# May assault weapons still be registered?
The assault weapon registration period has ended. The DOJ is no longer accepting assault weapon registration forms.

# Where can I get registration forms?
If you are party to a criminal case involving possession of an assault weapon prior to January 1, 2002, and if you qualify to register that assault weapon in order to reduce the offense to an infraction, you may obtain an Assault Weapon Registration Form from the Department of Justice. The form includes instructions.


These forms were mostly available initially at gun stores. Someone, somewhere may still have them. There wasn't much to them IIRC, just the description of the firearm with serial number and then your name, address and maybe DL# or something.

ETA: that something was a thumbprint. Had to go to the local PD to get one.

...on December 28, three short days before the deadline, DOJ posted (on the Internet) a version of the otherwise unobtainable form.

You could fill it in and send it to DOJ, but you still had to somehow obtain and submit a "real" form within 14 calendar days.

If you were lucky enough to find a form, you faced the next hurdle -- fingerprinting. LAPD doesn’t do it anymore. We eventually found someone with a fingerprinting kit.

The year and a half of change, uncertainty, missing information and unobtainable forms are, in part, why so few law-abiding Californians succeeded in running the DOJ assault-weapon registration gauntlet. To many, it was impossible to comply.

so whats that mean only people who use AW's in a crime can register them??

The true crime is anyone who actually registered their weapon(s).

IIRC that was in reference to a few models that were on the list then removed from the list and then re-added. This was an opportunity for those owning to that hadn't registered those particular models to register. Some in the DoJ wanted to make it a criminal case (which it technically was iaw some laws, not others), confiscate and prosecute and others realized that the political ramifications about going after non-criminals when they were only guilty because the laws changed several times was going to be horrendous. The laws passed on based on the premise that confiscations wouldn't happen, etc.

Then another asshole comment on those registering. Many of those registering had to think about a few things more than blind obedience to a theistic moral calling. One realizing that I had purchased my Colt in the period that the state did in fact keep records of sales, and needing a clearance for both my civilian and Navy Reserve jobs committing a felony didn't make much sense did it??? In other words if the state already knew you had it, registering was just a bureaucratic exercise

Now if I happened to have inherited some weapons that may or may not have a state record say an M1 carbine with a folding stock, well maybe the stock got replaced and and maybe it didn't. and maybe or maybe not
