Amendments to Calif. “Ghost Gun” Bill Would Enact “Staggering” New Firearms Parts Regulations

Firearms Policy Coalition

SACRAMENTO, CA (April 6, 2018) — Firearms Policy Coalition today announced that it had acquired new “mock-up” language for California Assembly Bill 2382 (AB 2382), currently a bill authored by Asm. Mike Gipson (D – Carson) to expand the definition of “firearm” and “receiver,” that would enact a radical and far-reaching new regulatory scheme by treating non-firearm parts, components, and even some raw materials in a virtually-identical manner as Gavin Newsom’s Proposition 63 and Senator Kevin de Leon’s SB 1235 (2016) did with ammunition. FPC called the broad reach and implications of the disturbing amendments “staggering.”  

“The State of California’s non-stop barrage of attacks on gun owners and our rights appears to have no end in sight,” said FPC Legislative Advocate and Spokesperson Craig DeLuz. “It is deeply troubling that our state government sees law-abiding residents as the enemy. One thing is for certain, if the Legislature and the Department of Justice continue to pass and enforce more and more oppressive laws, they will get the exact opposite of what they say they want.”

The proposed bill text, likely to be adopted soon, would create an entirely new class of highly-regulated items called “firearm precursor parts” that would include barrels, ammunition feeding devices (including magazines for semi-automatic firearms and “speed loaders” for revolvers), “unfinished receivers,” molded or shaped polymer frames or receivers, metallic castings, metallic forgings, receiver “flats” such as Kalashnikov style weapon systems, Browning-style receiver side plates, Kalashnikov style receiver “channels”, finished upper receivers for AR-15 and AR-10 style firearms, unfinished handgun frames, finished slides that are used to enclose handgun barrels, and trigger pack or fire control groups for Heckler and Koch or FN FAL style firearms.

Purchasing regulated gun parts would generally require face-to-face transactions and background checks, subject these items to new age restrictions, mandate DOJ licenses for dealers to sell “firearm precursor parts” and new storage and handling requirements for sellers. As with ammunition, online purchases and importation from other states would generally be prohibited.

To help combat this outrageous bill FPC has established Take Action Grassroots Tools at StopAB2382.com, where gun owners can learn more about and weigh in on the bill by electronically sending a letter to legislators. AB 2382 is currently scheduled to be heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, April 17th.

FPC noted that their legislative team is already working on over three dozen bills in the Golden State alone this year. With the likely changes to AB 2382, they have dubbed this year’s firearms-related legislative package “Gunpocalypse 2”.

“Eventually, law-abiding people will be forced into making hard choices to escape the oppression, including non-compliance, or leaving and taking their tax dollars and businesses with them. Sadly, the California government really does hate civil rights and its own people,” concluded DeLuz.

Firearms Policy Coalition (www.firearmspolicy.org) is a 501(c)4 grassroots nonprofit organization. FPC’s mission is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, especially the fundamental, individual Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

    So you order in another state, piece of cake. Better yet, move out of this shit hole state. Who in their right mind would want to live there anyway?

    • Enemy of the State says:

      Exactly
      And stop funding that state
      And those that live there and don’t agree with this
      Stop paying these fuks to subjugate you and your rights
      It’s your own money being used against you

    • Mark H says:

      Many sellers of parts or ammo already have restrictions on specific parts, guns, ammo and magazines shipped to certain states.
      The sellers are all ready conditioned to ask where are we shipping and if you happen to have a zip code in a prohibited state its a no sale.
      Currently on the list for restricting parts ammo or magazines
      Commifornia CA
      Vomitnoise IL
      Puke york NY
      Dirty jerzy NJ
      Craparado CO
      Assachusetts MA(edit)
      Those are the ones of the top of my head that I know restrict due to laws along with full on gun registration via permit to purchase garbage.

      There are other ways if you are close to a non prohibited state but that’s going to change soon with billing zip codes wait and see. They are pulling this via big box stores(online purchase) even if the item is being shipped to an entirely different state. If you are not picking up in a different state they are using the cc’s billing zip for tax collection regardless if you are shipping to another not associated with your billing zip.

      The best option is to move I know many that have and pay cash.

    Seriously?

    Sadly, that goes for EVERY state’s so-called ‘government’, as well as the entire federal so-called ‘government’.

    They’re just not as blatantly obvious as CA.

    But they’re getting there.

    Showing they scared much…!!!!!

    Well if you have been engaged in so much criminality and scamming of the public at large and the sheep are waking to such things, then, yeah, I guess they would want to do what they ARE doing…Won’t work and they know this too…They’re just hoping their enforcers will die for them…Hmmmmm.
