All of this information is going up on:

http://californiaccw.org

This site has 58 forums, one for each county, where people can discuss experiences, policies, elections, candidates, etc.

We will not win CCW in Sacto. We will win CCW in California county by county, sheriff by sheriff, police chief by police chief.

Soon I'll have stats broken down by county, and we'll start getting first-hand reports as they come in.

VOTE ON JUNE 6!

Ken Masse in LA.
Bill Hunt in OC.

I just updated http://CaliforniaCCW.org to show stats on the best and worst counties. Good news: There are about a dozen counties with more than 1% issuance, including a handful that have 3% issuance! Think about it: even shall-issue states have less than 3% issuance. So we have some winners.

We also have some losers, with many counties having issuance less than 0.1%. Worst offender is SF, with 10 permits for 793,600 people, giving it a record-winning rate of 0.0013% issuance.

The good news is, it's not hard to unseat a sheriff. Getting a shall-issue bill through Sacto is hopeless at this point, but getting a dozen more shall-issue counties is well within reach.

Shopkeep: Take it upon yourself to do some research! Find out who is running, call them up and ask their positions, and post the results here and on http://CaliforniaCCW.org !

Note that those figures are based on the DoJ's 2004 report, which is likely out of date. California hasn't really had CCW awareness until the past year or so. Most people in the state probably don't even realize that CCWs exist in California. We need to change that and get more people to start getting permitted.

Shasta County is the winner, with 3.2% of its residents having permits. It's beautiful, too.

Sparks had the policy that if you lived in the city, you had to make a request to the city first no matter what. Then if they rejected you, then you could submit an application to the county. Well the law says you can submit one straight away to the county even if you live in the city. Mack went ahead and followed the law. So even if you live in a municipality with its own police chief, you can now apply straight to the county and as long as you don't have a criminal history and you aren't stupid, you are pretty much going to get a permit. That is why I will most likely vote for Whimbish this go around. In all honesty, I don't care if he is a good sheriff or not. He is good for CCW and that is all that I ever get out of the Kern County Sheriff's Office.

All things must come to an end. That guy must be in his 60s. He has been sheriff for 20 years. Someone will replace him. Someone should run. How hard is it to get on the ballot for sheriff? We should not be having uncontested elections for powerful positions like this. This guy is probably rusty in his campaigning. If we got the right candidate and supported him we would have a chance.

He probably has a false sense of security, which could undo him.

In San Francisco, anyone running for elected office has no chance unless they can get the support of the Democratic machine that runs the city. A Sheriff candidate who doesn't support gun control will have no chance.

Even with Sierra county being at like 3% issuance, it has less people with CCW than almost any other in CA.

There are so few people up there that I know one guy who only lives there six months a year who told the Sheriff he wouldn't support him in the next election if he didnt fire a deputy. The deputy got fired. (Deputy has following people leaving bars like a bear after honey.)

absolutely correct. actually, everyone (who votes) thinks that henney is doing a great job. why do you think he's been sheriff for 20 yrs?

Well we are talking about per capita percentages here...

Yeah and Adams is a lame duck Sheriff. Everybody knows that. He is a jackass politician.
