Default Question - Intrafamilial interstate transfer Deceased Father

Hey everyone,

My father who lived in Illinois passed away and I inherited his firearms. So I brought them back with me to California and have filled out the Intra-Familial Firearm Transaction forms, to transfer them into my name.

Nothing crazy on the list that would include -
3 revolvers,
5 rifles, bolt action and lever action
2 shotguns of legal specs.

I'm a California resident, Los Angeles area and I do have a CA Firearm Safety Certificate

I have heard mixed answers from FFL's and gunstores, so I have a few final questions.

I have read the other forums, but I would like to be totally clear regarding the Intra-Familial Firearm Transaction laws and forms.

Now, with the exemptions I have read about, because my father passed...
I believe I should just be able to fill out the forms, include the $19 check and I should be pretty much ready to go, right?

...Or do I have this all totally wrong?

Even though its not mentioned anywhere, should I include a copy of the death certificate?

Thank you all in advance.

Exactly right.

Both CA and Feds allow no-FFL inheritance; CA requires it be 'immediate family', which includes parents to children.

Sorry for your loss.
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
- Thomas Sowell
I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.

^^^ What Librarian said. I went through this a couple years ago. It took about 6 weeks to get the confirmation from them.

Don’t be surprised if they tell you in the letter that you should’ve gone through an FFL and to do so in the future, it happened to me. Our own Ca DOJ doesn’t even know their own laws, pretty sad. Sorry for your loss.

Yes you can have 2 C&R 03 FFL's; 1 in California and 1 in a different state.
