Default CCW in Orange County

Could you all advise me if this would be an appropriate "good cause" requirement for my CCW in Orange County?

1. I carry thousands of dollars of expensive camera equipment on a daily basis for my work as a videographer. It is not my primary occupation, however I have several years of documented 1099 income from it. My work leaves me no choice but to expose myself to high-crime areas where I risk being victimized for my equipment.

2. I go hiking at dawn and dusk

3. I am highly active politically (locally and nationally) and may be a target for my activism. I do not have any documented threats to support this at this time.

Any other suggestions on good cause requirements? Planning to reword this all for the actual application, so any tips on that would be great!

That's a good start. We've had people approved for less. Be advised they'll likely want proof to your claims, such as your 1099 and documentation of where you hike.

OP, Your first GC reason was enough for me to obtain mine. I am a hobby photographer that carries around $3,000+ worth of equipment on any given day.
In my case, I emphasized that I usually take my photographs at night, by myself, in secluded/high crime areas where Police response times are slow.

OCSD will want you to provide a list of equipment and Photos documenting your gear, plus any other supporting documents such as receipts for your work, and receipts for your gear(if you have them).

Good Luck!
