AB 1695 – Firearms: Notice To Purchasers: False Reports Of Stolen Firearms
Rob Bonta (D-18)

CRPA’s Position: Oppose

Summary: Existing law requires each sheriff or police chief executive to submit descriptions of serialized property, or nonserialized property that has been uniquely inscribed, which has been reported stolen, lost, or found directly into the appropriate Department of Justice automated property system for firearms, stolen bicycles, stolen vehicles, or other property. Existing law requires that information about a firearm entered into the automated system for firearms remain in the system until the reported firearm has been found. Existing law requires the Department of Justice to implement an electronic system to receive comprehensive tracing information from each local law enforcement agency and to forward the information to the National Tracing Center. This bill would make it a misdemeanor to report to a local law enforcement agency that a firearm has been lost or stolen, knowing that report to be false. The bill would also make it a misdemeanor for a person convicted of violating this provision to own a firearm within 10 years of the conviction. The bill would define “firearm” for these purposes to include the frame or receiver of the weapon, and to include a rocket, rocket propelled projectile launcher, or similar device containing an explosive or incendiary material. By creating new crimes, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.
