View Full Version : The Orange County CCW Permit Challenge!

04-12-2006, 8:09 AM
Okay you CGN people in OC. It looks like you've got at least one great contender in your sheriff's race, Bill Hunt ( http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=31645&page=3 ). If you are up for a challenge, go thru the thread at: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=31670 , adopt it and adapt it for the OC. As I just posted there, both your groups could coordinate hitting rich targets that lie near the border you share. Also, you both should know the basic contact info for both candidates so that you are always ready to refer people to the other.

Remember, in Sacto, you've got to get pro-CCW people to run for office, win their primary, get elected, draft legislation, move it thru subcommittees, committees, etc., build a coalition to vote for it and pass it in one chamber and then do the same thing in the other chamber, and then get the governor to sign it. Then get ready for court challenges! With counties, all you have to do is get a pro-CCW sheriff and all those residents are good to go (apply) -- just one person to elect, no change of law needed. Plus doing this will get a lot more people interested in changing our state's law to Shall Issue and will get a lot of people in neighboring counties to say to their Chiefs/Sheriffs: "Hey, if people in OC/LAC can get permits, why can't we?!!!" Think "domino theory."

If we could win in LA (10 million) and OC (3 million) we will have liberated over 1/3 of all Californians (36 million total pop). And remember, a few of those other 23 million already live in Shall Issue counties so that just makes our impact even bigger. In other words, this is all worth it! Take up the challenge. We have less than 8 weeks. Let's do it!

(I posted this at the end of the thread re OC sheriff's race but thought it is worthy of its own thread in case Ramon wants to make it a sticky (for the next 8 weeks until the primary) so that those who want to join the fight can share info/ideas/questions/comments.)
