Stanislaus gun permits rise sharply after 2010 pledge by sheriff

When Ollie Usher heard Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson publicly pledge to be more generous with gun permits two years ago, he wasn't sure whether the election-season promise was a campaign stunt or a significant policy shift.

Scores in the pro-gun audience that night probably wondered the same thing. More than a thousand people, including Usher, apparently decided to try their luck.

And nearly all won the right to legally carry concealed firearms, turning Stanislaus County into the region's latest gun-friendly place to be.


Further down in the article...
"Calguns Foundation, which tracks trends in California, says Stanislaus County's 81 percent increase in concealed-carry permits last year dwarfs rates elsewhere in the San Joaquin Valley. Christianson's change of heart put Stanislaus fourth among the state's 58 counties for the biggest percentage rise in civilian permits, trailing only Sacramento, Contra Costa and Ventura counties."

Trailing Contra Costa?

Are people actually getting LTC here or is the issued number so low that any number of new LTC shows as a signficant percantage?

I was one of those who thought maybe the sheriff was going to pull a switcheroo after the election but the man has been good for his word. When the next election comes along I'll be making a nice donation to his campaign.

Uh oh... I should have applied last week when I got the notion. Now I'll probably have to wait even longer because this article will likely spur on a multitude of applications.

It is good news though.

What kind of handgun was that in the picture? Looks like soviet block, like a mak.

I wish CCW was a option in SJ county.

Yeah I thought about doing that but I have my own political battle to win at home before I can do it. I've successfully jumped the ownership hurdle and now I am working on the carry permit. This article actually was a good talking point for us and she is beginning to understand my side of things a little more. She's slowly coming around... won't be too much longer. :cool:

Less than two years ago I was right in the same boat, I know how you feel. I'll drink a double shot of Wild Turkey to the day EVERY Californite is given back the right to protection from the criminal element no matter where he/she is. Until then............:mad:
