Gun control bill AB-1511, which limits loaning of firearms to immediate family members, was passed today out of the Assembly’s “Public Safety” Committee. Criminals everywhere are rolling on floor laughing (ROFL) at the new restrictions on law-abiding citizens who, if this enacted, will no longer be able to lend firearms to defenseless female friends at risk of rape or domestic violence, or to friends and extended family for training purposes.
I submitted formal opposition to the Committee, along with several informal emails, describing the adverse effect on trust-based firearm legacy (training) planning by individual families, and also on boy scout councils such as the one that retained me to draft a corporate grantor gun trust for better management and control of its firearms, yet the Committee passed it 5-2.
27880. Section 27545 does not apply to the loan of a firearm between persons who are personally known to each other, if all of the following requirements are satisfied:(a) The loan is to a spouse, registered domestic partner, or any of the following relations, whether by consanguinity, adoption, or steprelation:(1) Parent.(2) Child.(3) Sibling.(4) Grandparent.(5) Grandchild.(a) (b) The loan is infrequent, as defined in Section 16730.(b) (c) The loan is for any lawful purpose.(c) (d) The loan does not exceed 30 days in duration.(d) (e) Until January 1, 2015, if the firearm is a handgun, the individual being loaned the firearm shall have a valid handgun safety certificate. Commencing January 1, 2015, for any firearm, the individual being loaned the firearm shall have a valid firearm safety certificate, except that in the case of a handgun, an unexpired handgun safety certificate may be used.(f) If the firearm being loaned is a handgun, the handgun is registered to the person making the loan pursuant to Section 11106.SEC. 2. No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
