Default An 'as-applied' explanation

The words 'private', 'party' and 'transaction' all have common meanings.

But in California, the phrase "private party transaction (PPT)" has a specific meaning.

A California PPT occurs when
a California resident

goes to a CA FFL

to sell any gun - used or new is not relevant -

to another CA resident.
Use of a CA FFL is required by law, as noted in this thread, and the CA-resident part is implemented in the DROS software.

Since a resident of a state other than California is unlikely to have CA ID, a gun from out of state is unlikely to be eligible for a CA PPT.

That means the transfer would be treated as an interstate transfer, and the FFL is able to charge whatever fee is reasonable to the business, and the Roster would apply to handgun transactions.
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.

I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
