Arrow 2018 CA Legislation Quick-Reference & Statuses (Updated 4/18)

Click here to subscribe to updates for this thread

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" (changed either slightly or entirely) before 9/15.
  • For a bill to become law, it must be passed by both legislative Houses: the 40-member Senate (26 Democrats, 13 Republicans, 1 vacancy) and the 80-member Assembly (52 Democrats, 25 Republicans, 3 vacancies).
  • 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.
  • Typically, firearm-related bills are 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 an additional committee.
  • Senate Committees: The 7-member Public Safety Committee "SPSC" (5 Democrats, 2 Republicans), and the 7-member Appropriations Committee "SAC" (5 Democrats, 2 Republicans).
  • 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 5/26, it goes to a House floor vote where it must be passed by 6/2.
  • "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 9/1, after which that House floor must pass the bill by 9/15.
  • If the second House amended the bill at all, then it must have a concurrence vote in the House of origin, also by 9/15.
  • Passed bills are sent to the governor, who has until 10/15 to issue a veto. If not vetoed, the bill becomes law as of the Governor's signing or 10/16 (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, as individuals, do to help these bills pass or fail? Scroll to post #8 for information.

It is unwise to discuss shortcomings or potential loopholes in anti-2a bills BEFORE 10/16. It is well-known that the legislature (and/or their staff) read these forums to see what we are saying about their bills. Don't give them ideas.

There are 42 gun-related bills so far.

28 active, 0 passed/signed, 8 inactive, 6 dead.

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.

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 below guide will hopefully help clear up some confusion about this.


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 while the bill is in Policy Committee.

After a bill is introduced, it is assigned to one or more "Policy Committees", often the Public Safety Committee or the Appropriations Committee. In the case of Firearm bills, it is usually both. Before the House floor can hold a vote, the bill must be passed by all committees to which it has been assigned, so NOW is the time to contact the committee members.

Policy Committee hearing 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 when and where the next 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, of course, contact the Committee members directly.

If the bill is in Senate committee, you can find the 7 members of the Appropriations committee here, and the 7 members of the Public Safety Committee here.

If the bill is in Assembly committee, you can find the 17 members of the Appropriations committee here, and the 7 members of the Public Safety Committee here.

It is perhaps worth learning about each of the Committee members before contacting them, as some of them may simply be not worth the effort. Senator Scott Wiener, for example, resides on both Senate committees, and is a complete waste of time to contact - he has already voted by the time he's finished reading the title of the bill. Time is best spent focusing on members who might be receptive to a good argument.

Committees can amend bills as well, so feel free to propose any ideas for amendments that you may have.


Voicing your support/concern to the origin House floor.

If the bill is passed by all of the committees it was assigned to, then NOW is the time to contact your district's Senator (if the bill is in the Senate) or Assembly member (if the bill is in the Assembly), if you haven't already. Time is of the essence here - by the time a bill passes committee, a floor vote could happen as early as later in the same afternoon. If you do not know who your local Senator and Assembly member are, you can quickly find them here: http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/. Tell them why you want them to vote one way or the other.


Voicing your support/concern to the second House policy committees & floor.

If the bill passed the first House, then remember that it still needs to go through the whole process again in the second House, so keep contacting the appropriate House members.

If the second House amends the bill at all, and then passes it, then it must go back to the first House again, for a Concurrence vote - prior to which, you can contact the first houses's member, yet again, to voice your support/concern about the bill and/or its amendments.


Voicing your support/concern to the Governor.

If both Houses pass the bill, then it heads to the Governor's desk where he has until 10/15 to either sign it, veto it, or let it go into law without his signature. Now is the time to contact the Governor about the bill. His contact information can be found here.


A final note.

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. Before you submit your letter or place your call to a Democratic representative, first ask yourself if you would change anything you say if they were a Republican. If the answer is "Yes", then you should revise your message.

Nobody likes to be yelled at, belittled, insulted, or harassed. YOU wouldn't be receptive to that, and neither will they. Courtesy goes a long way.


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 10/15, whichever happens first. 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.

Don't say anything on these forums that you wouldn't say in an email to the bills' authors, because that's basically what these forums are - "open letters to the legislature".

Update to the CA Legislature Makeup

As of today, the state Senate is now composed of 26 Democrats, 13 Republicans, and 1 vacancy.
Democrat Senator Tony Mendoza just resigned, amid a sexual harassment scandal and a bipartisan effort to eject him from the Senate.

The Assembly, as of the end of last year, is composed of 52 Democrats, 25 Republicans, and 3 vacancies.
1 of those vacancies was for health reasons, the other 2 were sexual harassment scandals - all Democrats.

Because of these vacancies, neither House currently holds a Democrat "supermajority" (two-thirds voting power). Veto overrides and certain types of bills require a 2/3 vote in both Houses for passage.

A special election for some of the vacant positions is scheduled for June; Fortunately, some of the bills in question must be passed by their House of origin prior to then.

Regarding the reported upcoming Gut-and-Amend bill to expand the AW ban:

On Feb 28th, there was a widely distributed news report that some new, previously unknown bills were proposed. In the time since, most of them have appeared on the legislature's website, except for a bill to expand the definition of Assault Weapons again, to ban detachable magazines in all semiauto rifles and open another registration period for those affected.

In order for a bill to be gutted and amended in the bill's House of origin, it must happen before 6/2. Alternatively, all the way up to 9/1, a bill that has already been passed by the House of origin may be gutted-and-amended in the second House, but then it would also require a concurrence vote in the House of origin.

It's possible 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) either have a low chance of passing, or aren't considered important.

It's also possible that the Governor informed the Legislature that he would not sign such a bill, causing the idea to be abandoned. It's impossible to know exactly what's happening behind the scenes.

AB-1903 (Gun buyback gift cards can't be for gun or ammo stores) - Passed by Assembly (51-20, 63%), now on to the Senate.

AB-1968 (Expanded 'mental health' gun bans) - This bill would put a lifetime gun ban on anyone who is 5150'd twice in a year. It was just amended, now it allows one to petition to re-instate gun rights every 5 years, & removed the minimum 6 month wait to file the petition.

SB-1100 (1-in-30 days & age 21 for all gun sales) - Perhaps the worst bill we have this year. Senate Public Safety hearing set for Apr 17 @ 8:30 am in John L. Burton Hearing Room. Please attend and voice your concerns there, if you can. Also email or call the committee members!

SB-1346 (Bumpfire stocks) - Committee hearing postponed to 4/24. Thus far, the legislature hasn't shown much enthusiasm for this bill.

AB-1932 (Requires DOJ to furnish CCW background checks within 60 days) - Officially dead now (previously just inactive). The author kept cancelling the committee hearings and never let this bill be heard. This is why we need to contact the authors of these good bills to let them know they have our support.

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.

I give both of those bills a very slim chance of success, though. They both expand on other laws that were JUST passed and haven't even had a chance to take effect yet. Brown tends to veto bills that jump the gun like that. But of course, that's speculation on my part.

In other news, Melendez made a new Shall Issue CCW bill last month, that slipped under my radar until now. I'll post an update on that one tomorrow. It's similar to the one she wrote last year.

AB-3026 (Shall Issue CCW, & permits for non-residents) - This one slipped under the Radar. Melendez introduced this new pro-CCW bill last month.

SB-1099 (Prohibits all weapons at any public assembly) - Committee hearing set for April 24th. We need to get this bill's Republican author to get rid of this bill. It's horrible, I have no idea what he was thinking with this one. I've already written to him (with no response), I suggest everyone else do the same.

AB-2213 (Prop 63 Ammo sales, private armed security exemption) - Passed by APSC, now on the Assembly floor. Requires 55% vote for passage.


Now for the REALLY bad news.

AB-2382 (Background checks for barrels, magazines, unfinished frames/receivers, AR uppers, pistol slides) - Bill was gutted and amended for the second time. It's much, much worse this time. Requires DOJ background checks on all barrels, magazines, unfinished receivers/frames, AR upper receivers, and pistol slides. It's still in Committee, everyone needs to speak their mind to the committee members!

SJR-24 (A general legislative complaint about guns) - Passed by SPSC (5-2), now in Sen Public Employment and Retirement Committee, hearing set for 4/23.

SB-1185 (Agency firearm accounting) - Committee hearing canceled by the author. The legislature hasn't seemed very excited about this bill, or last's year's version of it (sb-22) that died.

SB-1092 (Legalize suppressor possession, and their use on guns measuring 16"+ in overall length.) - Failed in committee, with reconsideration granted. The vote was 2-2, with 3 voters abstaining. Which is very similar to last year's version of this bill, which was voted on 3-2, with 2 voters abstaining. Bradford (D) voted in support of last year's version, but abstained from voting on this one. This bill has been, for the last 2 years, the least opposed pro-2a bill in the legislature. All we need to do is get the abstaining voters to vote in support of this bill, and we could actually win. Unfortunately, for this year, the bill is now inactive and unlikely to be resurrected, but we should still contact the committee members anyways to urge their reconsideration before the 5/26 deadline.

AB-2176 (Firearm temporary custody receipts & minors using tear gas) - Passed by Assembly, unopposed (68-0). Now on to Senate.

SJR-24 (A general legislative complaint about guns) - Amended slightly. Now, instead of calling on Calpers to divest all of its firearms-related holdings, it calls on Calpers to "engage with companies in which it is invested that produce or sell firearms to determine a reasonable method for those companies to withdraw from the production and sale of firearms, or to produce a plan to divest from those companies." This is still just a silly "hey look at us, we're doing something" bill.

AB-2213 (Prop 63 Ammo sales, private armed security exemption) - Urgency clause added (bill would take effect immediately upon passage), as a result of that it now requires 2/3 vote for passage. Assembly floor vote is imminent.

SB-459 (Requires DOJ inspections of FFLs every 3 years) - This bill was passed by the Senate back in January, just finally got committee assignment in Assembly (APSC).

4 bills have Assembly Public Safety Committee hearings scheduled for next Tuesday, in the same Capital building room at the same time. Please attend the hearing if you can, or at least write/call the committee members to voice your concern or support for the following bills:

AB-2382 (Background checks for barrels, magazines, unfinished frames/receivers, AR uppers, pistol slides) - Still in APSC, hearing rescheduled for Apr 24 @ 9:00 am in State Capitol, Room 126.

AB-2888 (Expands who can request a GVRO) - In APSC, hearing set for Apr 24 @ 9:00 am in State Capitol, Room 126.

AB-3064 (Felon in possession of firearm) - In APSC, hearing set for Apr 24 @ 9:00 am in State Capitol, Room 126.

AB-3129 (Lifetime firearm ban for certain misdemeanor domestic violence) - In APSC, hearing set for Apr 24 @ 9:00 am in State Capitol, Room 126.



Additionally, these two things happened yesterday:

SB-1100 (1-in-30 days & age 21 for all gun sales) - Passed by SPSC (5-2), in a party-line vote, of course. Now in SAC.

AB-2860 (Repeals the Safe Handgun Roster laws) - Failed in APSC (1-4). Lackey (R) and Quirk (D) did not vote. The bill is probably dead, I'm not sure if it can be reconsidered in committee before the 5/26 deadline.

Also, I just noticed that these Pro-2a bills were failed in committee recently, but granted reconsideration:

AB-2318 (CCW at churches on school grounds)

AB-2733 (Removes handgun microstamping requirement)

AB-3026 (Shall Issue CCW, & permits for non-residents)



Only 4 pro-2a bills remain.
