AB 225 – Gun Violence Restraining Orders: Offenses
Melissa Melendez (R-67)

CRPA’s Position: Support

Summary: Existing law makes it a misdemeanor to file a petition for an ex parte gun violence restraining order or a gun violence restraining order issued after notice and a hearing knowing the information in the petition to be false or with the intent to harass. This bill would instead provide that it is perjury, a felony punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for 2, 3, or 4 years, to file a petition for one of those gun violence restraining orders knowing the information in the petition to be false. By increasing the penalty for existing crimes, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.
