The California senate has passed and pushed some laws towards assembly that will do a lot of things if they make it through the entire process. Here is probably the simpliest break down: http://www.latimes.com/la-pol-sac-e...e-gun-control-propo-1463685378-htmlstory.html 1. Bullet buttons are proposed to be banned. This is how most guns with detachable magazines are sold in California. They require a small object to press a recessed button instead of a normal magazine release button you can press with your finger. However it appears to also target all semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines as well. This means things allowed in the expired federal AWB would also be banned, like M1As, mini-14s, and all similar rifles without pistol grips that were not targeted previously. 2. There is also legislation requiring a background check for ammunition, and requiring a state license to sell it. This could result in a cost to process a background check at the purchase of ammunition, current CA DROS checks for example cost $35 per gun purchase. While a gun is a big purchase ammunition is often not. This could place a prohibitive cost on casual shooting, reducing new gun owners. If you have to pay a decent sum in addition to the ammunition, small purchases no longer are cost effective, and new casual shooters are unlikely to shell out for large ammunition purchases. Imagine paying for a background check to pick up some .22lr In addition to making internet sales illegal since they won't do a background check or have a CA license, which really sucks if you have calibers not frequently stocked at local stores and primarily available online. Nevermind the loss of the ability to find good deals. 3. A bill also banning previously grandfathered magazines possessed prior to 2000 the year in which magazines over 10 rounds were banned from being purchased or transferred after that date. They grandfathered them only to take them later. 4. "Ghost gun" bill now removes the ability to make your own firearm, an American right going back to the founding of the nation, unless you file paperwork and register the gun you have not even made yet. Keep in mind lowers for semi auto rifles would be illegal to make anyways under the bill banning bullet buttons and all semi auto rifles. This targets everything. 3d printer? Mill? You can have whatever valuable or expensive tools you want and they become a lot less fun. 5. Requirement to report lost or stolen guns in 5 days. Seems reasonable? Actually it is how they charge you with a crime if they show up to take your guns and you claim they were lost in a "boating accident" as was a popular saying on here. If you cannot account for them, guilty, under arrest, and probable cause for a warrant to search for them. Keep in mind reporting something lost or stolen that is not lost or stolen is also a crime, lying to police and filing a false police report. It is a law that on the surface doesn't seem as bad as it is. But it is a tool used for current and future gun control to punish if you resist disarmament by not having or turning guns over for confiscation when required. 6.Loaning guns is also being removed as a legal option. While not something I see done much, and already legally limited to like 90 days or something, it does have an impact. Want to loan a girlfriend a gun? Maybe keep one at her place so she has protection? Perhaps when someone potentially dangerous has started harassing them? That won't be okay. 7. Creation of tax payer funded Anti-Gun University think tank to come up with reports on how bad guns are and how to reduce them in society. Their whole purpose from the start to study guns and gun laws from an Anti gun point of view and come up with solutions to the 'problem'.
