I believe I am now at liberty to reveal that I offered to settle the current Federal case if the San Diego Sheriff's Department was prepared toissue me a CCW and reimbursed for my current out of pocket legal fees
When asked for details of the conference, I was informed by my attorney that the County/Sheriff's Department declined to settle on my terms under the belief that to issue me a CCW would open the door to gang bangers
to do likewise.
I now believe that San Diego County advocatesthrowingbabies out with with the bath water
in their policies and practices that deny CCWs tohonest law abidingCalifornia residents.
Based on what I have been told, it appears thatthe San Diego Sheriff's Department believes and will claim
that denying honest law abiding residents CCWs serves a public purpose and acomplishes their goal of keeping other individuals involved who may be involved incriminal activities from obtaining CCWs.
This could be the reason that otherClaifornia residents in the countiesnot near the Mexican boarder orin communities that do nothavelarge populations of gang bangers
experienceless hassles or denials in obtainingaCalifornia CCW.
I'm still trying to digest what I have been told, but regardless of where this case goes, it's obvious that there are serious problems in the CCW process regardless of where you live in California.
Maybe I made a mistake in choosing to reside in San Diego.
