Discogodfather 11-09-2017 8:19 PM

Sheesh, I wonder if they super scrutinize people submitting lots of guns at a time. Maybe it's better to trickle them through rather than do it all at once.

truthseeker 11-09-2017 8:32 PM

Sounds like a cluster f**k!

I know "old timers" that will probably never even attempt to register, because it is too much of a hassle!

This just proves it!!

After looking at all that BS, I don't blame anyone for not bothering.

Not to be a DOJ apologist but it seems half of the times they kicked it back were mistakes you made

Yea I’m not saying it wasn’t my mistake, I’m just simply sharing so others don’t make the same mistake, or if anyone is waiting to submit, they know what they are getting themselves into. The process is nothing like the ‘89 process and they are meticulous about some things, ignorant about others, and presumptuous about some things. Furthermore, I submitted these forms on day one when it opened and am getting these kickbacks three months later

truthseeker 11-09-2017 9:00 PM

I wonder how the "kickbacks 3 months later" is going to be handled by DOJ with people that register the day before the registration deadline.

Are they going to be able to correct mistakes?

Are they screwed?

The whole fiasco is a big fail!

sevendayweekend 11-09-2017 9:13 PM

Itís regulatory bs. F them.
Unfortunately thatís how it works in ca with everything, not just guns. I can see how some choose not to participate in state sanctioned life.

sevendayweekend 11-09-2017 9:15 PM

And yea, thanks for the examples op

malfunction 11-09-2017 9:15 PM

Somebody should buy them a map; pretty sure Vyatskie Polyany is a small city in the Kirov region of Russia, it sure isn't a "make/model". Nor is Romania.

sevendayweekend 11-09-2017 9:37 PM

^
Itís all retarded, the cant ban by make / model, so they want to block firearms ownership based on technicalities. Thatís how it works here. Wether you want to put a deck in your backyard, or own a rifle, California wants a piece of it. F ďthemĒ

Crazed_SS 11-09-2017 9:50 PM

Since we're collecting kickback reasons here, Ill post this again.. this was the only issue I had and was easily rectified.


Quote:

Thank you for submitting your application. The weapon appears to be manufactured by Aero Precision, Inc. Please update your application to reflect that this is not a self-built firearm.
Self-built is for 80%, NOT rifles built from stripped lowers.

ScottsBad 11-09-2017 10:19 PM

Let's make it as hard for them as we can.

I think everybody should submit messed up registration applications multiple times to overwhelm the system! Its called civil disobedience and this is a perfect opportunity for everyone to protest by making their job as hard as possible.

Librarian 11-09-2017 10:51 PM

Let us use 'rejections' instead of 'kickbacks'.

'Kickbacks' has a connotation of 'bribery'.

Thread title changed.

Perfect opportunity? The politicians and the decision-makers won’t be affected by something like this. You might feel like you’re striking out against the people who’ve infringed on your rights, but your efforts are misguided. Only the people who have to process these applications will be inconvenienced by a “protest” like this. You’re attacking the foot soldiers for the policies of their leaders.

This reminds me of the people who pay their income taxes in pennies to “protest” the tax system in America. The only thing it does is punish the clerks who have to count them all out. They’re not the people who are setting your tax rates and spending your money foolishly; they are just trying to work an honest job and provide for their families.

we have until the end of june, 2018 to register. Is that correct?

AEtrane 11-10-2017 12:29 PM

Demanding high resolution photos following a specific and arbitrary set of regulations is ok regarding 2A rights, but requiring an ID constitutes an "undue burden" on citizens voting rights.

Seems like registration requires possession and knowledge on how to operate sophisticated photography equipment, or at least a very nice phone. What if one has neither?

Do you think they really care? Where are you going to find a judge to stop this? They hate us and there is no one that will stop them. Just my pessimistic view.

Wonder what the make/model listed when the gun was DROSd? This would show up in the DOJ-provided firearms ownership report.

They expect us to register guns with different manufacturer than DROS records?

Add yet another level of retard to CA.

Note to self: sounds like DOJ is scrutinizing applications (and going over the fine details) so best to pay attention to their application.

PMACA_MFG 11-10-2017 5:50 PM

Use a metric tape mesure.

AEtrane 11-10-2017 6:07 PM

"Do you think they really care?"

I know they don't, but their lack of caring might give with reason for litigation under Equal Protection. How can the courts determine an id is an unnecessary financial burden on an illegal immigrant, but this clown show somehow is not?

I bet they will also be confused by the fact that manufacturer and importer are different things. These people aren't too bright.

Because having access to a couple thousand dollars of camera, computer equipment and internet access is so much less burdensome than a ten dollar ID. simple liberal logic.

MadRiverArms 11-10-2017 9:27 PM

If I was going to reg a rifle I'd probably order a dildo online and slice it down the middle so I could zip tie it to the barrel as a handguard. I wonder if they'd kick that back...

HibikiR 11-10-2017 9:42 PM

I remember that someone had a kickback that might have been due to a Magpul PRS stock. Hope they can report in.

They are.

Before you hit submit, it pays to just go over everything and make sure itís correct.. spend about 20 mins per rifle just to be certain

bronco75a 11-11-2017 5:39 AM

What irritates me other than being able to see the serial number properly and maybe the whole left/right side of receiver - though that's petty - is the DOJ could make those corrections on their end.

C.W.M.V. 11-11-2017 7:13 AM

Jesus I’m glad my rifles are featureless.

voit 11-11-2017 10:43 AM

To hell with the DOJ, and their whole dictatorial process! Those photos will be with the government forever, no matter where you go. I'm still guessing only 10% will comply with this new registration nightmare...at least in all the shooting circles I interact with. An NO, we do not neuter our guns either!! Good luck to you who work so hard to be law abiding, with laws that are indefinitely unconstitutional!

Sousuke 11-11-2017 11:43 AM

Mistakes are one thing, but some of what they are doing goes beyond the regs. That is why multiple letters were sent to them specifically pointing out that the image requirements were vague and unclear. Think of other agencies that have photo requirements - they provide details of the photos all the way down to dimensions.

I will be registering one gun. If the photos I provide meet the vague regulations but not the clerk reviewing my photos so be it. I will continue to submit until I'm either rejected or run out of time. I will then pass along all my info to Michel & Associates as I'm sure they will appreciate having an example of a person following the regs and being rejected due to the vagueness and overreach of the photo requirements.
