Indeed, you are correct.
Ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law, but I think since we really tried to do everything else right, this will end in leniency.
I'm sure the customer will be madder than a hornet, and that really sucks as I'm sure in some circles our reputation will be besmirched. But in the end, it's the state of CA doing the screwing. Only thing he can blame us with is doing the DROS wrong. He'd have been angry at us no matter what, since had we known we couldn't DROS the weapon he would have had to find a way to sell it to get his ducketts back.
Lose, lose, lose. Everybody loses.
