I live in California and the chance of me getting a permit to carry a weapon are slim to never in my life happening, due to the fact that it is the discretion of the local Sheriff Department and I don't contribute any money to him for his campaign.
California recently again made my life harder by changing the laws on Conceal Carry Weapon (CCW) permits. Many years ago I went and applied for a CCW permit at our local Sheriff''s department and was denied because I did not have "Good Cause" and when I asked what "Good Cause" was, I was met with the look of a deer in the head lights.
Being a NRA member and reading the monthly magazine about "Armed Citizens", I am pleased with knowing other average citizens get to exercise their rights to protect themselves, plus its always fun to read about a would be criminal getting shot dead...I prefer them dead so we don't have to waste space in our jails and money paying for a trial and their lawyers.
So until California wakes up and allows its citizens to exercise their rights to "Open Carry" or "Conceal Carry" I will have to find other means to protect myself in case one day it happens, because we know the our Police cannot be everyplace.
