An act to add Section 4132 to the Food and Agricultural Code, relating to agricultural districts.


SB 221, Wiener. Agricultural District 1-A: firearm and ammunition sales at the Cow Palace.
Existing law generally regulates the transfer of firearms and divides the state into agricultural districts. District 1-A is the County of San Mateo and the City and County of San Francisco. A violation of the statutes governing agricultural districts is generally a misdemeanor.
This bill would, on and after January 1, 2020, prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Cow Palace located in District 1-A, as specified, and would thereby make a violation of that prohibition a misdemeanor. The bill would exclude from its provisions a gun buy-back event held by a law enforcement agency.
By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 4132 is added to the Food and Agricultural Code, to read:

 (a) Notwithstanding any other law, no officer, employee, operator, or any lessee of District 1-A, as defined in Section 3853, may contract for, authorize, or allow the sale of any firearm or ammunition on the property or in the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace property in San Mateo County and the City and County of San Francisco or any successor or additional property owned, leased, or otherwise occupied or operated by the district.
(b) For purposes of this section:
