3 Guns that Are Illegal to Have in California

3.) The Finnish Valmet M76

The RK 62 76, which is also known as the Valmet M76 is a operated by gas, and is an assault rifle stemming originally from Finland. IT was also made into a semi-automatic version for the  civilian market. It is a modified version of an AK-47 and is based on the Rk 62 design. The gun was in being produced from 1976 to 1986, a ten year period. Its receiver is made up of stamped and riveted sheet metal, instead of Rk 62’s originally milled receiver. Unfortunately, because it is considered dangerous to own as homes as a firearm, it is banned in Cali under the state’s gun laws.

2.) Uzi Carbine

The UZI, in its pistol and carbine renditions counts  for about 3 percent of the banned  assault weapons in California. The UZI is a wide-ranged family of Israeli open-bolt, blowback-operated submachine guns. Smaller variants are considered to be known as machine pistols. The Uzi was one of the first weapons to use a telescoping bolt design which allows the magazine to be housed in the pistol grip for a shorter weapon. The first Uzi submachine gun was designed by Major Uziel Gal in the late 1940s. The prototype was finished in 1950. First introduced to IDF special forces in 1954, the weapon was placed into general issue two years later. The Uzi has found use as a personal defense weapon by rear-echelon troops, officers, artillery troops and tankers, as well as a frontline weapon by elite light infantry assault forces. Thus making it such a threat to California household safety.

 1.) FN FAL

 The FN FAL is a French gun. In the French language it stands for Fusil Automatique Léger which translates in English to: Light Automatic Rifle. It is a battle rifle that was designed by Dieudonné Saive and Ernest Vervier and manufactured by Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal. During the Cold War, it was adopted by several nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization(NATO) with the notable exception of the United States.Thus why it is illegal to own in Cali.  It is one of the most widely used rifles in history, having been used by more than 90 countries. The FAL was primarily chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO round (although originally designed for the .280 British intermediate cartridge) and because of its reputation and widespread use along the armed forces of many NATO countries during the Cold War it was nicknamed as “The right arm of the Free World”. A British Commonwealth version of the FN FAL has been produced under licence as the L1A1 Self-Loading Rifle, but it still has no way of getting itself into California. Considered a foreign gun, California has so many guns that it’s dealing with it doesn’t have the time or energy to get to the chopper and pick up a few foreign guns and go through all the paperwork to have it deemed to be legal in its state. This is why the FN FAL is illegal in California.
