Default Handgun Laws for 18, 19, 20

The DOJ keeps messing this up this week...

FEDERAL law says an FFL may not transfer a HANDGUN to someone under 21.

California law adds persons and corporations to that restriction.

So, the only way that works in California is intrafamilial transfer. See
Transferring Firearms Among Some Family Members for the detail, but according to California law
* PC 12026 is clear that 18, 19, 20 may own, possess, keep and use handguns;

* someone over 18 may receive a handgun as a gift from a parent or grandparent IF s/he has an HSC -- PC 12078(c)(2);

AND
* the requirement for an HSC is to be at least 18 and be able to prove it.
So, please feel confident filing the intrafamilial transfer forms, and be polite but firm with DOJ and FFLs who are confused about what you want to do.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Both federal and state laws prohibit an FFL from transferring a handgun to under-21, and state laws prohibit other businesses and individuals from doing so. A 'LEO card', whatever that might be, will have no effect on the ability to purchase a handgun.

If one is sworn LEO at under 21, I suspect the agency could issue a duty weapon, but I haven't heard of that.

I have talked to FFLs about that very subject of sworn LEOs under 21 (I know a couple) and they all have told me that they can't sell a handgun to them either, nor can they sell them ammo either.
The whole 21 thing is stupid anyway, but to deny a SWORN LEO under 21 from buying a handgun.. I mean come on.. I sworn peace officer still needs to have daddy buy him a handgun as a gift...?

One of these days, we will end age discrimination in this country...
