SB 1367

April 2, 2012

Firearms: Waiting Period: Exemption
La Malfa, R-Butte

Purpose Of Legislation: Existing law prohibits a dealer from delivering a firearm to a person within 10-days of an application to purchase, within 10 days of the submission to the Department of Justice of any correction to the application, or within 10-days of the submission to the department of a firearm purchaser fee, whichever is later. Existing law provides that this 10-day waiting period does not apply to the sale, delivery, or transfer of firearms to a full-time paid peace officer who is authorized to carry firearms while in the performance of duties, or to a dealer who delivers a firearm, other than a handgun, at an auction or similar event, among other exceptions. Existing law generally prohibits the carrying of concealed firearms without a license. Existing law permits a sheriff or head of a municipal police department to issue a license to a person who submits an application to carry a concealed firearm upon proof that the applicant is of a good moral character, that good cause exists for the issuance of the license, and certain residency requirements are met. This bill would provide that the 10-day waiting period does not apply to the sale, delivery, or transfer of firearms to any person who is authorized to carry a weapon in a concealed manner pursuant to the above provisions.
