Default Latest on Orange County

I just successfully renewed my Orange County, CA CCW application and I thought I would cut through some of the clutter and provide some hard information.

1. They recommend that you apply for renewal **5 months** prior to expiration. The "don't apply before 90 days or they'll ignore it" is just plain wrong. They have a heavy processing load and they really do try to get you renewed before your expiration.

2. You do need a substantial "good cause" statement. Doesn't have to say you are James Bond, but you need to say something. Example: as a lawyer I sometimes have to interview witnesses in not-so-safe neighborhoods. I also sometimes have to carry large amounts of cash to make deposits. I also deal with dangerous people both in and out of the office. This was enough.

3. They check a lot of stuff. If you got any kind of ticket from a cop, for example, don't forget to put it down on the application. They check.

4. The OC staff are very courteous and professional. We are very lucky that here in Orange County we have an enlightened Sheriff who recognizes the need for CCW as a means to individual protection/self-defense.

I just picked up my Orange County CCW, and I was told to start the renewal process 5 to 6 months prior to the expiration date. The printed-out renewal papers that I received actually had the "3 months" crossed out and she wrote "5-6 months" by hand.

I was also told that the automatic renewal email that you will receive will still be sent out, but that it would continue to be sent out 3 months prior to the expiration of your CCW.

You updated your "good cause" from what to what?
If I used "SD" last time, that will be rejected this time?

Yes. "Self Defense" is what we were all told to put two years ago and that is what I put the first time back then. It is not enough now. This time I did a one page "good cause" statement as I described in the post above.

How long is the live scan running these days? I'm at about 90 days and nothing yet.

And that is why OC is Light Green not Dark Green on the CCW map.

Thanks for the info, at least we know they are issuing for reasonable GC, just not SD.

I thought this was the age of instant information. Can somebody please tell the DOJ?
