California Penal Code Section 16730

CA Penal Code § 16730 (2017)  

(a) As used in Section 31815 and in Division 6 (commencing with Section 26500) of Title 4, “infrequent” means:

(1) For handguns, less than six transactions per calendar year.

(2) For firearms other than handguns, occasional and without regularity.

(b) As used in Section 27900, the term “infrequent” shall not be construed to prohibit different local chapters of the same nonprofit corporation from conducting auctions or similar events, provided the individual local chapter conducts the auctions or similar events infrequently. It is the intent of the Legislature that different local chapters, representing different localities, be entitled to invoke the exemption created by Section 27900, notwithstanding the frequency with which other chapters of the same nonprofit corporation may conduct auctions or similar events.

(c) As used in this section, “transaction” means a single sale, lease, or transfer of any number of handguns.

(Added by Stats. 2010, Ch. 711, Sec. 6. (SB 1080) Effective January 1, 2011. Operative January 1, 2012, by Sec. 10 of Ch. 711.)
