California Passes Sweeping Gun Control: Red Flag Gun Confiscation Just Signed into Law

The Governor of the People’s Republic of California has just signed 15 gun control bills into law, including bills that will allow the State of California to start confiscating guns from California Citizens.


“Gun violence is an epidemic in this country, one that’s been enflamed by the inaction of politicians in Washington,” said Governor Newsom. “While Washington has refused to act on even the most basic gun safety reforms, California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”

California continues to be a leader in fighting the threat of gun violence,” said former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, co-founder of Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence. “The legislative package Governor Newsom signed today will help make California safer for all who call it home, and it shows the nation what committed, active, and thoughtful leadership on gun safety looks like. Giffords is proud to have played a strong role in helping craft this package and to have partnered with Governor Newsom, the legislature’s gun violence working group and so many other courageous leaders in California to push these bills to become law.”

The bills signed today by Governor Newsom include the following:

Gun Confiscation Bills and Red Flag Confiscations

  • AB 12 sponsored by Assembly Member Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks), extends the duration of California’s “gun violence restraining order” law from one year to up to five years. This new bill will allow a California citizen to be prohibited from owning and possessing firearms for five years without ever being adjudicated as dangerously mentally ill or convicted of a crime.  ​ 
  • AB 61, sponsored by Assembly Member Philip Ting (D-San Francisco), is probably one of the most frightening bills signed because it basically allows almost anyone to petition the court to confiscate your firearms. The bill allows an employer, coworker, or an employee or teacher to file a petition requesting a gun violence restraining order. That means the State can take away a person’s Second Amendment rights, not based on criminal convictions or mental health adjudications, but based on third party allegations.​    
  • AB 164 sponsored by Assembly member Sabrina Cervantes (D-Riverside) holds any person subject to a valid restraining order, injunction, or protective order issued out of state to the same restrictions on buying or possessing firearms in California as they are under in the state where the order or injunction is operative.
  • AB 339 sponsored by Assembly member Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) requires law enforcement agencies to develop and adopt written policies and standards regarding the use of gun violence restraining orders.
  • AB 1493 sponsored by Assembly member Philip Ting (D-San Francisco) authorizes a person who is the subject of a gun violence restraining order to petition to submit a form to the court voluntarily relinquishing their firearm rights.

Regulating firearms sales

  • SB 61, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) prohibits the sale of a semiautomatic centerfire rifle to any person under 21 years of age and applications to purchase more than one semiautomatic centerfire rifle in any 30-day period, with a few exceptions.
  • SB 376, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) prevents individuals from selling large numbers of firearms without a license by capping the number of annual sales at five transactions or 50 firearms.
  • AB 645 sponsored by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) requires packaging for firearms to contain a warning statement on suicide prevention.
  • AB 879 sponsored by Assemblymember Mike Gipson (D-Carson) requires, starting in 2024, that the sale of firearms precursor parts be conducted through a licensed firearms precursor part vendor.
  • AB 1669 sponsored by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Alameda) updates existing law by applying the same gun show regulations that already apply to firearms dealers to ammunition vendors, and ensures that sufficient funding is available for firearm regulatory efforts.
  • AB 1297 sponsored by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) requires any local authority issuing concealed firearm licenses to charge an applicant a fee sufficient to cover the reasonable costs of processing, issuing, and enforcement of the license, and eliminates the existing $100 limit on processing fees for concealed firearm licenses.
  • AB 893 sponsored by Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) prohibits the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in the County of San Diego, the City of Del Mar, the City of San Diego.

This all comes in the same week the State cut power to almost a million residents, Los Angeles is being hit by massive wildfires, and California Officials declared Ham Radio was no longer a benefit and started demanding Ham radio repeater infrastructure to be removed.

So let’s review:

  • This week they cut power to conservative areas of the State.
  • They started going after gun owners, and passed gun confiscation laws
  • And they targeted communications…

What the hell is going on in California?

Why California…

    • Take guns away from law abiding citizens this will NOT stop one single gun death I reiterate it would not have stopped ANY of these so-called mass-shootings and it will not stop any future shootings Good thing we have a Second Amendment that guarantees every citizens

      • Here’s a clue California if you want to have an honest conversation about gun violence and ways to reduce it you need to stop lying you need to stop lying about the epidemic and homicides committed with firearms have been on the decline even in gang war zones you need to stop lying about defensive gun uses and to defend their rights from infringement by opportunistic politians Those who disagree with your agenda and trying to destroy the lives and livelihoods of those who don’t toe your ideological Red Line

      • Your so right. Criminals and bad people don’t buy their guns from a store or get background checks. All this does is put cuffs on law abiding citizens. Let these politicians give up their armed security guards and their guns.

    • Not too much longer and CA will have more in common with China than the US. There are several ways to store your hardware from prying eyes. The best advice I can give is to not advertise your wares, because sooner or later the wrong people will know.

    • You have just signed the death warrant on many innocent California citizens. Now only the criminals have guns. Do you people in California not have any sense? How dare you take away their second amendment rights you ought to be held and responsibilities for anybody that dies they didn’t have the guns anymore. Shame on you.

    • And when this fails to garner “petitions” as stated, then what? Lower the “squealer-bar”? It is all about confiscation. The standards keep being changed/lowered to accommodate confiscation. When do the 3:00 am raids going to start being implemented? It is all about confiscation! All the politicians are doing is putting lipstick on a pig!

  1. Communist State. Our military should wipe out the treasonous state officials and according to this the Democrats are treasonous. The state has seized its citizen and destroyed the 2nd Amendment for its citizens along with their freedoms.

  2. Communist/socialist state? Hammer and sickle? Red army? Venezuela? NK? China/Russia? Get the point idiots? You voted into office your emperor/ruler/dictator!!!! SMMFH. Liberals democraps like YOU who voted for shitfxck newsome to office that assures our demise.

  3. Idiots. Guns are an object there is nothing violent about them. More people are murdered by cows each year than rifles. How about abortions, or knives, heroin, alcohol, you idiots are worried about guns. This legislation is all about control.

  4. We need a revolution. Thats what its going to come down to. And the problem doesnt just lie in california. Its happening everywhere. If we want to keep our rights, its time to do something about it.

    • The constitution gives citizens the right to revolt. The commi/demos fear this and are writing laws to take that right away. They are not just treasonist, they are evil.

  5. There is a guy who recommends getting to know your local gun owners and having a plan in place for WHEN they come for you. He recommends a double level – first responders who come to the victim’s home and take up tactical positions around the arresting SWAT team to prevent their entering the house, or if too late for that – to prevent other abuses.
    The second level teams block the road and acquire protective positions to prevent back-up units from rolling on the same victim’s house. The SWAT team – being proven to be grossly anti-American and in total violation of the constitution and guilty of felonious perjury in violating their oath to defend the constitution they rape at red flag thieving sites – have their badges, weapons, tactical gear, and vehicles removed. Since they are NOT protecting the constitution, and their equipment is FOR protecting the constitution – then they have no right to utilize the equipment that we the people paid for their protections of us.

    They abuse their oaths – they actually deserve to die as treasonous, but this sends a message. i hope we can organize this way or we will lose our defense one person at a time. Florida is taking their red flag laws to the point that they are using SWAT teams to take away 5 people’s arms per day…

  6. Once my parents have passed on , I am out of CA.
    All these CA gun laws are unconstitutional. These communist control freaks are going to lose their civil war/revolution.

    • I left Cali almost four weeks which. I moved to a place that the wild animals rule. I feel much safer here.

    Laurence Almand

    The recent passage of a number of “Red Flag” laws to steal guns away from “suspicious” people is just another gun-grabbing scheme concocted by anti-gun do-gooders.

    Such laws blatantly go against the principle of due process, and place the burden of proof upon the accused, not the accuser.

    Such laws deliberately encourage malicious liars who want to cause trouble for people they wish to harass and torment, for one reason or another.

    If a Malicious Mother-In-Law (there are plenty of those) or a Spiteful Spouse (there are plenty of those also) want to take revenge on someone, all they have to do is make false accusations, and the accused’s property is stolen.

    Suicide Prevention: Another excuse for such laws is that they prevent suicides. This is nonsense. In the first place, suicide is the right of the individual. A person’s life is his own, not the bureaucrat’s. In the second place, if a person wants to end his life he does not have to use a gun. Actor Robin Williams used an ordinary leather belt to kill himself. Shall we ban all the belts?

    Any gun owner who is maliciously accused by spiteful, lying people should immediately file a Defamation of Character suit, and make the liars pay for their false accusations.
