Welcome to the forum. I think the answer to your question is going to depend on state law. In California, for example, she would report an "operation of law" (inheritance) transfer. There is form for that on the CA DOJ website.

Yes, California law is draconian. I swear, next year we will be required to register kitchen knives.

The biggest issue is what you get caught doing with that gun. If you stay out of trouble; most folks, cops, and prosecutors don''t really care about great grandpa's gun, especially a revolver in 32-20.

If you get caught doing anything illegal and you have that gun; you are in deep, deep horse pucky. California prosecutors can use the gun charges to up the ante by a hundred and probably will. And if you're a bad guy, that's OK with me.


I try to stay legal with every transaction I do. I don't need the anxiety or aggravation.

Welcome to the Forum. Even a simple traffic stop with that gun is trouble if the officer asks if you have any firearms in the car. Actually, you probably are compelled to tell an officer you have guns in the car right up front. The risk for a just a burned out tail light could be the confiscation of all your firearms. Up to you to decide.

What if you didn't tell them you have it? How would they know? I'm thinking that if the cops are searching your house, you probably have a bigger problem than grand daddy's 32! I say wrap it up in a rag, put it back in the sock draw and let the communists in charge go screw themselves!

As far as the traffic stop goes, Give them your license and registration, take the ticket for the broken tail light and wish the officer a nice day. If he is rummaging around in your car, it's because you gave him a reason. This is still the United States and you are under no obligation to answer any questions.

You are obligated by law to disclose that fact in almost every state. Failure to do so can be a felony and automatic jail time. These laws are supposed to help protect the police officer from danger. It would be interesting in having some of our law enforcement members respond.

I should add that if you have a concealed carry permit, one condition in almost all states is that you are required to disclose a concealed gun in your vehicle. That is a rule that I never intend to violate.

Could you quote statutes for that in each state? It is certainly NOT the case in MASSACHUSETTS. I do know that there are a few (six? sixteen?) states where it IS required.

However, lying to an LEO is a whole nother thing, certainly to be avoided, and usually illegal.

I did not phrase my comments correctly and you are correct that the majority of states do not require an individual to notify of concealed carry, but the majority of states (30 states) require disclosure if the LEO askes. Your last comment is what I guess I am trying to get at, non-compliance is an issue left to the LEOs descension statute or not.

I believe that in Arkansas, if they run your D License, it tells them also that you are a concealed carrier. I believe you are required to let the Officer know you have a ccl.

I find that you must show your gun(s) to LEO if asked for an ID.

I get stopped so seldom I don't even keep up with what's required anymore...The few times it's happened I've had my DL, CHL and insurance card ready by the time the officer walks to my window...I just tell them which hip my gun is riding on that day while keeping my hands on the steering wheel, and I'm on my merry way...

Once I was stopped for a burned out taillight way early in the morning on my way to set up my tables for a gun show...The officer asked if I had any firearms in the truck, to which I answered one on my right hip and about 300 in the back...When he found out I was a licensed gun dealer he just told me to get the light fixed soon, and have a nice day......Ben

When doing firearm transactions between friends in the not too distant past we always did them before the new laws went into effect. How would the state know when grandpa gave you the gun? He's your grandpa and gave you the gun when you turned eighteen...I do understand that if you were up before a jury you'd be in some trouble but just generally all of the firearms that were lost in the boating accident a few years ago were all acquired before the new laws went into effect. Anything I own that was acquired via a firearms transaction will not leave my hands without going through a proper state sponsored, I do understand that but this state just recently required transfer paperwork for gifts, estate, etc. I did sell a firearm to a friend who decided he wanted to get it fully state transferred, I didn't care, whatever he wanted was fine and I respect that.
Do all firearms currently residing in California need to be registered to be legal? Meaning, if you have owned one for over fifty years do you have to have it registered to be legally owned, or is there some kind of grace period where grandpa's gun could fit into.

Wow! The OP is looking for information specific to CA. Everything else above is a bunch of chest-thumping uninformed BS. Cattfish - please do some research specific to your locale and then follow the laws, whether you or anybody else on this forum like them. CA tends to have some unpopular regulations around these parts. Asking legal advice on an Internet forum may not be the best place to get it. Good luck with the old 32-20; it could be a lot of fun!
