chang (R).

The state Senate is now 25 Democrats, 14 Republicans, and 1 vacancy still remains (which will not be filled until November because no candidate won a majority vote yesterday).

Movement in the last couple weeks:

AB-1872 (Handgun roster exemptions for port/harbor police) - Passed by both Houses, now on Governor's desk.

AB-1192 (Retired reserve LE: magazine ban exemption) - Passed by both Houses, but back in Assembly for a concurrence vote before it goes to the Governor.

SB-1382 (Firearm storage in trunk-less vehicles) - Passed committee, awaiting Assembly floor vote.

SB-1346 (Bumpfire stocks) - Passed committee, awaiting Assembly floor vote.

AB-2382 (Background checks for barrels, magazines, unfinished frames/receivers, AR uppers, pistol slides) - Amended, now would take effect in 2023 (instead of 2020), and would exempt parts which can only be used in antique firearms.

SB-1100 (1-in-30 days & age 21 for all gun sales) - Amended, removed the "1 in 30 for all guns" portion.

2 more bills are now sitting on the Governor's desk, awaiting his action (or inaction), bringing the total to 3:

SB-1382 (Firearm storage in trunk-less vehicles) - Passed by Assembly Floor (80-0-0, 100%). Now at Governor's desk.

AB-1192 (Retired reserve LE: magazine ban exemption) - Passed by Senate Floor (34-0-5, 87%). Now at Governor's desk.


Around half a dozen other bills were passed by a committee last week, and referred to the next committee in the queue.

One particularly interesting revelation:

SJR-24 (A general legislative complaint about guns) - This (largely just symbolic) bill, which had a lot of momentum early-on, seems to have stalled in the Assembly Public Employees, Retirement, and Social Security Committee. According to Assembly rules, a bill must have a majority of committee members present and voting in order to advance it... at its last hearing, it got only 1 Yes vote (out of 7 members), and 5 of the 7 members chose not to vote on it at all. Because not enough members voted, it will have another vote in the same committee at a later time.

AB-1903 (Gun buyback gift cards can't be for gun or ammo stores) - Senate Appropriations just forwarded this bill to the Senate Floor without a vote, because it was determined that the financial cost to the state would be negligible. It's been ordered to 3rd reading, which means a floor vote could happen any time; if passed there, it goes to the Governor's desk. Back in April, it was passed by the Assembly with 66.2% support. It's a silly and pointless bill, but the spirit is anti-2a so we should still contact our district Senators ad urge them to vote NO.

Our first 2018 bill just got signed into law.

AB-1872 (Handgun roster exemptions for port/harbor police) - Signed by the Governor. Hardly surprising, since this bill flew through both Houses completely unopposed.

AB-2526 (Gun Violence Restraining Orders: Perjury) - Passed by committees, now on Senate Floor awaiting vote.

AB-2176 (Firearm temporary custody receipts & minors using tear gas) - Passed by committees, now on Senate Floor awaiting vote.

AB-3129 (Lifetime firearm ban for certain misdemeanor domestic violence) - Amended, now back in SAC. Now it would only add a lifetime gun ban specifically for a misdemeanor violation of willful infliction of corporal injury upon a spouse, cohabitant, or other specified person.

On Friday, the legislature adjourned for the 4-week Summer recess.

There will be no legislative activity again until August 6th, at which point the legislature will be in overdrive with less than a month to pass any of the remaining 22 bills to the Governor's desk.

I'll use this next month to comb through the bills to see if I've missed any actions on the bills in the list, or any new gut-and-amends that may have slipped under the radar.

See you guys back here in August!
