I got a new job in Santa Clara, California and will be moving in a couple weeks. As I understand the law, I will not be able to import my post-ban AR-15. I can't tell whether I can disassemble it into the upper and lower receivers and import the pieces that way. I also can't find anything about whether I can take my .223 FMJ ammunition and 30-round pre-ban magazines with me. Does anyone know what California law says?

If I find out I can't take it with me or don't know for sure, I will probably leave it with my father-in-law in Texas, but I would prefer to take it along.

You can bring the upper and the ammunition. You cannot bring your 30 round magazines, nor any type of lower (other than a FAB10).

No offense to those of you who live in California, but I'll mark this down as reason number 1,293,404 why I wouldn't ever want to live there.

If you have family in texas leave the AR and get an M1A.308 as I beleive they are still legal there,a good 1911 and shotgun and you should be set.althogh you could always move to a neighboring stae like arizona and comute although I dont know how far away santa clara is from the nearest friendly state,I also heard they just banned .50 cal rifles there as well.

I have recently moved out of California. I can tell you what I know.
Assault rifles of any kind are out of the question. Regardless of the sunset of the AWB. No matter what.
I would leave them in Texas if you wish to keep them.
I have a Sig Sauer P226 9MM that I bought over 13 years ago in CA. 7 years ago I could not sell it to anyone nor could I give it to my son. The only way I could sell it would be to turn in the 15 round mags that came with it and buy new 6 round mags. I learned this first hand from three gun dealers at that time. Shotguns can only hold three rounds. So any mags for rifles would also be limited as well. I don’t know the exact number but I can safely say it would be a lot less than 30.

But this information is what I know. For current and correct info call these people for the information you need.

You can bring all of that, EXCEPT the AR lower receiver, ever. The only lowers legal in Kali are the FABs. The mags are yours, but since you can't bring the lower, they aren't needed.

Santa Clara is going to be alot different than Texas.

You can probably bring a sling shot and a bb gun but I am not really sure on that. Might have to register the bb gun
Link Posted: 1/6/2005 8:39:32 PM EDT
Wow - they must be paying you VERY well.

I'm not sure how much it would take to get me there, but it at least $500,000 a year, after taxes. Having to put up with that state's bull$h!t restrictions would be expensive.

No high capacity sling shots though.

You can have a high cap sling shot but it can only shoot feathers.
Did you know that squirt guns are next on the to be banned list??

also, the bb gun cannot have a bayonet lug or collapsable stock. These items turn said bb gun into a street-sweeping death machine, spraying hundreds of bb's per minute from the hip.

Unless your Sig is some sort of specialized thing with a threaded barrel or a LE only model, this is not true. You can legally sell a handgun such as the P226. However if it has larger than 10 round magazines you cannot sell the magazines with it. Sell it without the magazines and let the buyer buy his/her own 10 (actually they are 9 in the case of the p226) magazines. Never heard of 6 round mags for the p226

I'd have to get payed about $5 million per year to work in CA, so I could commute by helicopter from a neighboring state. IMO, trading my rights for money isn't an option, but I've never been put in that situation and hopefully never will be.

Santa Clara is in the "heart" of our once Republican gun carrying state. Now they are the heart of the warm fuzzy, non gun carrying, panty wearing, spotted owl protecting, liberal *&^#%$ $%*&# &&%%$$##, well you know the rest. I am here to tell you you are in for a MAJOR WAKE UP CALL. DO NOT BRING your AR-15, or the magazines. It is a four year felony in this state. hotgun Be prepared for high gas prices, even higher real estate prices, and a crazy list of new laws. STAY OUT of Berkley, aka "Bezerkly" as they are trying to get the Cops there to paint thier guns pink so they won't upset the public. If this gives you an idea.

With a name like 'BostonTeaParty', I'm surprised you'd move to Kalifornia. I live next door in NV and, believe me, it's like night and day.

Good luck to you.

So if you had already purchased any assult weapons before the law took place in Calif can you still keep them? providing you were a resident at the time of purchase.
Link Posted: 1/7/2005 10:03:30 AM EDT
Only if you registered the weapon with CAL DOJ by the end of the filing deadline.

My rights don't come from a constitution or any government, they come from God, so it's not like California or the U.S. Congress can take them away.

I've lived in California before, and the state has plenty of good people. It's not like they're going to steal my soul when I'm not looking.

I could triple my take home pay today by going back to work for an over the road trucking company. Unfortunately, that would involve going to states that do not respect my rights. I am unwilling to have my rights violated any more than they are now. If it were not for family, I wouldn't even live in this state, let alone move to a friggin prison like PRK. I wish you good fortune sir. I do hope that it is worth it to you.

A little off topic, but-

I grew up right in the same area where you are moving.

Other then the gun laws, and a bunch of other crazy stuff, its a nice place to live.

Even if you were able to bring in evil guns, you will still get allot of evil looks and people talking about your guns behind your back at the range. Last time I was home on leave and went to the range, allot of people were asking about my stuff, even my M1A. Just find another segment of the gun hobby and go with that; Collect WWII guns or something like that.

That whole area is one big suburb really. The whole San Jose area is very safe for a city its size.

Nice weather, an hour to a big city (San Francisco), in 30 minutes you can drive to virgin redwood forests and hike all day without seeing a soul, drive another 30 minutes you can be at the beach, ALLOT of stuff to do. Its wonderful.

As people mentioned, housing prices are very high. I think its around $2K a month for something decent; Thats not even a single family home in a good area either . Expect to have to make a long commute. Morgan Hill and the Gilroy area (30-60 mins south) are a nice place to live.

Go to this website and make yourself sick.....

Luckily I stocked-up on ARs and the like before the first state-wide "assault rifle" ban hit here in 1989. It really sucks now. We now have a new law banning .50 cal rifles.

I'm sorry, but the whole place is a nightmare. Rights are gone. The cities sprawl and sprawl and sprawl at a ravenous rate. The hive mind is deafening and the social structure is revolting.

I really, really recommend NOT moving there.

You probably won't need your AR15, at
least not for self defense. I'm sure that after
all of those draconian firearm laws were enacted,
the state is crime free.

You might want to invest in hippy repellant, though.
