I've heard that on this year's tax forms that you have to pay $50 for every firearm you own to State of California. Is this fact or fiction?

More fiction than fiction. Where did you hear this?

Let's stay focused on killing AB962/SB585 today, 2 real threats to gunnies in CA.

Absolute junk fiction. Variants exist for Federal tax too.

Curious, from where are you hearing this?

The NRA (as well as Calguns etc.) have been debunking this but apparently our outreach doesn't go everywhere, or the folks that believe that are sadly so disconnected from the gun community they live on rumors.

Stuff like that would be major news and all over NRA, CRPA, Calguns websites with major pushback. (It's also politically and legally untenable.)

Nothing to worry about it appears, yet.

Just a couple of guys at work were talking about it. It didn't sound right so before I completely wrote it off I just wanted to check. Thanks for your response!
