CA - register your firearms and get raided!!

Postby Bruenor » Thu May 31, 2018 8:17 pm

Looks like this guy was trying to comply with California's laws by registering his AR. ... 1186514586

According to court documents, the California Department of Justice raided Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann's home last month, after he tried to register an illegally modified gun online through the state's website.

What they found in his home, led to the DA filing charges: a dozen guns, 230 rounds of ammunition and two silencers seized from Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann's home in a gated community in Northwest Bakersfield.

Records from the Secretary of State's office list Kirschenmann as the CEO of Scott Kirschenmann Farms, Inc. -- with the same lamont mailing address as Kirschenmann Farms, Inc. -- the local grower known for its potatoes used by Frito Lay to make chips.

According to court documents, the DOJ began investigating Kirschenmann when he electronically submitted photos of an illegally modified AR-15-style firearm.

Retired KCSO Commander Joe Pilkington is a court recognized firearms expert. He could not speak directly to Kirschenmann's case but says the laws are changing so frequently, it's often hard to keep up with the latest regulations.

Something as simple as a forward pistol grip added to a rail could make him a felon. It certainly will make him much poorer!

And you wonder why the NY SAFE act has single digit compliance...
