Yeah, because, I assume, that doesn't apply to you like it wouldn't apply to me.

Remember, the policy is just a guideline. Humans have to interpret and apply it. If they brought it up, I'd say whether I'm getting paid or not is irrelevant to the risk I face and my need for a CCW.

Focus on that part about putting you at risk more than the average person ("subject to personal risk and / or criminal attack, greater than the general population"). You don't have to be the target of a Mafia hitman (an A+ GC), just someone who would be at higher than average risk (a C+ GC).

Plus, what was posted months ago may or may not be what's currently being practiced. The IT guy probably only updates their webpages every month or so, assuming Gore/subordinate even submitted a revision/update.

You, like it or not, have a weak GC. But, given the positive postings I quoted of people being issued and the lack of negative postings (at least that I've seen), if I were you, I'd give it my best shot and go for it! After all, on the one hand you may get denied and be out, IIRC, less than $100. But on the other hand you may squeak by and get a 2 yr CA CCW!

If I were you, I'd spend time going over what I do and where I go and what I have with me (valuables) for an entire month to try to work up by best possible GC and then apply.

Wish you the best!

How about all those applications that flooded the sheriff's office after Peruta, are those still active or do we need to submit a new one? My address has changed and I wonder if they just chucked them all.

I asked the same question earlier... Here was Paladin's reply.

I'm not sure what happened/happens if you submitted an application but did not get in touch with them post-Peruta to tell them what you wanted to do. Just call the Sheriff’s License Division at 858-974-2020

In other words, if you used Self Protection etc for your good cause, nothing has changed.
Guns, dogs and home alarms. Opponents are all of a sudden advocates once their personal space is violated.
