I am planning on traveling through California and I need to know if California is like other states that allow free through travel if your gun is legal where you are coming from and legal where you are going.
Since a silencer is not considered a "firearm", then U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1, Chap 44, does not apply.
If you get caught with any silencer while in California, expect to be staying in California for a period of several years.
