Newsom Signs Slew of Anti-2A Bills

Governor Newsom Signed MORE Anti-Gun Bills into Law!

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a plethora of anti-gun legislation into law, making it even more difficult for citizens to lawfully own and possess firearms in the state.

As informed Second Amendment supporters, we know that the biggest problem with the Governor’s actions is that they will do nothing to stop criminal activity that plagues the state and many local communities.

We need your help to battle California’s horrible policies that infringe on our rights!

  • AB-12will change the time period of a gun violence restraining order from one year to up to five years and can only be terminated earlier by the court.
  • AB-61will expand the types of individuals who can file gun violence restraining orders to include employers, coworkers, and schoolteachers. This will only be based on third party allegations and not on any actual criminal activity or due process.
  • AB-879will require precursor firearm parts to be sold/transferred only through a licensed dealer similar to the ammunition laws that went into effect under Proposition 63. It will further create a registry of parts and a new crime for the transfer of parts without the licensed dealer to anyone under 21 years of age or to prohibited persons.
  • AB-893will prohibit the sale or transfer of guns at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The attacks on gun shows across the state are already being fought in the courts and the state politicians are trying to thwart those efforts because they know discriminating against lawful gun owners is unconstitutional.
  • AB-1254will prohibit the ability to hunt, trap, or otherwise take a bobcat except in specified circumstances.
  • AB-1297will remove the maximum fee that a local jurisdiction could charge for a CCW permit, thus making it the “wild west” of fees that would be charged by CCW-hating politicians and administrators.
  • AB-1669will raise fees paid by consumers when purchasing a firearm.
  • SB-61will amend California’s one handgun per month law to apply to handguns and centerfire semi-auto rifles with limited exceptions.
  • SB-172will expand California’s existing storage laws to include a harsh 10-year ban on firearm ownership for a violation.

CRPA will continue to fight these battles in the courts and we need your support! We are currently fighting the ammunition laws (Rhode v. Becerra), right to gather at a gun show and protection of the gun culture (B & L Productions v. 22nd District Agricultural Association), and we brought you “Freedom Week” (Duncan v. Becerra) and we continue to fight on appeal.

We are also always looking for named plaintiffs for additional lawsuits. If you are willing to be a named plaintiff in an upcoming legal battle to defend the Second Amendment, please let us know



  • I tried to send an email to but I got back a permanent send error. The link doesn’t work.

    I could be interested in helping as a plaintiff.


    I don’t have a ready personal case to fight for, but I’m very interested in the law and defending the Right to Bear Arms. I’m interested in Pro-Gun politics. I could be interested in supporting a case, if I can help.

  • Recall Newsome and as many Dems in legislature as possible. Join the La Jolla group in this endeavor. If every legal gun owner signs the petition it will be a done deal. Past time to send a message to Dems. Let’s do this.

  • Governor Newsom has only one thing in mind for the long run – NO GUNS AT ALL ALLOWED IN CALIFORNIA! I would not be surprised to see him come up with this shortly. All the anti-2A people will cheer him on for this to happen. Most of his actions so far as Governor have made me sick. I challenge all the CRPA members and their gun owning friends to literally flood his office with letters, phone calls, emails, etc., telling him exactly how we feel about all the useless laws he is putting his name to. LOSE THE FIGHT, LOSE YOUR GUNS!!!

  • Hello, My name is Keith, I have been writing letter after letter and it seems like it is doing nothing
    but probably “Putting me on a Red Flag List”Now ! for bothering politicians. I would like to donate more
    money but I cant. I would have called about this new batch of Bills, But my power was out due to Another B.S
    PG&E Fire Danger Blackout and I had no Internet. Yes I could have been paying more attention, but everyone
    has a life also. But I defiantly would have called before. In fact I called anyway. I was one of those people who said,
    ” Nahh they wont take away guns”. I didn’t have one then. I bought my first gun when my Neighbor decided to start
    Illegally growing Pot. I knew the The Criminal Traffic would soon come to our neighborhood, and it DID come.
    Anyway Im sorry I can’t do more, wish I could. Thanks Keith
    P.S. Yes now they have “Legal” Grow next door we can smell it!
