From these, it appears that at least 1,500 registered.

The California Department of Justice has already prepared the confiscation letter. Guess who will get the letter? The form letter itself says it will go to those citizens who were listed in "the Department of Justice’s assault weapon registration file." The people who registered during the previous Attorney General’s "amnesty" are on the list. End Quote
The Internet news service, WorldNetDaily, obtained unreleased copies of the confiscation letter. To the registered gun owners, the letter reads: "If you possess a prohibited assault weapon ... but you did not register the weapon until after March 30, 1992, you may be subject to criminal prosecution. You are advised to relinquish the assault weapon to a police or sheriff’s office..."
Compensation for owners? None. The state’s plan is to give the gun owners 90 days to turn in their semiautomatic rifles -- and get nothing.
