Yes, yes it would.Would this exclude any rifle with a barrel greater than 16 inches?
Well, not if it doesn't say that.It says it would apply to any under 16 inches, but I was just wondering if it might also apply to anything else with a barrel length over 16 inches.
Case law? I don't know of any case law which supports this. But the penal code is pretty clear that carrying a shotgun with an 18" barrel under a coat would be legal. It's not a concealable weapon by definition from PC 12001. So therefore you can't conceal it. Even if you had invisible paint.I remember reading a memo here from a CA law enforcement agency saying that if someone managed to conceal an unloaded shotgun with an 18" barrel under there coat that it wouldn't be a 12025 violation for carrying a concealed weapon. Does anyone know of any relevant case law which also supports this?
This is correct, carrying a long gun ten feet from a school is legal according to state law. Federal law still calls it a crime, but that law is probably is unconstitutional since Congress in all of its wisdom passed the same exact law with an additional few words on it end to somehow make it constitutional. Most people outside of California don't even know such law exists.And I assume that would also exempt a long gun from needing to be in a locked case in a vehicle within 1000 feet of a school zone, which 626.9 seemingly says, and I would imagine that to be the intent of the law. I would also imagine that this should apply to someone carrying a long gun that is unloaded but not in a vehicle, if they happened to be within 1000 feet of a school?
I don't know what a box magazine is, and I only have a slight idea what a tube fed magazine is, so I'll refrain from answering this.I assume a .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device only refers to tube magazines of the like found on lever-actions and not box magazines?
.22's are certainly not exempt from the assault weapons ban. A threaded barrel on a .22 handgun would be an assault weapon. I actually saw one a month ago in a gun store, the guy was going through FFL transfers and pointed out that it was illegal due to the threaded barrel. It was a Walter P22 I believe.Also, are .22's exempt from the California Assault Weapons ban? I've heard that, but can't seem to find the code at the moment that says so. For example would a 10/22 with 10 round magazines and any stock configuration, or a Walther G22 be Califoria legal?
A 10/22 with a 10 round magazine is perfectly legal. I have one. A 10/22 with a 11 round magazine is illegal. I'm not sure what a G22 is.
Seems pretty logical to me. Not sure if this has come up in the forums in the past though since we mainly deal with handguns.I would imagine that it would be okay to conceal a magazine for a rifle too if one could conceal a rifle, because if a rifle is not a concealable firearm then how could someone conceal an integral part of it?
