here is the quote from the info pamphlet,
CCR Title 14, Div 3, Chap 1, s 4313 (a) Cannot carry in a State Park. However firearms may be possessed within temporary lodging or a vehicle
when unloaded and “packed, cased, or stored in a manner that will prevent their ready use.”
andis the Calccw link. Unless the State Beach has a dedicated camp ground, I would say probably not a good idea. As far as I know state beaches I believe are state parks, may be wrong if anyone else has more info please chime in.[URL="http://www.calccw.com/Forums/where-can-t-i-carry/1103-can-i-carry-ca-state-park.html"]here
As for inside a building or "on private Property" unless it is your own property I would also avoid UOC'ing here. Theseus, another poster, was arrested and convicted for carrying within a school zone while on private property accessible by the public. Stay away from malls, especially indoor ones, they seem to bring more attention and problems with security and LE. If your on private property be sure it is NOT accessible to the public (gated access, surrounded by a fence or wall.), and have the owners expressed permission to carry there. Malls by there very nature are open to the public so over zealous LE may attempt to arrest and charge you. Unless you want to be the test case.
