If the average California resident isn't allowed to open carry, how are security guards able to?

I think it's called an "Exposed Firearm Permit".

I think that most security gaurds are on Private Property too. It would seem to me that anyone in CA can open carrey on thier own property, or posibly a range that allowed it???

you have to go through training to get your Guard Card, Pepper Spray training, Handcuff, Baton, sometimes Taser, and then you train to earn your exposed firearm permit, you also have to re-qualify with it twice a year with each individual caliber that you choose to get certified for.

You are only allowed to wear it in the car on your way to work, and of course at work.

basically permission from the government, and permission from your client. you dont just get hired, strap on a gun and go work.

So far, the answers are mostly correct... the California Department of Consumer Affairs (These are the same people who issue licenses for cosmotologists.) issues a permit for armed security. It is a revocable and regulated privilege for commercial interests and has nothing to do with an essential liberty.

It could be argued that economic freedoms are an essential liberty, but I digress... :D

So there is no misinformation, these are NOT the same things. A guard card means you were taught the in and outs of your legal authority with the public. The firearms permit requires proficiency in sidearm use and knowledge of legal sidearm use.

I like your line of thought & agree.

However... the gov may not see it this way, otherwise we would not be taxed for our labours.
