So the Ca DOJ is issuing serial numbers already. We had a customer come into the Bakersfield, Ca location and was asking for the serial numbers to be engraved on his firearm. (SEE ATTACHED) The letter he brought in shows California Penal Codes which federally are void. To manufacture firearms and therefore serialize them for identification you run the chance of committing a federal offense. The BATFE are the ones who issue and hand out serial numbers to Form 7 FFL. Not the CADOJ. A form ATF5320.1 is used and the FORM 7 FFL can engrave the serial number on. Serial numbers are used for "trace" investigations, manufacturer identification, warranty programs and theft recovery. The CADOJ is only doing this for registration purposes and has nothing to do with public safety at all. Why would anybody register a GHOST GUN?
