Hi all I'm going to be traveling to California next month. I'll be staying in a hotel so my question is is it legal to pocess my handgun in California? When I say process I mean to have it loaded inside my hotel room? Would this be legal with me being from our of state? The gun is a Colt Defender and the magazine's hold 7 rounds. I want to have it for self defense but not if it's going to break any laws there. I know concealed carry is out as well as having it in a car. But am wondering about having it in a hotel room. Thanks for any help.
