CA may still consider her a resident here due to things like voter registration, bank accounts, filing joint taxes using your CA address, named on cars registered here. Lots of pitfalls trying to leave CA cleanly.
The Feds have no problem with her buying guns there but bringing/sending them to CA may have pitfalls (off roster guns) if CA.gov still thinks of her as a resident. Guns entering CA would need to be registered. If it's truly a gift from her to you where you don't supply the idea/money it's not a straw purchase.
