California –-(Ammoland.com)-   Following the Ninth Circuit decision holding “good cause” requirements unconstitutional, The Calguns Foundation projects that the number of California carry licensees will skyrocket during the first year of effective “shall-issue” licensing.

According to data sent to The Calguns Foundation by the California Department of Justice, the number of California CCW licensees in 2013 totaled about 56,000.

However, in applying projections to state and county population figures from the state's Department of Finance, Calguns believes that the number of licensees in California might reach as high as 1.4 million in the Golden State during the first year of a “shall issue” system.

The state of Illinois is expecting over 400,000 applications for Concealed Carry permits this year and they are one of the strictest concealed carry laws in the nation. They are expecting waits as long as 6 months for some of the classes.

A classic case of counting one’s chickens before they have hatched. The Peruta decision was not binding and becomes moot should I win my preliminary injunction against California’s three Open Carry bans.
