AB 1695 (Bonta) would make it a misdemeanor to knowingly issue a false report of a stolen firearm to law enforcement, as well as to possess a firearm within ten years of being convicted of the aforementioned offense. This bill would require the Attorney General to provide all gun owners with an informational letter on the legal regulations concerning gun use, gun trafficking and safe storage.
