Breaking: California Gov. Signs (and Vetoes) Gun Control Bills

We told you yesterday about how the California legislature passed a compilation of gun bills known as “gunpocalypse.”

With Governor Jerry Brown leaving on vacation tomorrow, had he not acted on these bills, his Lieutenant Governor, a rabidly anti-gun Democrat, would have been able to sign all of them in his absence as Acting-Governor.

Here’s how the chips fell…

AB 1135 – “Assault Weapons” Ban

AB 1511 – Criminalizes Loaning Firearms

AB 1695 – Expansion of Prohibitions and Threatening Letters from DOJ to Gun Owners

SB 880 – Expands “Assault Weapons” Ban to Include “Bullet Button” Semi-Auto Rifles, Pistols

SB 1235 by Senator Kevin De León (D-Los Angeles) – Ammunition

SB 1446 – Ban on ALL Magazines that were Designed to Hold More than 10 Rounds

Governor Brown vetoed the following bills:

AB 1673 – Expands Definition of “Firearm” to Include Non-Firearm Materials

AB 1674 – Expands the 30-day purchase limit to all firearms; deletes the “private party” exemption

AB 2607 – Expanding Gun Violence Restraining Orders

SB 894 – Mandatory Law Enforcement Reports for Lost or Stolen Firearms
