UPDATE (2017 June 07): It appears that Sheriff Parkinson has liberalized issuance. How much has yet to be determined. If you are a law-abiding gun owner who desires a CCW you should now seriously consider applying. See my posts #383 & 386. — “Paladin”

I'm a SLO county resident, Grover Beach in particular. What is it that you need me to do?

As someone who has applied previously and denied for cause despite holding CCW in several other states, I will be very interested to see what good cause statements have been accepted.

I did a PRAR request myself a couple years back after the denial trying to learn what statements had been accepted. Despite the request specifically limiting to copies of the cause statements, they still wanted about two grand in copy costs to cough them up... just couldn't go any further after that, which was likely the point.

Can we develop a standardized CCW policy, that fulfills the requirements of the law, that we can provide to the newly elected sheriffs?

This would provide cover for a sheriff when challenged on his CCW policy; "we are using a standard CCW policy that has been accepted around the state and follows CA state law".

Perhaps those new sheriffs would be open to assistance going through GC statements to 'help' them stay out of legal trouble. Shoot, why not have CGN members seek employment with a department to administer the CCW program?

Time to be proactive in developing policy and procedure.

Hello everybody! Getting ready to apply in SLO. I have a question though.. reading through the information on Gray's link above, I saw that the ONLY "good cause" was if being threatened.. i.e. a stalker, death threats, etc. Is this the current guideline?

AJAX22 11-08-2010 12:57 PM

My understanding is that SLO allows pretty much anything that is well written and articulate as good cause.

I had a friend with a CCW in slo, IIRC he just had a nice letter that said that he would like to have the means to defend his life and the lives of his family should the need arise (or something to that effect).

wildhawker 11-08-2010 1:50 PM

Anecdotal evidence suggests SLO swung into dark red territory.

furyous68 11-08-2010 4:39 PM

sorry... forgive me, but what does that mean?

wildhawker 11-08-2010 6:42 PM

It means that SLO is (at least currently) unfriendly to 2A/CCW.

furyous68 11-09-2010 9:44 AM

gotcha! I was taking "red" territory as Republican or gun friendly... which confused me! lol

So I am thinking about applying for a SLO county CCW, but before I waste the time and money.... Does anybody have any recent experiences with the new sherriff (Parkinson) that would be helpful?

dantodd 11-20-2010 7:39 PM

Volunteer in the "call for volunteers" thread in the main 2A forum. When the time is right you will get an email on how to proceed. There will also likely be a thread here when we request activity in a particular county.

i'm in the same boat... no experience with the sheriff but can't be any worse than the last one... I hope. I wasn't thinking about CCW during the election, but wish i'd at least looked into it. I voted against the other guy because of the persistent rumours of fraud/corruption. And that Parkinson was at least endorsed by the local bible store owner.

Any thoughts/news on UOC here in SLO county? i have a little girl to protect, and parks full of dog owners who ignore the leash laws.

When the time comes to either take action in your county, or when your county is determined to be "shall issue" and it is safe to apply with "self defense" as your good cause, you will be notified in this thread or via email.

Also, please consider donating to help pay for all the PRA's and lawyers that it is taking to do this work. The cost of sponsoring your county is about the same as the cost of the mandatory background check!

Agreed, SLO is a county we want to apply some diplomacy and forward airstrikes prior to moving in the ground forces.

Pred@tor 11-26-2010 8:16 PM

I am in the process for my CCW out here in Missouri I should get it in two weeks. How can I apply for one out of state for when I visit my brother who happens to live in SLO county? I lived there for 18 years and I know he packs heat but hes a cop.

A few years ago, i read that this had come to public attention and the government offices that were pulling this were being compelled to charge more reasonable rates for the copies people request.

I'm not sure where this stands now, but i'd be willing to help both look into it (internet searches and phone calls) and to follow up if i can (i'm a few hundred feet from grover beach's city offices, and down the street from south county court offices.

i'm just now learning about Calguns work on CCW and what is being done. I'd also like to learn what efforts are being done for OC in my area if anyone would like to contact me.

Unfortunately, you cannot receive a non-resident license unless you have a compelling business interest in SLO (and you can convince the sheriff). This will be fixed timely but not immediately.

You gotta be kidding me... Parkinson is going to be worse unless he's forced; Cortez would have freely issued, but despite his campaign promises I have severe doubts about our new sheriff. When I applied the first time for CCW in 2005 I had to go see the city first before the county. I walk in and ask for an app... they have me wait for the captain (Parkinson), who comes out and tells me he doesn't issue unless you have a documented threat against you, and doesn't like to issue anyway due to the liability involved. Took almost a half hour for me to get the app out of him so I could do it, get my written denial, and move on to the sheriff.

That is a totally bogus argument. Does the State of California accept liability when they issue you a drivers license? Parkinson will not willingly give out CCW's. He is cut from the same cloth as the previous Sheriff. Parkinson has a colorful "history" too.

choprzrul 11-30-2010 8:46 AM

I am eagerly awaiting CGF's release of SLO's GC statements. I am curious as to whether or not the county has released them yet. Makes me wonder how many apps statewide are getting shredded rather than released???

Is there a way I can be automatically updated about the situation out there like email news letters or anything or shall I just keep checking this thread? Thanks for the reply by the way.

What when where and who?

So I signed up for the calguns foundation CCW list deal, but I have not received anymore information about it. Is there somebody that I can talk to about it or at least knows what exactly is going on. I have some patience, but if we're talking a year or two from now, that's going to be tough one to hurry up and wait for.

dantodd 12-05-2010 11:15 AM

Feel free to pm wildhawker. I don't think there is much to tell right now. He has already used the volunteer list in two counties. I don't know which will be next.

wildhawker 12-05-2010 12:56 PM

San Luis Residents, please hang tight. We've not forgotten about you.

choprzrul 01-04-2011 10:33 AM

Can I do my own FOIA request to SLOSD for CCW apps/GC statements? Don't they have to provide the documents by law? Could we FOIA them so much that it would be easier to just issue us a CCW?

If I do my own FOIA and get the docs, would it be helpful if I started redacting and forwarding my work to The Right People? It is really killing me to to have to stop at my office and home doors to unload and lock up the pistol. What can I do to help???

Resistance and foot dragging. Why are they so afraid?

SikDMAX 01-04-2011 5:54 PM

Who, exactly.. CGF?

They are working on the areas that affect the most amount of people first, I would say.

Parkinson just got sworn in yesterday - lets see where things are at in 60 days.

Yesterday I called SLOSD and requested an application for CCW. I am willing to wait until the time is right to apply, but please keep me informed. Thanks

Pred@tor 01-16-2011 4:14 PM

Will there be more information on possible non-resident permits? As I am a military man and my home of record is there...

OffGrid 02-03-2011 12:02 PM

I backed off of turning in my application and getting my classes started because of what I have been hearing.

Both on line and via word of mouth I have been hearing that it is even more difficult to get approved lately. Is it a case of old sheriff goin out and new sheriff coming in and neither has time to look at the applications or are we seeing more rejections?

I don't want to go on hearsay and from a freind of a freind info. so im lookin for actual info if anyone has some.

I don't mind being a test subject but I really done want to waste the money if it will be so long a time before it does any good.
