Default New California Long Gun Registration Law

Hello Orest, As of today California Governor Jerry Brown has signed into law a new long gun registration law that treats the sale of long guns the same as pistols. This new law will go into effect sometime in 2013. Is the CMP aware of this change to California's firearm sale laws and what effect will this new law have on CMP sales shipping to California.

What's the rush, it's still two and a half years from happening (2014) and may not survive the upcoming court challenges. Right now it's a non issue and there is no reason to make it one.

yes, we are aware. we have not yet evaluated effect, and will take our time doing so. Not the hottest thing on the plate right now.

It's January 1, 2014. And yes, it's going to be in the courts.

What a shame. CA is a huge state with some of the most beautiful forest and mountains in the United States. It is also home to thousands of hunters, fishermen, target shooters etc... Do not vote with your feet, but do vote. The sportsmen of CA need to do all they can to "take back" their state.

It may not take effect for two years but one of the goals of the legislation is to pursuade other states and the federal govt to take similar measures.
Many posters on CALGUNS say don't worry but the bottom line is this is a huge loss for CA gunowners. There were other firearm related measures passed that allow registration monies to go to the general fund as a tax.
The foot is in the door.

It really is a shame that more people don't realize that if we cave on Ca the same thing can and will happen to a gun store near you........ The above comment is REALLY short sighted.

Jan 1,2014 is when it goes into effect but .......... lawyers are already warmed up and ready to go.
