Second Amendment advocates were able to get the state to grudgingly hand over the Department of Justice’s proposed rules on assault weapons and bullet buttons.

Attorneys working on behalf of the California Rifle and Pistol Association and the Firearms Policy Coalition were able to obtain the proposed 60-page regulatory change on Thursday following public records requests.

The state hasn’t released the proposed regulations to the public, submitting them to the California Office of Administrative Law as “file and print only” even though residents are facing an end of the year registration deadline to abide by the yet-to-be established rules.

Among the regulations in the mammoth retooling is an online application process for those registering guns. Users will have to create an account at the California Firearms Application Reporting System and provide personal information.

Requirements for those submitting newly considered assault weapons to DOJ will have to upload four clear digital photos of the firearm including of the magazine release, of each side of the receiver and of the barrel. Those producing homemade firearms will have to send in photos of the now-mandated DOJ-supplied serial number after it has been permanently applied to the gun.

Online applications will cost $15 and if the fee is not paid, the registration will not be processed.

Other changes include a host of updated legal definitions for what now constitutes an assault weapon and how they function following the adoption of new laws last year.

The gun rights groups advise they are still digesting the new rules and will take it from there, with Brandon Combs of the FPC telling they will proceed with “filing a new federal civil rights lawsuit challenging the State’s ban on ‘assault weapons.’”

Attorneys for the CRPA and National Rifle Association will be hosting a free live webinar on May 25 at 12-noon pm PT to help California gun owners understand the DOJ’s proposal.

Both organizations this month announced lawsuits against the state over the total ban of what California considers large capacity magazines, those capable of holding more than 10 cartridges.

We are sad that this is what California has become.  Here at Cross Armory we have done our best to engineer the fastest, easiest and most reliable setup for your AR, that keeps you in line with the new laws…but just barely 😉

The new regs fall flat on their face, because we engineered our SafeMag and Quick Pins system to meet every letter of their new law, while allowing us to continue to use our AR’s even more effectively than before.  So we say stand tall, keep your gun, keep your evil features, keep your 2nd amendment rights, and NEVER, EVER REGISTER!

We are and continue to be law abiding citizens, and we will be compliant with all our laws, but we will not do it their way, we will make our own way…legally. See what we have built

Here is a summary of what’s going on from our friend TheDailyShooter, he eats, breaths and sleeps CA Guns.

    You guys rock…! This is the best means to stay legal and keep one’s rifle. The cad demo is outstanding! The engineering is top notch, brilliant and ingenious.

    Everyone should be truly indebted to your resourcefulness !

    Thank you so much!

    So we cannot transfer an Assault Rifle, unless there is a joint ownership? They are trying to passively take the firearms. I am working on getting compensation from the State since my AR was taken, because I had a forward magwell grip, telescoping stock, and scope….. I almost received a felony, instead the judge gave me 30 days of community service and destroyed my rifle. I have not been able to find a lawyer that wants less than $5k to fight this. NRA hasn’t even responded for over a year about this. This was Nov 2015. SMH I hate Ca laws.
