Being caught with a stolen or illegal handgun (same thing) is a felony in California. I checked recently because I decided that the process required to get a CCW in California was too oppressive and expensive with a high chance of being rejected for all your work so I decided to live by the saying that when freedom is outlawed become a criminal so when I feel like carrying I just do so illegally. I wanted to know what the charges would be if I am caught doing so. For me a misdemeanor (legal handgun / clean record).
Check again. After proposition 47, theft of or possession of a stolen gun valued under $950.00 is a misdemeanor. Thank you liberal trial lawyers.
Way off topic.. But, I would hire someone who likes the Wintertime up there as a caretaker. Jack Nicholson comes to mind
As for the CCW, this was a fairly good write-up on the process. http://www.shouselaw.com/concealed-weapon.html#4.2
(NOT AN ENDORSEMENT for the law firm; just a good write-up)
Rogue, which of the first 4 bullet points scare you about the process?
