Dangerous Weapons Control Act Cross Reference Chart Available


By Michel & Associates

Michel & Associates, P.C. is pleased to provide a comprehensive, consolidated, interactive, searchable, and downloadable cross-reference chart to help understand the 2012 reorganization of the Dangerous Weapons Control Act and other California statutes regulating firearms. The chart is now available at

The few correlation charts on this topic that are currently available from other sources provide the old Penal Code number and the new Penal Code number, or the new Penal Code number and its corresponding Title. The Michel & Associates chart goes one step further. It allows you to search and locate the old Penal Code number, the new Penal Code number, and the new Penal Code’s corresponding Title. Fields can be sorted to make this easier.

So, for example, if you want to look for a specific firearm statute, instead of skimming across numerous numbers or finding one or two statutes on point, the Michel & Associates chart allows you to enter the firearm term you are interested in, such as "assault weapon," and locate every statute that uses the "assault weapon" term. You will also find its corresponding old and new Penal Code numbers so you can research case law that has, or is currently, addressing your specific issue.
