LONG BEACH, Calif. – -( More than two dozen new gun laws were passed during the 2017 and 2018 legislative sessions and the California Department of Justice (“DOJ”) has issued several new regulations and policies that impact California gun owners. There are now over 800 California state statutes regulating the manufacture, distribution, sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition, as well as hundreds of administrative regulations, local ordinances, and written and unwritten policies. And there are thousands of federal laws regulating firearms that apply in California.

California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations (2019 Sixth Edition)

The simple-to-read 2019 sixth edition of the California Gun Laws book clears up the confusion in plain English. Updated to cover the laws set to take effect in 2019, it simplifies and explains the law in a way that’s easy for anyone to understand.

If you have a gun in California, this book may keep you out of jail.

As Steve Cooley, the former District Attorney for the County of Los Angeles says:

“This is a must-have reference book for police, prosecutors, judges, defense attorneys, and gun owners. California’s gun laws are far more complicated than even the professionals realize.” ~ Steve Cooley, Los Angeles County District Attorney (Ret.)

The new edition of the book includes sections covering:

  • The important new registration and engraving requirements for self-manufactured or self-assembled firearms
  • The new training requirements for those seeking a license to carry a concealed firearm (“CCW”)
  • The lifetime firearm prohibition against anyone committed to a mental health facility on a 5150 hold more than once in a single year period
  • The expansion of liability against individuals associated with supplying tear gas to minors
  • The lifetime firearm prohibition against anyone convicted of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or significant other
  • The evolution of DOJ’s stance on federally compliant IDs (REAL IDs) and how they affect your ability to acquire firearms
  • DOJ’s proposed regulation attempting to expand the application of the “assault weapon” definitions applicable only to registration
  • The requirement to register your “bullet-button” firearms as “assault weapons” before July 1, 2018 and what to do if you failed to do so
  • The new law prohibiting the transfer of any firearm to anyone under 21 years old
  • The law enfolding “bump stocks” and other aftermarket accessories into the legal definition of “multiburst trigger activator”
  • The law expanding the firearm storage options for vehicles that do not have trunks
  • What can be expected when DOJ begins to conduct background checks for ammunition purchases

The book’s author, C.D. “Chuck” Michel, is a nationally-renowned firearms law attorney. Mr. Michel has litigated hundreds of firearms cases since 1991 and represented not only the National Rifle Association and the California Rifle & Pistol Association, but also thousands of individuals charged with violating California’s confusing gun laws.

Wait for the 2020 book of gun laws, when you open the cover it will say “ALL FIREARMS & WEAPONS PROHIBITED”


To a degree it already does. Just saying.


Not being from the “wrong” side of the Colorado River, I would like to know what is a bullet button!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A bullet button is a device used to remove a magazine in a semiautomatic rifle, replacing the magazine release with a block which forces the user to remove the magazine by using a tool as opposed to his or her finger. This allows the rifle to comply with parts of California’s firearms laws.

We live in AZ and love to visit San Diego. Not in a year or two. I will not cross the river. Maybe that fault will someday give way, flush those commies into the Pacific.


And we, the conservatives thank you for your support.

I don’t think Horace Greeley would say “Go West Young Man” if he saw what has happened to California.


The only person that says “Go west young man” is RuPaul or his friends.

And that is exactly what these liberal jackasses are doing. They cannot stand all the fees, laws, regulations and Mexicans coming in so they move–and then the idiots vote exactly like they did in the PRC!


I live in CA and this is one messed up state. These fires are purging the system for a reason. I think the powers that be upstairs have had enough of this crap.

This is a high point with them putting this book out, they have moved from their emission controls to total gun control, just think most of the current emission control started in Calif, the manufactures gave up trying to fight them, so now all vehicles produced have to have Calif certification for all states, who says one state can’t change it for all, Calif has in the past, so watch what comes out of there as it is only a pray lude to what they can get done to manufacturing and the Second Amendment!!!!!!

Robin M

You’re right. Don’t forget the ban on plastic straws, too.
