Simple answer seems to be yes; however, if they're only here for 3 years and are sent here on orders by a higher echelon of the government it seems like they [federal government] would trump the state government and wouldn't be applicable.

Granted I think the time is coming where everyone, regardless of what state you live in, will be required to register their guns.
At the moment, military moving here on orders are exempt from registering anything. I don't recall that being changed in the bill. If you separate here, then you need to register as a new resident.

Sometimes I forget: anything I post relative to CA law is in the light of current law, as of the date of the post.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.
