Long Beach, CA -( California has some of the most confusing and complicated firearms laws in the nation. And now more laws are on the way!!!

The law firm of Michel & Associates, P.C., is again partnering with Shooters-Edge, Inc. and MV Tactical & Firearms Training, Inc. to present “Gun Law for Gun Owners” at the Angeles Shooting Range in Lake View Terrace, California on May 2, 2015.
