Gov. Brown Vetoes Bill Expanding California Law on Gun Violence Restraining Orders


He added, “We are setting consistent and sensible standards statewide for concealed carry permits to ensure weapons do not end up in untrained hands. To put it simply, California is being smart on guns.”

At present, the state law does not require any minimum training standard for people applying for CCW permits. It has no requirement for live-fire shooting exercise. It only sets a maximum training standard of 16 hours, which means a person can obtain a CCW permit with little or no training or without even firing a gun.
