Understanding Illegal Gun Possession in California

In this state, it is illegal to possess a gun without a license, and there are some people who will be denied a license due to developmental or moral grounds. This means that an individual younger than 18 cannot legally possess a gun, nor can a convicted felon. Even for someone who does have a license to own a firearm, you usually cannot carry a gun outside of your property without a concealed carry license.

Without the proper licensing, it is illegal to take a firearm within a school zone, a public place, or a state park. California law also generally prohibits carrying a gun if you are picketing, at a polling center, or taking public transportation. The law even stipulates that you cannot carry a gun at the Sacramento "Cal Expo" center. Unfortunately, all it takes is some confusion on the law, or one simple mistake, and you could find yourself in hot water. No matter how serious the charge may be, you could have powerful defenses to wield.
