So, no obvious policy change.
Subjective decisionmaking, not based upon an objective standard for Good Cause? If someone really wants a CoCoCo CCW, best to use the old "Billy Jack" approach of PRAs (backed by CBS v. Block), Salute v. Pitchess and Guillory v. Gates/County of Orange looking for possible 14th A Equal Protection violations (e.g., a "relaxed" standard for CCWers who are "Posse" members, "Friends of the Sheriff", donors to the sheriff's political campaign, etc).

Well, at least with "CCW" being out there front and center on their homepage, more folks who do qualify under the sheriff's restrictive policy will actually apply and get issued. More CCWers is always a "good thing." They may come across a BG before that BG crosses our paths.
Never mistake being delusional for being optimistic.
