Firearm ownership, possession, and use are individual constitutional rights that carry extraordinary responsibilities. Along with your responsibility to know and follow safety procedures, you also have increased responsibility to comply with all applicable state, federal, and local laws. Because of the complexity of these laws, inadvertent gun law 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. This book explores, explains, and summarizes the firearm laws affecting firearm owners in California, and warns about common legal “traps” that California firearm owners often unintentionally fall into.
When can you use deadly force? Who can possess a gun? When are you permitted to have a gun? Where can you have a gun? How must a gun be possessed? How do you get your gun rights back? Which guns are banned? How do you get your guns back from the police? Can you carry a gun in public? This book answers these questions, and many others.
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 Justice Firearms Bureau written and unwritten policies that also apply. With all the overlapping regulations, its no wonder that confusion runs rampant among California gun owners, as well as among police, prosecutors, and judges.
This book will inform those who are subject to California’s complex firearms laws so that they can avoid inadvertently violating them, and will educate those tasked with enforcing those laws so they can avoid mistaken arrests and prosecutions.
California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations explores, explains, and covers the firearm laws affecting firearm owners, and particularly warns about legal traps and troublesome “gray areas.” The California Gun Owner’s Guide tells you how to legally buy, own, transport and possess firearms, properly use deadly force, and how to – or whether you can – get your firearms or firearm rights back if they are taken away.
Gun owners have increasing legal responsibilities. There are thousands of federal laws and regulations regulating firearms. On top of these, California state statutes regulating firearm manufacture, distribution, sale, possession, and use now number over 700! That does not include administrative regulations, local ordinances, and regulatory agency written and unwritten policies. On top of the already byzantine regulatory scheme, on January 1, 2012 California firearm laws were completely reorganized and re-numbered. These revisions should eventually make understanding the law easier. But it will take some getting used to. With all the overlapping rules, it is no wonder confusion is rampant among California gun owners. Not surprisingly, inadvertent gun law violations by well-intentioned good people are increasingly common. And in the politicized environment of California firearms laws, the consequences of even an inadvertent violation can be severe. The situation makes the publication of California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations particularly timely. This comprehensive book on California firearms law explains the confusing laws affecting firearm owners in California.
Written by C.D. “Chuck” Michel, a firearms attorney with 20 years of experience representing the National Rifle Association (NRA) and California Rifle & Pistol Association (CRPA), as well as firearm manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and gun owners, California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations is an invaluable resource.
Michel has been litigating civil and criminal firearm cases since 1991, many of which were high profile and attracted state and national media attention. His clients include the NRA, the CRPA, FFLGuard, gun manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and individual gun owners. He has represented thousands of individuals and companies charged with violating California’s confusing firearms laws. He has litigated hundreds of firearms cases involving constitutional issues, including Second Amendment challenges, in both state and federal trial and appellate courts. “Professor” Michel also teaches classes in Firearms Law and Law Practice Management as an Adjunct Professor at Chapman University School of Law in Orange, California.
