This morning I went to do a little research at www.leginfo.ca.gov and I noticed that everything is totally renumbered. Cal-DOJ also sent out a "Information Bulletin" to point out that the new numbers are to be effective as of 1/1/12. When perusing through this, I was totally lost. The numbers go from around 16000 to 31000!

I guess we'll all have to learn a bunch of new PC #'s.

As if they didn't have enough to do already. I wonder how many millions of dollars this cost...

I bet they did not go back and change the referenced section that are in the text. I thought they just did this about 4 years ago.

1. This is supposedly a neutral occurrence. It was done in the hope
of 'clarification' (read: de-Irwinizing) the wild structure of CA gun laws,
and perhaps placing related things closely together. It actually may
help gunnies if a DA can read some gun laws all concentrated in one
spot instead of spread all over.

2. The re-org was specified to be neutral.

2. Jason Davis was on the committee looking out for us to ensure
nothing got screwed up unfavorable to us.

What I'm waiting for is a table that maps the old onto the new numbers.

There were two bills - one that did the re-org, and a second, conditionally effective if the first passed (which it did), that went into all the other places in PC and other codes that referenced the weapons sections and updated them with the new numbers.

Thanks for the clarification, bwiese.

And yes, I would also like a reference map. I was just getting the hang of some of these numbers.

ETA: I just clicked your link franklinarmory, and I'm still seeing stuff numbered the same when I use the search feature. Am I missing something? Penal Code (http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/calawquery?codesection=pen&codebody=&hits=20)

The CA leginfo site has BOTH sets up - 12050 AND 26150 for CCW , for example.

As in Steve Irwin, the awesome man who was immune to crocodiles but finally got taken out by a stingray?

No, Irwin Nowick, a leg aide who helped write a lot of CA gun laws.

I have a feeling that this is going to create a significant amount of confusion for something that is supposed to eliminate confusion.

Only for those of us who have spent the last few years rotting our brains by reading PC ...

Might confer immunity to zombies.
