California DOJ Proposes “Emergency” Regulations Regarding Magazines Capable of Holding More than 10 Rounds but None for "Assault Weapons"

California DOJ Proposes “Emergency” Regulations Regarding Magazines Capable of Holding More than 10 Rounds but None for "Assault Weapons"

Early this morning, the California Department of Justice provided notice of proposed regulations relating to magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. Included are changes to the requirements for obtaining and maintaining a “large-capacity magazine permit,” new regulations addressing so called “large-capacity” magazine conversion kits, new regulations on how individuals must “permanently alter” a magazine to accept no more than 10 rounds, and new regulations regarding the transfer and possession of multi-tube shotgun designs.
               
The regulations have been submitted under California’s emergency rulemaking process, which means they could become effective in just 17 days.

We are currently reviewing the proposed regulations and will be providing a detailed analysis of their effect shortly. In the meantime, we encourage all of our members to participate in the rule-making process by submitting their comments during the 5-day public comment period, expected to begin on December 21.

Currently, the NRA and CRPA are still awaiting the DOJ's proposed regulations that will accompany SB 880 and AB 1135, which redefine the definition of an "assault weapon" in California. The NRA and CRPA have submitted a letter about DOJ's failure to act in a timely manner for this process.

In addition to monitoring the new regulations that are being proposed by the DOJ, NRA and CRPA attorneys are preparing multiple lawsuits to undo the Gunmageddon bill package and Proposition 63.  If successful, these new burdensome regulation proposals will be moot. 

Where We Go From Here 

The NRA and CRPA have been fighting to preserve your freedom to protect yourself and your family in California for decades. With Donald Trump's victory in the presidential election and the potential for a strong pro-Second Amendment Supreme Court, it is time to go on the offensive with lawsuits challenging the ill-conceived laws created by the Legislature and Proposition 63.    

WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE PLANNING? 

  • Legal challenges to the bans on so-called "large capacity magazines" and "assault weapons", as well as to the most egregious aspects of the new ammunition restrictions.
  • Monitoring CA DOJ’s proposed regulations implementing the new laws and challenging any improper ones in court.
  • Continuing to grow the grassroots structure that was created during the election year in counties across the state, which will allow for more influence at the local and state levels of government. 

In order to put our plan into action, we need your financial support. After a very expensive election cycle, NRA’s and CRPA’s war chests desperately need to be refilled so we can capitalize on our national victory and execute our plan.     

Please help make this happen today!  Your tax-deductible donation to The CRPA Foundation will help us win this battle! 

The NRA and CRPA legal teams consist of highly regarded civil rights attorneys, legislative advocates, and scholars who have what it takes to maximize the potential for victory in California and across the nation.
