CALIFORNIA - LEGAL:

The Franklin Armory Homeland Security Carbine (HSC-15) and SE-SSP AR Pistols are designed and constructed specifically for the California Market. Some people will erroneously believe that all AR type rifles are illegal "Assault Weapons" in California. We have openly discussed our product manufacturing with the Cal-DOJ and every other level of government. No agency has found a single law, regulation, or code to prohibit the manufacture, sale, and/or possession of our products. Furthermore, DOJ field representatives have informed us that the Franklin Armory products will NOT generate an enforcement referral (ostensibly because a prosecutable statue does not exist!) To further explain why our products are legal, we have decided to quote the following sections and court cases that relate specifically to this subject. It is not easy reading, but it clarifies why our AR based HSC-15 and SE-SSP firearms comply with state law.

Penal Code section 12276(a) (5) and 12276(e) defined all “Colt AR-15 series” semi-automatic rifles as “assault weapons." However in 2001, the California Supreme Court limited this law in “Harrott v.County of Kings" (25 cal. 4th 1138.) The court held that the firearm must be specifically named in regulations under the provisions of Penal Code 12276.5. The California Legislature subsequently passed AB2728 in 2006, which limits the California Department of Justice from ever adding new names to the list after January of 2007. Consequently, it is legal to possess any AR receiver that does not have a manufacturer and model specifically itemized in 12276(a) so long as the firearm is not configured in a manner that would make it an "assault weapon" under 12276.1(a)(1-3).

Penal Code section 12276.1 (aka SB23) defines “assault weapons” by particular features. These physical characteristics are fully described in 12276.1(a)(1-3), but in order for any of these features to be relevant the rifle must first have a "detachable magazine" as noted in 12276.1(a)(1). The Franklin Armory HSC-15 does not have a standard AR type magazine release. A tool must be used to release the magazine from the firearm, so our rifles, by definition, are in complete conformance to the California Code of Regulations, Title 11, Section 5469. Effectively, Franklin Armory is selling an AR type rifle that has a magazine that is not readily detachable.

Penal Code subsection (2) of 12276.1(a) does require that fixed magazines be of no greater capacity than 10 rounds. As such, we sell the Franklin Armory HSC-15 with a 10 round magazine. We also double check the capacity of every magazine before it leaves our factory. It is critical that end-users never use a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds while they are in California. For this reason, we have also installed a label on the right side of the lower receiver that states: “10 round magazine maximum.”

And lastly, subsection (3) of 12276.1(a) requires all semiautomatic center fire rifles to have an overall length over 30 inches. At Franklin Armory, we make sure the HSC-15 is measured to be well over 30 inches. In fact, with the flash hider removed and the stock fully collapsed, our HSC-15 carbines measure 30.5 inches.

The SE-SSP is our Self Extracting - Single Shot Pistol. It complies with all of the AW provisions noted in 12276.1(a)(4) pursuant to pistols. In addition, these pistols are exempted from the requirement to be on the Cal-DOJ handgun list per 12125. Instead, they fall under the provisions for exemption under 12133(b). What is really interesting is that the State of California has officially condoned our product by placing the Franklin Armory products in the official list of Exempted Pistols. Now when dealers process the DROS of a Franklin Armory SE-SSP, they can select the specific model in the drop down menu on their DROS computer.

Overall, the law in California is extremely complex, and firearm regulations are no exception. Some might say that our product cuts a little to close to edge of what is legal, but then again, how many 16 inch barreled bolt action .22 rifles or 18 inch pump shotguns have been sold in this state without incident? Would not these firearm transactions have violated state law if they were only .1 inch shorter? Yet, no licensed dealer we know would have a problem selling a Ruger 10/22™ or Remington 870™! We encourage you to review the original sources for the references noted above and get back to us with any questions.
