I was talking to my dad recently and he had bought a SIG 226 at the last orange county gun show. He said that the vendor needed his car registration to "ensure that's here the gun was really going". Is this a new law, some company policy, more of comrade attorney general's insanity, or what?:confused:

Well, you need secondary proof of residence to purchase a handgun in California. Car registration is one common form, but utility bills, lease agreements, deeds, military permanent duty station orders indicating assignment within Califfornia, or other "government-issued (city, county, special district, state, or federal) license, permit, or registration, other than a California Driver License or California Identification Card, that has a specified expiration date or period of validity" are all good as long as it lists your name and address. This has been the law since 2003.

Oh, that, okay.

I guess my dad just got really pissed off at all the new unwelcome suprises after not buying a handgun in 20+ years.:eek:

Heh, yeah, I definitely shouldn't have gone there with him. http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/4461/soapboxwr2.gif

If someone in a 20 year time warp (as far as gun las are concerned), I'd hate to think of what kind of reaction I would get out of someone, let's say hypothetically, in a 220 year time warp.http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/5184/angrymobzn8.gif

I think someone from the Revolutionary period would be quite impressed with efficiency with which we can now kill people. :D

The Revolutionary war might have ended at Lexington were the minute men armed with AKs.
