Default Merced County Grand Jury

Here's what the Merced County Grand Jury has to say about the CCW attitude at the Sheriff's Department;

Members investigated a complaint over the way the Sheriff's Department issues permits to people seeking the right to carry concealed weapons. Over a nine-month period reviewed by the grand jury, the department received 81 applications. Of those, 29 were approved.

Grand jurors found "inconsistencies with regard to which applications were approved, and which were denied."

Though it found the successful applicants were typically citizens with good moral character and with good cause, some of them had experienced minor brushes with the law and several people who were denied seemed to be deserving. The grand jury recommended the Sheriff's Department review its policies for granting concealed weapons permits and take a second look at the denied applications for possible changes.

No surprise here folks. Sheriffs seem to think think they are above the law, and politicians and voters let them get away with it. Will you helpchange this before your rights are all gone?

With the state of the law being 'may issue', Sheriffs have a lot of leeway - that's not 'above the law'.

I could wish they used more issue-friendly reasoning.

Unless there is some way to amend a bill so you would support it,
the details do not matter until the Governor signs or allows the bill to become law.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
