Summary

The bill declares that the regulation of firearms is a matter of state
and local concern. Existing law prohibits a local government from
enacting an ordinance, regulation, or other law that prohibits the sale,
purchase, or possession of a firearm. The bill permits a local government
to enact an ordinance, regulation, or other law governing or prohibiting
the sale, purchase, transfer, or possession of a firearm, ammunition, or

firearm component or accessory that is not less restrictive than state laws
governing the sale, purchase, transfer, or possession of the firearm,
ammunition, or firearm component or accessory.
Existing law prohibits a local government from enacting an
ordinance or resolution that conflicts with state law regarding concealed
carry of handguns. The bill permits a local government, including a
special district, and governing board of an institution of higher education
to enact an ordinance, resolution, rule, or other regulation that prohibits
a permittee from carrying a concealed handgun in a building or specific
area within the local government's or governing board's jurisdiction.
