Default Monterey County CCW/Elections

mods, sorry if this is in the incorect forum, please advise or move appropriately, thank you

I just heard a portion of an interview this morning for Sheriff Candidates for Monterey County sheriff;
todays interview was with;
Steve Bernal current Deputy of Monterey County
the part I heard was in regards to CCW.
I'm going from memory now, so this is not quoted
he was asked about how he views the ccw policy, and pretty much said, he wouldnt change anything.
the interview was on 1460 so, it might be available there, i havent checked yet.

his website is electbernal.com
NO, I am not promoting it, just giving what information I know so far

While I'm not familiar with the Monterey County situation, I can offer a general comment: Sheriff's elections are often low profile and in a case where there are two serious candidates and a reasonably close race, a dozen pro-2A folks getting seriously involved to support a pro-CCW candidate could make the difference between winning and losing. Doesn't help where one candidate is outspending the other 10:1 or where one has lopsided political backing, but in those closer races where there is a clear choice....

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to learn about the candidate, and for passing the info on.

So far I only know of 1 other candidate (aside from the sitting sheriff)
Fred Garcia, ran last time, but lost in the primaries to current Sheriff Miller
I dont currently see anything on him for the current election cycle

There is an article on concealed carry in the current Monterey County Weekly. To summarize, it is a very difficult, lengthy and expensive process here.

anyone have any opinion on any of the candidates so far

would be nice if someone could post the CCW question on his facebook page, one person did post it

Where do you stand on gun control, and CCW's?

this was his response

Thanks for the visiting the page and also for the question. Since this is the most popular question I get, I decided to post my detailed stance on CCW's on my web page in the next day or two. Keep checking back here as I will post a notice here when I get it posterd on the web page.
Steve

still nothing on his website though, seems a Number 1 question, should get a good response and be a serious consideration in elections.

oh, my question was a bit more entailed, but it got deleted, and I was unfriendly
no, i do not attribute that to the question, I attribute that to my fake account name.

thanks for the link...

i've been thinking of applying as well.

Quote:
From 2012 to 2013, 23 of the 152 people who applied were rejected
The quote above from that link few posts up, kind of discourages me to apply, considering the ratio that was listed here was much better: http://www.montereyherald.com/local/...-gets-tighter#

I dont want my neighbors to know that I have weapons, especially if they are interviewed and I fail to obtain a CCW
