A man had his guns confiscated over a misdemeanor drug conviction... in 1970. Of course, the police returned them a few weeks later, once they figured out he was allowed to have them. These are the people who are targets of gun control -- the honest citizens trying to follow the law. Not the criminals who are killing people.
The agents were with a special state unit tasked with checking the lists of registered gun owners against databases showing people who are not allowed to have weapons. It was set up under a 2001 law, Senate Bill 950, which created the Armed and Prohibited Persons System (APPS).
"APPS cross-references five databases to find people who legally purchased handguns and registered assault weapons since 1996 with those prohibited from owning or possessing firearms," reads a fact sheet from the office of Attorney General Kamala Harris.
This is why we don't register guns in America. Unfortunately, it seems that California is no longer part of America.
