Is there a one stop shopping list of all the dates that all of the transfer/ban laws went into effect?

Like:

10 round magazines
Threaded barrels on pistol restriction
AW listing
Registering firearms when rlocating into the state
50BMG restriction -

plus the other 100's of other goofy laws?

I don't know, but that sounds like a good idea. Maybe I'll put one together.

Mike H. had a list of what was passed last year. I think the NRA keeps a list.

I'm bumping this as a great idea and would like to see:

the first possible date the govt would have had access to any paperwork on a purchase.
the date private party transfers were required to go through a FFL (same as above?)
the date interfamily transfers could take place without paperwork.

Bill, I think that would be a very useful thing to have here. Kudo's if you can pull it off.

Thanks,

I know they are unpopular recently, but CRPA annually puts out a pamphlet to members that includes this and other info.

http://leginfo.ca.gov/ should have all that info

(maybe I won't lose this reply :mad: )

Most of the laws have effective dates embedded in the text.

Roberti-Roos, the original list of 'assault weapons' was effective 1 Jan 1990. PC 12275

Perata's SB23, the 'aw' feature test bill, was effective 1 Jan 2000. It also includes the threaded barrel on pistols and the large (standard) capacity magazine language, same date. PC 12276.1

.50 calibers became aw's effective 1 Jan 2005. PC 12280

Personal handgun importers have been required to register since 1 Jan 1998. PC 12001

'Basic Firearms Safety Certificates' were required from 1 April 1994 to 1 Jan 2003, when it was replaced by the 'Handgun Safety Certificate'. That's also the date for the 'safety demonstration' and the 'proof of residency'

I wrote to the DOJ about FFL sales: Effective January 1, 1991, all firearms purchases and transfers, including private party transactions and sales at gun shows, must be made through a licensed dealer under the Dealer Record of Sale (DROS) process.

'Safe gun' list - PC 12131, 1 Jan 2001.

Link (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=21000) to older calguns thread, pretty much the same info, but harder to find than I expected.

Hey, mind if I use your post as the basis for a gunwiki article? That would make it a lot easier to find this in the future.

Done. I've created a friendly table, and kept some of the addendums down below where it didn't make sense to put in the table.

Anyone else got more to contribute? I'm also interested in the time they added flamethrowers to the prohibited list...

BFSC/HSC is PC 12071 (8)(B)

PC 12070 is the dealer requirement - 12070. (a) No person shall sell, lease, or transfer firearms unless he or she has been issued a license pursuant to Section 12071. Any person violating this section is guilty of a misdemeanor. - there's just no date in the code, thus the DOJ inquiry.

Mag disconnect/loaded chamber stuff is PC 12126 (b) (4) and (5)

Original 'safe gun' list requirement is PC 12125, effective date 1 Jan 2001.

I guess I could have registered and edited it myself....:D
