Summary:
Existing law provides that the Legislature occupies the whole field of regulation of the manufacture, sale, or possession of imitation firearms, as defined, and that those provisions shall preempt and be exclusive of all regulations relating to the manufacture, sale, or possession of imitation firearms, including regulations governing the manufacture, sale, or possession of BB devices and air… More
Existing law provides that the Legislature occupies the whole field of regulation of the manufacture, sale, or possession of imitation firearms, as defined, and that those provisions shall preempt and be exclusive of all regulations relating to the manufacture, sale, or possession of imitation firearms, including regulations governing the manufacture, sale, or possession of BB devices and air rifles, as specified. Existing law defines “imitation firearm” to include a “BB device” and defines a “BB device,” for specified purposes, to include any spot marker gun.

This bill would narrow those preemption provisions to instead provide that it is the intent of the Legislature to occupy the entire field of regulation of spot marker guns which expel a projectile larger than 16mm, and that no city, county, city and county, or other local government entity may enact any ordinance or resolution prohibiting or regulating the manufacture, sale, possession, or use of any spot marker gun which expels a projectile larger than 16mm.
