AB 1057- What happens if you get caught with a privately made firearm or ghost gun? 

The recent push for gun control has led to some interesting changes in the law. One of these is the new law regarding ghost guns. Ghost guns are privately made firearms that lack a commercially-applied serial number, making them untraceable. This new law, AB 1057, will allow teachers, co-workers, law enforcement, employers and family members to ask a judge to seize ghost guns from a person they deem to be a danger to themselves or the public. If you are caught with a ghost gun, you could face a gross misdemeanor charge. You could face up to 364 days in jail and up to a $5,000 fine if you are convicted of this crime. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your arrest, you may need to undergo counseling for domestic violence, drugs, or alcohol. This new law is designed to help keep people safe by giving those who are close to someone with a ghost gun the ability to intervene. If you or someone you know has been affected by this new law, please reach out for help. There are many resources available to assist you in understanding your rights and options.
