    May issue states and gun grabbing cities…

    This is more of a hypothetical situation I was thinking about the other day. Let’s use two states as an example. California and New York, they are both "May issue" states. They also both have very strict gun grabbing cities, New York City and San Francisco. I know from people who live in these states that depending on the county you are in its almost shall issue in some areas, and you can get a CCW pretty easy if you flip thru all the loops required of you. If I were a resident of say Shasta County in California and acquired a CCW permit would it be feasible and/or legal to enter San Francisco with a firearm? Even though I’d probably run into more trouble then not while in the city?

    I know if you have a CA. CCW permit it is good for the entire state, however NYC has it's own set of gun laws and I don't believe a CCW permit issued in another area of the state is valid there. As I said I don't believe this is the case. These are two states I try and avoid.

    depends if CA has state pre-emption of firearm laws, which I doubt. You can break a city law and be totally guilty even if it would not have been illegal somewhere else.

    CA is more like PA. A permit issued by a rural PA county sheriff is good in Philadelphia, but you're guaranteed to be severely hassled if you're get stopped and they find a gun on you. Especially if you're in the minority. Oops, scratch that. I meant if you're a Hispanic, Asian or African. White, non-Hispanics are now the minority in Philadelphia.
    PA is also a "Shall issue" state, unlike CA... so by law they have to honor it. The philly police can hassle you left and right... if you have a permit the most they can do is ask you to leave private property.

    Here's what I believe to be the "skinny" on NYC and CA:

    CA: CCW Permit good Statewide (Even San Francisco)
    NYC: NY State Permit NOT HONORED

    A California CCW License is good statewide. California pre-empts local enactment of laws regulating firearm possession.
    For information on getting your CCW License in California please visit CalCCW.
