- In California do you need any kind of a gun permit, and do weapons need to be registered? I have two revolvers and two rifles that I inherited from my dad that are not registered, and I have no permit. I do have one rifle that was purchased for me in California as a gift about 20 years ago, so I don’t know if there was any kind of registration/permit process
There is also no registration requirement. However new handguns are automatically registered when you buy them. But you do not have to register the ones you got 20 years ago. I forget when the various transfer requirements started. You can figure that out here: http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/in...Family_Members But regardless, your transfers happened before there were any such requirements.
