Can you explain each condition?

Most are standard for all Concealed Carry Weapons:

  1. Consume any alcoholic beverage. (DOJ)
  2. Alcohol consumption causes the most problems. You cannot drink while carrying.
  3. Commit any criminal act. Must report any arrest to the Sheriff within 10 days. If arrested you must notify the Sheriff regardless of conviction.
  4. Be in a place having a primary purpose of dispensing alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption. (DOJ) A place with “primary purpose of selling alcohol” is a bar. If you have to be 21 to go inside, it is a bar.
  5. Be under the influence of any drug, or alcohol. (DOJ) Alcohol, drugs, and medications can all result in being under the influence.
  6. Use any illegal drug. All illegal drug use is prohibited.
  7. Refuse to show license or surrender weapon to law enforcement upon request. (DOJ)
    If asked by law enforcement to show your license or surrender your weapon, you must comply. This most likely will be temporary, during a contact only. Most often the license and weapon are returned at the conclusion of the contact. The license is the property of the issuing agency. If there is an issue, the officer may take the license until a review is conducted. This will come after an administrative hearing.
  8. Impede any peace officer. (DOJ)
    Impeding any peace officer may simply be refusal to cooperate to their lawful request.
  9. Represent self as a peace officer to any person, if not so employed. (DOJ)
    Claiming to be a peace officer while not one.
  10. Possess weapon any place where prohibited by law or sign. (DOJ)
    If a location or business prohibits weapons, you cannot carry even with a CCW license. They may have a sign or may simply ask you to remove the weapon from their business, you must comply.
    Schools, you can drive in and pick up your kids, but if go onto the campus for an event such as a play of sporting events, most prohibit weapons.
  11. Unjustifiably display weapon. (DOJ)
    Display weapon when not justified, either in a hostile manner or simply display it. A concealed weapon is intended to be concealed until it is needed for self-defense.
  12. Carry a concealed weapon not listed on the license. (DOJ)
    Only weapons on the license may be carried.
  13. Fail to disclose, when stopped or detained by law enforcement, your status as a CCW license holder when you are carrying a weapon on your person or in your vehicle.
    All Placer license holders are required to inform law enforcement during a contact that they are a license holder and if they are carrying. It is much safer to have this information shared rather than have it come to light as a surprise to the officer.
