Ahern may be getting b---- slapped soon.... SCOTUS wants to take a close look at Rogers before deciding whether to hear it next year.

Default Alameda County: Is Homelessness A Good Cause?

I just read that the homeless population has spiked 40% in Alameda county. Here in Fremont there have been numerous attacks on people in malls. One lady was attacked and hit on the head with a pipe so they could steal her purse. Another person was held at gunpoint at an ATM. Home invasion robberies and home breakins. There's no doubt that crime is on the uptick.

Any chance I can use the homeless arguement for GC and have a shot (don't laugh) at getting a CCW in Alameda county?

Finally if I were to apply and my CCW application was denied because they didn't agree with my reason, could the denial harm me in any way?

Not currently. Did you read over Sheriff Ahern's Good Cause requirement? https://www.alamedacountysheriff.org/admin_ia_ccw.php

A denial for insufficient GC won't harm you in the future. If/when you reapply later, they'll just compare your future GC against their future GC standard.

FWIW SCOTUS will probably take at least one 2nd A case next fall. Some here (me included) think the odds are good they'll make a decision that will liberalize CCW issuance in CA before 2020 July 01.

She said there are a lot more applications.

Took a little over 3 months from start to finish.
Can you share with us an idea of what your GC was like?

Hope everyone reading this is safe and please get those applications in.
Can you give us a rough idea of what their GC was like (if you know it)?

So it is possible to get your CCW even in this County. Takes 15 months but it does happen.
If you know, can you share with us a rough idea of what their GC was like?

Good morning everyone. Thank you to Paladin for reaching out to me directly - have not been checking this thread in some time. I actually have left California and moved to Texas over the last year.

The Alameda County SO takes the time to review your good cause during the initial application. Many people who have their CCW license work as County employees or work with the Sheriff. A lot of other folks are business owners who deal in large amounts of CASH - landlords, vending machine owners, etc.

Thanks for the reply. Congrats on moving to Free America! I heard TX will likely be turning "blue" (Dem) in a few years.

Re. CCWs: How does working as county employee help them? I mean, if I'm an IT guy working as a consultant for a private business vs working for the county or sheriff, I don't see how the latter gives me greater GC.

Or when you say "county employees" are you talking about judges, DAs and prosecutors/public defenders? If so, they apply for different CCWs, 3-year "Judicial" CCWs.

When you say "work with the Sheriff," are you talking about reserve officers? If so, they apply for different CCWs, 4-year "Reserve" CCWs.

The only ones we care about are for "normal" people who apply for 2-year standard CCWs. Besides landlords and vending machine owners, do you know what Good Causes are sufficient for getting issued 2-year CCWs?

As for landlords and vending machine owners, carrying what amount of cash qualifies: $1,000? $5,000? $10,000? more???

Thank you. It might happen one day, then it might not happen.

I met a MD who helped the sheriff as a medical prosecution witness. He had his CCW. Met another guy as a PI. Met a guy who was a mortician.

There is no real prescription for a guaranteed good cause in Alameda County. BUT cash amounts appear to be a good one.

I would say over $1000. I had to provide deposit receipts

Wait a minute. What? How does being a mortician put him at higher risk than average? Is he afraid corpses will turn into zombies and attack him? Even if that happens on the job, he can carry inside the mortuary. Or is he afraid they'll come out of the ground out at a cemetery?

A reminder for folks: when Suture1 says >$1,000 cash he means cash, not >$1,000 worth of work equipment, which may only be worth $300 - 400 when sold as stolen. So, if you want to use the value of something else, think of how much it would go for stolen, not how much you paid for it new, or will have to pay to replace it. Then you can use that multiplier to use to see if you've got GC.
