California Protect Yourself If The Government APPS Comes For Your Guns



Charlotte, NC --(  Attention residents of the City of Los Angeles and Orange County:

We recently learned that local law enforcement entities are conducting firearm confiscation raids in your area on behalf of the California Department of Justice, as part of its Armed Prohibited Persons System (“APPS”) program.  These raids are typically conducted without search warrants.

Be prepared!  While these raids are promoted by politicians as intended to disarm dangerous criminals, they actually more often target unsuspecting citizens who present no danger and have no idea that they are prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition.

Watch this video for background on APPS’s shortcomings and injustices, and this revealing video in review of a former DOJ Special Agent who formerly conducted APPS raids.

For an overview of how these confiscations are conducted, and information about your rights when subjected to one, read this memorandum.

If you are uncertain if you are prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition, check your eligibility by submitting a Personal Firearms Eligibility Check application to the California Department of Justice.

If you are prohibited from possessing firearms, contact an attorney to discuss how best to restore your rights and comply with the law.

If law enforcement shows up at your home asking about firearms:

  • Don’t talk!  Officers are trained to get people to make statements that provide “probable cause” to search and seize.  Try not to even open the door.
  • Instead, provide the officers with this flyer, or tell the officers that you assert your right to remain silent and want to have an attorney present (actually say those words).
  • Do NOT “consent” to a search of your person, possessions, or home.  Insist on a search warrant.  If they don’t have a warrant, refuse the search entirely and close the door.
  • Consult a lawyer immediately.

Armed Prohibited Persons System Refusal Notice


Confirm whether you may legally possess firearms and learn your rights!  Don’t take the rap for APPS!

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    1. Is there any end to the insanity that comes out of occupied Kalifornia? I wonder if they are coordinating thought leadership with similar would-be Constitution destroyers in New York.

    3. These raids were something that bloomberg wanted to do in NY, he has been pushing his agenda all over this country.

    4. Amazing that they can go door to door without any warrants and take your firearms or those firearms and ammo that is owned by a family member, even if it is in a locked safe or vault.

      They should go after the criminals who have outstanding warrants instead of law abiding firearms owners.

      Why don’t they get a warrant to search if they feel a person should not have any weapons?

      in discussion with Branco, Law of Self Defense discussing scribed document. You will get laughed at regarding the calling phone number.


      Like asking them to call you before they pull you over for DWI. Doesn’t work that way. @conservatarist Might recommend author remove that

    6. I actually would kill anyone who entered my property without a warrant,and then even if they had a warrant it would be a bad day for the person who tries to serve it to me,for the purpose of gun confiscation,i have no problem defending my property till the death,actually here in assachusetts I welcome the chance to try

      This has been coming for decades, since Wilson,,Obama is just the first administer of the punishment, eh? They will take the guns, with or without a fight. The time is short to preserve the freedoms left. They are destroying the middle class, that is the “Agenda”. WAKE

    8. Do you people seriously believe the State of Cal is coming for law abiding citizens guns? If you do maybe you should not possess them for being that stupid. I live in CA and the CADOJ is doing this only when a person has committed a crime or has been deemed as mentally ill and has registered weapons, AND did not turn their weapons in as directed by the courts.. These are people who are not allowed to own weapons… God why do all you gun nuts believe all the lies, rhetoric, and misinfornation.. STOP WATCHING FOX NEWS DUMMIES!!

    9. One woman was in a facility because of medication that caused her to feel out of sorts, and was released when her MD made adjustments to the Rx. This flagged her as a prohibited person.

      Next thing the CA APPS team arrives at her home and wanted all the firearms her husband had in his personal safe, they took them all along with all his ammo.

      He got his firearms back but they kept his ammo only after his lawyer got involved.

    10. california and new york are two communist states and more are becoming one this law needs to be stop now

    11. […] CA APPS Program – “Legalized Gun Confiscation” […]
