I know pistols must be registered upon entering the state but how does this apply to Ar-15's,shot guns, and numerous hunting rifles?
I know in 2014 long guns will be required to be registered but as of right now am I able to just bring in long guns unregistered?

As long as they are otherwise California legal... yes.

My understanding is that long guns purchased after Jan 1, 2014 need to be registered.....not ones acquired earlier

Ok cool. Thats less money I have to for over to the DOJ, Ill save that money for
more pistols.
Im glad because I have a lot of shotguns, ar-15 lowers and hunting rifles to bring in. It would be costly to have to pay the doj 19 bucks each.

As long as long guns not on Kasler list you can posses them. And you can put multiple firearms on form for $19. If ar15s on list leave them out of state.

That doesn't apply to guns moved here - those will have to be registered, no matter when purchased, if moved here after Jan 1 2014.

New resident registration is $19 for each handgun - http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/pdfs/firearms/forms/ab991frm.pdf? - and that will extend to long guns in 2014.

'AR15' is often a shorthand for 'AR-pattern rifle' and does not necessarily mean a banned-by-name weapon.

That's unfortunate....someone moving to the CA, after Jan 1, 2014, with long arms, will have to register them all, no matter when they acquired them and someone with long arms, who acquired those firearms before Jan 1, 2014 & was a resident of CA prior to Jan 1, 2014.......will not have to register them.
