    Those who believe that California will ever become a "shall issue" state, have undoubtedly never lived there.
    It's not happening over night or all at once, but it is happening one county at a time, and court cases are progressing in that direction. CalGuns has a sunshine initiative that has bagged a few notorious counties already.

    I hope you're 100% correct that it will happen.

    I lived in Santa Clara County. You remember that place? It's the county that passed legislation forbidding McDonald's from putting toys in kid's meals because they were getting fat....S.F. soon followed. That is pretty typical of the mentality that I was exposed to for over three years.

    I'd bet dollars to dog biscuits that Santa Clara County never will convert. Remember that it's basically Silicone Valley...full of really smart people with absolutely no common sense.

    It's not entirely voluntary. CalGuns has become the big guns in firearms lawyers, and they've made some pretty solid strides.

    If you remember Santa Clara county, you may also remember what Sacramento is like. They are effectively shall issue as part of a legal settlement:
    Calguns Foundation - Sacramento
    Yolo county was part of the same suit and is fighting to the end (and expected to loose) which will apply that loss to remaining counties.

    Lowjiber, I have lived here for 32 years and although I hate to admit it, you are probably right. It never ceases to amaze me how different Southern California is from the north. San Diego is a pro-military, fiscally conservative area, while the north, especially Sacramento and San Francisco keep moving more and more toward the socialist left. I think we need a North California and a South California. (of course that would stick us with LA LA Land).

    Northern CA has wanted to leave a few times, but they realize they need the southern half for the money.

    Chuck, you guys way up north will have to put the water in easy-open Perrier bottles. We wouldn't want the Silicon Valley folks to be seen drinking water from a simple faucet. Would we?
