In the interest of maintaining my "no surprises" approach to law enforcement, I am wondering if I should pen a letter to the San Diego Sheriff (William Kolender) factually stating my intention to UOC where it is legal, and offering the make, model and serial number of the gun I will carry (which is legally registered to me) the make, model and license number of the vehicle(s) I will be driving along with photo(s), and a general description of the clothes I will be wearing and a big 8x10 glossy photo of my smiling face during those times I am exercising my 2nd amendment right.
The sheriff here contends that if one citizen knows the law, it is "deemed" that ALL citizens know the law. Therefore, if I inform the sheriff of my intent to OC legally
during the course of my daily travels, ALL sheriff's deputies will be deemed to have been made aware of this fact.
Then, when they get the call about a guy wearing a gun in a holster, and the sheriff asks for a description of the "suspect," they cannot walk into a court and claim that they had no previous knowledge of this, since a certified and notarized letter would be on file in their office.
If they want to stop me to make sure it is unloaded, and that the serial number is correct, and yadda yadda, that is fine. I would not mind seeing the Sheriff's deputies do their jobs. How then, could they claim to respond to a call on the assumption that I have evil intentions?
