Sorry, but you are wrong. Check out the CA BOE rules. The CA FFL is considered the retailer and has to submit the sales tax for the firearm, which means that they collect it from the buyer. The seller might not collect sales tax, but that does not matter.

There are a couple of cases where it is not subject to sales tax, but not the general case.
FFL Transfer/Special Order Dealer since 1993.
Net-FFL list maintainer.
