    This Bill was signed by our favorite governor earlier this year. And like myself, I'm sure others aren't familiar with how bad the bill really is!

    This bill was targeted mainly at AR's but do to the wording that was put into it, it made other weapons into AW'S! Certain guns that fell into the "other" category in long guns, like the M2 and 1919, now are considered AW's

    This bill would expand the definition of “assault weapon” to include a semiautomatic firearm that is not a rifle, pistol, or shotgun, that either does not have a fixed magazine but has any one of the attributes currently associated with assault weapons, as specified, that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, or that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.


    3 additions:
    1. Does not have a fixed magazine but has any of the attributes currently associated with assault rifles; OR
    2. has a fixed magazine with a capacity to accept more than 10 rounds; OR
    3. Has an overall length under 30".

    I have to check but I haven't heard of them opening up a registration period for owners of M2's and 1919's.

    Anyone that lives here and that's tried to buy either of these since the first of the year, were you able to or did you get shutdown?

    Yeah, don't know how or why it was.

    SB218 is the one that people need to pay attention to.

    The assault weapons registration period for the firearms affected by the new assault weapons laws has not open yet.
    CA DOJ BOF has also not released the proposed regulations that will govern this.
    Speculations are that in the next month or so, they will release the proposed regulations and then open the registration window on 01-01-2021.
    ^The registration window will close by 01-01-2022. [PC 30900(c)(1)]

    The assault weapons registration window will only be open to CA residents that have owned effected firearms, that meet the new definitions [PC 30515(a)(9),(10),(11)], from before 09-01-2020.

    Starting 09-01-2020, it is CA illegal (felony) to import, make, advertise for sale, or transfer those firearms within CA.

    Under these "definitions", wouldn't a Ruger 10/22 also qualify as an "AW"? It can take magazines that can hold up to 50 rounds and the magazine is NOT fixed. Soooo - - ?? o_O:confused:

    Nope. A Ruger 10/22 would not fall under the proposed changes. Please note that the Ruger 10/22 is not a "Centerfire" firearm.
