LONG BEACH, Calif. – -(AmmoLand.com)- 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.
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:
