CRPA Information Bulletin: 2019 Legislation on Friday’s at Five

January 4, 2019

2019 Legislation mentioned on CRPATV Friday’s at Five:

AB 18, as introduced, Levine. Firearms: excise tax.

Existing law creates the California Violence Intervention and Prevention Grant Program (CalVIP) within the Board of State and Community Corrections to distribute grants to cities and community-based organizations to fund violence intervention and prevention activities.

The Sales and Use Tax Law imposes a sales and use tax on the gross receipts from the sale in this state of, and the storage, use, or other consumption in this state of, tangible personal property based on a specified percentage of the gross receipts from the sale of, or the sales price of, that property.

This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that imposes an excise tax on the sales of handguns and semiautomatic rifles and would require the revenue collected from that tax to be used to fund grants through the CalVIP program.

AB 61, as introduced, Ting. Gun violence restraining orders.

This bill would similarly authorize, an employer, a coworker, or an employee of a secondary or postsecondary school that the person has attended in the last 6 months to file a petition for an ex parte, one-year, or renewed gun violence restraining order.

SB 55, Jackson. Firearms: prohibited persons.

This bill would add to the list of misdemeanors, the conviction for which is subject to those prohibitions, misdemeanor offenses of violating the 10-year prohibition on possessing a firearm specified above.

The bill would also apply the above 10-year prohibition to a person who has been convicted of 2 or more specified misdemeanors, or 2 or more convictions of a single specified misdemeanor, in a 3-year period involving alcohol intoxication or possession of certain controlled substances for sale and would make a violation punishable as an infraction. The bill would impose a new 10-year prohibition to a person who commits another of those misdemeanors during the initial 10-year prohibition period and would make a violation punishable as an infraction. The bill would also make it an infraction for a person prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm pursuant to these provisions to own, possess, or have under their custody or control, any ammunition or reloaded ammunition.
