Bill History




 (a) Commencing with the 2023–24 school year, and each school year thereafter, a local educational agency shall do both of the following using the model content developed by the department pursuant to Section 49391:

(1) Require the parents or guardians of a pupil to disclose, on a form used to enroll or register a pupil for the school year, whether any firearms are located at the home of the pupil and, if so, to answer questions about the ownership, storage, and accessibility by the pupil of the firearms.

(2) Include in the annual notification required pursuant to Section 48980, information relating to the safe storage of firearms.

(b) In addition to the annual notification, the local educational agency may include information relating to the safe storage of firearms on the disclosure form described in paragraph (1) of subdivision (a).

Comments: Oppose

More police state tactics in the guise of safety. If there is a threat of gun related violence by a student every step should taken to investigate such a threat by school officials and local law enforcement but even so, all investigations, including searches would need to be done within an individual's already clearly defined constitutional rights.
