If you open carry a gun within 1,000 feet of a K-12 school zone, you can be arrested and charged and possibly convicted.In Tampa Fl, my friends and I would often spend weeknights at the range. We'd bring m4's, ak's, 30 round clips, half a dozen handguns, and could even rent fully automatic. One particular range was 50 cal friendly, indoors (http://www.knightshooting.com).
I recently took a job out here in LA. I can't even find a range? Which I suppose is my first question.
Second, after reading a bit, I see California is listed as Rural open carry, but some here have been charged for carrying to close to schools (while in the city?).
And last, did I read that any center file rifle with a re-loadable clip, with a capacity greater than 10, is banned as an Assault Rifle? And a felony to possess?!?
2. If you bring ANY magazine into California that has a capacity to hold more than 10 rounds, you can be arrested, charged and convicted.
3. The key is "detachable" magazine, not "re-loadable". Any firearm that doesn't have a re-loadable magazine is useless when the rounds are expended. But yes, a center-fire rifle with a regular magazine release, if it has a +10 magazine in it is by CA ;aw definition an "Assault Weapon". The best source for questions on the legalities oflog arms and how to keep them configured so they are not considered "Assault Weapons" by CA law is Calguns.net.
