YES, California requires that all gun locks be approved by the California Department of Justice. The California DOJ requires that a gun meet certain standards as approved by the “National Technical Systems” out of Wichita, Kansas.
On Monday, March 23, 2020 JD2Security received notification that it passed all tests with the “National Technical Systems”. April 15th, 2020, the California Department of Justice notified us that we are compliant with their firearms safety devices (FSD).
