CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2015–2016 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 1332


Introduced by Senator Mendoza

February 19, 2016


An act to amend Sections 11106, 17060, 26600, 27050, 27600, 28300, and 31705 of, and to add Section 27882 to, the Penal Code, relating to firearms.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1332, Mendoza. Firearms.
Existing law requires the Attorney General to maintain a registry of all firearm owners consisting of the name, address, identification of, place of birth, complete telephone number, occupation, sex, description, and all legal names and aliases used by the owner of a particular firearm as listed on the Dealers’ Record of Sale or other specified reports.
Existing law establishes the Firearms Safety and Enforcement Special Fund and makes the revenue deposited into that fund available for expenditure by the department upon appropriation by the Legislature for purposes relating to the regulation of firearms.
This bill would, commencing January 1, 2019, require the Department of Justice to modify its registration form so that both spouses or both domestic partners may register as the owners of the firearm and would require the department to maintain both names on the firearms registry. The bill would additionally make the revenue in the Firearms Safety and Enforcement Special Fund available for the purpose of implementing this registration process.
Existing law also requires the Attorney General to maintain information regarding firearms from certain other reports pertaining to firearms transactions and authorizes specified officers, including peace officers, to disseminate information from specified reports if certain conditions are satisfied, including if the subject of the record has been arraigned for a crime.
This bill would additionally require the Attorney General to maintain the information supplied to the Department of Justice in certain forms submitted by persons who take possession of a firearm pursuant to a specified exception to the general requirement that firearms transactions be completed through a licensed firearms dealer and would authorize information in those forms to be disseminated pursuant to the above provisions.
Existing law requires the loan of a firearm to be conducted through a licensed firearms dealer. Existing law makes a violation of this requirement a crime.
The bill would create exceptions to the dealer requirement for a loan of a firearm in which the firearm is being stored in the receiver’s residence or in an enclosed structure on the receiver’s private property, if certain criteria are met.
This bill would incorporate changes to Section 11106 of the Penal Code proposed by both this bill and AB 857, which would become operative only if both bills are enacted and become effective on or before January 1, 2017, and this bill is chaptered last.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 (a) The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(1) Under current state procedures, the initial acquisition process to acquire a firearm includes, among other requirements, a background check, a firearm safety certificate, and, upon completion of the process, registration of that firearm to that person in the centralized registry as set forth in Section 11106 of the Penal Code.
(2) The current background check and registration process allows only one person to initially acquire and be the registered owner of that firearm.
(3) The California Constitution provides that property owned before marriage or acquired during marriage by gift, will, or inheritance is separate property.
(4) Community property rights are protected through the Due Process Clause and other clauses of the California Constitution.
(5) On July 20, 2015, the California Supreme Court in the case In re Marriage of Davis (2015) 61 Cal.4th 846 confirmed that Section 760 of the Family Code specifically allows property acquired by the spouses during the marriage not to be treated as community property where otherwise provided by statute.
(6) Allowing property acquired by spouses during the marriage not to be treated as community property where otherwise provided by statute was foreshadowed by the decision of the Court of Appeals in Crosby v. H.L.C. Properties LTD (2014) 223 Cal.App.4th 597, 609, fn. 10.
(7) Under current law, a person who is licensed to carry a handgun in public is licensed to carry a specific handgun, and in many jurisdictions licensing authorities license both spouses to carry the same handgun, but in other jurisdictions licenses to carry will not be issued unless the handgun is first registered to the applicant.
(8) Because carry license information is reported to the Department of Justice and is required to be included in the centralized registry, joint registration is occurring today, albeit under the carry license system.
(9) Joint family firearm registration is expressly allowed for assault weapons and .50 BMG rifles.
(10) Joint spousal firearm registration exists in Hawaii, Maryland, and New York.
(11) Firearms initially constituting separate property may be jointly registered to a spouse via the transmutation process and via the operation of law procedures set forth in subdivision (g) of Section 16990 and paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 27920 of the Penal Code, without being processed through a state-licensed firearms dealer. The clear intent of those provisions is to allow joint spousal registration via that process but not to otherwise permit joint registration. The amendments to Section 11106 of the Penal Code made by the act that added this section, insofar as relevant, are designed to effectuate that intent.
(12) Also via the operation of law process, separate property of one spouse may be transmuted to another spouse as separate property.
(13) Firearms brought into this state by new residents which were acquired outside of this state by such persons when residents of that other state are being allowed to be jointly registered in effect to both spouses pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 27560 of the Penal Code, without being processed through a state-licensed firearms dealer. The amendments made to Section 11106 of the Penal Code by the act that added this section, insofar as relevant, are designed to allow that to continue if it is occurring now.
(14) The Department of Justice, pursuant to Section 28000 of the Penal Code, allows a person to deregister a firearm if certain conditions are met, including, among other conditions, providing the department with official documentation that the firearm has, in fact, been disposed of. The amendments made to Section 11106 of the Penal Code by the act that added this section, insofar as relevant, are designed to allow that to continue if it is occurring now.
(15) The process of deregistering a firearm by filing a form pursuant to Section 28000 of the Penal Code detailing the disposal of a firearm because the firearm was transferred to another requires submission to the department of a formal department-generated document stating that the firearm was reregistered. If the disposition form is not submitted pursuant to Section 28000 of the Penal Code, then a firearm may in effect be technically listed as being registered to both parties involved in the transfer.
(16) There are legitimate concerns that if joint firearm registration is explicitly allowed by virtue of the amendments made to Section 11106 of the Penal Code by the act that added this section, it may create a number of issues regarding third-party rights when the time comes to dispose of those jointly registered firearms. Those concerns exist now as to jointly registered .50 BMG rifles and assault weapons.
(b) It is the intent of the Legislature, if joint firearm registration does not occur pursuant to the amendments made to Section 11106 of the Penal Code by the act that added this section, to enact legislation that will go into effect prior to January 1, 2019, to implement an explicit joint firearm registration system in a user-friendly manner that protects public safety and does not complicate the disposition of firearms that are jointly registered.
(c) It is also the intent of the Legislature that the Department of Justice make available on its Internet Web site, in an editable public display format, the form referred to in Section 27882 of the Penal Code.
