CALIFORNIA APPEALS COURT RULES: PROSECUTORS MUST PRODUCE WITNESS TESTIMONY TO PROVE FIREARM REGISTRATION

The California Court of Appeals has ruled that handgun registration information cannot be admitted into evidence at trial without accompanying witness testimony and an opportunity for a defense attorney to cross-examine that witness. People v. Sanchez (2011 DJ DAR 4269; DJ, 3/24/11; C/A 6th). This is good news for firearm owners.
