Hmm... not sure if you're serious or just being a troll.

Possession of marijuana is still a federal crime and govt employees may not posses or use marijuana even for medical reasons.

Anyway, thanks again for showing your ignorance towards another culture and immediately assuming I smoke pot.
You don't ive gotten enough **** from brass because of my name?

Ian puts on a very informative class. I contacted him the other day on adding a weapon to my permit. Very accommodating.

Forgot about that part.
I supervise inmate trustees and if necessary, discipline them. If i write them up, it can lead to loss in visitation, commissary, and their good time, work time.
Before i even thought of applying for a ccw, i asked for a meeting with the undersheriff. He pretty much gave me my reason: possible retaliation from a disciplined inmate." Of course I had to elaborate a little bit more.

Years ago my FIL ran CMC's water treatment plant at SLO. He ran inmate working parties with no abilities but to return them and report them if there was behavioral issues.

County approached him about getting his CCW.

Hey Guys. Haven't been online in quite awhile, but I thought I'd just check in to see if anybody here has recently obtained their CCW in SLO county with self defense as their good cause. I moved to SLO county a few months ago from Orange County and was wondering what the prospects of getting a CCW permit are in SLO county. By what I'm reading, doesn't look like very good odds at all.

Just got my CCW in SLO County. FYI for those in the process the LiveScan took forever. About 5-6 months. Be Patient.

You're SLO, er, I mean SOL.

If you folks (guys & dolls) in SLO want a sheriff who issues CCWs for SD = GC, you need to get them elected as sheriff.

IIRC, the next sheriff's election is 2018. If no one gets a majority in the June primary, there's a runoff election in Nov. The deadline for registering a candidate is late Jan or early Feb 2018. But by that time, the candidates have already locked up local and even state politicians and various organizations to endorse them. Thus, a pro-CCW candidate must consider themselves "in the race" at least 6 months before that, now we're talking July 2017 latest -- just six months from now. But even before that, SLO folk must find a suitable candidate (education, training, experience, aptitude and personality for being sheriff and have started making political connections as well as being pro-CCW).

Bottom line: SLO folk should be looking for candidates immediately....

I recommend Curio relic or any other FFL for good cause.

Parkinson is a good Sheriff who does issue. Maybe not for self defense yet... but I don't see him losing reelection. He has tons of support.

Hello, all. I am new to CalGuns and to the CCW process. I have read elsewhere on this site that the SLO county sheriffs dept. will contact your employer to verify employment, which of course is fine by me, and tell them why they are calling (which is not fine by me). Meaning my work will know that I am applying for a CCW. Is this true? I do not see how it is anyone's business that I am applying for a CCW. Plus there is no telling what political beliefs the lady in HR follows nor do I know if she would not go around blabbing it to everyone at my work.

If your good cause statement involves work related reasons for carrying, they will verify with your employer.

If your good cause statement has nothing to do with your employment, they won't need to call them.

Did you have your references write their own letter for you or did you have them sign a pre-written template? Would you please post a sample? Thank you.

Just have them speak to your character, trustworthiness, and safety . They wrote their own and just outlined how long they knew me and the nature of relationship.

Current Sheriff is extremely pro-CCW.

I WOULD NOT BE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER CANDIDATE!!!!

He hired extra officers to help in just issuing CCW. Started another department.

If the cities deny you of a CCW. The sheriff department will review your app and can overrule.

I suggest supporting this current sheriff!!!

What kind go Good Cause is required? Will Self Defense suffice or does the Sheriff require something like a restraining order, job requirements (Money, valuables etc.) or is something like living in a bad neighborhood sufficient?

No many regular people. I know many and meet many at the classes. When I was at the interview. 2 people came to pick up their permits and I saw a stack of permits waiting.

I was approved for carrying large sums of money and driving exotic cars. Most of the people I know got theirs because they live in unincorporated areas. Mostly self defense if your asking.

SLO county is pro-CCW period. Ask around before making statements. Ask CCW holders they know. I am speaking from experience as I have gone through the process. And I have 6 non resident CCW. Connecticut was much more difficult to get

He issued to 6 regular people I personally know in south county living in unincorporated and "seedy" areas. 1 was a husband and wife that shared one pistol. If your looking to get a CCW you should apply. It cost nothing till your preapproved

Yeah I know. I have friends living in Santa Maria and they can't get one, but just a few miles north in Nipomo they will issue.

While that sounds great, there's a big difference between "self-defense" = Good Cause (like in Sacto, Fresno, Ventura and a number of other counties) and what your sheriff has on his CCW policy statement (a separate form from the standard CA DOJ CCW application):

Quote:
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE POLICY REGARDING ISSUANCE OF LICENSE FOR CONCEALED FIREARM


POLICY STATEMENT

This order establishes the policy and sets guidelines for accepting applications to carry a concealed pistol, revolver, or other firearm, and the issuance of an authorizing license.

A Concealed Weapon License shall not be granted merely for the personal convenience of the applicant. A position or job classification in itself should not constitute good cause for the issuance or denial of a license. Each application shall be individually reviewed for cause.

ISSUANCE OF LICENSES FOR CONCEALED FIREARM(S)

In accordance with Penal Code Sections 26150 and 26155, the Sheriff of San Luis Obispo County, upon proof that the person applying is of good moral character, that good cause exists for the issuance, and that the person applying satisfies the below listed criteria and has completed a specified course of training as identified in this application, may issue to that person a license to carry a pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon the person.

CRITERIA

Applicant is a resident within the county or a city within this county, or applicant spends a substantial period of time in the applicant’s principal place of employment or business in the County of San Luis Obispo or a city within this county.

APPLICATION REQUESTS

Any person may obtain a Concealed Weapon License Application from the Permit Office Clerk.
Note: Applications will not be accepted unless complete and legible.

Each new applicant must demonstrate proof of residence by some type of recognized identification card or driver’s license, and at least one canceled item of current mail (with your name and street address). New applicants are requested to provide at least 3 signed letters of character reference from individuals other than relatives.

If the CCW license is desired for self-protection, the protection of others, or for the protection of large sums of money or valuable property, you are required to explain and provide good cause pursuant to Penal Code Section 26150 for issuance of the license. For example, has your life or property been threatened or jeopardized? Explain incidents and include dates, times, locations, and names of police agencies to which these incidents were reported.

<snip>

If you are notified to come in for an appointment, be prepared to:

1. Verbally justify your need for the license to the interviewer
(when applicable).
From: http://new.slosheriff.org/images/cms...CCW%202015.pdf (I changed some of the bolding. The bolding in in the body of the text in this one is mine as is the underlining.)

This looks like typical anti issuance policy. HOWEVER, other than the part I've bolded AND underlined, it could be that SLO is going the way of OC: requiring GC statement and some evidence to support it, but actually wants law-abiding competent folk to apply and get issued. If that's the case, I strongly urge them to remove the part that I've both bolded and underlined. Many will see that as what SLO expects a typical applicant to have for GC and not bother even trying.

I guess if some SLO folk have "decent" GC and evidence to support it, they should give it a shot.

ETA: his requirement of a denial by your city's CoP before you can apply with the county is illegal. IIRC, San Joaquin or Merced had that but dropped it after a threatened or filed lawsuit.

FWIW, in case anyone at the SLO SO reads this, I now have >200 incidents linked in my sig line of (mostly) CCWers saving lives (incl LEO lives like in AZ a month or so ago and FL back in Dec.).

Until we see a pattern of him issuing to "ordinary" folk (not C&R, not business owners/prop mngrs who regularly make large cash deposits, not Au/Ag coin dealers/jewelers, not exotic car owners, etc) he needs replacing.

I use many ways to judge a sheriff. How difficult is it to find CCW info on his website? What does that info say (and not say) re. GC? What public statements (to press, to public at "meet & greet" events), has he made re. CCWs? What do CGNers, esp longtime members with high post count, say about him and his office re. CCWs on this forum? I mix that all together and ask "could the Avg Law-abiding (only moving violations) Joe/Josephine gun owner (like me, my parents (RIP), my siblings, my adult nephews) get a CCW from him?"

From what I've seen and read, NONE of us could get a CA CCW from SLO SO. In SLO Co, BGs carry guns and LEOs can carry guns, but squeaky clean GGs cannot. Is that just? Does that sound like a wise public policy? Does that even make sense??? That's not being "extremely pro-CCW" and yes, until then, SLO folk should look for a better candidate. See, half the reason why I want CA to go SI is so that other CA CCWers will come across BGs before they cross my path. I lead a nice, quiet, peaceful and boring life and, like the sheriff said in the beginning of First Blood, it's my job to keep it that way. I hope my guns "Rust in Peace" ... even when they're SS

Over the past 30 years, since the beginning of the Shall Issue movement, not one state has gone from May Issue to No Issue. Not one state has gone from Shall Issue to May/No Issue. Not one state has gone from ConCarry ("Unrestricted") to Shall/May/No Issue. Law-abiding gun owners are NOT the problem! No "streets running red with blood" from "high noon shootouts" over fender-benders or parking spaces or any of the other nonsense the antis push. In CA, the same trend from more restrictive to less restrictive issuance has also occurred. The ONLY exception I know of in the 12+ years I've been involved, was OC which went restrictive after Carona was sent to the slammer and even there, Hutchens has since liberalized issuance, so much so that after the 3-judge panel win in Peruta, she issued for SD = GC! But after the Peruta en banc loss, she's since walked that back and now requires more for a GC statement and requires supporting evidence (e.g., receipts showing you do go to the range, are member of a shooting club, entered a match, whatever). But the avg law-abiding gun owner can get a CCW in OC if they try. (FWIW so far 17 states have introduced ConCarry ("constitutional carry") bills and I expect a handful to switch this year. I expect the NH governor to sign their passed bill into law later this month. You can follow it at: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1287085)

Of course, if the sheriff has liberalized issuance, he should change what his policy says and make some statement to the local press. The OC sheriff did that. Fresno and Sacto did that and have said CCWers have been no problem and aren't the problem. After the massacre, the San Berdo sheriff said during a national/international TV press conference people should get CCWs and EDC! The SLO sheriff should do something now, that is clear & unambiguous, if he doesn't want CGNers to look for other candidates. Until then, CGNers in SLO need to look for a new sheriff....

Plus, if what you say is true and he's liberalized issuance, I'll expect to see long time CGNers post that they're getting issued CCWs for "reasonable" GC.

FWIW I'd LOVE to see SLO turn "light green" or even better, "dark green" on the map below!

Last, if he really is liberalizing issuance, he should check out how Sacto, Monterey, Stanislaus and several other SOs are putting some/most of the application process online to streamline things and to save money. Of course, there will be hiccups with any system change, but it seems to really save office manhours, esp in re. with renewals being handled all online.

So you are telling me if I am just an average Joe who lives in a city, not rural, who applies, can pass a background/moral check and just lists "Self Defense" as my GC statement, I would likely get a CCW from the SLO Sheriff?

Also, what "classes' are you referring to? CCW classes? Are you an instructor or an employee at a business that teaches SLO approved CCW courses? I'm not trying to pry here, I'm trying to frame your comments and observations alongside other SLO folks comments and observations.

Nipomo does not have its own police or sheriff so how does that work? Is it because Nipomo is unincorporated that makes it easier to get a CCW?

Yes, that's exactly it. If you live outside of an incorporated city and far enough away from a sheriff substation that they feel results in an extended response time you can get a permit. You live in a city and the sheriff will not issue barring other factors.

Anyone with a contact in Sheriff Parkinson's CCW dept should contact them and suggest they look into putting their CCW process online. It saves BOTH the department and applicants (new and renewal) time, money and effort.

Pass this article along to them: http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/cri...121987214.html

I'm sure there are others, but so far I know San Bernardino, Sac, Fresno, Stanislaus, Monterey, Placer, Solano and Yolo have all put their CCW process online and San Benito expects to put their application process online sometime this month.

Renewals are done entirely online (no appointment necessary) saving office staff valuable time.

Example: You carry a weapon as a condition of employment but employer's lawyers will not release a letter of CCW support to IA due to liability. Therefore, IA put's restriction of may not carry concealed while performing duties for employer. Even though you may carry stuff WAY higher end on the clock.
