The state of Californias response to the 2022 Bruen decision by the Supreme Court is SB2. An extremely restrictive carry bill that makes getting a permit impossible for some and very difficult for others and expands "sensitive locations". This bill is a quasi carry ban. -- USCCA - https://www.uscca.com/copperjacket Social Media INSTAGRAM - https://www.instagram.com/thedailysho...

Hey everybody, how's it going, and welcome back to Copper Jacket TV. So, while everybody's distracted with New Mexico's ban on open and concealed carry, California is moving forward with its own quasi concealed carry ban, SB2 got some updates. Let's talk about it.

This video is proud to be sponsored by Las Concealment, absolutely some of the best holsters that you are going to find on the market today. With a holster that will fit pretty much everything, as you can see right here, I have the Ronin 3.0. This is a holster and mag carrier in one. It is the most comfortable holster that I have ever worn. It's got bungee retention in the center, allowing it to move and conform to your body, whether you wear this appendix or at the four o'clock position. This is going to be the most comfortable holster that you own. Just like with other Las Concealment holsters, this is not made from an off-the-shelf mold. It's a nicely CNC machined holster with smooth edges and is completely adjustable for the ride height. The magazine holster on this one is relief cut for a good draw of that magazine when you need it. It's adjustable in retention and is a phenomenal holster. If you have a bucket full of holsters that didn't work, check out Las Concealment holsters; this will be the last holster you need.

Okay, let's go and talk about what's going on here. If you're not familiar with SB2, it was California's answer to the Bruin decision. Just like New York, California also had a good cause or just cause requirement that had you prove some type of special need to get a permit. Since most people couldn't prove that special need, pretty much nobody got a permit. The only people that got permits were retired law enforcement judges and people of that nature. So, in California, it was extremely difficult. California had to get rid of that good cause or just cause requirement because Bruin said that it's unconstitutional. They drafted SB2, which was originally introduced back in December of 2022.

Now, when it was originally introduced, it was the worst carry bill that I have ever seen. Not only was it nearly impossible to get a permit, it was also very costly and time-consuming. But let's just say that you actually did get a permit under the original SB2. Even then, you still couldn't use it because you couldn't go about your daily life without crossing through some type of sensitive location or restricted area. So, it was almost like a quasi-ban on concealed carry. California knows how to do these things well and they know how to work around things, drafting new laws that make it harder to legislate. That's what they did with the original SB2.

Now, SB2 has been bounced back and forth between the assembly and the Senate, and there have been quite a few amendments. The last thing to happen just happened yesterday, and that's what we're going to be talking about. Let's go and talk about some of the amendments and what SB2 looks like now that it is back in the Senate and looks like it's going to pass and be headed up to the governor's desk.

Like I said before, I think this is the final version of SB2. This is the one that's going to be voted on very soon and head up to the governor's desk. I just read it this morning, and this is what SB2 looks like now. So, SB2 has changed quite a bit. As far as getting the permit goes, it's going to be just as difficult. There is going to be an extensive background check. In the original version of SB2, they had switched out the "good cause" requirement with "good moral character," and you had to prove that you had this good moral character to get your permit. However, that language has been stricken, but they're still doing character checks on you. They're going to be doing interviews and digging into your past, looking at pretty much everything to determine who you are. The background checks are still going to be pretty extensive, including fingerprints and IDs. Basically, all of your information is going to be required. It's going to be very expensive.

Well, as a matter of fact, they actually took away some of the safeguards that kept things from being overcharged or even more pricey. So, it could potentially be very expensive to get your permit in California if you make it through the background check and all that stuff. The training is still there, all of the hours of training. So, you're talking 16 hours now of mandated training, two full eight-hour days that could potentially take away from work and your time to earn money. On top of the background check and all the other processes, it's going to be very expensive and time-consuming just to get your permit.

Now, if you do get your permit, thankfully there aren't as many sensitive locations. Before, you couldn't even go into the parking lot of a medical facility. They seem to have done away with a lot of that language and limited the sensitive places. But sensitive places still include churches, and that includes their parking lots and adjacent sidewalks, school parking lots, sidewalks adjacent to that, public transportation, airports, and their parking lots and adjacent sidewalks. They expanded the boundaries around those areas, so there are still more sensitive locations than before, but it's not quite as bad.

So, while SB2 did change, it's still a very bad bill and could lead to a lot of people getting into a lot of trouble. It's still like a quasi-carry ban because, while there's no more "good moral character," "good cause," or anything like that, it's still going to be very difficult for most people to get a permit. Unfortunately, it's going to be too expensive for most people to get a permit under SB2 in its current form. This is the version that's going to be headed up to the governor's desk, and we've been watching this one very closely.

California's response to Bruin is essentially, "We don't care what you came up with; we'll go ahead and make some changes." It's going to be just as difficult as before, just in a different way. So, I want to let you guys know about that bill that has been slowly moving and has been seeing a lot of movement over the past two or three weeks. It looks like we're going to see something finalized here very soon, and I'll let you know when the governor actually signs it. This is exactly what he needs and wants. When he signs it, I'll let you guys know, and we'll see if this is the last and final version. Thank you all very much for watching; please like and subscribe. You guys have a great day.
