There is no requirement for a locked container with the exception of long guns considered to be "assault weapons". Federal law requires locking containers when inside of a "gun-free school zone. However, in Congress passed an amendment to the law requiring the gun to have traveled in interstate commerce, thereby voiding the effect of the ruling. Possession and Importation of Assault Weapon or.
Added by Stats. Operative January 1, Child safety[ edit ] Firearms must be kept locked up when children may be present. Authorities in most urban areas will prosecute someone for merely possessing a prohibited firearm regardless of intent, whereas county sheriffs and local police in some rural counties have either refused to enforce the ban or to only prosecute those in possession of banned weapons who demonstrate malicious intent.
This includes many military look-alike semi-automatic rifles and. However, in the case Harrott v.
County of Kings 25 P. With the passage of Senate Bill and Assembly Bill in June , the state's assault weapon ban has been expanded to include all semi-automatic center-fire rifles and shotguns with military-style features that lack a fixed magazine. This expanded the class of firearms deemed to be assault weapons to include rifles that were previously not considered assault weapons because they had a "bullet button" magazine release instead of a standard push-button magazine release.
The sale or transfer of such weapons is prohibited, effective January 1, It is illegal to import, sell, give, trade, or lend a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition, except for fixed tubular magazines for lever-action rifles and. The ban on possession was prevented from going into effect by a federal district court on June 29, The ban on possession of large-capacity magazines remains enjoined.

While a Rossi Circuit Judge 18" barrel is considered a shotgun with a revolving cylinder violation of 8 above , the CA DOJ claims it is legal because it has a rifled barrel. However, the Taurus Judge handgun is considered a "short-barreled shotgun" and therefore illegal in CA, even though it fires the same shot shell as the Circuit Judge, as well as has a rifled barrel.
Conversely, there are many revolvers that fire shot shells made in different calibers e. Even though these handguns, with less that 18" barrels, fire shot shells, like the Judge, they are legal in California.
One of the most common modifications prior to was a "bullet button", which modified a rifle so that the magazine is not removable without the use of a tool which could include a bullet used as a tool per state law , which presses a button that a finger alone cannot press. Weapons with this feature were deemed to no longer have a "detachable magazine" within the assault weapons definition, and therefore could be exempt from the law as it then stood, depending on the other requirements.
It is under these exceptions that the weapons used in the San Bernardino terrorist attack  were legal when initially downloadd, and subsequently illegally sold to the perpetrators.
Transfer of registered assault weapons to private individuals is generally not permitted, including in cases where the owner is deceased. Upon their death, the assault weapon must either be rendered permanently inoperable; surrendered to the DOJ, a police department, or licensed firearms dealer; or removed from the state.
Non-resident, active duty military members who bring their firearms into California when permanently assigned to a military installation within the state.
Prior to arrival, the military member must submit an application for a Military Assault Weapon Permit and a copy of his or her assignment orders and an authorization letter from the installation commander to the DOJ, and the firearm s in question are legal to obtain and possess in his or her home state.
Military Assault Weapon Permits are valid for one year from the date of issuance, and can be renewed annually as long as the military member remains permanently stationed within the state. Resident police officers in California may own listed assault weapons with permission of their police chief and the DOJ.
As of [update] , police officers may keep their assault weapons and large-capacity magazines after retirement or separation from the force. No permission is needed for police to download and possess magazines that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition, but they must present proof of their active law enforcement affiliation. Firearms that would have been classified as assault weapons but are used for Olympic and International competitions are exempt.
There is a list of the exempt firearms, and new firearms can be added to the list if needed by USA Shooting , the governing body for Olympic and International Shooting Sport competition. Assault weapons being imported into California for sale and delivery to a federal, state or local governmental agency for use by employees of such agencies to perform official duties.
Private security firms may seek approval from the DOJ to arm its employees with weapons that meet California's assault weapon definition while on duty. Employees of such firms are subject to extensive training and vetting requirements prior to obtaining DOJ approval to carry assault weapons on duty.
Assault weapons intended for use in the film industry are allowed, with approval from the DOJ. Individuals who demonstrate exceptional good cause for the issuance of a Dangerous Weapons Permit meeting this criteria is extremely rare--usually limited to individuals with political connections , and further demonstrate their acquisition and possession of defined assault weapons will not threaten the public.
Assault weapons that have been rendered permanently non-functional, and cannot be restored to a functioning state, are legal to possess Nonresidents transporting assault weapons through California[ edit ] There are protections under the federal Firearm Owners Protection Act for nonresidents traveling through California with firearms that meet the state's assault weapon criteria.
First, the weapon must be legal for the traveler to own under federal law and under the laws of his or her home state and the state of destination. Additionally, the weapon in question must be unloaded with the firearm and ammunition locked in separate cases and placed in an area of the vehicle that is not easily accessible, such as the trunk of a car or bed of a truck.
Finally, the traveler should traverse the state by the shortest route and make the minimum number of stops practicable. Other laws[ edit ] There are also numerous other laws, such as prohibition on possession of tracer ammunition and handgun armor-piercing ammunition. All rifles are normally exempt for the original owner if properly registered at the time of the acts which prohibited them. In addition, the law states that any weapon that is part of the AR series or AK series is also an assault weapon, regardless of manufacturer; this dates back to ban, and was confirmed in the Kasler v.
The court thus set some specific requirements for the "series" identification portion of the law in their ruling of Harrott v. Thus, only firearms specifically listed by exact combination of manufacturer and model name, or conforming to explicit exterior characteristics such as a pistol grip or folding stock in combination with a detachable magazine can be banned under current legislation.
Once it was realized the California Department of Justice CA DOJ had not updated the "Kasler list" in the five years after the Harrott decision, many Californians found they could legally download and possess AR and AK rifles not yet officially identified as "series" members. As of February , over 10, "off-list" receivers frames for such rifles have been legally imported to, and downloadd within, California.
The only requirement for these receivers are that the combination of make and model is not explicitly listed as banned, and as long as the owner does not add certain "characteristic features" turning the firearm into an assault weapon i.
These off-list rifles can also be used without a pistol grip, folding stock, or flash hider, in which case it is legal to own and use them with detachable magazines, including large-capacity magazines. This memo stated that once off-list "series" firearms are declared and registered as assault weapons, they will not be able to have characteristic features added or fixed magazines removed.
This is being challenged by pro-gun groups, since there is no criminal violation in the California Penal Code for adding or changing features to a legally acquired, registered assault weapon. On November 8, , San Francisco voters enacted Proposition H , a total ban on the manufacture, sale, transfer or distribution of firearms or ammunition in San Francisco, as well as a ban on the possession of handguns within the city by San Francisco residents excepting police officers, security guards and the like.
The ban did not prohibit possession of weapons other than handguns, nor did it prohibit residents of other cities from possessing handguns in San Francisco.
While this measure made San Francisco the third major U. Proposition H stated that handgun owners in San Francisco must turn over their handguns to the police by the end of March , have them confiscated, or move outside the city limits.
In June , Judge James Warren of the San Francisco County Superior Court struck down Proposition H, asserting that under California law local officials do not have the authority to ban handgun ownership by law-abiding citizens.
On January 9, , a California appellate court upheld Judge Warren's decision. In May , the Los Angeles City Council voted to draft a law prohibiting the possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines, sparking lawsuit threats from two gun rights organizations. The new ordinance requires city residents to "dispose, donate, or sell" any magazine capable of holding more than ten rounds within a proscribed period of time once the measure took effect.
