Hello,

I live in Contra Costa County, and I was wondering if there are any gun laws here in addition to state laws. Does everyone in this state follow the same laws? or can it vary somewhat by county? I ask this because I plan on buying an OLL rifle, and I wanted to know if the bullet button was legal in my county or not? I also don't want to get any suspicious stares at the local shooting range either.

Thanks

The state has 'occupied the whole field' of gun laws in some areas - see http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/State_Preemption_of_Some_Gun_Regulation

Essentially, the laws are statewide; a very few lower jurisdictions have some little twitches; for example, Los Angeles City has managed to make 1-handgun-in-30-days apply to private party transactions, while that does NOT apply anywhere else.

A 'bullet button' is a solution to a state law. You'll be fine.

Counties can have rules on where firearms can be fired, such as distance to structures, etc.

CCW law is made up by individual Sheriff's of every county.

Well, no, not really.

The law is state law. Since there are no objective criteria for a couple of terms in state law regarding LTC, e.g. 'good character' and 'good cause', by law they can interpret those as they wish.

A few do add some illegal or extra-legal embellishments ...

Local laws have a greater impact on ammunition sales and the willingness of certain companies to ship to the "restricted" cities.

I disagree, which is why I posted. If you don't see the distinction - and it's a technicality - well, there we are.
