Default 2013 California Bill INDEX THREAD - look here to find the Calguns threads about bills

This is a bit earlier than I had planned to create this thread, but the legislature was in session this week, for a day.

Let's use this thread as an index to the bill threads here on Calguns - find them, start a real thread, post a link to the thread here.

'Real thread' titles need to be specific:

2012 -- the year introduced, so when someone necroposts in 2013 we know the bill is not current

AB or SB ###


Topic of the bill

So, "SB 124: 2011 DeLeon Ammunition Bill" has all the info in the title. (The colors are here just to identify the parts - nobody should use them, unless they think it's fun or something, but they won't appear in color on the forum page.)

Discussion on the bills, status updates, etc. should go in the specific bill threads.

Bill threads should have a link to the bill page, not just the bill text as introduced - since the bills get amended, and the bill status is at the bill page link.

No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
- Thomas Sowell
I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
