Late yesterday, California Governor Brown signed several gun control bills. The most prominent one was AB 144, banning the open carry of holstered (and unloaded) handguns. No more meetings at Starbucks. Alas, that wasn’t the only anti-gun bill he signed.
AB 809 orders the California Justice Department to retain records of long gun sales just as they currently do of handgun sales. So now not only your handguns but your long guns are in a registry.
SB 819 orders firearms dealers to charge a fee for running the background check on firearms purchases.
About the only bill he signed that doesn’t add more controls to gun owners is SB 610 which slightly streamlines the CCW permit process — limiting the time your local sheriff has to respond to a request for a permit.
The ‘press release’ for all these bills signed yesterday is here.
