California - State law requires handguns to meet basic safety standards including a drop-safety test and a firing performance test. All firearms must be sold with a state-certified locking device. State law also requires new handgun models introduced in 2006 to have either a loaded-chamber indicator or a magazine safety disconnect, and by 2007 newly introduced handgun models must have both devices. But the state does not require handguns to have a built-in "childproof" or "personalized" locking device to prevent unintentional or unauthorized use of the weapon. And state law does not provide independent authority for the State Attorney General to establish gun safety standards.
