According to California Penal Code Section 12025 PC, it is a crime to carry a concealed weapon in your vehicle or “on your person.” If you are found with a concealed firearm, such as a handgun, you could be looking at jail time, a hefty fine and probation. Even if the firearm doesn’t work, you could still be found guilty of violating state law.

The prosecution will be looking to prove a couple of things in your case to ensure you pay for your alleged crime.

If they are successful, you will be convicted of a crime and will have to pay the consequences.
