Q: In reviewing help desk solutions # 4281, 4343, 2730 this conflicts with information that CA DOJ has told us directly. Interfamilial transfers of non-roster firearms from out of state are allowed through an FFL. The procedure is for the FFL to process the DROS as an “Operation of Law Transfer”. The following restrictions apply: a) the firearm must not be otherwise prohibited in CA i.e. assault weapon. b) the relative must be straight up and down the family tree i.e. parent to offspring; offspring to parent; grandparent to grandchild or grandchild to grandparent. c) the firearm must be accompanied by a letter from the relative attesting to the gifting fully identifying both parties and it is preferred that the letter be notarized. The dealer needs to keep this letter on file with the DROS paperwork.
