My son in law has a RAW that he bought when they were "blowing out" $400. ARs for $650 right before the ban. He and my daughter are moving to a location where he won't be able to secure the rifle, he was storing it in a room mates safe at their soon to be former residence.
He has asked if he could store the rifle in my safe, providing a copy of his paperwork from the DOJ regarding the RAW and an affidavit from him stating that the unit is in my possession for the expressed purpose of safe storage only.
Does anybody have any out there have experience w/ this situation or KNOW about the legality of storage of a RAW for another person for the purpose of safe storage?
OR would he be better off stripping and selling the parts and surrendering the lower ( I suggested in 2 pieces ) to the authorities?
The rifle in question is a franken gun built on an Oly arms lower.w/ a no-name upper.

I would read the following:
CHAPTER 2.3. ROBERTI-ROOS ASSAULT WEAPONS CONTROL ACT OF 1989
See Section 12285
(c) A person who has registered an assault weapon or registered a .50 BMG rifle under this section may possess it only under any of the following conditions unless a permit allowing additional uses is first obtained under Section 12286:
(1) At that person's residence, place of business, or other property owned by that person, or on property owned by another with the owner's express permission.
(2) While on the premises of a target range of a public or private club or organization organized for the purpose of practicing shooting at targets.
7. I have a registered assault weapon. If I travel outside of California with the firearm, can I bring the firearm back into California?
Yes, as a long as it is transported in accordance with Penal Code sections 12285 and 12026.1. These sections of law may be accessed on the DOJ Bureau of Firearms Website's Online Dangerous Weapons Control Laws.
8. I am a firearms dealer. If I remove the characteristic(s) that make a firearm an assault weapon, can I sell it?
Yes, but only if the firearm is an assault weapon that is defined as such only by its characteristics, and only if you have registered it as an assault weapon with the DOJ. (Penal Code section 12276.1, SB 23 - This section of law may be accessed on the DOJ Bureau of Firearms Website's Online Dangerous Weapons Control Laws). THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ORIGINAL ROBERTI-ROOS ASSAULT WEAPONS OR AK and AR-15 SERIES WEAPONS.
9. Are there any restrictions for the use of registered assault weapons?
Yes. A person who has a registered assault weapon may possess it only under certain conditions as specified in Penal Code section 12285. This section of law may be accessed on the DOJ Bureau of Firearms Website's Online Dangerous Weapons Control Laws.
