SECTION 1. Section 4132 is added to the Food and AgriculturalTwo things are interesting to me about this:
Code, to read:
4132. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no officer,
employee, operator, or any lessee of District 1-A as defined in
Section 3853 may contract for, authorize, or allow, the sale of any
firearm or ammunition on the property or in the buildings that
comprise the Cow Palace property in San Mateo County and the City and
County of San Francisco or any successor or additional property
owned, leased, or otherwise occupied or operated by the district.
First, it attempts to get around the problems being hashed out in the Nordyke case by not banning possession of firearms, just the sales of firearms and ammunition. Second, this act amends the Food and Agricultural code, not the Penal code, for reasons that are unclear to me.
One might think that is intended to eliminate gun shows at the Cow Palace, and thereby close the "gun show loophole" The irony of this is that all transfers, private and dealer sales, must go through a dealer in this state, so there is no "loophole" to close in this state.
Mark Leno seems to simply dislike gun shows.
