A: In California, you cannot transport a loaded firearm in a vehicle, and you cannot have a loaded firearm on private property unless you have permission. You can only possess a loaded firearm while you are pursuing your wildlife, and only when you are on property in which you are permitted. The exception to that is if you have a concealed carry permit.
The United States Supreme Court in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, recently issued a decision that will likely impact the issuance of concealed carry permits in California. The Court struck down a New York gun law regulating concealed carry permits which required that applicants for concealed carry permits demonstrate “proper cause” to carry a handgun in public for self-defense. The Court struck down as unconstitutional, the “proper cause” language in the New York law. The Supreme Court decision will result in an increase in the issuance of concealed carry permits in California.
