Concealed Firearms

What are the rules on carrying a concealed firearm?

According to California Penal Code Section 12050 a person must have the following qualifications in order to have a permit to carry a concealed weapon:

(1) (A) The sheriff of a county, upon proof that the person applying is of good moral character, that good cause exists for the issuance, and that the person applying satisfies any one of the conditions specified in subparagraph (D) and has completed a course of training as described in subparagraph (E), may issue to that person a license to carry a pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon the person.

A concealed firearm license is required when taking a firearm that can be concealed on a person anywhere outside of private property, including inside of a vehicle. Firearms held on your own personal property can be concealed upon the person without the need for a permit.

In a recent case decided in the San Joaquin valley, a person was charged with illegally carrying a concealed weapon when keeping it in the pouch of his car. Carrying a weapon, concealed or otherwise, is a practice not taken lightly by the law. If you are carrying, or thinking about carrying, a weapon then it is always advisable to confer with your local laws first.
