1 F I R E A R M S C O N T R A B A N D & C O N S E Q U E N C E S PUBLISHED BY THE L AW OFFICES OF BRUCE COLODNY Revised & Copyright 2013 GunLaw.com Federal and California laws provide harsh penalties for mere possession of some firearms, accessories and ammunition. Frequently encountered varieties of firearms contraband are mentioned in this article. Further limits on manufacture, importation, possession and usage of politically incorrect firearms and ammunition should be expected. CAUTION! The following examples are not comprehensive, and are not a substitute for legal advice. If you suspect, learn, or are told that you possess firearms, parts, accessories or ammunition that may be illegal, immediately consult a California attorney with significant experience in firearm laws and regulations. Although no attorney can advise you to destroy evidence of a crime, you have no duty to incriminate yourself. A qualified attorney may be able to help you legally dispose of contraband, particularly if it was innocently acquired. 1. Pistols And Revolvers That Chamber Shotgun Shells. California regards most modern handguns that chamber shotgun ammunition to be sawed off shotguns. The Thompson/Center single shot pistol with.45/.410 barrel and revolvers and single-shot or multi-barrel pistols with rifled barrels that chamber.410 cartridges are prohibited, even though there were no Federal objections to sale of these arms. Mere possession may be punished by up to three years in state prison. 2. Disguised Firearms And Containers. California prohibits devices that are not easily recognizable as firearms, and also items intended to conceal a firearm, that allows the gun to be fired. Prohibited devices include pen guns, knife pistols, pager guns, cell phone guns, belt buckle guns, and wallet guns. Mere possession may be punished as a felony with up to three years in state prison and for some items, Federal felony penalties may also apply. 3. Any Firearms Possessed If You Are A Prohibited Person.

2 If ordered to surrender firearms acquired while you were barred from gun ownership or if you become prohibited from possessing firearms that you legally acquired, consult a firearms attorney immediately. You do not forfeit your economic interest in firearms legally acquired but you may not have access to the firearms. Community property interest in firearms is not extinguished if one spouse becomes prohibited from gun ownership. NOTE: possession of ammunition is also prohibited and California bars possession of ammunition feeding devices such as clips, magazines and speed loaders. 4. Magazines Holding More Than Ten Cartridges. Since January 1, 2000, high capacity magazines may not be transferred within California, except to properly licensed firearms dealers. The dealer may sell these devices out of state or in state, for law enforcement use only. Importation or transfer of a high capacity magazine within California may be prosecuted as a felony. 5. Assault Weapons Not Registered In California. A person who just simply possesses an unregistered Assault Weapon may be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony and upon conviction, may be sentenced for up to three years imprisonment. Conviction for manufacturing, importing, selling or transporting unregistered Assault Weapons, may bring up to eight years in prison. The California Penal Code implies, and the California Department of Justice has taken the position that, arranged in advance, surrender of unregistered Assault Weapons to police or sheriffs results in immunity from prosecution Bmg Rifles Not Registered In California. Effective January 1, 2005, rifles chambered to fire the.50 BMG cartridge became subject to the California restrictions previously imposed on Assault Weapons and had to be registered on or before April 30, Failure to comply can result in the same criminal penalties imposed for Assault Weapon violations. 7. Folding Or Pistol Grip Stocks For Semi-Automatic Rifles And Shotguns. Assembly of such a stock to a firearm may result in being charged with manufacture of an Assault Weapon, a California felony. Ownership of a

3 folding stock or pistol grip stock and the semi-automatic firearm to which it applies, may also result in Assault Weapon prosecution. 8. Machine Guns, Short Barreled Rifles, Short Barreled Shotguns Or Smooth Bore Pistols Under Federal Law. Manufacture, sale and possession of these "gangster weapons" is regulated and taxed under the National Firearms Act (NFA) of NFA registration is also required for unserviceable machine guns, cannons and some other war souvenirs. Mere possession of an unregistered NFA weapon may result in a prison sentence of up to ten years. No amnesty has been offered to permit voluntary registration of NFA weapons since Lawful dispositions of unregistered NFA weapons are abandonment or forfeiture to a government agency but immunity from prosecution is not guaranteed. NFA restrictions do not apply to shotguns with barrels 18" or longer and an overall length of 26" or more, nor do NFA rules apply to rifles with barrels 16" or longer and an overall length of 26" or more. 9. Machine Guns, Short Barreled Rifles, Short Barreled Shotguns Or Smooth Bore Pistol Under California Law. Special permits may be obtained from the Department of Justice to possess machine guns and short-barreled rifles or shotguns, but permits are normally issued only for law enforcement or for motion picture or television production. Unlawful possession of a short-barreled rifle, shotgun, a smooth bore pistol or machine gun may be punished as a misdemeanor, or as a felony with a sentence of three years in state prison. A person convicted of misdemeanor machine gun possession may not own any firearm in California for ten years. California does not regulate possession of machine guns or cannons that are permanently unserviceable; however, there have been successful prosecutions for "constructive possession" where one person was alleged to have all the parts necessary to assemble a machine gun. California allows ownership of specific short-barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns and smoothbore pistols, which have been classified as Curios and Relics by the ATF and are owned in accord with Federal law. 10. Firearms And Ammunition Over.50 Caliber. Except for shotguns and "elephant guns", most firearms with a bore diameter greater than.50" are Destructive Devices under Federal law,

4 subject to the same NFA registration and transfer restrictions as machine guns. California law provides felony penalties for possession of firearms and ammunition greater than.60 caliber, except for shotguns and shotshells and a few big-bore sporting rifles and cartridges. 11. Tracer, Incendiary And Exploding Ammunition. Cartridges with tracer, incendiary, or exploding projectiles are Destructive Devices in California. Felony penalties apply to simple possession. The prohibition does not apply to tracer shotgun shells. 12. Handgun Ammunition Designed To Penetrate Metal Or Armor. Knowing possession may be prosecuted as a felony in California. 13. Over 20 Pounds Of Smokeless Gunpowder Or More Than One Pound Of Black Powder. Even if intended for use in sporting firearms, California provides felony penalties for possessing more than the stated amounts of gunpowder without special permits. 14. Grenade Or Rocket Launchers. Tube type grenade launchers that can fire antipersonnel cartridges, functioning rocket launchers and mortars are Destructive Devices under Federal law, subject to NFA restrictions and felony penalties. California provides felony penalties for possession of any rocket launcher or grenade launcher, whether tube type, cup type or spigot type. Flare launchers are generally exempted as pyrotechnic signaling devices, unless the owner also possesses anti-personnel ammunition that fits the device. 15. Machine Gun Parts And Conversion Kits. Federal and state machine gun penalties apply to possession of sufficient parts to assemble a machine gun or to parts designed and intended to convert a semi-automatic firearm to fire more than one shot with a single pull of the trigger. You may be prosecuted for possession of conversion parts even if you do not own the firearm for which they were designed. 16. Multiburst Trigger Activators.

5 Devices that increase the rate of fire of semi-automatic firearms by mechanically manipulating the trigger are prohibited in California. Possession may be punished as a felony with up to three years imprisonment. 17. Short Rifle Or Shotgun Barrels. Under Federal law, possession may result in felony prosecution if the person also possesses a firearm to which the barrel may be applied. Under California law, mere possession of a short rifle or shotgun barrel, including a Thompson/Center combination.45/.410 barrel, may result in a felony conviction with up to a three-year sentence. 18. Shoulder Stocks For Handguns. Under Federal law Possession may result in felony prosecution if the person also has a firearm to which the stock may be applied. Under California law possession of only the shoulder stock may result in a felony sentence of up to three years. Certain stocked handguns and handgun stocks formally classified by the ATF as Curios and Relics are exempt. 19. Firearm Silencers. Any device that measurably diminishes noise when a firearm is discharged may be considered a firearm silencer. Under Federal law, silencers and even a single silencer part are NFA weapons and felony penalties apply to unlicensed manufacture, transfer or possession. California allows manufacture, sale and possession of firearm silencers for law enforcement and military use only. 20. Sniper Scopes. Possession of a night vision telescope adapted to a firearm that operates through projection of infrared light is a misdemeanor in California. 21. Imitation Or Replica Firearms.

6 Transactions in realistic replicas of modern firearms in California may be subject to a fine of up to $10,000. Exceptions are provided for theatrical, educational, military and certain other uses.

Archer, Of Counsel to the Law Offices of Bruce Colodny on selected firearms law matters since Disclaimer: The information contained within, is subject to change as a result of future court decisions and/or new legislation.
