Default Underground Regulation: Non Rosterable Frames

All,

Just dispatched by courier is this petition to the Office of Administrative Law showing that it is an underground regulation to claim that the frame or receiver of a handgun is an "unsafe handgun" under California Law.

The OAL generally takes about 60 days to determine whether they will review the underground regulation petition or not so stay tuned.

first in a big thread.


Hope this works out in our favor

EDIT: So I take it this puts NeRFs on hold for a long while?

Beautiful. I had never noticed that 12125 wasn't listed in 12001(c) -- that's a brilliant find.

So I wonder how many "they're not doing anything about NRFs!!" guys will eat their words now.

Great job!

I wonder if you can clarify one point: Is the preparation and dispatch of this petition the only thing that was delaying the first NeRF transfers, or will y'all still be waiting for the OAL response?

Good job, CGF.

Can you explain in "lay-terms" what this means to us and why it took several months?

When they basically didn't wish to discuss or consider a non hard line with the Capacity to Accept regulation, I took that to mean that waiting for them to respond on the NRF items wouldn't be worth the delay.

I'll post up the PRAR timelines and communications that lead to this filing when I have a chance. They are amusing. Right now I've got some other things to take care of.

How good is the OAL in dealing with such matters? Are they reliable to not have any buddy buddying with the BoF?

We have a CGF board meeting tonight. As you can see we've been a bit preoccupied getting the two petitions together so we'll have that plan though through and announced shortly.

Short answer: dunno at this exact second but will know very soon.

They were very effective to deal with on our first petition. You should have confidence they will handle this fairly.

However it turns out, "thank you" for the obviously large effort that went into this and the other petition. Let's hope that the "good guys" win this one, and send the anti's into a hasty retreat.

Thanks for the clarification, Gene. I'm not in a hurry... I was just curious.

Also, my eyes pop wide open when you say things like "Right now I've got some other things to take care of". Ok, that could mean that you have to go feed the dogs, fix a clogged drain, etc., but somehow I think you're casually arming another legal nuke to lob at our enemies...

Thank you, Gene, for all the hard work you and the CGF do for us. I can think of no more honorable act then restoring our rights here in California and you've done an absolutely outstanding job of helping all of us defend our rights. I shall (continue to) support calguns and the CGF as you pave the way forward.

Thanks.

Gene and I would be willing to NeRF even now, but to truly make things work en masse we need to do things right.

Thus, this drama came to pass: we thought it would be avoidable or be sorted quickly but it escalated instead.

So "they" want to fight it out at the OAL. I guess that makes sense since a certain employee is a puppet of the Brady group.

The side effect to all of this is that Alison will soon develop a phobia when it comes to getting (1) FEDEX letters, and (2) emails from anyone on the CGF.
