How California Gun Owners Are Legally Keeping Their AR-15 Rifles
By Hollie McKay, FOX NEWS
It seems California lawmakers’ efforts to force rifle owners to register their personal details, or resort to cumbersome reloading or giving up their arms altogether, may have missed the mark.
Although months behind schedule, the State of California’s Department of Justice (DOJ) this week opened up its online registration for gun owners to enroll their bullet-button toting AR-15 rifles – now deemed to be “assault weapons” – in line with a controversial set of sweeping gun control laws signed into state law last year.
But gunmakers and owners say they already have come up with creative workarounds to be legally compliant but avoid giving the government even more personal information.
