Question Does Your IA Require a Psych Eval?

I have been in contact with my CCW instructor, and the question came up regarding Psychological Evaluations required by Issuing Agencies/Counties/Cities.

Does your IA, county or city require a Psychological Evaluation as a condition for the issuance of a CCW permit?

Please answer "Yes" or "No".

Please indicate your IA/County/City.

I'll start:

Tuolumne County. "No"

Thanks for participating!

San Bernardino County = No. But, for specific types of applicants, then yes.

If the applicant indicates on their application that they have had mental health issues in the past or are currently undergoing treatment for mental health issues or are currently taking medication for mental health issues, then, as part of the application process, they may require the applicant to take a psych exam, depending on the type of mental health issue and how long ago it occurred.
^This is also applies for all employment applicants to the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department.

SB 2 continues to leave psych evals to the discretion of the IA.

Hey, folks,

I would still like to hear from you about whether or not your IA requires a psych eval in order to get a CCW.

Once I get a good sampling, I'll send it to CRPA who is suing CA on this part of SB2.

Thanks for the replies thus far!

Did the state psych evaluations portion of SB2 get struck down too? I haven't had time to read through the ruling yet but I'm sure the state will appeal to their 9th Circus and get it rammed through anyway with their hand selected en banc panels.

As stated above "No". However, CRPA and others have filed a federal suit against the portions of SB2 regarding long wait times for permits, excessive fees, psych evals and personal references for permits.

I will second that Sacramento County is a No on requiring a psych evaluation. I picked up my Sac county permit last month.
The course for an initial permit is 16 hours with 100 rounds fired per handgun on the permit. Many of the stages require a handgun that holds at least six rounds. All of the stages are timed and most have reloads on the clock. (A tacit acknowledgement that more than ten rounds may be needed in a gunfight?) Qualifying with a five shot revolver is challenging but not impossible.
From my appointment date to permit issuance was 28 days. Cost was well over $500 - I am afraid to total it all up. No references were required.
