California Farmer Tries To Comply With Gun Registration – Has Guns Confiscated & Faces Felony Charges

Does “shall not be infringed” mean anything to these tyrants?

Californians are doing their best to comply with unconstitutional gun regulations that lead to gun confiscation in the Golden State, but in many instances, residents are discovering that even their good faith attempts to comply with the tyrannical laws are bringing them under the boot of the Department of In-Justice of California.

The latest story about a farmer who had his guns confiscated and is facing felony charges comes from local NBC affiliate KGET.

Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann, CEO of Scott Kirschenmann Farms, Inc., grows potatoes that are used by Frito Lay to make potato chips.

The DOJ allegedly began to investigate Kirschenmann when he submitted photos of what they claim was an illegally modified AR-15 style rifle.

As a result, the DOJ raided his home in April. Following the raid, the DOJ discovered a dozen guns, 230 rounds of ammunition and two silencers. That’s not really a big deal, but he’s in Communist California.

The NRA-ILA chimed in on what took place.

Kirschenmann was arraigned on May 21 and given $150,000 bail. The farmer faces nine felony counts of unlawful possession of an “assault weapon,” two counts of possessing a suppressor, and one charge of possessing a “multiburst trigger activator.” There is nothing in the report to indicate Kirschenmann violated any federal laws or that he has misused his firearms in any manner.

The California DOJ’s persecution of Kirschenmann, following what appears to have been an honest attempt to obtain assistance in complying with state law, will sow further mistrust between the state government and gun owners.

NBC reports:

Retired KCSO Commander Joe Pilkington is a court recognized firearms expert. He could not speak directly to Kirschenmann’s case but says the laws are changing so frequently, it’s often hard to keep up with the latest regulations.

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

A new state law requires assault-style weapons be registered by the end of June.

Pilkington recommends anyone who isn’t sure about the process go through a federally licensed firearms dealer.

“There is this self-registration application on the Department of Justice website, but it may be better to talk to an FFL. Someone who has a license, to talk through whatever these complications are.”
