So you're basically talking about Maybe 3% of the population when It's all said and done. Kiss atleast one percent goodbye when they see the jump in prices.
The manufacturers will look at that and weigh it against the extra costs to manufacture ca models as well as the time lost for retooling during which they could be selling to more profitable states and they'll say the same thing I do.
Fu#* California.

Just like Massachusetts.
In mass the only guns that have that trouble are with handguns, right? Rifles don't have to go through the same consumer safety process like handguns, right? as long as a rifle doesn't have more than 2 features its fine. And there are still tons of companies that are really good about MA compliance.

Yes. But we miss out on alot of guns. Both handguns and rifles. Many manufactures have written the state off. You can't blame them. It's costs in the area of $10k-$30k just to do the testing and the attorney generals office can still tell you to go screw. Also if any change is made you have to start all over, whether it is a trigger change or just a different color.
I can get a gp100 but can't get the Wiley clapp. Pisses me off.

I think it has an internal magazine that can be loaded by separating the upper and lower.

This state is such BS.


Honestly if I owned a gun company, or really anything involving firearms, I would tell the state to go piss off and I wouldn't offer a single product here.

If every single company did this, sure it would suck or the gun owners here a LOT, but it would be a big middle finger to the state legislature. And they would lose a lot of revenue. Not to mention, if all firearms companies did this, eventually it would get so bad here for gun people that a huge number would pack up and leave.

Thousands of good citizens and their money with them would be gone.

Of course, on the flip side, Kalifornia would just make up for this by granting citizenship to all illegals.

F*ck this state.
