Man Arrested For Trying To Comply With California Gun Law


This is a story that probably could only happen in California: A guy tries to comply with a law and is, consequently, arrested in by law enforcement officers who raid his home.

I wish that I was kidding about this. Dan Zimmerman writes,

A Bakersfield man, wanting to comply with Sacramento’s latest diktats, attempted to register his firearms through the state Department of Justice’s web portal. How’d that go for him?

According to court documents, the California Department of Justice raided Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann’s home last month, after he tried to register an illegally modified gun online through the state’s website.

What they found in his home, led to the DA filing charges: a dozen guns, 230 rounds of ammunition and two silencers seized from Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann’s home in a gated community in Northwest Bakersfield.

Now, to be fair, this guy had silencers, which are illegal in California, but, it appears, these silencers weren’t known about by law enforcement until they raided his home. It appears that they raided his home based on the attempt to register an illegally modified rifle, but we don’t know what the illegal modification is.


What we do know is that this guy tried to comply with the laws in a state in which the guns laws are constantly changing, and they took him to task for it. Even “a court recognized firearms expert,” Joe Pilkington said that law enforcement’s response was over the top:

“Just in the last few years, there have been lots of changes in gun laws. Making an effort, a good faith effort to comply with these really complicated laws, should count for something.”

But, for the anti-gunner politicians in California, making laws that people can comply with isn’t the point when it comes to guns because they already consider you a criminal for just owning one (no matter how you obtained it).

This is just another example of anti-gunner oppression and presents another great reason for you and me to resist any urge to move to California.



  1. We now know that California is infested by a form of parasite called anencephalitic progressive liberals. These nasty parasites specialize in turning beautiful places like California into soulless wastelands devoid of the free and the brave, which have been banished. These parasites have already invaded the neighboring state of Oregon and even spilled past it into Washington. There are a number of other states that have also been infested, like Illinois, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Maryland. In New York, New York City has been lost to these nasty parasites and they now threaten the rest of the state. All of the remaining New England and Mid-Atlantic states are under attack and a secondary infestation has started in Florida. The CDC is powerless against these highly contagious parasites, since it was long ago overrun by the same parasites. Washington DC seems to be a primary source of infestation. Almost every person elected and sent there is quickly corrupted and rendered powerless to act against this rapidly advancing menace. These parasites main sources of food are individual freedoms and the natural rights of humans, which they consume voraciously, leaving blubbering, idiotic snowflakes in place of the vigorous humans they once potentially were.

  2. Only in the state well country of California They do as they want what they say goes and they think every state should do what they do cause they are right and everyone else is wrong They have three stars and celebs and they think they are the supreme rulers of the whole country
    Look at President Trump when he tries to do good for the country where do all the ones who don’t like him go to file court injunctions against him that’s right California when other groups think you should go along with there thinking you have no rights they only have rights they file lawsuits where California
    There could be a major earthquake and California could slide into the ocean ( oh please please let that happen ) no one would miss them They want to trample the rights of everyone so they can say we make the rules you don’t count SCREW YOU CALIFORNIA an honest AMERICAN again I said honest but they wouldn’t know what that ment there tried to obey the law and you punish him for it Yea your a state I done ever want to visit unless it was to wave goodbye as you slid into the ocean

  3. California is now being run by Constitution trashing freedom haters. I gave up a piece of my life and some body parts defending this country and I would do it again if I could! The people now running California want to stop decent honest citizens from being able to defend themselves. The criminals and crazies will be delighted!

  4. Hope that all the California dem’s get overrun by MS-13 and they are brutally attacked and tortured slowly to death and no one who is a law abiding citizen has the resources to stop them………………

  5. If you have an illegal gun in California for your protection, keep it shut your mouth and only use it if you absolutely need it to protect your life! Better being judged by 12 then carried by 6!

  6. i am trying very hard to get my whole family completely out of this god forsaken liberal pile of shit state i am a native borne home owner borne in 1939 and have watched these less than human being politicians destroying one of the most beautiful states in our country for now going on 30 years of full blown destruction. what needs to be done is what was done in france during the french revolution. after they cut off the heads of king louis an antoinette they got they senators an then the statesmen and then the LIBERALS , and then they got the hell out of france and came to america and then they took 150 approx years to get things this fucked up, what caused the revolution was that the price of bread one loaf of bread cost one months average persons wages, so take a good look at the taxes that they are constantly putting on us up up up every day now they want to take away prop 13 what a joke they are , i’ve had it . WE MUST VOTE THEM ALL OUT California democrats are shit trash from HELL “

  7. Californicatia is the primary state that has many hunters in the north but the gangs in the south are making the southern politicos want to rid ALL persons in the state of their firearms. The problem with anti-gunners is they think gangs and crooks will just turn in their guns. FACT is, that the only thing that happens is soft targets will be “open season” for crime. EXAMPLE : Chicago and gun control with HIGH gun crime rate.
    EXAMPLE : two towns near Atlanta, GA with GUN REQUIRED laws = VERY LOW overall crime rate.

  8. California wants to divide their state up. I think we just need to make 49 instead.

  9. While I advocate legal arrest for irresponsible parents leaving firearms unsecured for kids to take to school, I also take note of England where even police do not carry guns, are looking at the rise of knives an are considering banning knives. When does it finally soak in that we have a people problem and not an arms problem? Ban all guns and knives and watch a huge rise in other forms of weapons used to kill others. How far do we chase new weapons after banning a predecessor? How far do we chase down sources of weapons for killings before we wake up to the fact that people are the problem as we have no small choices for weapons?
