There is an unfair game here in Kalifornistan on who gets to have a carry permit.
Most States here in America are now 'Shall Issue' which means they recognize the RIGHT to self protection and you don't have to have a reason to apply and get a carry permit.
Not the case here however. While some Counties here in California are Shall issue, some other Counties (Around San Fran and LA) are 'May Issue'.
May issue means you must have a 'good cause' and a good cause letter that is approved by the Sheriff or Law Enforcement.
Check your County before applying. Get on the forums and learn what is required.
What COUNTY do you live in Trooper..?
Here is the FORUM you should read..
