The Golden State is considering anything without a “fixed magazine” the size of the pistol grip to be an assault weapon. The focus is primarily on those who build their own AR-15 style pistols.

Residents are then required to go through a number of crazy steps to make sure their firearm is in compliance:

1. In order to be legally registered, the firearm has to have been legally acquired on or before December 31, 2016.

2. Each gun owner would have to establish an account under the California Firearms Application Reporting System (CFARS). The following information must be provided:
        Full name
        Address
        Telephone number
        Date of birth
        Sex
        Height
        Weight
        Eye color
        Hair color
        Military identification number (if applicable)
        CA driver’s license or identification card number
        United States citizenship status
        Place of birth
        Country of citizenship
        Alien registration number (if applicable)

3. The following information would have to be provided on each firearm that falls under their definition of an “assault weapon”:
        Firearm type, make and model
        Caliber
        Firearm color
        Barrel length
        Serial number
        All identification marks firearm
        Country of origin/manufacturer
        The date the firearm was acquired
        The name and address of the individual from whom or business from which the firearm was acquired
        Clear digital photos of firearms listed on the application.
            One photo shall depict the bullet-button style magazine release installed on the firearm.
            One photo shall depict the firearm from the end of the barrel to the end of the stock if it is a long gun or the point   
            furthest from the end of the barrel if it is a pistol.
            The other two photos shall show the left side of the receiver/frame and right side of the receiver/frame.

4. If you’re like most families, you probably share your firearms amongst yourselves. If that’s the case, each family member who will be shooting the firearm must be registered as well. One person who have to be identified as the “primary registrant,” while others must register as “joint registrants.” To be a “joint registrant” you must live at the same address as the primary registrant. Everyone who is registered must be 19 by December 31, 2017.
Only direct family members (parent to child, child to parent, spouses) are allowed to be joint registrants.
Joint registrants have to provide proof of address showing they live with the primary registrant.

5. You’ve gone through the above steps but wait. You’re not done yet! The CA DoJ will provide each of your firearms with a specific serial number. You must then take your firearm and your new serial number and have an FFL engrave it on your firearm.

6. Once the serial number is engraved on your firearm, you have to provide pictures to the DoJ showing the serial number was  completed.

7. Pay a $15 fee per firearm to register your gun. There are no limits to the number of firearms that can be registered in a single transaction but the DoJ can deny your application for any reason.

There will probably be a lawsuit.  If Kolbe v Hogan  case (Maryland banned several forms of AR-15) does not make it to Supreme court this case might.  California's registration efforts will see the same results as New York and Connecticut.

New York

Low assault-weapon registration stats suggest low compliance with Gov. Cuomo’s landmark SAFE Act gun control law

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/ny-safe-act-weapons-registry-numbers-released-article-1.2267730

 Fewer than 45,000 assault-style weapons have been registered in New York state since a landmark gun control act took effect in 2013, state records released Tuesday show, suggesting that Empire State gun owners are largely ignoring one of the signature elements of the watershed legislation.

In the years since Gov. Cuomo signed the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, otherwise known as the NY SAFE Act, a total of 23,847 people have applied to register their assault-style weapons with the state, according to statistics provided by the New York State Police.


Connecticut

Untold Thousands Flout Gun Registration Law

Everyone knew there would be some gun owners flouting the law that legislators hurriedly passed last April, requiring residents to register all military-style rifles with state police by Dec. 31.

But few thought the figures would be this bad.

By the end of 2013, state police had received 47,916 applications for assault weapons certificates, Lt. Paul Vance said. An additional 2,100 that were incomplete could still come in.

That 50,000 figure could be as little as 15 percent of the rifles classified as assault weapons owned by Connecticut residents, according to estimates by people in the industry, including the Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation. No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps as high as 350,000.

And that means as of Jan. 1, Connecticut has very likely created tens of thousands of newly minted criminals — perhaps 100,000 people, almost certainly at least 20,000 — who have broken no other laws. By owning unregistered guns defined as assault weapons, all of them are committing Class D felonies.

Did they forget something  ::)

    A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

In most of the cases brought against AR-15 bans (New York, Connecticut and Maryland),  federal judges refuse to apply strict Strict scrutiny to 2nd amendment cases.

Strict scrutiny is a form of judicial review that courts use to determine the constitutionality of certain laws.  For a court to apply strict scrutiny, the legislature must either have significantly abridged a fundamental right with the law's enactment or have passed a law that involves a suspect classification.

Finally some good news for California gun owners.  The California's DOJ regulations for Bullet Button AR-15s were rejected by Office of Administrative Law.

Another CRPA/NRA Win: Politicians’ Proposed “Assault Weapon” Regulations Rejected

On Monday, June 26, the Office of Administrative Law formally rejected DOJ’s proposed regulations for the registration of newly classified “assault weapons,” which go far and above what is necessary by creating over 40 new definitions and improperly re-classifying certain firearms as “assault weapons.” If approved, California gun owners would have been subject to burdensome and excessive requirements in order to register firearms equipped with “bullet buttons” as required under California law.

CRPA and NRA have filed a lawsuit against the Attorney General of California, Xavier Becerra, which challenges California's "Assault Weapon" burdensome regulation described in my first post.

Note California Dept of Justice is still processing registration forms so the number below will probably increase.   The good news is that it seems that the majority of Calfornia gun owners are following in the footsteps of New York and Connecticut gun owners and deciding non-compliance is the way to go.

Exclusive: Public Records Prove California Gun Registration Was a Total Disaster

https://gunsamerica.com/blog/exclusive-public-records-prove-california-gun-registration-was-a-total-disaster/

Quote
New California law required owners of certain semi-automatic rifles fitted with “bullet buttons” to register their firearms with the Department of Justice before July 1. GunsAmerica submitted a California DOJ public records request to determine how many individuals had registered, and we received a response this week.

A grand total of 6,213 individuals successfully registered 13,519 “assault weapons” before the deadline, according to Deputy Attorney General Robert D. Wilson. That number does not include registrations that, like Jacobson’s, have been held up, but Jacobson still says he’s “stunned that the number is so low.”
