Re:​FINAL WARNING TO COMPLY WITH THE SUPREME COURT’S BRUEN RULING; PRE-LITIGATION DEMAND

Dear Chief Mata:

Our firm represents the California Rifle & Pistol Association (CRPA), which was founded in 1875 and has been working to uphold the right of Californians to keep and bear arms for nearly 150 years. We write to you today because numerous individuals have contacted CRPA to report that various police and sheriffs’ departments, including yours, have been delaying conceal carry weapon permit issuance. Such obstruction constitutes open defiance of the Supreme Court’s recent landmark ruling in N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. The issues we have heard CRPA members repeatedly raise include unclear processes on how to apply for permits, endless wait times, subjective requirements, application procedures that violate applicants’ privacy, and in some cases, the refusal to even accept applications for processing.

This may not be the first time we have contacted you, as prior letters that were sent to most departments laid out a summary of the Supreme Court’s ruling, and also corrected several misstatements of the law issued in a legal alert by Attorney General Bonta. In addition, since our last letter the California Legislature tried and failed to pass Senate Bill 918, which would have added a number of unconstitutional limitations on the right to bear arms. To the extent that your department was stalling until that bill passed, it is past time to cease such bad faith delays and begin issuing permits in a timely fashion.

Attached to this letter you will find guidance on why certain policies and practices in handling CCW permit applications are unconstitutional. To the extent your department is engaging in some or all of these, it must cease doing so immediately. As a public official that took the oath to uphold the Constitution, it is your solemn vow to follow the rule of law, uphold the foundations of the Constitution as ordered by the Supreme Court, and issue concealed carry licenses to those meeting the non-subjective requirements in California law.

In our earlier letters we stated that CRPA would be patient as departments transitioned to shall-issue permitting systems. So long as your department was acting in good faith to quickly honor the Bruen ruling, we would not institute legal action. We have received enough complaints from CRPA members to know that you have not significantly moved to comply with Bruen in the nearly three months since the Court’s ruling. This is your final warning to quickly implement a permitting process in accordance with both California law as well as the Supreme Court’s ruling.
CRPA requests that you promptly respond in the next week with a detailed and reasonable plan of how you intend to bring your department into compliance within the next 45 days. As long as this plan is in line with the Bruen decision and the Constitution generally, we will support your department and offer assistance in working with you to bring about the appropriate change. If you continue to delay the issuance of concealed carry permits in violation of the law as outlined in the attached summary, CRPA is giving notice that legal action will be taken against these violations.

Should you have any questions regarding this letter or the attached Summary of Constitutionality of California’s Gun Laws and Practices Post-Bruen, please feel free to reach out to our office.



Sincerely,
Michel & Associates, P.C.

Kudos to the Sheriffs that are already issuing permits. They have been important proponents of 2A rights and need to be stridently supported at re-election time and budget times.

I suspect some Sheriffs that were on the fence regarding permits may change their policies as a result of the SCOTUS action. We need to welcome them to the 2A side of the aisle.

There will probably be some Sheriffs that refuse to comply and will endure long and lengthy legal battles to delay compliance. They can do this because they will be fighting CRPA and others with tax dollars and its those tax dollars the Dem Libs believe come from a bottomless pool that includes most of us CRPA members, and any damages are also paid by tax dollars too. Those on the side of the 2A must continue to support CRPA, even if your Sheriff is compliant because a compliant Sheriff could be gone after a future election only to be replaced by an anti-2A individual and the battle starts over again.

If ever there was a time to donate to the CRPA, it is now. The Reckoning is upon us!

I contacted CRPA and they are sending letters to my local cities

If your city won't issue, consider contacting CRPA and Michelle Associates

they should get rid of the other stupid requirements too, that should take care of the whole "backlog" problem. if you pass a background check, that should be enough to pick up your permit from their office. the other stuff is just taxation of your time and money

Exactly! What should be such a simple process is complicated by stubborn sheriffs

Above quote is an excerpt of the Michel & Assoc. letter.

And is going to be a tough pill to swallow for most CoPs in Ca. They get, and hold, their jobs as "POLITICAL APPOINTMENTS". BY COMPLYING with the political agendas of their masters. Whom they serve at the pleasure of.

These same political butt puppets historically hold their wallets, in higher esteem than their silly oaths. They say the oath, because it is a requirement to get the job. After they get the job, the oath has served its purpose, as far as these integrity challenged tax suckers are concerned.

When they get to pay the legal cost of a suit, it might help city managers / city council follow a law

Just did this, I confirmed that they sent a letter to Alameda County Sheriff's office already.
