California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations by C.D Michel [PDF]

Updated to cover all the new laws passed during the 2015 California legislative session, the Third Edition of California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations explores, explains, and summarizes all of the new and existing federal and state firearm regulations that will affect California gun owners in 2016. In this long awaited updated to the most comprehensive legal guide to California’s firearm laws, renowned firearms lawyer C.D. Michel draws on over twenty-years of experience to educate gun owners about California’s complex firearms laws and the potential legal “traps” that firearm owners often unintentionally fall into. To help you easily access all of the information in this book, the Third Edition has been resized, reformatted, and reorganized into a slightly larger, but thinner, book. The tables have also been enlarged to make it easier to read, access, and understand California’s firearm laws. 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 that apply in California. And there are hundreds of administrative regulations, local ordinances, and California Department of Justice, Bureau of Firearms written and unwritten policies that also apply. With all of the overlapping regulations, it’s no wonder that confusion runs rampant among California gun owners, police, prosecutors, and judges.
