No he cannot.

Your mother however can.

If it is a gun that he already owns he can give it to your mother in an 'operation of law' called conversion, who can in turn give it to you.

Why not? It is his Parent. There does not appear to be a distinction between step-parent and parent per the PC.

Can you break it down further?

He said he was not legally adopted, so his stepfather is not his father in the legal sense or the biological sense.

no - but my mom married him LEGALLY under the State laws. Marriage is a legal institution sactioned by the State.

and if he gives it to mom who them gives it to me isnt that a Straw gift/transfer?

If he gives the firearm to your mom, knowing that she is going to give it to you so that you can avoid him DROSing it to you through a PPT then both he and your mom have violated California law.

If he gives it to your mom and then she decides she no longer wants it and then she gives it to you then that would be legal. All of this supposes that he and your mom and you are all residents of California.
