The California Legislature is attempting to pass further restrictions on Second Amendment rights, NRA-ILA reports. Here’s a rundown: Senate Bill 1221, introduced by state Senator Ted Lieu (D-28), would ban hunting bears and bobcats with dogs. NRA-ILA says SB 1221 is supported by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) — a radical group that supports banning all hunting with or without dogs.
Senate Bill 1315, introduced by anti-gun extremist state Senator Kevin de León (D-22), would allow the County of Los Angeles and any city within that county, to regulate and ban the sale of any BB “device,” toy gun, replica of a firearm, or similar device. NRA-ILA says the bill is a step toward destroying California’s firearms-preemption law, which keeps law-abiding gun owners from running afoul of local restrictions when they pass from one municipality to another.
Senate Bill 1366, introduced by state Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-7), would require every person to report the theft or loss of a firearm he or she owns or possesses to a local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred within 48 hours of the time he or she knew or reasonably should have known that the firearm had been stolen or lost. NRA-ILA says law-abiding gun owners should not be made a victim twice.
Assembly Bill 2333, introduced by Assembly Member Jose Solorio (D-69), would expand the crime of bringing a BB gun onto school grounds, to include non-metallic projectiles, and would impose an unnecessary and potentially severe criminal liability on everyday toys (not just BB guns and pellet guns) with severe penalties. NRA-ILA says that under this bill, parents who inadvertently have toy guns in their cars when picking up children from schools can end up facing felony charges and up to a year in jail.
