QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

(( In Character ))

Q: Where do I find laws regarding the possession of firearms?
  • The laws governing control of deadly weapons, including firearms, are found in Title 9 of the Penal Code, beginning at section (9)01. These laws define the various types of dangerous weapons as well as restrictions and crimes related to their manufacture, sale, possession, and transportation.
Is there a limit on the number of handguns that I can own or purchase?
  • There is no limit to the number of handguns that you may own but you are generally limited to purchasing no more than one handgun in any 30-day period.

    (( As an OOC note, you must only ever be in possession of one of each weapon you have applied for and cannot mass store or stockpile weapons in any way whatsoever. ))
May I carry a concealed firearm in San Andreas?
  • An individual who wishes to open carry their firearm must first obtain a license to purchase a firearm. Any person who owns a license to purchase a firearm is permitted to open carry in designated the open carry zone. For more information, refer to the Open Carry Assurance and Regulation Act of 2016.
Who is prohibited from owning or possessing firearms?
  • Any person who has a conviction for any misdemeanor listed in Penal Code Title 1 or for any felony, or is addicted to the use of any narcotic drug, or has been held involuntarily as a danger to self or others.
How much is the state fee when purchasing a firearm?
  • The total state fee is $10,000 which covers the costs of the background checks and transfer registry.

    (( The applicant is required to do /charity and pay $10,000. The screenshot must be unedited. The only exception to the unedited screenshot rule is admins and testers. ))
Can my driving record prevent me from purchasing a firearm?
  • Yes. If you have a conviction for a firearms-prohibiting offense, such as felony drunk driving, your driving record would affect your ability to purchase a firearm. Furthermore, your driver's license must be valid. A revocation, outstanding ticket, or fine may cause your license to be invalid.

(( Out Of Character ))

My message(s) is/are in the Outbox. What does that mean?
  • Messages in the "Outbox" means they were successfully sent to the recipient but they have not opened/read your message. Messages in the outbox can still be edited but if the recipient opens/reads your message you will not be able to edit it (even if you were in the middle of editing it). Once your sent message is opened/read, it will be placed in the "Sent messages" folder.
How do I appeal an OOC disqualification?
  • You can file a disqualification appeal if you believe that you were falsely or improperly banned. All appeals will be thoroughly reviewed by the Firearms Licensing Division Command Staff, who will launch an investigation into the matter if deemed necessary.

    Message the Commanding Officer, Firearms Licensing Division. Your message should contain the nature of the ban, the circumstances surrounding it, and why you should be unbanned. You should expect a response or a letter of acknowledgment within 48 hours from the time the appeal was sent.
I have a complaint against a Firearms Licensing Officer. Who do I contact?
  • Message the Commanding Officer, Firearms Licensing Division.
I have a question that is not listed in this topic, what should I do?

Greetings, I'm contacting this department regarding the condition on open carry and concealed carry. To the best of my knowledge, and to ensure the safety of keeping a clean criminal record, issues on carrying a firearm on private property need to be further acknowledge by the licensing department.


Private Property
Many firearm owners perform various task with their firearm such as cleaning, hunting, sporting. However, many of this tasks require for the personal to either open carry, or conceal their firearm. If I'm correct with my information, open carry is perfectly legal on private property, or private property in which you have permission to do so, such as Goodguns, which has open lanes for practicing firing, hunting lands with a rifle, or when working an armed guard.


This sections seems to be only covering the PPS/Guard Card, however if you can help me with this CCP issue, I'll be gradly appreciative. I've been a CCP holder since 2013, however, I'm also certain, conceal carrying a firearm is legal for property owned or rented. What I am unsure of is, is it legal to conceal carry, without a CCP permit, on a property in which you are given direct permission to do so? From reasoning if the statement above is false, potential CCP instructors will know the person must get a CCP first before seeking live practice/training in the regard of concealed carry.


State Property
To my knowledge, open carry is not allowed on state property, such as, sidewalks, roadways, etc. This is void in the regards of being a law-enforcement officer. However, the question I want to ask is dependent on some other question so I will address that one first which involves a statement in the guard card license usage section.

This following statement seems kind of confusing: "The license holder may only open carry their firearm while immediately operating in the capacity as a security guard and within their area of business. This means guards may not carry a firearm during body guard duties, unless conducted within the premises of their employer."

Is this saying only security guards can open carry?
(Only active LEOs are allowed to conceal carry as security/bodyguards.)
If the above is true, when performing bodyguard duties are you considered a security guard?
If the above statement is true, conducting as a bodyguard within the premises of one's employer, does this mean only on the employers premises (like owned property), or anywhere as long they are next to the employer?
If it is the case of anywhere, is open carry allowed on state property when operating in the capacity of a bodyguard and guarding one's employer?


I hope my questions don't come off too complex-ed or rude. I'm looking to find a better understanding of the permits instead of acting on assuming to protect myself, and others from fines/arrests that might arise if otherwise. These are the missing pieces of my understanding.

Thanks,
David Wolf

David Wolf,

Thank you for posting your questions/concerns and I will be doing my best to answer them in order from the first question you wrote to the last one. Some answers may contain the relevant information to answer more then one of your questions.

- Carrying concealed without a permit is considered illegal. Answering that question directly is difficult to answer so what I can say is that if someone does not have a CCW permit they can't even have their firearm with them as they transport it to the private property. The only time a firearm can be put into a car if they have a license to purchase a firearm but no CCW permit is either if it's from their house to private residence, business to private residence, or when hunting.

- Those with a valid San Andreas Guard Card can and are only allowed to open carry as long as they are operating within the capacity of a Security Guard and/or Body Guard.
- No, a security guard protects a business and acts as an agent for their employer while a body guard guards a specific person. Acting as a body guard is only considered legal as long as you are guarding a person on a house/business with your employer being the owner/leaser of said property and has specifically assigned you to act as the stated person's guard. A good example of acting as a body guard would be that you are hired as a Body Guard for a Betting Shop with your specific job being to guard the High-Stakes dealer; The person hiring you is the owner/leaser of that Betting Shop.
- Open Carrying on state property is never allowed (Exempt for on duty LEOs) and is considered a misdemeanor as well as the revocation of all valid firearm licenses under the said person's name. It would be best to read and understand how far the property lines are, as well to avoid exiting them while armed unless in a life-threatening situation to avoid any "accidents."

I do hope this sums up your questions without causing confusion. Please let me know if there are any further questions you have.

Are we allowed to conceal our firearms in a secured holster and carry?

Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. If you want to test a man’s character, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except upon the side of mercy.

The holster must be "concealed," meaning it is not visible to others. This is only legal provided that you have a CCW or a LEO CCW.

You can not have an exposed holster unless you have a valid San Andreas Guard Card (LEO CCWs let you guard with a concealed firearm) and are actively operating as a Guard hired by an employer and are following the regulations and guidelines for the Guard Card.

Where is the official map of "valid" streets in San Andreas.

(( I keep getting put on pending, even though no document states anything about an official register of street names - only about valid street name attempts (which mine is). ))

You used Sokolov Road, however, Sokolov Avenue is the correct address.

(( Good day.

I have a question regarding two particular licensed firearms for sale.
As listed, the models Colt O4091U and Ed Brown's SF3-BB-CAL2 are certified in state of CA (hence, SA), however, due to my not-so-deep knowledge of firearms, I am confused as which to portray in it's way. The 04091U is a Colt Combat Commander, while Ed Brown's a California's Special Forces Approved, but both are simply variants of the 1911 model, is that correct?

Furthermore, second question, the list is familiar to me - is it from the official California weapon licensing law? If so, I stumbled upon a relatively new article while I was at my police studies. http://oag.ca.gov/sites/oag.ca.gov/file ... yadded.pdf

(( Hello. I've got a question about handcuffs.

Acording the Guard Instruction Manual:
WHAT IS EXCESSIVE FORCE?

Examples of excessive force include knocking unconscious an unarmed suspect when he is only trying to leave the scene. Handcuffs may be used on persons who have resisted or on suspects you think may be trying to resist or escape.
So... are LEO CCW/GP users technically able to handcuff unruly suspects whilst actively working as legal security guards within his employer's premise? Then, I've checked with an admin if people use /tie with proper RP and both parties consent, there's no problem at all. Even as a security guard ICly.
I am aware that normal citizens do not have access to this /handcuff command, however off-duty peace officers do. What is your opinion about that? Is there any server rule against the /tie one? ))
