BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — In September, Governor Jerry Brown signed a series of new gun reform bills into law. These firearm and ammunition laws are scheduled to go into effect beginning in January 2019.

Here are links to the bills:
Raising the age limit for purchase of long guns, such as rifles and shotguns, from 18 to 21 years old
Background checks for ammunition sales and vendors tracking ammunition
