Interesting: California’s Approved Hanguns All Have Expiration Dates
tractioncontrol.well-regulatedmilitia.org ^ | November 26, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 11/26/2012 10:54:06 AM PST by marktwain

After 12/31/2013, there are none (except for one model – likely a typo – with a 2033 date).


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Government; History; Politics
KEYWORDS: approval; banglist; california; handguns
What possible reason can their be to require retesting of models that have not changed their design, other than to whittle down the number of models over time. This is an outrage that does not meet even a rational basis test.

There are links at the site to rosters of handguns that are approved, and those whose approval has expired!

California and rational don’t belong in the same paragraph.

We need more info here. You’ve got my attention. What is the story? Are handguns being banned in CA through attrition? What law? When? How? What is an inspection and why is it necessary?

Has your account been hi-jacked?

Is that for a CCW or just a permit to own a gun?

Concealed carry requires another permit.

Just another attempt to invalidate the people’s vote on California’s proposition 15 back in 1982.

That was the attempt to ban handguns in California. It failed miserably, so the legislature has been working overtime to try and find ways around it.

State of California decertified handgun models (pdf file):

http://oag.ca.gov/sites/oag.ca.gov/files/pdfs/firearms/removed.pdf

“Handgun models whose certification has expired or otherwise removed from the Roster. These models may no longer be sold, offered for sale, or manufactured in California.”

California passed a first in the nation bill that bans the sale of all new handguns except those that are allowed. Apparantly, those that have been approved, are approved only for a limited time. When their approval runs out, they have to go back through the entire expensive, time takeing process again.

I suppose that if the approval runs out and dealers have models in stock, that they are then not allowed to sell them.

It is an insane model of a law.

A typo misspelling of handgun.

Duh. I was just joking. Since the election, no one has a sense of humor, which I totally understand.

Hanguns are the only type of personal protection allowed when the libs finish taking all of the handguns away.

It works like this: You call 911 and eventually someone answers and after they hear your harrowing scary story they say:

“Hangun there hon, we’ll send a police officer over in a little while”

Sorry, couldn’t resist... ;-)

State of California decertified handgun models

That list is a mind blower! Even the Ruger LCR 38 special is on the de-certified list.

Are handguns being banned in CA through attrition?

From the website:

View list of handgun models whose status has changed recently:

You'll note the first list is one page long and has five guns on it, while the second list is 24 pages long and has perhaps 600 guns on it (my estimate), which means California bans 120 times more guns every year than it certifies for sale. But I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

I’m become very annoyed at the de-certification list:

Everything I owned before the boating accident was on that list. Darn it!

For a moment there I thought Crazyland wanted only biodegradable guns made from materials that would break down after an allotted time.

Just picked up an LCR in 357 yesterday. I guess the gun store didn’t know it had been decertified. Not that it matters, dammit; I lost it in a boating accident this morning!
