Active law enforcement officers with proper credentials can purchase non CA compliant AR15's (also classified as assault weapons in CA) and so-called “assault pistols” as long as the firearm is being used for duty use only.

Active law enforcement officers, judges, and DA's are able to have ammunition shipped directly to them with proper credentials on file.
Standard capacity magazines (also classified as high capacity magazines in CA) can also be purchased with proper credentials on file. However, they must be shipped to an FFL with with a CA Large Capacity Magazine Permit.
Active law enforcement officers with proper credentials can purchase stun guns, tasers, defense spray, and batons.
