California gun owners warily eye rifle, shotgun database requirement

A previously passed gun control measure, Assembly Bill 809, signed into law in 2011, imposes on rifles and shotguns the same record-keeping requirements that currently apply to handguns. Starting on Jan. 1, 2014, the California Department of Justice will retain information on long gun purchases, data they had formerly been compelled to destroy within five days. Dealers will need to register purchases with the state.
