Hehe. Check out the California insanity.

NVGs are legal here, but NV Scopes are illegal. They're actually defined as "sniper scopes" under the law banning them. So, if you've got an ANPVS-14 you have to wear it on your head.

Mauser101,

It is not illegal to have a passive night vision device even if mounted on a rifle. What is illegal, is to have an active NVD - illuminator and image intensifier. If you do not have a rifle mounted illuminator, you are okay.

This law was written when the old Starlight scopes were first introduced. That technology has been eclipsed by the efficiency of the modern image intensifiers. You can still use an illuminator if there is no light available (indoors, with no light/heat sources) but they are not needed outdoors due to the available moonlight and starlight.

are those against the law everywhere or just CA?

The law referred to in this post is a California state law, not a federal one.
