Lol. No one on this forum disagrees with you that self defense should be enough. But it is not currently. Please name a candidate who has come out and said that self defense is enough and Iíll look him up and see if he has a reasonable chance of winning and heíll have my vote.

Well spoken Immortal547, itís safe to assume we all agree on self defense. I donít see any candidate who can provide what AV does for CCW applicants, and Iím well aware of his comments on ARs but weíre all free to have opinions and disagree. So far, heís provided word to increase CCWs and has actually done it.

I'm a "regular" person and was issued a ccw. No donations given.
Back in early April 2021, I spent about an hr reading paladin's advice on the la County ccw form. Completed the app and provided what paladin suggested. Was issued a ccw oct 2021. Wasn't hard to get. Yes, it was a long wait, but I received it. No, it shouldn't have taken that long, but it did. Yes, it should be shall issue, but it's currently not.

This is the only sherriff in la county's history to issue ccw's to "regular" people. Why wouldn't I vote to re-elect Alex Villanueva?! Have you all not seen who's currently running against him? Why move backwards just to complain about how NO ONE will get issued a ccw?!

Glad to hear you were issued CCW. Would you share under what "Good Cause" exemption you were allowed a permit?

Never mind. In LA-CCW forum you stated "Yellow". Which is [BUSINESS/EMPLOYMENT] criteria for issue.

WHO, made the false claim that No ONE will get issued?

Sheriff Villanueva is the best sheriff we’ve ever had. I’m proud to donate time and money to support him. He is pro 2A and if you’re a gun owner in LA County you should be voting and supporting him. He’s our only chance for a ccw.

[3] ... Preaching to the choir. And again showing that you didn't actually read post #9. You just made up crap, then attributed your crap to me.






[4] ... That opinion is yours, and is unsupported by any factual data. Leftists will continue to attack liberal CCW policies, everywhere. Even though all indications show otherwise. Cries of, .... "BLOOD IN THE STREETS" .... "FOR THE CHILDREN" .... "WE MUST DO SOMETHING" .... will remain their mantras.

Going back to "YOUR LIST". I'll use the same example I often use in support of my opinion of all restrictive CCW policies, as well as the old lady in post #9. INCLUDING "V's".



How about a SINGLE MOM, who lives in a high crime area because she can't afford a HIGH RENT DISTRICT. Who works as an 'EMPLOYEE" for any of the above? "V" definitely doesn't think she is deserving of the "privilege" of being allowed to defend herself. When she leaves her job in the middle of the night to go home to her kids.

She barely affords to feed her kids. So she has nothing to offer "V" in return for an exemption. But he will gladly "exempt" her well off boss though.

I appreciate your efforts to expand CCW in this state. I don't appreciate your dishonest misrepresentations, intentionally faulty paraphrasing, deflections, obsfucations, and borderline prevarications, of what you CLAIM I SAID.
I apologize for so upsetting you. Rather than risk further distress I’ve added you to my Ignore List so I won’t see any of your posts. I encourage you to do the same with me.

Yep, I remember that one too. It kind of makes you wonder if unemployed or retired people who have to ride the bus, especially at night, might get approved?

Thats exactly what I was suggesting and no, I would not act like a 2 yo having a temper tantrum because he couldn’t get his way.

Anyone else who could win would also do the same AND would stop issuing, and maybe pull, CCWs.

Thumbs up LA Times interview

For any who missed these back in August.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/column-sh...203351255.html

Villanueva talks about CCWs 1/3rd the way down, says liberal are buying guns, implying they want CCWS too. Again, he’s embracing them, not distancing them.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CSKbEniJCxi/

About 18 min in AV talks about CCWs and brags about having issued more that all previous LA sheriffs combined. Again not hiding the issue but embracing it while running for re-election

In 2018, the incumbent Sheriff was Jim McDonnell. Incumbent sheriffs seem to have a huge advantage when running for re-election. In the June 2018 primary election, McDonnell got 47% against Villanueva with 33% and Bob Lindsey with 19%. Since McDonnell did not get more than 50%, the top two went to a runoff in November 2018, which Villanueva won by 141,596 votes, 52.9% vs. 47.1%. In that election, Bob Lindsey promised to increase CCW issuance. McDonnell had not increased CCW issuance during his term as Sheriff. I am not aware of any basis to think that a pro-CCW candidate would be able to get more votes than Lindsey got in 2018, especially since they would be running against a strong Villanueva (since he is running as the incumbent Sheriff). If anyone has a reason to think there is someone running who is pro-CCW and has a better chance against Villanueva, please share that with us all. In the absence of any evidence otherwise, I think we would need to conclude that Villanueva is the ONLY potential candidate who (i) has a chance to win AND (ii) is going to continue issuing CCWs at the current rate or better.

I took a look at who is reported to be running against Villanueva this summer (2022).

Eli Vera, Commander, LASD. Vera has said that if elected, he would make it his mission to "restore confidence in the office of the sheriff by partnering with the Board of Supervisors, collaborating with oversight, creating clear channels of communication with all whom we serve, and setting aside differences for the fulfillment of one common purpose -- serving the residents of Los Angeles County." I havenít found anything about his CCW issuance position.

Eric Strong, Lieutenant, LASD. He is running on a plank of eliminating ďgangsĒ within the LASD. He also wants to NOT build a new Menís Central Jail. He says 1/3 of the in-custody population has mental health problems and should be treated for their mental health issues instead of being incarcerated. He also wants a more restrictive use-of-force policy. He also wants to increase hiring diversity. I havenít found anything about his CCW issuance position.

Cecil Rambo, Chief, LAX Police Chief. He is also running on a plank of eliminating ďgangsĒ within LASD. His website has a video that blames all the problems with rising crime and calls Villanueva ďthe Donald Trump of LA County.Ē He supports Black Lives Matter and says ďour country faces a reckoning on criminal justice, and Alex Villanueva has been standing in the way of REAL reform.Ē I havenít found anything about his CCW issuance position.

Is one of these candidates, or some prospect out there, a better bet for giving us better CCW issuance than Villanueva? Do you see a trend with the candidates running against him?

So AV is political and a DemocratÖ..??

We had Trump for two years with McConnell as Senate Majority Leader and Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House. Please remind how many 2A advances were made during that time?

National reciprocity? Nope.

Hearing protection? Nope.

AV has actually made good on his promise to increase CCWs by 400%, to the benefit of a growing number of citizens. People are picking up their permits every week.

That is a real track record in a deep blue county, whereas the Republicans did nothing in their last two year window of opportunity.

@Paladin ok cool I thought I was the only one who would remember lol!

And @Pacrat you should roll the dice and submit an app and see what happens itís 30 bucks worst case you lose the 30 bucks. You wonít ever know if you being retired would automatically DQ you. Everyone has unique circumstances and you may qualify. I didnít think I had a chance seeing as my job doesnít directly put me at risk. (GC: I get call out for work at all hours of the night SOMETIMES).
But I think AV has done a decent job with the CCWs. Yes we all agree that self defense should be enough. But this is no chance that a chad bianco would get elected in LA county. Sure if youíre not a single issue voter and you donít like what heís doing sure how away and send your vote else where. But I think itís worth the gamble.

LARES, a question asked in all honesty. Have you actually read MY POSTS concerning Sheriff AV?

Or are you just commenting based on the CRAP that "Paladin" posted.

And then disingenuously attributed to me?
ETA ... Because there is a distinct difference between the two.

Another valid point and a reality check. I have no doubt that you remember reading a post you referred to about a "bus rider". But it didn't actually happen the particular way you remember.

Quote:
I remember someone posted about a friend or a family member on the LA County CCW forum stated she got approved because she often rode the bus and she was a petite woman. She was approved last year around august I believe I could be wrong
There was no friend or family member, or mention of gender or stature in the post.

Member "Paul E Paul" posted on 3-3-21 in post #1016 of the LA-CCW forum;

Quote:
I can not confirm, but during my livescan the guy administering the test said some of the previous people who were scanned had good cause along the lines of ďI ride the bus to work and have been followed/threatened/felt unsafeĒ
Then Paladin quoted it 3 times along with 2 other members. Still without any factual verification that it actually ever happened.

Seeing as how this is the INTERNET. As far as anything even remotely approaching verifiable credibility to the post. It is actually right up there with:

Quote:
"My wife said, that her hairdresser's cousin said, that her husband's coworker said, that she got a CCW because she rides the bus"

Iím not a tributing anything to you other than what you said about you being retired and feeling like that alone would DQ you from obtaining a CCW. Iím simply encouraging you to apply and give it a shot. You miss 100% of the shots you donít take just my opinion. But if you chose to not apply and give it shot so be it.

Pardon me. I was editing prior post. Please read it. Because it is relevant and in answer to your post. And my prior posts also. Especially #60 that Paladin claimed he was quoting, but prevaricated the claim.

As to the above quotes;

Sheriff V has set the parameters of what he will accept. My circumstances aren't included in his parameters, according to him. Fools errands are for fools. And wasting time and money helps no one.

So why would I waste my time and money, and the time of the deputies, just so I can claim that I foolishly wasted them?

I donít think being retired would DQ you sure maybe being unemployed for months on end and still not having a job might. My point is everyone has different circumstances and you might qualify but you wonít know unless you give it a shot. Unless AV has specifically said ďbeing retired will DQ you,Ē I donít buy any of this AV has set his parameters and I donít qualify. You will never know unless you try or reach out to the CCW unit and ask the question if that would truly DQ you. Like I said unless AV has specifically said being retired will DQ you. If he has said that then I havenít heard it. But sitting here saying you dont qualify isnít going to help anyone try reaching out to the CCW unit and see if that in fact is a DQ.

Sorry, but do you even realize what a self conflicting, and oxymoronical statement that is?

I have been retired since Sept of 2002. Hence, I have also been unemployed the same number of months since then. Which also means I have been unemployed for 231 MONTHS.

"V" has made perfectly clear that only YELLOW GC is acceptable to him. [business/job related] Both in his PUBLIC STATEMENTS and by the APPROVALS of CCWs. Even Paladin admitted that "V" is ONLY APPROVING YELLOW GC.

Paladin in post #9686 just yesterday on the LA CNTY CCW forum.

Well, since we’re pretty sure LA is Yellow not Light Green
Even after all the prior LA is LG claims, due to posts such as your. "paraphrased- [petite woman on a bus] false flag posts.

Are you also the type person who HOPES to go to San Francisco. Then jumps on the 405 South Bound in LA. Because the FWY Sign didn't specifically say that you can't get to SF by going South from LA?

Being retired and unemployed (losing your job or quitting) are two completely different things my man and if canít see that then smh. No one is insulting you here, for you to be coming at me with smart *** remarks. I am simply encouraging you to give it a shot but of course youíre an ďold timerĒ stuck in his ways. Youíre a perfect example of someone who canít have conversations about something without feeling the need to try and insult someone. Been respectful to you and just encouraging you to give it a shot but do you bro.

I never claimed or believed anyone was insulting me. Nor have I implied, inferred, or commented that anyone has.

Your "petite woman on bus" GC turned out to be nothing but internet rumor smoke and mirrors. Just as the OTHER supposed light green GC's were. They all had some sort of Yellow GC that qualified.

You can "smh" all you want. But being "retired" with NO BUSINESS or JOB RELATED GC. Still leaves my DARKEST GREEN IMAGINEABLE , GC. Off the VERY SHORT list of applicants that V will approve.

What you think doesn't matter. What you hope doesn't matter. What I think/hope doesn't matter. ONLY V's opinion matters. He has full legal discretion over who gets CCW. And he has made his criteria clear.

"ONLY BUSINESS and JOB RELATED RISKS" are considered for CCW.

Why is that so hard for you to understand? And why do you waste your time urging other people to waste their time/money chasing fool's errands?

Never know unless you apply and try all Iím saying. You can say youíll be denied all you want until you receive a denial letter. You are nothing but assumptions on the fact that youíll get denied.Donít worry about how I use my time. To you it may be a waste of time that I encourage people to apply but to me itís not. So it is what it is Iím done replying to you and stubborn hard headedďold timerĒ stuck in his ways. Have a great night man!

I agree with BOTH Pacrat and LARES. I think Pacrat is right that LASD is currently only issuing for a "good cause" related to employment. Students, grad-students, unemployed and retired are out-of-luck and not getting approved right now. However, I also think now would be a perfect time to apply on the bet that the Supreme Court rules between now and July 1 that "good cause" must include mere self defense: "Exercise of my right to self-defense." If you wait for the Supreme Court ruling, there will likely be a big rush of applications, but if you apply now, you will be at the front of the line (or near enough) when the decision comes out to be an early approval under the new standard. Thus, I agree with LARES that Pacrat and other retirees should apply now.

@stoogescv
Yeah my GC is semi work related. My job doesnít directly put me at risk. I donít transport expensive items I donít deal with cash or expensive items.
The only thing is I get called out for work at night SOMETIMES. So my good cause is merely the fact that I leave my house late at night to go to work at times.
I just encourage people to apply because everyone one has different circumstances that maybe theyíll be an exception.

This is in line with his policy of issuing for mostly yellow and above good cause. No one has said he was completely pro 2A. If he was “Self Defense” would be an acceptable good cause. The point is he is the most pro 2A sheriff we have had in LA County. Period. That is why I think he deserves our vote. Definitely more so than any other candidate so far.

That quote says all you need to know about the LA Sheriff. An arrogant SOB.

It's not what you want Sheriff! Go read the US Constitution.

I would want 10M armed law abiding citizens. AV is a dope.

Which coincides [not verbatim] but very closely with what I said back in Post #60.

Quote:
NOPE. refer back to post #9.

I consider myself to be "a regular 2A person". And No Way In Hell will V issue a CCW to me. Being retired disqualifies you according to his criteria.

I did not vote for him in 2018. Bob Lindsey was a much more 2A candidate.

I will likely vote for him this year. As the lesser of evils.
But I will not apply based solely on a MAYBE. When he has clearly shown that his acceptable applicant criteria excludes me. As one of the 10 million citizens he doesn't consider worthy of exercising their 2A right.

He's made LA CCW a reality for many people (including myself) since Q4'21. So if you're one of the few, the proud, LA County CCW holders, you're going to back him. As we get closer to the election, I suspect that the LA County Board of Supervisors will begin pushing their own candidate. And when that time comes, I'll be working a phone bank for Villanueva...

Since McDonnell did not get more than 50%, the top two went to a runoff in November 2018, which Villanueva won by 141,596 votes, 52.9% vs. 47.1%. In that election, Bob Lindsey promised to increase CCW issuance. McDonnell had not increased CCW issuance during his term as Sheriff. I am not aware of any basis to think that a pro-CCW candidate would be able to get more votes than Lindsey got in 2018, especially since they would be running against a strong Villanueva (since he is running as the incumbent Sheriff). If anyone has a reason to think there is someone running who is pro-CCW and has a better chance against Villanueva, please share that with us all. In the absence of any evidence otherwise, I think we would need to conclude that Villanueva is the ONLY potential candidate who (i) has a chance to win AND (ii) is going to continue issuing CCWs at the current rate or better.

I took a look at who is reported to be running against Villanueva this summer (2022).

Eli Vera, Commander, LASD. Vera has said that if elected, he would make it his mission to "restore confidence in the office of the sheriff by partnering with the Board of Supervisors, collaborating with oversight, creating clear channels of communication with all whom we serve, and setting aside differences for the fulfillment of one common purpose -- serving the residents of Los Angeles County." I havenít found anything about his CCW issuance position.

Eric Strong, Lieutenant, LASD. He is running on a plank of eliminating ďgangsĒ within the LASD. He also wants to NOT build a new Menís Central Jail. He says 1/3 of the in-custody population has mental health problems and should be treated for their mental health issues instead of being incarcerated. He also wants a more restrictive use-of-force policy. He also wants to increase hiring diversity. I havenít found anything about his CCW issuance position.

Cecil Rambo, Chief, LAX Police Chief. He is also running on a plank of eliminating ďgangsĒ within LASD. His website has a video that blames all the problems with rising crime and calls Villanueva ďthe Donald Trump of LA County.Ē He supports Black Lives Matter and says ďour country faces a reckoning on criminal justice, and Alex Villanueva has been standing in the way of REAL reform.Ē I havenít found anything about his CCW issuance position.

Is one of these candidates, or some prospect out there, a better bet for giving us better CCW issuance than Villanueva? Do you see a trend with the candidates running against him?
All woke azz garbage that won't do sh1t other than kill off deputies (physically and metaphorically) and thumb their noses at the public while they POLITICIZE wokeness even more than it already is... ... ALL GARBAGE...
