California Gov. Brown signs 3 gun control bills

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed measures to end the last narrow allowances in the state for campus carry and open carry but rejected one to mandate increased security at gun stores.

Brown, a Democrat, signed AB 7, AB 424 and AB 1525 over the weekend while returning SB 464 to lawmakers, describing the last measure, aimed at ramping up security measures at gun shops across the state, as an overreach.

“State law already requires that firearms dealers enact security measures to avoid theft,” said Brown in his veto message. “Local jurisdictions can — and have — gone further by adding specific requirements. I believe local authorities are in the best situation to determine if any additional measures are needed in their jurisdictions.”

The bill’s sponsorl, state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, argued the increase in security was needed following incidents where burglars used cars to smash into gun stores across the state. The measure would have required gun stores to keep their firearms in a secure facility with steel bars on windows, deadbolted doors or metal grates over entrances, and an alarm system protecting ventilation in addition to installing exterior features such as concrete bollards.

    You can only do so much as far as security…..if they want to get in…they WILL find a way…
    criminals won’t follow any of the rules anyway…the laws are to charge them once they are caught…NOT to prevent crime from happening

  • Charlie Silvertooth

    I would get outta that screwed up state so fast .

      I grew up in Newport Beach when it was paradise, good waves, good fishing. What happened? Moonbeam Brown for one thing, then all the rest of the “Dims.” And I mean “Dim.”

      • Ethan

        Any state that put Moonbeam in office for a second time deserves the government it gets.

  • Tomcat01

    The insanity of those running this my home state amazes me at times. All these laws do is create the potential for more victims.

    • Nathan

      Leave the state. I did in 79. Never set foot in it again

    • Ethan

      Yeah, Governor Moonbeam keeps peeing in the swamp that was once paradise on earth. (born Los Angeles 1931)

  • monongahela

    Brown makes a moron look like a road scholar.

    • Thomas Rush

      That’s “Rhodes Scholar”. Of course, it’s possible you were being ironic.

      • monongahela

        I was just pointing out how dumb Brown is

        • boone1

          Gov. Jerry Brown is not a dumb ass nor is he a moron but a NWO IDIOT to think that the would will be better off under a NWO government.As I have always said democRATS have all always been communist.

  • Alan404

    How long might it be before Gun Ships in California have become artifacts of history, and should we arrive at such situation, seemingly desired by some or many elected things, and it turns out that criminals are still armed, and still prey on the defenseless, what might these worthies then say or do? One wonders.

  • William McNamara

    I often wonder if his father had any kids that lived……

    • Snake

      His father wished he was half the man his mother was!

  • chucklc

    At the risk of sounding inhumane,wonder if they will wait to succeed from the Union until they cash their tax funded checks from Treasury to help with the tragic fires.

    • Thomas Rush

      Do you mean “secede from the Union”? “Succeed” is something else entirely.

      • chucklc

        Thank you,stand corrected.

    • marcus J

      Yes the fires are tragic , Has anyone found out how the Fires started ?? I believe everyone knows how much The Communist Party formerly known as The Demonic Rats love their new and loyal voting block =Foreign Criminal Invaders / Unregistered Democrats , Just days ago Jesus Fabian Gonzalez was arrested for Arson , It turns out that Jesus has been Deported twice before and started the Fires in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties , It amazes me how much damage one Foreign Criminal Invader can do

      • chucklc

        Thanks Liberal ass media will never make mention of this.

      • Ethan

        Thank the California environmentalists for the fires, they won’t permit clearing underbrush for fear it might disturb the habitat of some obscure beetle.

  • disqus_rEWjgfyzIp

    stick a 24/7 guard in a store with AR and a 30 round magazine and problem solved, wait they cant as no 30 round magazines and cant eject the magazine quick enough due to BS gun laws there. All infringing on the 2nd amendment.

  • Victoria

    Just another traitor in our government! He ought to be ashamed of himself!

  • Sid sees her

    It’s becoming a hazard lately to even let Moonbeam out of the closet! So now it’s up to the citizens to deal with their cancer in Sacremento. Or go down with the sinking ship.

  • Teeseeree

    Send this idiot packing, and I don’t mean packing heat! If we could get rid of Grade A Doofus, we can get rid of him too!

  • generalJed

    Federal legislation needs to be passed against these Second Amendment killing laws in California and elsewhere. When the 1994 “Assault Weapon Ban” was passed, it covered the entire country. There is no reason to not pass this Federal law protecting the Second Amendment .

  • Michael Spinelli

    He can sign whatever legislation he wants. The 2nd Amendment provides for “the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. Sooner or later the Supreme Court will reverse whatever he can come up with.

  • boone1

    Gov. Jerry Brown needs to be put away he is a communist democRAT useful IDIOT for the NWO. AS all communist democrats are.

  • shadowlee

    Just think, no guns, no shoot illegals setting fires to burn up weed. Get it all from Mex.

    • Raul Villarreal

      Just so that you’ll know,most of the illegals are from central America.

  • marcus J

    Here we go again , Jerry Moonbeam Brown , The head of the Communist Party formerly known as The Demonic Rats in the Bankrupt Third World Socialist Banana Republic of Mexifornia , Send in some more ICE Agents to arrest Jerry
