It's not clear that even AG Harris wants to defend this. The problem is that many and maybe even most sheriffs do administer the licensing procedure constitutionally. Those sheriffs are not without quite a bit of political clout in Sacramento. Further, both the pro gun and the anti gun sheriffs do not want to cede control to the state on this issue.
