Just curious as to how much time between the incident with your brother and his GF, and when local PD came to the house? If it was literally the same day from when the altercation took place, there wasn't much of an option. But lesson learned. Never allow anyone to store their firearms with you. That's a hard lesson to learn, but in this state you must be on top of current laws.

The biggest thing that bothers me here is that the OP was caught up in an unfortunate situation and the gloating of Calgunners saying "your fault".

C'mon folks, are we being helpful to our brother? Sometimes (often?) on CalGuns I have noticed a tendency to jump people's case and even belittle them for minor mistakes they may or may not have made. In fact I have been guilty of this... This is a fellow gun enthusiast, not our enemy. I think we can suggest how things might have been done better without pointing fingers and saying in essence "sucks to be you!"

The OP did not break any law, and yet he had his guns taken. This is the part we need to focus on right?
Well said!

Do the LEGR.. get the guns and convert to featureless..

Of course, if the LEO has the guns after the date, then they will say they are not illegal unregistered assault weapons and keep them even though they are only illegal because they took them and prevented you from registering or converting them.

At worst they would hand you back the guns after the date and then immediately arrest you for prossesion of unregistered assault weapons.

For the govt, and most police, it isn't about doing what's right, fair, or sensical.. it's about furthering some sort of agenda.

If you can't get the guns back by the end of the month I think you are pretty screwed.

Also, after reading the responses in this thread it's clear we have quite a few aholes on this board..

Nice community we have when some peoples first response is to bash the OP instead of trying to help his figure out how to work withing CA's insane laws.

Sad

If it was me personally, I would not be comfortable with that. There's no guarantee the parents or brother would not simply tell the arrested person the new code. They clearly have been running a household where everyone had access to all the firearms. If it was set up that way prior to being there, then fine. I guess its just a trust issue at that point. Since the OP mentioned he had some C&R guns, I would imagine most if not all were unregistered so proving ownership would have been difficult to establish.

Thats just my take on the situation.

Mistakes were made and there's no way for any of us to offer advice that can make the outcome of those mistakes any less unpleasant.
So the conversation moves to WHAT mistakes were made, and how can we avoid those mistakes in the future.

It's not about being an a-hole, it's about helping others avoid the same situation. People learn from mistakes. Wise people learn from the mistakes of others.
I feel sorry for the OP, it's a bad situation that would not exist outside of California, New York, or Hawaii.
Hopefully, our SCOTUS clears out all of these BS laws and applies 2A equally to the entire country.
Not going to happen this year.

Who's gloating? I wasn't. Just stating the fact the OP made a mistake and it was his fault, but no one was gloating.

He's done - he is not getting these back. At least not for less than he paid or could replace them for. Not enough time. And one of them was potentially in an illegal configuration, what with having no mag catch.

There is no helping him get them back now, the only help we can offer now is to keep it real with him, so maybe it doesn't happen to him again or to someone else. Sometimes the best way to learn not to hammer your finger when nailing, is to hammer the living F out of your finger when nailing. Consider this the hammering. If we soothed him with a feather, he'd be back here in 6 months talking about how his brother done F'd him over again.

Have you asked the holding agency to store the uppers and lowers separately so that according to the Cal DoJ refs they wont become assault weapons on July 1? Then maybe you could get them back disassembled and make them featureless before reassembling.

A random scenario here but what if the brothers guns were in a duffle bag or under yhe bed of his old bedroom at his parents house? Not in OPs safe at all but once parents have let them in they see the safe and want access to that too? I know california has some random locked container ordinances.

Go ya one better. Ask the holding agency to return only the uppers with any optics. Perhaps if you have a friend that can take the trigger assembly out if it's an expensive one. They can keep the lowers (or the remaining of what's left of the receiver) in their entirety and destroy them. Might give you two benefits:

1. The lower in question is no longer in his possession and therefore no issue with BBAW or any such nonsense and there is no need to register anything. he is not taking possession of an illegal weapon if it gets back to him after 01JUL18.

2. He can rebuild the lower as a featureless after buying a fully milled out lower receiver (bare frame) from an LGS. No AW "violation" or registration issue and he is not taking possession of any questionable item, regardless of July 1 or not.

If the agency is willing to do that, the OP could consider this a lesson in life that will cost whatever it takes to replace the lower. I know it isn't the best answer; the cops took more than they should have, but given the circumstances took what they may have had a reasonable cause to take. We can speculate all we want. Regardless, I think this would be a good solution because at the end of the day, if the cops are willing to work with him and do this, he can sleep well knowing the entire thing goes away.

Just a thought.

EDIT: It was mentioned something about one of them not having a mag catch and that being a crime. I'm not up on the law with that, but wouldn't that make the rifle a single shot rifle? No mag catch and the stupid thing can't hold a magazine in it. Even if you sit it in there and turn the rifle upward to shoot it with light friction holding it, one throw of the bolt home and the mag falls out. The magazine is unusable.

There was a thread some time ago that discussed the feasibility and liability of a firearm without a mag release. The firearm will function and cycle if you hold the magazine in by hand, and no tool is needed to remove the magazine. The general consensus was that it could be viewed as an illegal AW. The law states: (D) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip. there is nothing in the AW law about retaining the magazine, being awkward to fire or just plain stupid.

That's crazy, how can you have a detachable magazine if it's not attachable to begin with?

Guess I need to go remove the stocks and pistol grips from my separated lowers until my freedom date.

The new regs state that a receiver that does not have a magazine catch installed "does not have a fixed magazine"
Yes, I know the wording of the law governing pistols and shotguns remains unchanged and still references the "detachable" magazine as a feature. The DOJ "corrected that oversight" in their (underground) regulations that became law when filed.

The regs no longer say "detachable magazine"... the regs consider it an AW if it does not have a fixed magazine. The regs outline the differences between "Detachable", "Fixed", and "Permanent"

Your separated lowers are fine per the wording of the enacted regs.

Wow...just wow. Every time I think the state assembly can't do anything dumber, they manage to convince me with a new level of moronic.

But at least they're consistently stupid. Anyone hear about that 55 gal per day water limit?

Man that sucks OP. LEO oftentimes don't really care about these things...they just grab everything they can. Don't mind the negative responses of some...you couldn't have really seen this coming or imagined that your guns would get jacked.

Like others have mentioned...you have the potential option of see if they will seperate the uppers and lowers and basically dissasemble the parts and take those. This might be a decent option but honestly...knowing how the laws are and how the agencies are...this doesn't seem likely. It is worth a shot though...

As far as this thread goes, I'm really disappointed to see some of the responses that people are giving. The average person isn't a lawyer who spends all day studying the minutia of gun laws and all of the possible ways they can protect themselves from getting screwed over by some technicality. Even lawyers are unable to make sense of all of these laws at this point.

The best approach is to actually help the OP get his damn guns back...not blame him for something that is completely outside of the law.

I understand that the Legislature is about to submit a bill that would prohibit surfing and skiing on the same day. You will, however, be able to wallow in your assigned tenement to enjoy the collective stench from not being to bathe and do laundry. Running water and toilet flushing will be allowed on the same two days a week that you can water your outside potted plant.

Unless you are an undocumented immigrant? All the water you need, free college tuition and free healthcare? Who says we have the right to separate him from grandma and cousins back home? Let them in already, grandma needs her hip replaced and cousin wants to attend Cal or UCLA!

A full-time legislature with a part-time job + an idle mind is the Devil's playground = Excremento.

They should be sweating reelection over the poor state of our roads and schools but no, they have a world to lead.

You'd think they'd be sweating election, but why do I get the sense that no matter which way I vote, they'll be reelected? Every time I vote for someone who sounds like they would do a better job, they lose to the person that could not lead me out of a paper bag.

Emboldening them to dream up new ways to cause me to wonder how it is that the human race managed to make it this far.

I have 2 10 year old nieces (twins) who've had a rough life. A father that abandoned them, a cousin that abused them and a mother that can't parent and no one close enough to look up to (I am the closest and I live 3 hours away), yet they still try to be upbeat. What's going to be left for them?

I'm at least glad you're seeing that some are trying to be helpful. I agree; OP should've been more careful about it, but LEOs could've been more forward thinking about it as well.

I know some of the old timers here are either lawyers or could be them in some cases. Their knowledge is that good. I just try to be helpful. Sometimes I am, sometimes I'm not, but I try never to be offensive about it.

I enjoy being among a community that for the most part, is sympathetic to our plight...especially given that it is the plight of many (if not most) here on the forum.

Thanks again for seeing some positivity.

Unfortunately, there is nothing that any of us can do to help him get his guns back other than to recommend that he contact a good attorney, and that likely isn't going to help since he is not under any criminal charges.
He has to go through the LEGR process and there is no way to push that through.

Also unfortunately, we are responsible for understanding gun laws and how they impact our personal situations.
OP did nothing illegal... it was an unfortunate set of circumstances that resulted in Brother becoming prohibited and OP not having sufficient warning to separate their guns and lock his own up separately.

The way it SHOULD have worked was Brother should have handled it the way my boss handled it when his wife threw a DVRO on him. As soon as he was notified of the TRO, he immediately loaded all of his guns into his truck and took them to the local PD.
PD and the DA investigated, found no evidence of wrongdoing, and the day of the hearing to make the TRO permanent, well golly gee... his ex didn't show up and called to cancel the hearing, dropping the accusation about an hour before the hearing.
She did this a number of times (only once involving a DVRO), because she knew the way the system worked... she could toss out some BS and it would cost him $10k in attorney fees because he would have to prepare a defense and go to the court... only to not have to appear.

But that didn't happen, Brother owes OP big time.
But there's nothing any of us can do other than give him a virtual hug and say "bummer dude"... that's not going to help anyone else avoid a similar situation.
