SUPPORT AB 879: to expand background checks to trace firearm parts

Support AB 879: Regulates so-called "Ghost Guns"

by Youth ALIVE! | 4.27.19

Support AB 879: the bill would expand background checks to trace firearm parts that continue to be overlooked and untraceable. This bill comes at a time when we are in critical need of a legitimate solution to help close the ghost gun loop hole.


Part of preventing violence is tracing firearms of all types and parts, with an intention to create a dependable system of firearm purchase accountability and safety.

This bill would require a person or business to have a valid firearm precursor part vendor license to sell more than one firearm precursor part in any 30-day period. This bill would make a violation of this prohibition would be a misdemeanor. The bill would require that a licensed firearm dealer or licensed ammunition vendor automatically be deemed a licensed firearm precursor part vendor. The bill would create an application process for firearm precursor part vendors, as specified. The bill would establish the Firearm Precursor Parts Special Account, into which vendor license fees would be deposited. The bill would continuously appropriate money in the fund to the department for purposes of implementing, administering, and enforcing the firearm precursor part authorization program, thereby making an appropriation. The bill would require the firearm precursor part vendor to conduct business at the location specified in the license, except in the case of gun shows or events, as specified.

AB 879 would require an extra layer of safety, accountability, tracing and violence prevention.
