AB 2333 would prohibit adults from storing BB, pellet, airsoft, and paintball guns in a manner that results in a minor child's obtaining them without permission and unlawfully taking them to a place where it is illegal to have them. The purpose of AB 2333 is to encourage the safe storage of BB devices in order to prevent confrontations with law enforcement and others who might believe that the minor is holding a real firearm. The intent is to help keep children out of harm’s way. It does not create a new crime or enact mandatory penalties. Courts would have the option of giving warnings or, in the case of multiple offenses, imposing small civil fines.
