California: Precursor Parts and DROS Increase Bill Pass Assembly

California: Precursor Parts and DROS Increase Bill Pass Assembly

On Tuesday, May 28, AB 879 and AB 1669 passed the Assembly and will be transmitted to the Senate for further consideration.

Next week, policy committees will resume work with the Senate Public Safety Committee considering Assembly Joint Resolution 4 and 5.  Use the take action button below to contact members of the Senate Public Safety Committee to urge their opposition to AJR 4 and AJR 5. 

Assembly Bill 879, sponsored by Assembly Member Mike Gipson (D-64), would require precursor firearms parts to be sold/transferred through a licensed precursor parts dealer in a similar process to the new laws regarding ammunition purchases. It would further create a registry of these parts and a new crime for transfer of precursor parts without the involvement of a licensed precursor parts dealer to anyone under 21 years of age or prohibited from owning firearms. Precursor parts include items such as unfinished frames and receivers.

Assembly Bill 1669, sponsored by Assembly Member Rob Bonta (D-18), would raise the DROS fees paid by consumers when purchasing firearms. The DROS account at times has generated a massive surplus at times, so much so that tens of millions of dollars have been utilized to fund other DOJ programs including a $24 million dollar loan to the Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS) just a few short years ago. This legislation appears nothing more than an effort to put more cost constraints on gun owners to foot the bill for the massive cost pressures the legislature has put on DOJ in the recent years including ammunition background checks and long gun registration to name a few.    

 

June 4 - Senate Public Safety Hearing:   

Assembly Joint Resolution 4, sponsored by Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-4) would encourage Congress to adopt the Background Checks Act of 2019. 

Assembly Joint Resolution 5 sponsored by Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-59) would urge the federal government to adopt universal firearm laws using California as an example. California is far from the example when it comes to firearm laws. Lawful gun owners must navigate a maze of gun laws that are ever changing. Each year the legislature considers numerous proposals that continue to place additional restrictions and costs on lawful gun owners while ignoring the fact that criminals are already ignoring the hundreds of laws on the books.
