Yes. Starting in 2014 you will need to register your long guns when you move to California. That could be a huge expense for some collectors if DOJ uses the current method of $19 per firearm.

Thanks for the quick response.

Well that sucks. I'm still confident that Bill, Brandon and Gene can take care of this though.

Here's the section of AB 809...

27560. (a) Within 60 days of bringing a handgun, and commencing January 1, 2014, any firearm, into this state, a personal firearm importer shall do one of the following:
(1) Forward by prepaid mail or deliver in person to the Department of Justice, a report prescribed by the department including information concerning that individual and a description of the firearm in question.

(2) Sell or transfer the firearm in accordance with the provisions of Section 27545 or in accordance with the provisions of an exemption from Section 27545.

(3) Sell or transfer the firearm to a dealer licensed pursuant to Article 1 (commencing with Section 26700) and Article 2 (commencing with Section 26800) of Chapter 2.

(4) Sell or transfer the firearm to a sheriff or police department.

Then there is the part that renames "personal handgun importer" to "personal firearm importer"...

17000. (a) As used in this part, until January 1, 2014, any reference to the term "personal firearm importer" shall be deemed to mean "personal handgun importer" and, on and after January 1, 2014, any reference to the term "personal handgun importer" shall be deemed to mean "personal firearm importer." A "personal handgun importer," until January 1, 2014, and commencing January 1, 2014, a "personal firearm importer" means an individual who meets all of the following criteria:

That section then goes on to list all of the criteria that define a personal firearm importer. They are the same criteria as before, but with the word "firearm" substituted for "handgun".
