Legal Training & Advice

Owning a firearm places you in a unique and complex legal environment both on the state and federal level.

On the federal level, 18 USC § 922 and Dept. of Justice rules and procedures govern firearm regulation, while, in California, the California Penal Code, Welfare and Institutions Code, and local ordinances create a myriad of legal entanglements that can easily ensnare an otherwise law-abiding citizen.  Throw a little case law into the mix and it’s even more complex.  The result is that often “the law” is difficult to rationally deduce. 

But ADI can help, through our monthly legal seminars, free office hours with ADI co-owner and use-of-force attorney Steven Lieberman, and private consultations.
