My wife and I really would like to move to California next year after I retire. Her sister lives near Sacramento and we found a small community up in the foothills that we really like. I am quite concerned about all the crazy leftist politics and the state’s financial future. Also we would have to get rid of most of our guns, magazines, ammo, reloading equipment and supplies before moving.
There is a process to bring in guns and stuff. That information would be on the California Attorney Generals website. I think it's $19 per handgun, nothing over 10 rounds. Long guns are okay, no fees. You couldn't bring your machine guns into the state.
I know how you feel. I, myself, am planning to move to Cuba after I retire.
That, or North Korea.
