    Me thinks the Californa DOJ should have their ducks in a row before they hassle a solid citizen for something that happened 30+years ago. Most assuredly if he's kept his nose clean since then.

    If as reported/claimed ...

    Strange, that anything with arrest + $100 fine + "some weekends" in jail = felony, no matter how you slice it.

    Stranger still, that any such "felony" opportunity to deny the RKBA would escape the CA.DOJ.

    In reading this I would be talking to my lawyer. I about choked when I read the threat of arrest if they had to get a warrant. My response would have been go get your warrant and here is the number for my lawyer. Make sure to make an appointment when you return so she can be here with an injunction and lawsuit paperwork.

    From article;

    But it turned out that amid all the cross-checking of databases, no one caught that Merritt's pot bust was downgraded to a misdemeanor, making him a legal gun owner. Two weeks later, agents returned and gave Merritt back his weapons.

    “They called me and said they were going to return them and that the felony was taken off my record,'" Merritt said.
    END

    It sounds as though it is the same bureaucratic BS one could potentially expect from any state.
    Thankfully they did the right thing and returned them all to him and admitted their error.
    Some states would have held strong and as a matter of pride kept them.

    The new correct spelling is now "Kommiefornia". Doesn`t that fit better?.

    This activity is quite understandable if you simply start with the mindset that private subjects should not own firearms to begin with. I am just surprised they returned them without a court order.

    Is there a reason that we are surprised this can happen in the 'Left Coast'?

    The really surprising thing is that they gave the guns back without him having to resort to lawyers and lawsuits and lots of time and money!

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
