Date Introduced 02/02/2023

Under existing law, a board of county commissioners (board) may
designate unincorporated areas of a county where it is unlawful to
discharge firearms, except the board may not prohibit discharge of
firearms in shooting galleries, on private grounds, or in residences under
circumstances that do not endanger persons or property. A designated
area must have an average population density of 100 persons or more per
square mile.
The bill repeals the exception for private property, repeals the
minimum population density requirement, and instead requires that the
designated area have 30 dwellings or more per square mile. A board is not
allowed to prohibit discharge of a firearm in a designated area by a peace
officer, in an indoor shooting gallery located in a private residence, or at
a shooting range.
