  • Avid Gun Owner moving to California for Federal law enforcement Job

    I was looking for advice on whether or not I should be worried about moving to California since I do own a lot of weapons. I am coming from Georgia and I am a federal law enforcement employee. Does the strict California laws still apply to law enforcement as well as I do intend to still purchase and shoot my weapons?

    If you have an AR 15, buy a Kali Key for it. All the Kali Key does is convert an AR 15 into a bolt action rifle, so it shouldn't be subject to California's AR laws. As far as Handguns are concerned I believe you have to register them, but I don't believe they crack down on handgun characteristics.

      I would recommend reading this from the CA DOJ website and/or consulting a lawyer if you have anything California considers an assault rifle. Or convert them into a featureless rifle. Will you be carrying under LEOSA or with statutory authority from your agency? If it's just under LEOSA then definitely get PLI, if it's agency authority then PLI is highly recommended.

        You can’t bring things into CA and claim they are duty weapons, unless your agency provides documentation for each one.

          Interesting questions. Thought provoking, actually.

          Should California state law apply equally to all people in California? My gut says yes, and my intellect agrees.

          Under our system of government all of the powers and authorities of the government are those delegated by the people. If the people have no right to keep and bear arms (or certain firearms, or certain magazines, or whatever) then the people cannot delegate such authority to the government.

          I could easily cite chapter and verse on the history of our nation and laws, but doing so would be utterly lost on California government officials, and probably on many of the fruits, nuts, flakes, and associated idiots living there who seem ready to surrender every vestige of liberty in exchange for whatever their kind and benevolent politicians decide should be allowed in their "safe places".

          I will leave it at that and wait for others to weigh in with their thoughts and opinions.

            There are plenty of LE jobs in GA and the wages for those jobs are starting to go up. I wouldn't go to California if I wanted to keep my gun collection and still be able to carry, hunt with with them and or shoot them at the range.

            Good luck.

              There are pretty much zero LE exemptions for firearms here in CA for personally owned weapons...the main thing that is different for LE is the magazine limit doesn't apply and you can buy 'off roster' handguns....that's about it

              Also (unless this has changed ) CA does NOT recognize Feds as LE agents as far as CA gun laws are concerned for the laws that govern private purchase/ownership of firearms....IE 'safe' handgun list, magazine limits ect

                My suggestion would be to leave all mag fed SA rifles at home in your free state for when you decide to flee this little slice of socialist paradise

                Of the 30 or so that work in my particular unit, there isn't a single one us that has any intention whatsoever of staying in this state after retirement
