Abstract

Existing law authorizes the licensing authority of a city, county, or a city and county to grant licenses to sell firearms at retail within the city, county, or city and county. Existing law requires the Department of Justice to maintain a list of licensed firearms dealers. Existing law authorizes the department to inspect dealers to ensure compliance with specified provisions of firearms law and to assess an annual fee to cover the reasonable costs of maintaining the dealer list and conducting inspections. Existing law exempts a dealer located in a jurisdiction that has adopted an inspection program to ensure compliance with firearms law from that portion of the department's fee that relates to the cost of inspections. This bill would, commencing January 1, 2024, require the department to conduct inspections of dealers at least every 3 years, with the exception of a dealer whose place of business is located in a jurisdiction that has adopted an inspection program. The bill would authorize the department to inspect a dealer whose place of business is located in a jurisdiction that has adopted an inspection program. The bill would also specify minimum sampling standards for the audit of dealer records during an inspection.
