New form Jan 2012 - http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/pdfs/firearms/forms/oplaw.pdf?

I guess they're finally serious, though only heaven knows why.

Aw geeze. What if one is HSC exempt? LEO, LTC, etc. Can we just use the DROS exemption codes? :rolleyes:

Interesting. I have wondered why I didn't have to provide mine when I was 19 and my dad transferred my pistol to me. Everybody said I needed a HSC, but it confused me when I didn't see a place to put it.

More that they didn't really care enough to allocate resources to it until they had to revise the form anyway.

I just a PPT today and while they had that new space for your HSC#, up top near your name is a box that specifies any exemption i.e. leo, military, flying monkey patrol...

The penal code has never allowed any HSC exemptions for Op-Law/Intra-Familial transfers. Even if you are exempt from needing an HSC when acquiring through a dealer you are still technically supposed to have an HSC to do Op-Law/Intra-Familial handgun transfers. There has never been a way for CalDOJ to enforce this until now, since the old form didn't have a space for an HSC number.

Maybe CalDOJ will allow exemptions so as to stay within "the spirit" of the law.
