Heller was 2008. McDonald was 2010. Things started getting bad with GCA-1968.
It takes time to unwind 40 years of bad law.

Just to catch this one - it WAS legal in 2013, it is highly likely ILLEGAL in 2014 and going forward.

For the 2013 and earlier situation, "leave them disassembled" is critical.

Moving to CA, neither DROS nor SSE has any application to guns you bring with you. Assuming no 'assault weapons' or things like the Taurus Judge (a CA short-barreled shotgun), all you need do is register the guns with the New Resident form.

I thought the wiki link was clear on that ...

Moving here? It doesn't.

The HSC (next year the FSC) applies when purchasing a gun in CA.

Since this is a thread about moving to CA, and the Roster does not apply to guns moved here, that is uninteresting.

Further, 'legal in California' is a mistake. It should be 'legal for FFLs in California to sell to non exempt buyers in non-exempt transactions' - it has nothing to do with owning or using.

Default Where is the wiki?

I think this post needs updating - links are not valid.

Thanks!

They were OK, up until a couple days ago

Try this main link to the wiki info -- https://web.archive.org/web/20131021....php/Main_Page -- and use the upper-right arrows to force the WAYBACK machine to load the most recent versions, OCT 27, 2015 for most.
