Exclamation Trinity *** TIME TO APPLY!!! ***

UPDATE (2015 Feb 05):

Due to Trinity's relatively high CCW issuance rate in CGF's 2013 statewide survey of counties' CCW issuance, the posts below and the conspicuous absence of any mention of a Good Cause requirement in the sheriff's instruction .pdf (quoted below), I'm upgrading Trinity to "Time to Apply!" If anyone gets denied a CCW by the sheriff due to insufficient or lack of GC, PM me ("Paladin"), and this OP may get revised.

• Must be 21 years of age or older.
• Must posses a valid California Driver’s License.
• Must be a permanent resident of Trinity County (minimum of 6 months) prior to applying for your
• No felony or serious misdemeanor arrests and/or convictions.
• No history of mental illness, or currently under treatment/counseling for mental or emotional
• No arrest for any crime. Involvement in any situation in which, in the opinion of the Sheriff’s Office
indicates an individual is not suited for a CCW Permit.
• No affiliation with criminal groups or gangs.
• If you are currently a Plaintiff/Petitioner or a Defendant/Respondent named within and subject to a
current Temporary Restraining Order/Protection Order/Order of Hearing, you may not apply for a CCW permit until these court orders are fully expired.

Have a buddy possibly moving to Trinity County soon. What is the deal up there? Is the Sheriff basically shall-issue?

Any assistance would be appreicated.

There are only two kinds of licensing authorities.

1) Permissive 'may issue'.
2) Non-permissive 'may issue'.

"Shall issue" is a unicorn in California no matter what county you go to.

Trinity County is a permissive 'may issue' agency, that issues to ordinary people. While I havent reviewed all of their policies, I have heard nothing negative about the process.

Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim -- when he defends himself -- as a criminal. Bastiat

I have had discussions with the Trinity Sheriff and he is pro gun and pro CCW. He's a good man and I was impressed by his professionalism. Basically he said "Don't write me a novel, just tell me you want to defend yourself and we're good to go" Word is he won't be running next election so get your hat in the ring for that CCW just in case the new Sheriff isn't as cool as Sheriff Haney.
