Bills Brown signed:
▪ Assembly Bill 1511, by Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, D-Los Angeles, requiring that the infrequent loans of a firearm be made only to family members.
▪ Senate Bill 880, co-authored by Sens. Isadore Hall, D-Compton, and Steve Glazer, D-Orinda, and Assembly Bill 1135, Assemblyman Mark Levine, D-Greenbrae, amending the definition of assault weapon to include semi-automatic rifles with magazines that can be detached with a button.
▪ Assembly Bill 1695, by Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, mandating swifter reporting periods for lost or stolen firearms.
Bills Brown vetoed:
▪ Assembly Bill 1176, by Assemblyman Jim Cooper, D-Elk Grove, which would have clarified that stealing a firearm is felony grand theft.
▪ Assembly Bill 1674, by Santiago, which would have extended the limit on handguns of one purchase per month to long guns.
The bills passed the Legislature along largely partisan lines. Democrats argued increased restrictions will reduce gun violence, while Republicans said they would burden law-abiding gun owners.
was at a concert that I heard he was attending," she told Graham Norton during an interview. "So I had my full security, I was like, 'Find Donald Trump.' I was adamant on finding him and making a video of me going, 'Hey, Trump. F**k you!'" That video, clearly, didn't end up getting made, but not for lack of trying. "I think he knew I was looking for him," she added.

I'm just waiting to see who they will blame things on after these magical, crime reducing measures come into effect.
They will not be happy until the GESTAPO armed with GUNZ goes from door to door rounding each and every one of them up.
They're trying to whittle down the arsenal before they can do that

Brown has held California gun restrictions out as “some of the toughest” in the country, while complaining that more permissive laws in neighboring states dilute their effect. Following the December rampage at a social services center in San Bernardino that left 14 people dead, Brown called “wide open” gun laws in Nevada and Arizona a “gigantic back door through which any terrorist can walk.”
Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday, July 1 vetoed legislation co-authored by an Inland assemblywoman that would have made all firearm thefts a felony offense.
AB 1176, co-authored by Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, was intended to reverse a change made by Prop. 47, which made theft of a gun valued at $950 or less a misdemeanor.
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said the veto is frustrating to many law enforcement officers, who dislike the impact the proposition has had on enforcement.
"Handguns are traditionally worth about $400 or $600," Burguan said. "We are literally catching people with stolen guns and all we can give them is a ticket for it. It's maddening."

This is absolutely ridiculous. Is confiscation coming for anyone with a standard capacity magazine or a modern sporting rifle? I still don't understand how you permanently lock a magazine into the firearm without a release.
I hope there is an uprising for this.

So basically, Brown vetoed a bill that would have made all firearm theft a felony. In my opinion, firearm theft is a serious offense. I believe if you steal a gun, you probably have intent to use it in a crime.
