Responsible gun ownership and good citizenship go hand in hand. Achieving both requires understanding the gun rights and laws in your home state and beyond. California is home to 39.6 million people and has granted around 121,000 concealed carry (CC) licenses as of August 2021, meaning only 0.31% of the population are allowed to CC.
Understanding reciprocity – how your gun rights translate across state lines – is essential to California concealed carry. A concealed weapons license from California is honored in 27 states, but California doesn’t recognize permits or licenses from anywhere else. The minimum age to CC is 21 and the license is valid for two years.
