    You need a valid California License to Carry (CCW) in order to CCW in National Parks which reside within the boundaries of the state.

    If you reside in an incorporated City which has its own Municpal Police Department, then you may make an application with the Chief of Police for your city.

    If you live in an unincorporated area, you apply to your County Sheriff.

    In both cases you will likely have an administrative go-between where you actually get/submit the application.

    More information about obtaining a CA CCW can be found at www.CalCCW.com

    Good Luck

    As mjones said, there isn't a federal ccw license. You'd need to get a California CCW through your sheriff's office or possibly your police chief's office. Given that you live in San Mateo county, you'll probably have to have to show a crazy amount of "good cause" to obtain one.

    Really? All the info is available with a simple web search, or an easy look around this site.

    Troll?

    expresstowal,

    The law permits you access to the Parks UNDER STATE REGULATIONS for carrying firearms. If a state is no carry, the local area of the park is no carry. Likewise open and concealed. All permits and permissions come from the state.

    Im a little confused, i saw on the news that national parks authorized ccw with a permit, so it looks like its up to s.m. county sheriff to give me one or not, which would probally be not. even though its the law, sounds like a catch 22 thing. so why is everyone so excited about carrying ccw in national parks if you cant get a permit??

    It applies to unloaded open carry as well. In the past you had to make do when meeting a violent felon hiding in the woods (see current news about one such individual), bears, cougars, etc.
