Earlier today, sources confirmed that California’s sheriffs, through their California State Sheriffs’ Association, are behind the anti-CCW Assembly Bill 1134.
AB 1134 is an outright attack on the carry license (“CCW”) application process, a new burden on applicants, and a blatant attempt to overturn the Los Angeles Superior Court’s decision in Lu v. Baca (currently on appeal) and the longstanding precedent of Salute v. Pitchess.
AB 1134 removes the duty of sheriffs to accept and process applications. Under AB 1134, any sheriff could — by nothing more than a wink-nod agreement with a police chief of a city in their county — institute a system by which all carry license applicants would have to apply with that police chief — and that police chief only.
AB 1134 is a direct assault on California’s carry license system….and it’s scheduled to be heard on April 7!
