SB 1315

April 2, 2012

BB Devices; Imitation Firearms: Regulation: County Of Los Angeles
de Leon, D-Los Angeles

Purpose Of Legislation: Existing law provides that the Legislature occupies the whole field of regulation of the manufacture, sale, or possession of imitation firearms, as defined, and that those provisions shall preempt and be exclusive of all regulations relating to the manufacture, sale, or possession of imitation firearms, including regulations governing the manufacture, sale, or possession of BB devices and air rifles, as specified. Existing law defines “imitation firearm” to include a “BB device” and defines a “BB device,” for specified purposes, to include any spot marker gun. This bill would provide an exception to those provisions by authorizing the County of Los Angeles, or any city within the County of Los Angeles, to enact and enforce an ordinance or resolution regulating the manufacture, sale, possession, or use of a spot marker gun that expels a projectile larger than 16mm.
