Second Amendment

California To Restrict BB Guns

Must be kept locked away from minors or Big Nanny will be quite cross


“They’ll have to pry my BB gun from my cold, dead arms,” one commenter wrote on the legislative web page for AB 2333. The bill, by Assemblyman Jose Solorio, D-Anaheim, will require parents to keep BB guns under lock and key safely away from minors, or face a $200 fine and a requirement to perform community service, after receiving written warnings.

I am not aware of any recent outbreaks of BB gun assaults on the public.

“I can’t believe that we are actually bringing a bill like this, about imitation firearms,” Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Hesperia, said in floor debate Wednesday. “…to store away from the kids, but they are for kids to use.”
