California Legislators crafted a bunch of bills and had Jerry Brown sign them into law.

AB 1135, AB 1511, AB 1695, SB 880, SB 1235, SB 1446

Those of us in the gun rights community term the collection gunpocalypse or gunmageddon.

I have started to compile a list with the names of the authors and the bill identifiers.

Senate and Assembly by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de LeŚn

lawmakers send 13 gun control bills to Jerry Brown

AB-857/1673, Gipson which would change the definition of a firearm under California law to include, "an unfinished frame or receiver that can be readily converted to the functional condition of a finished frame or receiver." Such raw components would have to be regulated in the state just like other guns including having a serial number registered with the Department of Justice, transferred through a licensed dealer, and fall under DROS fee schedules and waiting periods for first-time buyers.

AB-1135/SB 880 SIGNED aims to revise the definition of "assault weapon" to mean any semiautomatic centerfire rifle, or a semiautomatic pistol that does not have a fixed magazine but has any one of those specified attributes. As such, it goes after the long misunderstood "bullet button" by mandating guns with a fixed magazine would have to be disassembled to remove the magazine.

AB-1511 SIGNED Hall Criminalizes loaning of firearms between personally known, law-abiding adults, including sportsmen, family members and competitors.

AB 1664, Marc Levine and Phil Ting with the strong endorsement of Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris, would effectively close what the lawmakers term the "bullet button loophole" by banning the devices which require a tool to remove an otherwise fixed magazine from a semi-automatic rifle and require guns already fitted with such buttons since 2001 to register them as "assault weapons" under California law.

AB 1674 Santiago would prohibit more than one sale of any firearm to an individual inside a 30-day period. While the waiting period is currently in effect for handguns bought through a dealer only, the new bill includes language that would broaden its application to include all guns, including those sold through private transactions.

AB1695 SIGNED Bonta originally mandated the Attorney General's office to begin sending out literature to new gun buyers in the state informing them of safe storage and gun trafficking laws and was amended in committee last week to strengthen false reports of stolen firearms.

AB 2607 Ting would allow an employer, a coworker, a mental health worker who has seen a person as a patient in the prior six months, or an employee of a secondary or post-secondary school that the person has attended in the last six months, to petition the court for a GVRO. Under current law, only an immediate family member or a law enforcement officer may do so.

SB 894 Jackson would make it a crime to not report the theft or loss of a firearm within five days.

SB 1407 is a reboot of De Leon's infamous ghost gun legislation of 2014 that was vetoed by Gov. Brown. It would require a California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms background check and authorization before assembling a firearm in the home of a state resident, which in turn would have to have a serial number.

SB 1235 SIGNED de Leon

SB 1446 SIGNED Hancock would revise the state's definition of a high capacity magazine to forbid those capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, including grandfathered magazines. SB 1446, Hancock. Firearms: magazine capacity.

Frm another source, so duplication

SB 880 (Hall) and AB 1135 (Levine): Bans common and constitutionally protected firearms that have magazine locking devices.
SB 1235 (de Leon): Now competes with Gavin NewsomŇs Safety for All Act/Ammo Ban.
SB 1446 (Hancock): Confiscation of lawfully acquired, standard capacity ammunition feeding devices.
AB 1511 (Santiago): Bans the loaning of firearms.
AB 1695 (Bonta): Makes some non-violent misdemeanors punishable by prohibitions on owning firearms.

The Firearms Policy Coalition ( FPC ) has filed a lawsuit and some group has stqarted collecting signatures to put on the ballot those laws to see if the voters want to vote those laws out of existence. They need 365,000 signatures by the end of September to put the measure on the ballot.
