A friend of mine called me this morning to say he received a certified letter from the Campbell PD over the weekend regarding the recovery of one of his firearms he had stolen from his house about four years ago.

He called them this morning and found out it was one of the two RAWs (Registered Assault Weapon) that were among the stolen guns (9 total). Here are the details of his conversation (below):

...just got off the phone with Campbell police. The one they recovered was my Century arms .308 sporter. So now there are two more issues. She was not sure if they would let me have it back since it might be considered an "assault weapon." She has to call the DOJ and let me know. The other issue is that NRA insurance paid me $1000 for the loss of all of them. So they might have a claim to re-coup their $. So not looking good on my end.


Can the Campbell PD deny him his rifle based on the fact that it's an "on list" assault weapon even though it is registered?

I think they have to give it back to him. It was Registered to him. So that's ownership.
I could be wrong. I know how some LEO are.

Why would the NRA want there money back? He has eight other guns missing. I would think the others would add up to more than 1000

Well, it looks like they are looking for guidance from the DOJ so, I'm hoping that it's a straightforward process to get his RAW returned.

Yeah, I don't know why he's concerned about the NRA trying to re-coup $1K in insurance money. Like you said, there are still eight other guns still unaccounted for. From what I can remember the other eight included a .454 Casull, G17, AK47, and Beretta 92 among others.

He only had them insured for $1k?

Fail?

Good question. I know he's an NRA Life Member but I'm not sure how much insurance he had. Trust me, I always told him he needed a safe for all his guns.

Most homeowners/renters insurance covers up to $2,000 on firearms by default. I purchased a rider for my renters insurance to fully cover my firearms and safe.

Its cheap

Even $2k coverage is a FAIL!

For coverage do you have to list your firearms to the insurance company?

Sounds like he's a regular member and had the free $1000 coverage. Basically, he didn't really insure it, he just used the free offer, since it was, well free.

You get $5000 insurance for free with lifetime membership, if I recall correctly.

I didn't. But if they are stolen/destroyed I need to be able to provide them with detailed info, photos, proof of value (receipt of purchase) etc.

If it's registered, he should send the PD a copy of his registration letter.
That would eliminate any issues of it being an AW.

Once it's reported stolen does it become "deregistered" such that it would require a new permit for it to be returned?

There's nothing in the law about that.
If you registered an AW, moved out of CA later and then decided to move BACK INTO CA, the gun is still registered to you.

I'll tell him to do this. Thanks.
