View Full Version : LUCC & PC 171b Public Buildings

01-25-2011, 12:06 PM
From the San Fernando Police Bulletin recently posted, I noticed they cited PC 171b regarding public buildings and no firearm possession.

So I want to confirm my understanding of the Penal Code.

If I am Locked Unloaded Conceal Carry, I could not bring it into any public building

"171b. (a) Any person who brings or possesses within any state or local public building..."

An exemption would be only if I had a Pc12050

"(3) A person holding a valid license to carry the firearm pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 12050) ..."

This in essence means Libraries, Community Centers, DMVs, City Halls, Corporate Yards, County facilities, etc... are a gun free zone unless you have a CCW then all is well.

Since I live in Los Angeles County that is pretty much moot until Calguns persuades Sherriff Baca to issue permits.

PS Direct link to statute


So on my list to be gun and ammo free, within all public buildings, Post Offices and Parking Lots, School Grounds and Parking Lots.

Are there any others I am missing?

PS Too bad Los Angeles County will be one of the last to fall to shall issue CCW :(

Thank you.
