I wish it were that simple, but there is no mandated time nor is there a common 'rule of thumb'. It's undefined, so a bit of a risk; all we can guess is 'longer ownership is less likely to raise questions'.

Do recall that there was a bill introduced this year (that failed) that would have prohibited LEO from reselling off-Roster guns to other CA residents who were not also Roster-exempt.

In my opinion, if the only issue were to be how long one must own a gun before selling it, 'two years' is the absolute safe point - that or longer should never raise an issue.

That is obviously extremely conservative; maybe some other potential seller is comfortable at six months.

I further hold the opinion that 1 month or less is always going to be perilous.

But that's just opinion.
The Legislature is in recess. We're immune from most further mischief until the next session begins, late December 2017.

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
