On Wednesday, January 31, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) officially posted notice to their proposed regulations regarding the serialization of home-built firearms. The proposal is a result of the recently enacted changes to California law pursuant to Assembly Bill No. 857 (the so-called “ghost gun” bill), adopted in 2016 as part of the other “Gunmageddon” bills.
The NRA and CRPA attorneys are currently reviewing the proposal, and will soon prepare and submit a comprehensive comment letter. In the meantime, a public hearing on the proposal has been scheduled on March 19, 2018, from 10 AM to 12 PM in the Resources Building Auditorium, located at 1416 9th Street, Sacramento, California. We encourage all of our members who are able to attend to voice their opinion on these regulations.
If you are unable to attend in person, you can still submit written comments no later than 5 PM on March 19, 2018, to the following:
Bureau of Firearms
Division of Law Enforcement
Department of Justice
P.O. Box 160487
Sacramento, CA 95816-0487
Phone: (916) 227-7622
