"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!" -- Benjamin Franklin (More Quotes)

We welcome serious, committed applicants with Good Cause, from throughout California to contact us. We prefer you to contact us prior to your application so we may shepherd you though the process and ensure a solid, documented application. We are very interested in applicants residing in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, and Santa Clara counties. These counties have histories of CCW abuse but we will consider any applicant with a good case.

We have experienced, motivated attorneys and a gifted Private Investigator, all of whom are well versed in California CCW law, the 14th Amendment, state and Federal case law. This is but the first of many suits of this type we intend to file.

California Law

The (1977) Attorney General's Opinion on Good Causes
In 1977, the then California Attorney General made an "Opinion" to define what does, and does not, constitute "Good Cause." This definition, reasonable at the time but somewhat dated today, is still the litmus test used by many sheriffs/chiefs in deciding questions of eligibility.

California Penal Code Section 12025
"A person is guilty of carrying a concealed firearm when he or she does any of the following . . . . . "

California Penal Code Section 12031
"A person is guilty of carrying a loaded firearm when he or she carries a loaded firearm . . . "

California Penal Code Section 26150.
The legal basis for CCW issue.

California Penal Code Section 26202
Reason(s) for Denial
Upon making the determination of good cause pursuant to Section 26150 or 26155, the licensing authority shall give written notice to the applicant of the licensing authority's determination. If the licensing authority determines that good cause exists, the notice shall inform the applicants to proceed with the training requirements specified in Section 26165. If the licensing authority determines that good cause does not exist, the notice shall inform the applicant that the request for a license has been denied and shall state the reason from the department's published policy, described in Section 26160, as to why the determination was made.

P.C. 26205.5

The licensing authority shall give written notice to the applicant indicating if the license is approved or denied within 90 days of the initial application for a new license or a license renewal or 30 days after receipt of the applicant's criminal background check from the Department of Justice, whichever is later.

Legal Precedent Cases
