Hello, I live in El Dorado County and I am trying to get a FFL license at my home the planning department says no you can not have a ffl business licenses to sell firearms at non commercial house in El Dorado County. While talking to the planning dept. he said what if there was a different way or business to sell them (I took this as there might be a different way he cant tell me about)Does any one know if there is? I am not looking for a storefront at my house but a buy appt. only setup. ANY info will help just trying to make some extra money for my family. Thanks Keith

Sounds like he's saying they'll issue a permit only for a commercial location.

You may have done this, but see also the sticky here --
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
- Thomas Sowell
I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.

Thanks for the reply I have read that. I was wondering if there was any other way without commercial building being involved to much over head for my wife and I. They have issued licenses to a residential house in the past in this county just cant ask them how they did it I would be competition to the people I would have to ask. I got the feeling this morning with the planning dept. there was another way that is why I posted here (hope) thank you

Best thing is to search your city code for "home-based business". When I called my planning department the clerk said "It's not allowed" but wouldn't cite reasons. When pressed, her reply was "It's just not allowed" which is really frustrating. So I took it upon myself to search the city code which was quite clear that it wasn't restricted, and we know that anything not explicitly restricted is allowed. I know for a fact that cities like San Jose definitely don't allow home-based firearms dealers or even gunsmithing, as written in city code.
