Non-hunters can carry a concealed weapon in California, as long as it is in your state-issued gun license holder's presence and out of public view. It is an offense under California law to conceal carry without a permit. However, if you are not a criminal offender, you may be allowed to carry a concealed weapon under certain circumstances. Your local police department will be able to tell you whether you are permitted to carry a concealed weapon and what forms you need to complete. If you find that you are not allowed to carry a concealed weapon, you should call your local police department to see what options you have.
Hunters must comply with certain laws when traveling across county lines with a firearm. For example, firearms are prohibited in national parks but it is not illegal to travel with firearms through national parks. Before traveling into another county with a firearm, make sure you know the rules regarding hunting licenses, special permits, and firearms possession in those counties. Additionally, check with local authorities to make sure that you have all necessary permissions before leaving home with a firearm.
Where weapons are not forbidden, muzzleloading shotguns, muzzleloading rifles, or archery gear may be used to hunt. Pistols and revolvers are legal for deer and bear hunting only in counties where rifle hunting is permitted. The use of pistols in lieu of firearms is now restricted by law in some states, including Pennsylvania.
The National Rifle Association's official position is that individuals should be allowed to carry loaded handguns for self-defense provided they have a license for the weapon they intend to carry and that they know how to use it safely. The organization supports legislation allowing licensed individuals to carry concealed weapons.
However, other organizations, such as Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, advocate for gun control measures like requiring a permit to purchase a handgun, limiting the size of magazines, and keeping guns out of the hands of those who would harm themselves or others.
In most states, you can carry a loaded firearm if you have a license for it. In some states, such as Illinois and New York, you must be able to pass a background check to obtain a license. Other states, such as Pennsylvania, require a training course to obtain a license.

The purpose of this section is to inform hunters about the legal requirements in South Carolina regarding when it is safe to go hunting with a firearm. It is important to understand that while most states allow firearms to be used for hunting purposes, they are not designed to be used as weapons. A firearm is a tool used for shooting arrows or bullets at game. It is very dangerous if not used properly because it can cause serious injury or death to yourself and others.
In South Carolina, you can use a firearm to hunt deer during the regular gun season. The firearm must be unloaded to be carried in your possession. You are allowed to carry a firearm along with a bow on private property where archery is permitted. If you choose to carry a firearm into national forests or wildlife refuges, you will need to obtain a permit from the local district ranger's office. These areas are usually found near towns across the state.
Using a rotating action muzzleloader for hunting During Any Legal Weapon seasons, hunters may use muzzleloaders with any ignition type (excluding matchlock), any legal sight, any propellant, or any bullet type, as long as the weapon fulfills the species' caliber limitations. Muzzleloaders are limited only by their capacity to hold six cartridges.
Firearms that are not muzzleloaders can be used during other season types. These include centerfire rifles and shotguns during regular game seasons, and crossbows during all-crossbow seasons. The only requirement for these weapons is that they must be "aimed"--i.e., their sights must be mounted on the barrel or bowstring release mechanism. Loaded firearms must be secured by a trigger lock or in a safe. Unloaded firearms are permitted inside city limits, but not in townships where firearms are prohibited. A valid hunting license is required for anyone who wishes to hunt with a firearm.
In addition to the basic requirements for all firearms (see above), some special regulations apply to muzzleloaders. They must be "portable", which means that they cannot weigh more than 10 pounds without limitation on size or design. Also, since most muzzleloaders are blackpowder-based, it is necessary to keep them away from children and avoid storing them in areas where there is a risk of fire.
No, Concealed firearms are used for personal defense, not hunting, according to Texas concealed handgun legislation. You're still hunting if you're using an archery bow. You may carry hidden if licensed, however the handgun may not be used for hunting, regardless of the species killed.
Concealed handguns are allowed in church during worship service but cannot be brought into the building before then.

If the priest or pastor knows you have a gun, you might not be allowed entry.
It is illegal to discharge a firearm in a church building or on church property during church services or within 100 feet of any church building. The penalty for this offense is up to a year in jail and a $10,000 fine.
The use of force in self-defense is justifiable when there is no other reasonable alternative. Using a firearm in self-defense is usually not considered justifiable unless you try hard not to hurt anyone else in doing so. For example, shooting at an intruder who has entered your home without permission is typically considered justifiable because there is no other way to prevent harm to yourself or your family.
