Default Contra Costa County - anyone here receive a CCW permit?

Has anyone here applied and received one? What was the process like?

I attempted to find examples from the Sheriff’s office of what they deemed acceptable for meeting the Just Cause qualification, and they said they would not disclose that information because it would have a detrimental affect on public safety, citing government code 6255.

Not giving citizens a way of knowing if they would be approved before paying the $129 application fee sounds like it would be illegal to me, but any information from people who’ve been through the process would be helpful.

Contra Costa is virtually a no issue county. There are a few out there but not too many that have gone to average people.

Thanks for the info and links. So judging from Paladin’s post, even a ‘Just Cause’ won’t qualify you, but a ‘Heightened Good Cause’ due to the political climate.

So no open carry, CCW nearly impossible to obtain. Short of a SCOTUS ruling, no chance for the average citizen to obtain a CCW in Contra Costa?

That's an accurate summary for 2019.
