Love our sheriff and will be voting for him again!

BY HUDSON SANGREE AND PHILLIP REESE

When Scott Jones became sheriff of Sacramento County in 2010, there were approximately 350 civilians licensed to carry concealed handguns in the county. Today there are nearly 8,000.

That means statistically, in any sizable gathering – at the grocery store, a ballgame or church – at least one person is likely to be packing legal heat.

About one out of every 135 adults in Sacramento County now has a license to carry. Jones has issued permits at an average rate of more than four per day during the last five years, according to data provided by the Sheriff’s Department.

The result is that Sacramento County had the third-highest number of concealed carry permit holders in California at the end of 2015, behind Fresno and Orange counties, a review of data from the California Department of Justice shows.

Good for the people, but in Sacramento I would certainly want to carry, it is a bit of a pit.

The good thing is that the permits are valid statewide.

And what about violent crime rate?

Gone down?



Where is all the "blood in the streets" that the libs are surely crying about.




I went to San Diego recently with the wife. I told her if it weren't for the gun laws and taxes I'd move there.

Good article.  Not many comments, but liberal heads are exploding at the idea of people carrying guns.

Well, if I ever have to move to CA, I guess Sacramento County is where I hope to go.

Depending on the jurisdiction of the place the shooting occurs (self defense), it may be the curse that dooms the privilege.

Meaning you'll be tried and convicted of murder for a clean self defense shooting (because of feelz)

The alternative is to agree to be a victim.

Wish I was up there to apply for one. I'm in San Mateo County, where they never issue a permit to anyone, ever.
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 10:45:46 AM EDT
It'll be interesting to see the crime statistics in say, a year?
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 11:25:44 AM EDT
As the state becomes more and more polarized (mostly rural vs urban), I have no doubt the California legislature will take steps to "reign in the unnecessary, foolish and dangerous shall issue policy that some CLEOs in the state practice".

They will pull the issuing authority away from the locals and put it in the hands of the DOJ. Only a matter of time.

There are lots of other places, as well. But we have enough people in California already, so don't make any special effort to move.

When I worked a shop in Placerville about half our ccw classes were filled with Sac people. The Sheriff has really done a good job easing the process.



I'm in El Dorado County, though, so it's even easier. I've got 6 guns on my permit and can change them out for free as many times as I want, just need to scheduled an appointment a week ahead of time. I love my Sheriff.

Local gun laws. You'll need to understand this stuff if you ever get a carry permit.

Local gun laws can't override state law. San Francisco tried this and failed.

Yes, because the last thing we need is more RKBA folks in CA.



Seriously though, Sacramento is about one of the last counties I would expect this from.

Meh. When it happens in LA County or San Fran, that will be real news.
