The City of El Monte is aware of the recent Supreme Court decision New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen in regard to the issuance of concealed carry permits for firearms. We are currently reviewing draft policy and will soon be implementing a new policy and process. Additionally, the California Attorney General’s Office has indicated that they will be offering further guidance in the coming weeks. We ask for your patience as our previous practice of deferring our weapons permit process to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is no longer an option.
For inquiries related to a concealed carry weapon permit (new or renewal), contact the CCW unit at CCWapplications@empd.org.
