San Francisco, CA (July 15, 2022) – In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and California Gun Rights Foundation (CGF) have sent letters to San Francisco Police Chief William “Bill” Scott and Sheriff Paul Miyamoto telling them to “take immediate action to conform [their] policies and practices to comply with constitutional requirements.” The letters can be viewed at FPCLegal.org.
“At bottom, if you are accepting and processing license applications, you must treat such matters with the timeliness and care required of any constitutionally enshrined fundamental right,” reads the letters. “Requiring appointments, imposing delays, and otherwise denying non-prohibited individuals access to their fundamental right to bear arms is unconstitutional.”
In addition, the letters request public records regarding forms, policies, practices, and other documents regarding firearm carry licenses and applications. These letters were sent the same day FPC told all issuing authorities that they “are required to objectively process a carry permit application submitted to you without burdensome fees, delays, flaming hoops, and other games.”
