Senate Bill 449, pdf amended California Business and Professions Code section 21628.1 and added section 21628.2. Effective July 1, 2010, section 21628.2 requires secondhand dealers and pawnbrokers to electronically report firearms purchased, taken in pawn or accepted for sale on consignment, or accepted for auctioning to the California Department of Justice (DOJ).
To facilitate electronic reporting of secondhand/pawned firearms, the Bureau of Firearms (BOF) implemented a secure on-line reporting system, known as the Firearms Dealer Acquisition System (FDAS).
This electronic reporting process only applies to firearms and rescinds, and replaced the existing process of manually completing and mailing the "Pawnbroker/Secondhand Dealer Report" (JUS123) to local law enforcement agencies (LEAs).
For additional information, please refer to the FDAS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)or the FDAS Information Bulletin 2010-BOF-02.
To enroll and use FDAS, secondhand dealers and pawnbrokers must:
Once enrolled, secondhand dealers and pawnbrokers can log into FDAS and,
dependent upon their license type, select the type of firearm acquisition
transaction (Pawn, Consignment, or Buy) to submit.
For information on how to obtain a secondhand dealer or pawnbroker license, you must contact your local law enforcement agency (sheriff’s office or police department) with jurisdiction over your business.
FDAS is intended to be user-friendly. If you have any FDAS related questions, contact the BOF Training Information & Compliance Section at (916) 227-7527. The FDAS FAQs are also helpful in responding to questions regarding dealer compliance, electronic reporting and the FDAS enrollment process.
