Banned Guns in California

Banned Rifle

Below is a small list of an even larger list of firearms that are in serious jeopardy of being banned and deemed illegal in the state of California. The current legislation still states it is legal to own an Assault Rifle, but revisions and changes to this legislation are currently in the works. California Law makers are trying to push for all Assault Weapons, Olympic Pistols, and Destructive Devices to be banned. In order to do this they have to determine what makes a firearm fall into one of these categories. Once determined California will systematically start banning all firearms that are not in accordance to their legislation. To learn more about what laws are being put in place Click Here
