I have a question regarding your statement for accuracy. I sent a norterized form into CalDOJ requesting them to send me a copy of the records they had regarding the firearms I owned. I received back a letter stating that they don't maintain records of serial numbers except for those firearms that were voluntarily registered. The only firearms (serial #) reported were ones that I had to volunteer to register as a requirement for me to get my CCW permit. Other handguns and rifles that I owned did not appear.
It is my understanding that it is the FFL who is required to maintain records for up to 20 years, not DOJ.
