How do I register my bullet button firearm with DOJ?
Per the new law, if you have a firearm with any of the evil features that will now make your gun an "assault weapon" by CA definition, you must either register it as an assault weapon with DOJ or remove all features that make it an assault weapon. If you choose to register your firearm, it will be done through the California reporting information system (CRIS). You are required to register your weapon prior by 06/30/2018.

Gov. Brown Takes Action on Gun Control Bills
The National Shooting Sports Foundation is extremely disappointed that Gov. Brown today chose to sign into law these highly restrictive and unneeded gun control measures, all of which will affect law-abiding Californians while doing nothing to stop the criminal misuse of firearms. By acting within 24 hours after being sent these bills, and not allowing the public to voice their opinions in order to depart for his European vacation, the governor compounded the miscarriage of legislative process and procedure while demonstrating disdain for Californians who now face laws that clearly infringe on their Constitutional rights.
Gov. Brown SIGNED the following bills into law:
- AB 1135 (Levine) and SB 880 (Hall) Firearms: assault weapons - Expands the definition of assault weapons based on whether a semiautomatic firearm has a detachable magazine, banning thousands of popular firearms.
- SB 1235 (de Leon) Ammunition - Requires authorization to purchase ammunition and track what and how much ammunition each person buys, creating a database of ammunition purchasers.
- SB 1446 (Hancock) Firearms: magazine capacity - Makes it illegal to possess magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds no matter how long a person has owned them.
- AB 1511 (Santiago) Firearms: lending - Makes it illegal to loan a firearm to a person who is personally known to you (except for family members with restrictions).
- AB 1695 (Bonta) Firearms: false reports - Creates a 10-year prohibition on owning firearms for someone convicted of falsely reporting a lost or stolen firearm.
