The KGET report explained that during his attempt to comply with state law, Kirschenmann submitted photos of “an illegally modified” AR-15 to the California DOJ. This prompted an investigation by the DOJ that culminated in a raid of Kirschenmann’s home. Once inside the property, investigators allegedly discovered several unregistered “assault weapons,” a pair of suppressors, and what California terms a “multiburst trigger activator.”*
Kirschenmann was arraigned on May 21 and given $150,000 bail. The farmer faces nine felony counts of*unlawful possession of an “assault weapon,”*two counts of*possessing a suppressor, and one charge of*possessing a “multiburst trigger activator.”*There is nothing in the report to indicate Kirschenmann violated any federal laws or that he has misused his firearms in any manner.
