As “Dandy” Don Meredith used to sing as each Monday Night Football game became a fait accompli, turn out the lights, the party’s over. While that may be slightly strong as far as Golden State gun rights (such as they are) are concerned, it’s not far off the mark. Here’s the list (courtesy Dan Silverman) of bills that have passed the legislature and are on their way to Governor Moonbeam’s desk for his customary rubber stamp:
SB 299 (DeSaulnier) Theft or Loss reporting within 7 days – Passed 41-32
SB 683 (Block) Long gun safety certificate – Passed 44-30

SB 374 (Steinberg) – the Semi-Auto Rifle Ban just passed out of the Assembly – Passed 42 – 30 Abstain 6. It now goes back to the Senate for concurrence and upon approval, will head to the Governor’s Desk.
