In Novemberthe California Department of Justice officially notified the public of its intent to adopt new regulations defining certain terms used to determine whether a firearm is an “assault weapon” under California law.  If adopted, the latest regulations would incorporate regulations relating specifically to the registration process for “assault weapons,” that are currently being challenged by NRA and CRPA in state court, and improperly apply them to the identification of “assault weapons” for enforcement purposes.   

If you are unable to attend the public hearing, written comments must be submitted no later than 5:00 PM on January 8, 2018, to:
