LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 539, Pan. Firearm possession: prohibitions: transfer to licensed dealer.
Existing law prohibits specified persons, including persons convicted of specified crimes, persons addicted to the use of any narcotic drug, certain probationers, and persons against whom specified restraining orders or injunctions apply, from possessing a firearm. Under existing law a violation of these provisions is justified if the person possessed the firearm no longer than was necessary to deliver or transport the firearm to a law enforcement agency for that agency’s disposition according to law, if certain requirements are met. Existing law allows a firearm that is in the custody of a law enforcement agency to be sold or transferred to a licensed dealer if the law enforcement agency determines that the legal owner of the firearm is prohibited from possessing the firearm. Existing law requires that a person prohibited from possessing a firearm pursuant to certain provisions of law to be notified and provided with a form to facilitate the transfer of firearms. Existing law requires the Judicial Council to provide notice on all protective orders that the respondent is prohibited from possessing a firearm while the protective order is in effect and that the firearm shall be relinquished to a local law enforcement agency or a licensed firearms dealer.
This bill would allow anyone who is prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm pursuant to the above provisions or any other provision of law to transfer any firearm or firearms in his or her possession, or of which he or she is the owner, to a licensed firearms dealer for the duration of the prohibition if the prohibition on owning or possessing the firearm will expire on a date specified in the court order. The bill would require a firearms dealer who stores a firearm under these circumstances to notify the Department of Justice of the date that the dealer has taken possession of the firearm, and would also require the Attorney General to maintain a record of this information. The bill would make conforming changes to the above provisions. Because the bill would impose certain requirements on local agencies relating to the transfer of firearms to a licensed firearms dealer, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
This bill would incorporate additional changes to Section 11106 of the Penal Code, proposed by AB 500 and SB 53, that would become operative only if this bill and either or both of those bills are chaptered and become effective January 1, 2014, and this bill is chaptered last.
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, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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