Thread: Applying for Concealed Carry Permit

  1. Post Applying for Concealed Carry Permit

    I live in California and have recently applied for a CCP. As part of the application I have to state why I would like to have a CCP. Twice now the Sargent has called me and told me to write a different reason. The reason that I want to feel safe and want the ability should it become necessary to protect my family or loved ones is not good enough. We go camping in areas where there can be cougars and bears and I might have to protect our kids or pet.
    I mentioned times are different today than just 10 years ago. We have treats of natural disasters that can leave us in situations where we have to take care of ourselves and loved ones.

    Can anyone else suggest what more I should be giving for a reason. I look forward to your replies.

  3. That's too bad. Sounds like your state is a "may issue" rather than a "shall issue". I'm guessing they need a concrete reason to grant you the permit. I'm sure they're looking for something along the lines of you having an immediate threat from others. Just guessing.

    Holy crap, what reasons have you stated that got you told to come up with another one?? But you do live in the communist republic of California so Iím not surprised. I would think stating that you want to protect yourself from all those gun laws that enable the bad people even more to do what they wanna do would be sufficient. But California pretty much takes the cake in the ďstupidĒ department for thinking all those gun laws help the people. I bet all them gang members with their full-auto rifles, uziís, 17, 18-round pistols and whatever else they have that was purchased illegally or stolen are really affected by all that.

  5. What reasons do people give in other states? I want to protect myself and my family first of all. It is my second amendment right to bear an arm, is it not?

    Here in Oklahoma, we donít have to give a reason. But I imagine the other stateís that are as goofy as yours who do, would suffice from probably the same reasons you already gave.

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ó That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ó That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it"


    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

  8. In Iowa I didn't need to give a reason. They just issued it. Easy!

    I'm not sure what to tell you.

    Hereís the rub, you live in a Socialist Applying for Concealed Carry PermitHole like me here in Neuyoykistan. Youíve got to be very careful what you say on that application. Offhand Iíd say that stating personal protection might just be a deal breaker to any sort of Libtard judge or whatever granting authority. So be careful there, very careful !
    Take the time, search around, fine others who successfully applied and copy their wording with just minor changes. Donít just look at one guys app, look at a few, follow their advice and guidance.
    The first thing you have to do is see this more as a job applicant than any sort of right. Thatís just life in in these disgusting states where honest people have few rights. Make sure to use the buzz words that others use, keep it short and to the point.
    Hereís a tip from a State Cop who used to do these backgrounds in NY. If you need character references be careful who you use. He said many references simply forget to send in the paperwork. So follow up and make sure they get it done.
    If you will have to be in some sort of interview expect some kind of ďwhat if ď scenario question. Your response should be all about backing up, avoiding a fight, running like hell ect. ANYTHING TO AVOID USING DEADLY FORCE. Or something like you happen upon Jr. breaking in and starting your car, want to do? You canít shoot him unless heís in the act of trying to run you over with it, right? Or Jr. across the parking lot waving a blade threatening you from 100í, will you wonít you? It all revolves around if they are a direct threat of death/ serious injury, PERIOD!! Just keep that sort of thing in mind for if they ask as well as for the real thing.
    Itís all a PITA by design so you have to play the game. If you believe it will help sign up for a CC course. It might help things and is always a good idea anyways.

  10. Thanks driz

  11. I don't know where in California you live, but if you live in L.A., I believe you'll have virtually zero chance of getting your license. Why? This should explain: https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/20...carry-permits/
