Penal Code Section 32000(a) generally prohibits the sale of "Unsafe Handguns".
Penal Code section 32000(b)(4) provides a listing of agencies and individuals permitted to purchase "Unsafe Handguns". Reserves are included (so long as they are sworn). There is no requirement for full time employment. Retired officers are not. Here is the text of 32000(b)(4):
"The sale or purchase of any pistol, revolver, or other firearm
capable of being concealed upon the person, if the pistol, revolver,
or other firearm is sold to, or purchased by, the Department of
Justice, any police department, any sheriff's official, any marshal's
office, the Youth and Adult Correctional Agency, the California
Highway Patrol, any district attorney's office, or the military or
naval forces of this state or of the United States for use in the
discharge of their official duties. Nor shall anything in this
section prohibit the sale to, or purchase by, sworn members of these
agencies of any pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being
concealed upon the person."
I've noticed too that violent crime is pretty much void within this state now, thanks to the passage of this "wonderful law."
