Default How the REAL ID Act Impacts Californians

I couldn't find anything on this subject in our forum so here's the latest update from CRPA on how the REAL ID impacts us all.
https://www.crpa.org/crpa-news/real-id-update-part-3/

I ran into this today when I tried to claim my Glock prize from a GSSF match in Sacramento but was denied to start the DROS process. They said my "non" Real ID drivers licence was not sufficient credentials. Bear in mind, I had a passport, military ID card CCW from my county as well as Nevada and Oregon and none of it was good enough.

When I go home I found this CRPA article on the subject, and it appears DOJ may have reversed its' position.

Doesn't make my 90 mile drive feel any better, but I've submitted this article to the dealer to see if they've changed their minds.

Bottom line is. . . . when you renew your license, get the Real ID option and be safe.

"Real ID" Update

New NON Real ID Drivers Licenses

Real IDs / Cal DLs for Firearm Purchases

Renewing CA Driving License by mail may affect buying/selling firearm??

You might go through those threads as they are primarily focused on the issue.

Depends on if your non-real ID was issued after 01/22/18 or not. Previous, old style ID's are fine so long as they aren't actual AB60 ID's.

DOJ did not reverse it's decision, ATF did.

CCW's serve zero purpose here other than the CA version for the X41 exemption and address requirement.

Your federal ID's are insufficient for CA purposes. Well, technically, your CAC card and orders would've been sufficient, but you didn't use that, right?

In california illegal aliens/immigrants are legal and legal citizens have been reduced to alien/illegal status through no fault of their own. I have seen people who have renewed their licenses this year only to have non-ID versions even though they paid for the new ID portion to be added. Check you new licenses carefully.

If you are an illegal with a CDL... you are fine

It’s only when the ID is renewed that illegals cannot buy a gun

Illegals are issued AB60 licenses and cannot legally transfer guns or ammo. They have never been able to.

Unless they stole someone else's identity, that is.

Pretty much everyone that I have talked to is clueless about READ ID.
It will be interesting when people who need access to Federal facilities as part of their job start getting turned away. What about those summoned to Federal Jury duty?

For those who need to get a REAL ID, consider getting a California Identification Card that is REAL ID. It's good for 6 years at a time and you can keep your drivers license for driving and not mess with that.

Default CA DMV Visit was NICE!

I mailed in my renewal in February because it was expiring and i couldn't get an appointment until April. I received the Fed Limits Apply License. Today i went into the DMV, 20 minutes before my appointment time, and was seen to upgrade to the new Real Id License. I was out of there in 30 minutes...NO FEE TO UPGRADE! They used a code and a CA DMV FREEBIE!!!
They did give me a paper temp license, punched a hole in my old license and gave it back to me to use for the pic if needed. It was taking 3x as long in the other line because they had to explain the Real Id to everyone. The employees are mad because CA waited so long instead of rolling this out gradually.
Wow! i never thought i would post something nice about the CA DMV, but today they really were outstanding in my case!

I just got my "Real ID" last week. I bought ammo yesterday in LA City and was told it is a good thing I have it or they (Big 5) would not be able to sell it to me. I don't know if that is true or not.

when the background checks to buy ammo become effective in 2019, they will probably only sell to people with a real ID?

there is an easy way to solve this issue. do not issue licenses of any kind or ID cards to illegals and issue the federally cleared version to citizens and save the taxpayer a ton of money. Oh, and no increase in fees for any reason. You pass your citizenship test you get the rights of a citizen. You don't you go home in handcuffs. How tough is that? Ammo and guns have to be cheaper in Mexico anyway. they do not have to put up with Jerry Brown.

In Nevada they assume you are going to shoot all that ammo you buy at the local ranges but if you happen to accidentally take some home with you then that is on you and between you and your california DOJ masters. Since i do not respect california like i do other states i have ceased capitalizing the first letter whether it is a "C" or a "K". It is a way of showing displeasure and a passive refusal to cooperate with illegal laws.
