You know, you may be right here, I suppose that it would be "importation", or maybe more accurately put "Re-Importation."

But you seem to be equating "Importation" with "Illegal." That's not the case.

It's perfectly legal to "Import" large-capacity magazines into California, if they were lawfully possessed in the state prior to 1-1-2000. That's the whole purpose of Penal Code section 32420.

The only issue for the OP is whether he "lawfully possessed" his magazines in California, prior to 1-1-2000. I make the distinction because his postings communicated that he "lived" in California and "owned" several large-capacity magazines. Those two statements allow for the possibility that his magazines were outside of the state, in which case he may not legally bring them in.
