Who Can or Cannot Possess a Gun or Weapons
Firearms or guns are allowed by most adults in California, according to the state law. An ownership license is not necessary in possessing a gun; hence, it is very easy to make a purchase from the local firearm store just like making produce in the local grocery store. California residents may legally keep a gun in their homes or offices for protection against intruders and robbers.
Guns are also allowed to be carried from place to place inside a locked container. There are individuals who are not allowed by law to own a handgun like:
- Convicted felons in any jurisdiction
- Drug addicts
- Convicted persons in various misdemeanor offenses
- Mentally ill or deranged mind individuals
A prohibition on gun possession automatically prohibits the possession of ammunition by California law. Hence, the possession of guns in California is quite easy with a valid safety certificate to make a purchase.
Criminal penalties are imposed on those who commit crimes using guns whether they are permitted to own a gun or not. Crimes that are committed using firearms would subject the defendant to the weapons crime laws of California.
