    San Diego Unified School District

    Terry B. Grier, Ed.D.


    4100 Normal Street

    San Diego, CA 92103-2682

    Dear Dr. Grier,

    This letter is a formal request for your written approval on a matter of great concern.

    I am currently in a position where I feel compelled to request your authority to exercise my right to carry a firearm within certain geographical areas under your control.

    The California Penal Code grants you the authority to provide permission to carry firearms in the areas surrounding K-12 schools under the California Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1995.

    Although I believe that in certain situations your permission may not be needed, I would like to request and receive your written permission to prevent any incidents that may be caused by ambiguities in the law or situations where I may be exercising my rights while not knowing that I am near a k-12 school under your jurisdiction.

    I am appending to this request Section 626.9 of the California Penal Code which prompts this request, and have underlined certain areas of concern and interest.

    In order for you to make an informed decision, I offer the following facts regarding my background and experience.

    I currently possess the following permits, certifications and background:

    Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers – Connecticut

    Author of approved firearms/pistol course – Connecticut Department of Public Safety

    Recognized & certified Pistol and Revolver Instructor – Connecticut

    Permit to Carry Concealed Pistols and Revolvers – Utah

    Permit to Carry Concealed Pistols and Revolvers pending – Florida

    Certified Pistol Instructor – National Rifle Association

    Certified Handgun Safety Instructor – California Department of Justice

    Graduate Connecticut Municipal Police Training Academy - 1970

    Former member of law enforcement – Wethersfield Connecticut P.D.

    Former Firearms Instructor U.S. Naval Academy – 1969

    Part time legal investigator and active member of the New Media

    Should you require any references regarding my character or background, I will be happy to supply you with a list of names and contact information for each.

    Assistant Sheriff Cooke

    Law Enforcement Service Bureau

    P.O. Box 939062

    San Diego, CA 92193-9062

    RE: Edward Peruta

    Application No.: GP-25466

    Dear Assistant Sheriff Cooke,

    Please be advised that I am the attorney of record for Edward Peruta with regard to his CCW application process and other CCW related matters. I have previously spoken with Sanford Toyon regarding this matter.

    At this point and time Mr. Edward Peruta is requesting your review of the decision to deny his application to carry a concealed weapon and we would like the opportunity to meet with you in person during this review process. Specifically, we do not know why Mr. Peruta's application
    was denied as we believe he has shown good cause in his one page declaration, does not have any disqualifying events in his background, has a CCW from other states, and should meet the residency requirements.

    In addition, none of the personal references, including: Police Chief T. William Knapp, Retired Executive Director of Post for the State of Connecticut, Police Chief James Cetran, Wethersfield, Connecticut, Police Chief Michael Custer Rocky Hill, Connecticut, Police Chief Anthony Salvatore Cromwell, Connecticut and currently the President of the New England Association of Chiefs of Police, in addition to local references that were provided in the application process, as requested by the San Diego County Sheriffs Department were never contacted and are willing to provide declarations to this effect.

    Please contact my office to schedule a date and time to meet with you at your office.


    Paul H. Neuharth Jr.

    Cc: Sanford Toyon
