Don’t Become An Accidental Criminal

Having firearms for self-defense, sport, and hunting is your individual constitutional right. But exercising that right carries extraordinary responsibilities. Along with your responsibility to know and follow safety procedures, you also have an obligation to comply with all applicable state, federal, and local laws. The 2nd Edition of California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations explores and explains the California firearms laws that affect firearm owners.

There are over 800 California state statutes regulating the manufacture, distribution, sale, possession, and use of firearms. There are thousands of overlapping federal laws regulating firearms. And there are hundreds of administrative regulations, local ordinances, and California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms’ written and unwritten policies that also apply to California gun owners. With all the overlapping regulations, it’s no wonder that confusion runs rampant among California gun owners, as well as among police, prosecutors, and judges.

On top of this already byzantine regulatory scheme, on January 1, 2012, California’s firearms laws were completely reorganized and re-numbered. Because of the complexity of the laws, inadvertent violations by well-intentioned good people are increasingly common. In the politicized legal environment of California “gun-control” laws, the consequences of even an inadvertent violation can be severe.

To protect yourself, you need to know the law. This book will help. Don’t become an accidental criminal! The 2nd Edition of California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations tells you how to legally buy, own, transport and possess firearms; when it is legal to use deadly force; and how to – or whether you can – get your firearms or firearm rights back if they are taken away. The book warns about common legal “traps” and troublesome “gray areas” that California firearm owners often unintentionally fall into, and ensures that those who are subject to these complex firearms laws can avoid violating them. This book also helps educate those tasked with enforcing the law about firearms laws so they can avoid mistaken arrests and prosecutions.
