I am writing to you today as Superintendent/Administrator for [DISTRICT]
to provide a resolution to an issue at hand. In our great state of California, the legislature has dictated that it is unlawful for a person to possess a handgun
within 1000 feet of a K-12 school unless certain conditions are met. One such condition is the possession is permitted by the superintendent or equivalent authority. Since it is nearly impossible to acquire a concealed carry weapons permit in our state, I
do not have any option to defend myself if attacked within a school zone
to be able to lawfully possess my firearm(s) within the 1000ft area of the K-12 schools in your district, [DISTRICT]
. I am an upstanding
abiding citizen and do not have any intent to do anything illegal in any of your district's school zones, nor do I have any intent to carry onto any school properties, which is only allowed by a concealed carry weapons permit. Due to the sporadic saturation of schools throughout the state of California, it is incredibly difficult to go about my business while lawfully in possession of a firearm for my personal protection without your written permission.
Sadly, our cities and state are rife with criminal activity. Many of our streets are full of active gang members and career criminals. These groups and individuals have no respect for the law, and in doing so arm themselves illegally. Again, I only ask for your permission to have the means available to protect myself from those of criminal intent who wish to deprive me of my life or property for those brief moments I may be within 1000ft of a school in your district.
Thank you, and I look forward to your positive response soon.
