Recently the California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms sent out a notice to California firearms dealers with information regarding the recently passed “assault weapon” legislation, SB 880 and AB 1135. Persons who are wanting to acquire a firearm equipped with a “bullet button” or that will be considered an “assault weapon” under the new laws, must be processed and received by December 31st, 2016. With California’s 10 day waiting period, the DROS process must be started no later than December 21st. Given that unforeseen circumstances do arise, it is recommended that you plan accordingly.
Waiting for Additional Answers from DOJ
With the passage of Prop 63 and the recently passed package of gun control bills, many Californian’s are concerned about what is to come once these laws are implemented. Rest assured that your NRA is doing everything possible to continue the fight both legislatively and legally. Further, know that the California Department of Justice, who is tasked with implementation, still needs to promulgate rules. These rules could provide additional hurdles that may require further legislative and legal action on behalf of gun owners.
The NRA remains committed to the fight for our rights in California. With anti-gun politicians holding legislative majorities and often being directed by elitist billionaires who oppose the right to keep and bear arms, this is an uphill battle. Know that we will continue to work tirelessly to defend your rights in California and across the Nation.
Recently, the NRA and CRPA hosted several webinars on the recently passed package of bills in addition to Prop 63. If you missed these important Webinars – do not worry!
