I. INTRODUCTION

. You may find a downloadable copy of these Codesections at www.calgunsfoundation.org/downloads, along with many other helpful documents like this one.A list of California’s 58 sheriff’s and sheriff’s offices, including links to address and phone contact information, islocated at http://bit.ly/calsheriffs.Within the Code, the State of California establishes a standard framework for the issuance of a license to carry.“Licensing authorities” with the power to issue LTCs are defined as “the sheriff of a county” (§26150) and “thechief or other head of a municipal police department of any city or city and county”; however, the latter may onlyissue to residents of the municipality in which they have jurisdiction. (§26155(a)(3).). County sheriffs may issueto any qualified resident of the county in which they have jurisdiction, as well as some non-residents who qualifyfor an employment-based LTC. (§26150(a)(3).)A resident of a municipal political subdivision of a county may apply to either or both the chief of police of thecity or the sheriff of the county in which they reside. A licensing authority (such as a sheriff) may not require anapplicant to apply and be denied by another licensing authority (e.g. a police chief) as a condition of application.The California Court of Appeals’ binding decision in
Salute v. Pitchess
(61 Cal.App.3d 557 (1976) holds: “It isthe duty of the sheriff to make such an investigation and determination, on an individual basis, on everyapplication” [under §12050, now §26150]. See also §26175(g)

As of January 1, 2012, the Penal Codes relating to dangerous weapons were both renumbered and reorganized. The currentCodes (§§26150-26225) were adapted from §§12050-12054. For more on the Penal Code renumbering, please visit theCalguns Foundation Wiki at wiki.calgunsfoundation.org.

See §26175(g): “An applicant shall not be required to complete any additional application or form for a license…”Requiring an applicant to first apply to another licensing authority would be to require an “additional application”; therefore,such policy would be unlawful.
3
§26190(g) states: “Except as authorized pursuant to this section, no requirement, charge, assessment, fee, or condition thatrequires the payment of any additional funds by the applicant, or requires the applicant to obtain liability insurance, may beimposed by any licensing authority as a condition of the application for a license.” To require an applicant to first apply toanother licensing authority would be to impose a proscribed “requirement, charge, assessment, fee, or condition”.
4
See §26185(a)(3): “No license shall be issued by any licensing authority until after receipt of the report from the department[of Justice].”
5
§26165(a)-(c) describes the type of training that may be required of an applicant. Notably, the statutes relating to the coursefor new applicants does not establish any minimum number of hours. However, the course of training for renewal applicantsmust be “no less than four hours [].” The training requirement for renewal applicants is explicitly waived for “any personcertified by the licensing authority as a trainer for purposes of [§26165]”.
