    ...(g) No person at a gun show or event, other than security
    personnel or sworn peace officers, shall possess at the same time
    both a firearm and ammunition that is designed to be fired in the
    firearm.
    Vendors having those items at the show for sale or
    exhibition are exempt from this prohibition.
    (h) No member of the public who is under the age of 18 years shall
    be admitted to, or be permitted to remain at, a gun show or event
    unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Any member of the
    public who is under the age of 18 shall be accompanied by his or her
    parent, grandparent, or legal guardian while at the show or event.
    (i) Persons other than show or event security personnel, sworn
    peace officers, or vendors, who bring firearms onto the gun show or
    event premises shall sign in ink the tag or sticker that is attached
    to the firearm prior to being allowed admittance to the show or
    event, as provided for in subdivision (j).
    (j) All firearms carried onto the premises of a gun show or event
    by members of the public shall be checked, cleared of any ammunition,
    secured in a manner that prevents them from being operated, and an
    identification tag or sticker shall be attached to the firearm, prior
    to the person being allowed admittance to the show. The
    identification tag or sticker shall state that all firearms transfers
    between private parties at the show or event shall be conducted
    through a licensed dealer in accordance with applicable state and
    federal laws. The person possessing the firearm shall complete the
    following information on the tag before it is attached to the
    firearm:

    or any peace officer.
    (l) Unless otherwise specified, a first violation of this section
    is an infraction.
    Any second or subsequent violation is a
    misdemeanor. Any person who commits an act which he or she knows to
    be a violation of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor for a first
    offense.

    CA legislators - 15,283
