    With the panic over pending Federal anti-gun legislation, state anti-gun legislation is often overlooked until it is too late.

    So, here is a heads up on newly submitted CA anti-gun legislation.

    AB48. Skinner Redefines the term "large capacity magazine".

    Exisiting law, allows people to legally acquire "magazine rebuild kits". Which, people can legally use to repair/replace legally owned large capacity magazines or keep as parts for use outside of CA or to be used to make a permanent 10 round magazine.

    Proposed legislation would revise the definition of “large-capacity magazine” to mean any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, including a readily restorable, as defined, disassembled large-capacity magazine, and an oversize magazine body that appears to hold in excess of 10 rounds.

    Bottom line:
    *Makes the importation/manufacture/selling of "magazine rebuild kits" illegal.

    Proposed Penal Code 16740
    (a)As used in this part, “large-capacity magazine” means any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, including, but not limited to, a readily restorable disassembled large-capacity magazine and an oversize magazine body that appears to hold in excess of 10 rounds. A magazine body is not a large-capacity magazine if it is only of sufficient size to accommodate no more than 10 rounds of ammunition and the internal working parts of the magazine, including the follower and spring.
    (b) As used in this section, “readily restorable” means magazine parts under the custody and control of an individual or individuals that can be assembled into a complete magazine.

    SB47. Yee. "bullet button" ban

    Exisiting law, allows a maglock + 10 round or less magazine installed onto a firearm to make it equate to a firearm that operates using a fixed magazine, that can be removed by using a tool (such as the tip of a bullet).

    Proposed legislation would redefine what consitutes a fixed magazine.

    This legislation failed to pass earlier this year and is being "improved" and resubmitted for next year's session.

    Bottom line:
    *Bans "bullet button" style magazine locks.

    SB53. DeLeon Creates the requirement to obtain a state issued permit in order to purchase ammunition.

    Exisiting law, does not require a permit to purchase ammunition.

    Proposed legislation would require a non-prohibited person to acquire and maintain a permit to purchase ammunition in order to purchase ammo. The applicant for permit will go through a background check (live scan/fingerprinted + application fee). Once approved the permit is only valid for one year (annual renewal fee). When ammo is acquired via face-to-face from a vendor, need to pay a transfer fee.

    Bottom line:
    *Need a permit to acquire ammunition from licensed vendors.
    *Bans mail order/online ammo sales.
    *Creates fee system (application, renewal, transfer)
