Concealed weapon privileges are not equally applied in the state of California. Under the discretion of local law enforcement agencies, permission to carry varies from one county or city to another.

While this is true, it may be more important to note that permission to carry varies dramatically not only in California, but throughout the entire country. Each state has its own regulations — ranging from virtually no concealed weapons allowed, to others having no restrictions at all. The majority of the more politically “liberal” states have the most controls on CCW issuances. California is one of them.
