What are the people's thought on restrictions placed on Fresno county permits? I assume this has been brought up with the sheriff's dept.?

"carrying of weapon is not authorized in any Courthouse, school grounds, commercial airport facility..." those are the main ones. Not that a judge would allow carry in his/her courtroom I believe it's legal to ccw in state and local courts. And Mainly the school grounds restriction.

Why would you want to carry in any of those locations anyways? I think those restrictions make sense.

They do make sense, if you couple reasoning with the law...consider, however, that a normally law-abiding citizen could get jacked up for picking his kid up at school in the parking lot (if the restriction is indeed "school grounds"...I think it is actually "school grounds unless you are in your car picking up your kid")

Same with the airport...

I believe the airport restriction is "sterile portions of airports", which really means behind the metal detectors, which is perfectly fine with me. Typically, I would think/hope that people going to airports should leave the sidearm at home.

No, they don't make sense, why should you not be allowed to? The law is already clear on not carrying in the 'secure' or sterile parts of an airport, the restriction as written could prohibit me from carrying while I drop someone off/pick someone up at the airport. Why should I have to lock up my lawfully concealed firearm if I'm picking my kid up at school? Those restrictions do not make sense.

This is a classic case of I'm An NRA Member, But... Syndrome. I suspect it's probably accompanied by Battered Gun Owner Syndrome.

Sad. Really, really sad.

"Hey, I'm all for the 2nd Amendment but..."

If I had a penny for every time I've heard that before an attempt to rationalize a time/place restriction on carrying...

OPs original link is broken. Here is the Fresno County Sheriff CCW site:
http://www.fresnosheriff.org/communi...s-permits.html

The site says that once you have your initial interview, the SO will give you info on the list of CCW class instructors.

Good luck!

Any update on your timeline. Did you finally get your permit? I'm just wondering because I started my application about 2 weeks after you.

Awesome! Hopefully I get mine soon.

So basically, I'm just waiting for a letter correct? Then go in and pick up my permit. My live scan, ccw course, and previous requirements are all done.

How's the process work now? Do they approve as long as you meet requirements or do you still need a reason to give?

Yes they do that as well, I'm stating you need a reason for obtaining a CCW. You're a business owner, carry large amounts of money, etc.

Are these requirements true for going through both Fresno PD and the Sheriff's Office? I'll be moving to Fresno soon and would like to get my CCW and am wondering which department is more likely to issue. To be honest I really wouldn't feel comfortable with my future neighbors knowing that I carry if they don't need to.

I went through PD and it took four months from start to finish. This was at the beginning if last year though. Honestly, I think PD will issue you one as long as you expand on "self defense" and pass the background check. I'm a regular dude with no money to carry or business to run and I was issued one. I'm also extremely law abiding

That kinda sucks. I wouldn't want my neighbors knowing either. Is fresno pd and sheriff do the same visiting neighbors?

I dont like that FPD contacts your neighbors. I dont want my neighbors to even know I have guns let alone want to carry one.

Renewing through Fresno PD was fairly quick...Two weeks, and $77 total cost to them (not including requalifying with the handguns). And part of the two weeks was my delay.

No...my neighbor just got his, they only came to my door because he used me for a reference. We know everybody around us, no one else was contacted. I just turned in my app last Monday, was told that they are back up to full strength in background investigators, they're looking at around 4 months.
