Firearms Dealers Frequently Asked Questions

1. After January 1, 2017, will a firearms dealer be required to possess a Dangerous Weapons Permit in
order to sell firearms that are affected by SB 880/AB 1135?
YES. Beginning January 1, 2017, a firearms dealer must have a valid Dangerous Weapons Permit to sell
firearms affected by SB 880/AB 1135.


2. How long does the Dangerous Weapons Permit application process take?
At this time, applications are taking at least 1 year to process.


3. What happens if a dealer doesn’t acquire a Dangerous Weapons Permit by January 1, 2017, and they
still have firearms that are affected by SB 880/AB 1135 in their inventory?
Pursuant to Penal Code Section 30600 a regular firearms dealer is not authorized to manufacture,
distribute, transport, or import into the state, keep for sale, or offer or expose for sale or give or lend
any bullet button assault weapons after January 1, 2017. A dealer who has applied for and received a
Dangerous Weapons Permit specifically for assault weapons would be an exception to the above
statement.
Please note: Submission of a Dangerous Weapons Permit application does not constitute an exception
for a dealer to have firearms that are affected by SB 880/AB 1135 in their possession after
January 1, 2017. Dealers MUST have a DOJ issued Dangerous Weapons Permit for assault weapons.


4. What can a dealership do to ensure they are not in violation of any new assault weapon legislation?
If you do NOT have a Dangerous Weapons Permit, you must deliver, or dispose of all firearms that are
affected by SB 880/AB 1135 prior to January 1, 2017:
o Conduct all SB 880/AB 1135 affected firearms sales (DROS) by no later than
December 21, 2016, and ensure all firearms are picked up/delivered PRIOR to
December 31, 2016, at 10:59:59 pm (the DROS Entry System is available from 7:00 am –
11:00 pm). It is strongly recommended that dealers plan accordingly and ensure they are
able to deliver all firearms by said date and time.
o For SB 880/AB 1135 affected firearms that are not sold (DROS’d) by December 21, 2016:
 Transfer the firearms to a firearms dealers with a Dangerous Weapons Permit

firearm an assault weapon

disassembly of the firearm action

making prior arrangements.

Please note: it is the dealership’s responsibility to ensure they are not in violation of any assault weapon
laws. If you do not have a Dangerous Weapons Permit and are in possession of firearms that are
affected by SB 880/AB 1135 after January 1, 2017, you will be prosecuted.


5. What if an individual initiates a DROS on a firearm that is affected by SB 880/AB 1135 on or before
December 21, 2016, but the background check is delayed and determination is not provided by the
Department of Justice by December 31, 2016?
The dealer will NOT be able to deliver the firearm after December 31, 2016, regardless of the
circumstances.


6. What if an individual initiates the DROS process on a firearm that is affected by SB 880/AB 1135
through a dealer sale or private party transfer before January 1, 2017, but the 10‐day waiting period

and cannot be delivered ‐‐ regardless of the date the DROS was initiated.


7. What if an individual insists on initiating a private party transfer of a firearm affected by
SB 880/AB 1135 after December 21, 2016, such that the delivery cannot take place until after
January 1, 2017?
Dealers should advise customers that firearms affected by SB 880/AB 1135 cannot be delivered to either
the transferor or transferee after January 1, 2017, regardless of when the DROS was initiated.
Private Party Transfers on firearms affected by SB 880/AB 1135 should not be initiated after December
21, 2016, unless the buyer has a 10‐day waiting period exemption. Since a dealer cannot legally deliver a
firearm affected by SB 880/AB 1135, they will not be required to process Private Party Transfers specific
to those firearms.

NO. Assault weapons cannot be pawned. Therefore, firearms identified as an assault weapon under the

The Department does not anticipate having any issues with the DROS Entry system.
