    I got some good one-on-one time with Sheriff candidate Jerry Lenthal. I asked what his policy will be if elected; will he authorize Shall Issue, or keep the current rights violating May Issue of past Sheriff's.

    He told me, the only policy he will retain, will be the range test to show competency, but the test will be at any range location easiest for you. "If you have an honest reason to carry, I'll sign the permit". He's pro-2ndA and a Constitutionalist.

    So I then asked his thoughts and future policy on UOC. I told him I carry UOC often (and the owner of the store we were at, confirmed me being armed there many times) and do not want the added hassle from his Dept. His response showed that he was NOT up to snuff on not just UOC, but firearm carry and transport in general. He insisted that you cannot carry ammunition within easy reach in a vehicle. I asked him to cite the PC on that, then kindly informed him there wasn't one. He was wrong about firearms in vehicles, also trying to quote PC about locked cases at all times, with ammo locked in separate containers.

    That's when I pulled out the OpenCarry pamphlet, and handed it to him, encouraging him to read it thoroughly and objectively.

    He's been a good Cop in SLO since the early 70's, and I feel will be a good Sheriff.....and he's pro-gun

    It's up to you, but you might want to email him the various DA and Sheriff letters that can be found on californiaopencarry. As long as he's respectful of our rights, he can be taught the PC's. Still, with all the attention of the UOC movement in the PRK its a little surprising he doesn't know anything about it.

    I haven't had any problems with cops....at least NOT YET. The thing that sticks in my craw is PC 626.9. It makes it very difficult if not pactically impossible to OCin my area.

    It bothers me more that he's so in the dark on the issue than the fact that he's regurgitating the FUD most of us have been misled to believe. My biggest concern is whether or not he's willing to learn and whether he's going to institute policies that reflect his Constitutionalists beliefs.
