Current law authorizes the sheriff of a county or a chief or other head of a police department of a city or a city and county to issue a license to carry a concealed firearm upon proof that the person applying for the license is of good moral character, that good cause exists for the issuance, that the applicant satisfies specified residency requirements, and that the applicant has completed a course of specified training. This bill would make a license issued to carry a concealed firearm valid for any period of time not to exceed 5 years. The bill would make conforming changes.
