California Releases Assault
Weapons Ban Language

By Beth Baumann. May 19th, 2017

This morning, the State of California released their language regarding their assault weapons and high-capacity magazine bans.

In the document, the state mandates all firearms they consider to be "assault weapons" must be registered with the Department of Justice:

Any person who from January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2016 inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine as defined in Penal Code section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be readily removed from the firearm with the use of a tool (commonly referred to as a bullet-button weapon) must register the firearm before January 1, 2018.

The Golden State is considering anything without a "fixed magazine" the size of the pistol grip to be an assault weapon. The focus is primarily on those who build their own AR-15 style pistols.

Residents are then required to go through a number of crazy steps to make sure their firearm is in compliance: .......

The "crazy steps" referred to have to be seen to be believed - some are almost so devious that it's hard to imagine anyone successfully completing them all. It has to be wondered just how much compliance will occur compared with how many cases of total non-compliance, following which what measures will be taken for enforcement and prosecution. One thing is certain - the gangs will certainly not be looking to register any of their weapons! This whole thing is incredible and almost beyond infringement.
