Sunny (sad) story from CA

Here in the "Golden State" every county has their own regulations concerning obtaining a concealed carry permit. My county requires a psychological exam. Cost $150 cash, no checks, no debit cards, no credit cards.. Takes most of the day. And, the psychological evaluation company is in another county. Had my evaluation on Monday (they determined I am not crazy). Today, I find out that the psychological evaluation company will no longer do the exams for concealed carry because the state mandates they can only charge $150. Our sheriff has now decided we don't have to have a psych. eval. because he can't find another company to work with. I want my money back.
 

Another reason I'm glad I don't live in CA. What a bunch of hurdles You have to go through with to protect Yourself/Family.

I would count yourself pretty darn lucky. Your sheriff could have decided that he wasn't going to issue concealed carry permits because he couldn't find another company to work with.
 
Jean be careful. If they take you seriously in thinking you should get your money back they just might re-classify you.:wink:
 
In reply to you all: First, this is home. I have lived here since 1950. I'm just a little too old to start over. Besides, why should we all leave and let the liberals completely take over? We have chosen to stay and keep up the fight to take back our state. It's slow going, but it can happen. Second, As a life member of both the NRA and CRPA (California Rifle & Pistol Association) I follow the 2nd Amendment news. What's happened in CA is coming to a state near you right now. We all have to stand strong for each other. We ARE making progress in CA. It's slow, but "Rome wasn't built in a day".

Thanks to you all for your comments. This forum has a host of good people fighting the good fight. I have learned so much from you all (except those who can't seem to give constructive criticism or advice, you know who you are).
 
I always thought that ANYONE who lives in commiefornication was crazy........ (sorry, I had to, lol)

You may be right, so I take no offense at your statement. However, to paraphrase Sheldon, I'm not crazy, the sheriff had me tested.
 
Picked up my permit yesterday. My next step is to continue to work for better CCW regulations in CA. I have found my calling.

The late, great Waylon Jennings once sang, "I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane".
 
The City and County of San Francisco, where the rule makers, voters and cops do everything they can to make sure only the bad guys have guns. For example a city ordinance recently upheld by the US Supreme Court mandate that every firearm in one's home must be locked unless the homeowner is physically carrying it. Of course the Sheriff's office does not issue CCWs (total of 2 were issued all of last year), and open carry in public is against the law, so if you want to have a gun handy in your home, strap on a holster, but for God's sake remember to take it off before you step outside.

I am aware of at least 2 gun related crimes committed in the county in the past 24 hours. The first was a murder of a tourist along our waterfront last night. The shooter has been identified as a felon from out of state - ie a bad guy, who by federal law is prohibited from having guns. The second crime was the theft of a broadcast TV camera from a TV crew doing a live shot about the prior mentioned murder - pretty sure that they are not law abiding citizens either. It is pretty obvious who has the guns in this county. Ever hear the expression "Shooting fish in a barrel"? I think I know how the fish feel.
