    Default Registered Firearm

    I have a question an CA resident purchased a firearm and the firearm was registered FFL to Local and State DOJ.

    Suppose a person moved out to other state, does he or she required to inform to CA State DOJ that he or she moved out to state, because his or her gun was registered through CA DOJ ?

    Any help input I appreciated !

    The former CA resident does not have to inform CA DOJ BOF that they relocated and became a resident of another state.

    The former resident can voluntarily notify CA DOJ BOF that they moved relocated and became a resident of another state. That way the handgun registration info can be removed from the CA DOJ database.
    Notification can be done by mailing in a completed Notice of No Longer in Possession form to CA DOJ BOF.

    If the former CA resident visits CA, then it is recommened that the former CA resident does not voluntarily have their handgun registration information removed from the CA DOJ BOF database. Due to the fact that possessing an unregistered handgun is a sentence enhancement and only CA residents can register handguns with CA DOJ BOF.

    For example...
    carrying a concealed registered handgun without a permit = misdemeanor
    carrying a concealed unregistered handgun without a permit = felony

    Improper transportation of a handgun in CA, can lead to a carrying concealed without a permit violation.
    Since non-residents of CA can not register firearms with CA DOJ BOF, any non-resident of CA that improperly transports a handgun can be arrested for a felony.

    Okay thanks for input information..Appreciatively!! BUT if a non-resident had a concealed carry permit from other state and is owned a gun, but he/she can locked on gun pad, or container case locked, and put it in the trunk. Therefore, she or he is not felony or misdemeanor when she or he visits CA.

    CA does not honor/recognize CCW permits from other states.

    In CA, proper transport of a handgun = unloaded in a locked container.

    As long as the handgun is unloaded and in a locked container then it is legal.
    Problems arise of the handgun is loaded and/or in an unlocked container.
