California DOJ Approves New Regulations On “Assault Weapons”

California gun owners in possession of certain firearms now classified as “assault weapons” will need to register their guns with the state Department of Justice or modify them so that they no longer meet this definition, if new regulations approved by the Office of Administrative Law hold up in court.

A previous round of proposed regulations was rejected by the OAL after attorneys representing the NRA and the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) issued a joint opposition letter debunking the DOJ’s claims about the effects of such measures.

NRA-ILA reports that NRA and CRPA attorneys are already preparing a lawsuit to challenge the regulations. For further updates, visit the Stand and Fight California website.
