California: Concealed carry law may change
According to California law, the sheriff may issue a concealed weapons permit to persons of good moral character who prove to the sheriff that they have "good cause" for the permit. Assembly Bill 2053 would define "good cause" to carry a concealed handgun to include self defense, defending the life of another or preventing crime that threatens human life. Permit applicants who give one of these three reasons why they need the permit would not have to prove their claim.
