Post San Jose PD CCW info

The main advantage of living in a city that issues is you get "two bites at the apple": you can apply with your city's PD. If you're denied, you can then try again with the Sheriff's Office.

San Jose PD issues. Under "Records", there's a column on the left side that's title "Related Information". One of them is "CCW Procedures" (Besides us gunnies, does the average resident know what "CCW" stands for?) That takes you to a page with the following:

Quote:
CCW - License To Carry a Concealed Weapon

Carrying a Concealed Weapon
San Jose Police Department’s Good Cause Statement


In support of legislation enacted in CA Senate Bill 610 passed on September 1, 2011 and effective January 1, 2012, we have listed the San Jose Police Department's Good Cause Statement below.

Good cause shall exist if [1] there is convincing evidence of a clear and present danger to life or of great bodily injury to the applicant, his (or her) spouse, or dependent child, [2] which cannot be adequately dealt with by existing law enforcement resources, and [3] which danger cannot be reasonably avoided by alternative measures, and [4] which danger would be significantly mitigated by the applicant's carrying of a concealed firearm.
From: http://www.sjpd.org/records/ccw.html

I added the numbers in brackets to the above statement re. GC to make it clear all of the conditions that must be present simultaneously for your GC to pass. It's basically CA AG John Van de Kamp's 1970s opinion on GC. Depending upon how tightly/loosely it is interpreted, it would be either dark or light red on the CA CCW GC map.

To get a GC determination you have to have a $150 psych eval + pay a $20 application fee. If your GC passes, you have to pay another $80 for permit processing to get your CCW.

Under Records, and then under just "Public Safety Permit Fee Schedule" (I had to reformat it since I can't do tabs.)

Default Santa Clara Co. city PDs re. CCWs

The main advantage of living in a city that issues is you get "two bites at the apple": you can apply with your city's PD. If you're denied, you can then try again with the Sheriff's Office.

The Town of Los Gatos/Monte Sereno PD issues CCWs

Unfortunately, there's no info re. their GC standard. Probably very restrictive.

Quote:
Concealed Carry Permits (CCW)

The Chief of Police is given the statutory discretion to issue a license to carry a firearm to residents within the community (Penal Code § 26150; Penal Code 26155).

In order to qualify for a license to carry a firearm, the applicant must meet certain requirements, including:
(a) Be a resident of the Town of Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Department (Penal Code §26150; Penal Code § 26155).

(b) Be at least 21 years of age (Penal Code § 29610).

(c) Fully complete an application that will include substantial personal information. Much of the information in the application may be subject to public access under the Public Records Act.

(d) Be free from criminal convictions that would disqualify the applicant from carrying a firearm. Fingerprints will be required and a complete criminal background check will be conducted.

(e) Be of good moral character (Penal Code § 26150; Penal Code § 26155). The applicant shall provide at least three letters of character reference.

(f) Show good cause for the issuance of the license (Penal Code § 26150; Penal Code §26155).

(g) Pay all associated application fees. These fees are set by statute and may not be refunded if the application is denied.

(h) Provide proof of ownership or registration of any firearm to be licensed.

(i) Be free from any psychological conditions that might make the applicant unsuitable for carrying a firearm (Penal Code §26190).

(j) Complete required training (Penal Code § 26165).

The application process for a license to carry a firearm shall consist of two phases. Upon the successful completion of each phase, the applicant will advance to the next phase until the process is completed and the license is either issued or denied.

If there are questions regarding the application process, contact Sergeant Kalipo Kauweloa at KKauweloa@LosGatosCA.gov or by telephone at (408) 354-6848.

You can try but I highly doubt they will issue you a permit.

Just as you can only apply to the SO of the county of your residence, so also you can only apply to the PD of the city, if any, of your residence.

At least that's what the law says.

I tried applying to Monterey County for a non-resident 90 days work permit. They denied me. They said I didn’t qualify the residency requirement and told me to apply to Santa Clara. Why would any anti CCW PD or SO issue to a non-resident when they won’t even issue to their own? Monterey is shall issue. I’m referring to the PD and SO of the Bay Area.

This does not make any sense. You can't get a 90 day work permit from your own SO.

Many IAs do not issue the 90 day business permits even though they can.

Do you know if SJPD issues a little more leniently than the Santa Clara SO?

The first post in this thread is re. SJPD's CCW policy, so you know they're very restrictive too. I numbered all the qualifications required and they ALL must be met.

If you have a very good GC (e.g., stalker who's been reported to the police and restraining order granted or you carry lots of cash due to your business and have been attacked in the past (and reported)), then I'd go for it. Apply first with SJPD and if you're denied (and denied after appealing your initial denial), apply and do the same with Santa Clara SO. (I'd wait until after the Nov 6th election re. SCSO: If Smith wins, apply whenever you're done with SJPD. If she loses, apply after January w/Hirokawa.) See the advice I gave phdo in post #731 and following at:https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/...352799&page=19

In another thread, IIRC the main Santa Clara Co. CCW Info thread, I went back 4 years and could not find a single applicant who's app wasn't dependent upon us winning Peruta. IOW, we're all operating off of ignorance re. SCSO/Smith's issuance practices. Similarly, I don't recall anyone in the past 4 years saying they applied with SJPD.

So, you place your bets, you take your chances -- or not.

Default Morgan Hill PD

This is my first post here, but thought I'd add that Morgan Hill does do CCW processing. I emailed the chief a while back and got this reply:

"We issue permits; however, the process requires the showing of good cause. Please contact Lisa Cardenas, copied here, for more information."
Lisa's email is Lisa.Cardenas@morganhill.ca.gov

I don't know what constitutes GC with them, but I'll be filing for one this week.

Given the horses *** gun law that was just passed in Morgan Hick I wish you good luck. According to the draft of the ordinance that I saw you need a permit to shoot a BB gun in your backyard.
