Do you need a permit to own a .22 air rifle?

.22 air rifle just for target shooting from 30 yards away. I'm not planning to shoot squirrel or birds.

I live in North California near San Francisco. DO I need a permit?
Update: any air rifle retailer in the bay area?
Update 2: local educated adults? I'm a retired fireman and I need to pick up a hobby....
