Default California Gun Laws

I am soon moving to California (darn) and I am in a conundrum. With the severity of the CA gun laws I'm not sure whether to sell my guns before I move, hide them under the horizon, or comply with the laws and register them (and subject them to confiscation). The other problem is none of my mags will comply with CA law. And with the new laws going through the legislature it appears nothing will comply with the law. Any suggestions other than "don't move to California?" I don't really have a choice in that.

Condolences on the loss of your freedoms. You might get more specific responses in the CA state subforum.

FWIW, I think 1911's are still mostly Kali Kosher.


Not recommending this, but I will never register my firearms, regardless of applicable laws.

Default Cali gun laws ????

Well friend... Move to North Carolina instead.
Seriously though... If you have trusted kin or friends where you are, leave the guns with them to take care of... at least until you can figure out the local laws and whether or not you can make them comply with the (*!&^%$@) laws there. Regardless of what you decide, the LAST thing I would suggest is admitting to ownership and registration..... It's a real pickle to be in and I feel for you.

It might help if you listed your favorite firearms that you own. Maybe some of them could be modified to comply (smaller mags)?

If you use a magazine which is more than 10 rounds for defensive purposes you basically become an instant criminal. Same with unregistered weapons.

I'm not going to tell you to break the law. Buy a compliant magazine for each gun and register the one you will defend your home with. That's my advice.

Reminds me of another good quote for this.


"There are just laws and there are unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that an unjust law is no law at all... One who breaks an unjust law must do it openly, lovingly...I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and willingly accepts the penalty by staying in jail to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the very highest respect for law."

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from Letters from a Birmingham Jail

If you have someone whom you trust enough you can keep them stored out of state. No law that says you can't own them, just that you can't posses them. Also check out calguns.net they have a lot of info about all the laws in this crappy state.

I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.

There are a number of place in Arizona that store guns for California residents. There are some in Yuma and Kingman. You will have to return to Arizona to shoot anyway.
