California DOJ Proposes “Emergency” Regulations Regarding Magazines Capable of Holding More than 10 Rounds but None for “Assault Weapons”

Early this morning, the California Department of Justice provided notice of proposed regulations relating to magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. Included are changes to the requirements for obtaining and maintaining a “large-capacity magazine permit,” new regulations addressing so called “large-capacity” magazine conversion kits, new regulations on how individuals must “permanently alter” a magazine to accept no more than 10 rounds, and new regulations regarding the transfer and possession of multi-tube shotgun designs.

The regulations have been submitted under California’s emergency rulemaking process, which means they could become effective in just 17 days.

We are currently reviewing the proposed regulations and will be providing a detailed analysis of their effect shortly. In the meantime, we encourage all of our members to participate in the rulemaking process by submitting their comments during the 5-day public comment period, expected to begin on December 21.

Currently, CRPA and NRA are still awaiting the DOJ’s proposed regulations that will accompany SB 880 and AB 1135, which redefine the definition of an “assault weapon” in California. CRPA and NRA have submitted a letter about DOJ’s failure to act in a timely manner for this process.

In addition to monitoring the new regulations that are being proposed by the DOJ, CRPA and NRA attorneys are preparing multiple lawsuits to undo the Gunpocalypse bill package and Proposition 63. If successful, these new burdensome regulation proposals will be moot.

  1. FYI – Clicking on the link contained in “CRPA and NRA have submitted a letter about DOJ’s failure to act in a timely manner for this process” does not provide a copy of the letter and instead reports it cannot find the document.

  2. Rule is fraudulent as THERE IS NO EMERGENCY NOW OR SHOWN TO EXIST IN FUTURE The requirement for gun shop owners to keep track and reregister when the shop inventory or part of it is moved to another branch of the shop is ridiculous and fails to show how this provision will make CA safer. this rule only affects honest law a biding folks as any one with criminal intent can ignore it …how does this prevent a criminal intended person from carrying multiple “legal” magazines , thus circumventing the rule?
