Default LA City warning letter (again)

Hi All,
I did a search before posting as I know this has been asked many times, but there has been nothing discussed for more than a year (that I found anyway).
Is the City Attorney still sending letters with the purchase of a handgun in LA? I've gotten mixed messages when I have asked various people and I wondered if there was anything new on the subject.
Thanks,
Wade

And this has nothing to do with the USP I just put in jail and haven't discussed with anyone at home...

Wade65,

If I remember correctly I received only one letter in the past regarding my responsibilities in purchasing a firearm in the city of L.A. Since then I haven't received any more letters in the mail so perhaps iit was realized the city was wasting time and money.

I never heard of this before. I just looked up the letter and it reads like a lot of threats and harassment.

I'm glad I moved out of LA years ago.

It was never really an "ongoing" thing. A few people posted that they got them, but the vast majority of us did not.

I received a letter for every purchase I made between 2012 and 2015 regardless of whether or not the firearm was a handgun, a rifle, or a shotgun. In April of 2015 I stopped receiving them.

Copied from a Michel & Assoc update thread:

"Los Angeles City “warning letters” – For several years, the Los Angeles City Attorney mailed threatening letters to new gun purchasers warning them of their obligations and the stiff penalties for violating and of California’s numerous firearm laws. NRA and CRPA pressed the Los Angeles City Attorney for information on how it obtained gun owner information, and as a result voluntarily discontinued the program in 2015."

The thread is titled:NRA and CRPA California Legal Affairs Report (February 2017)

It's a good read and worth doing a search on.

Yep, I used to get those "love letters" for every gun purchase until June 2015 and then they stopped. They would come within the 10 day waiting period.
