Sacramento, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- Your ability to obtain a concealed carry permit in California is now on the desk of the anti-2nd Amendment Gov. Brown.

He has a 24/7 armed bodyguard. You probably don't. That means you will be defenseless against the thousands of violent felons Brown has released early from prison and others who are encouraged to commit crimes because Brown has changed many offenses from felonies to misdemeanors.

This is what the bills on Brown's desk do:

AB 450 CCW Permit Fees:

  • Would require that the fee charged for a CCW application must cover the full costs of both issuing and enforcing the permit.

AB 466 CCW “Good Cause” Definition:

  • Would require that the applicant present facts to distinguish the applicant from the average person and must show that the applicant faces greater harm that the general public.

Both bills were introduced by Assembly member Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento):

“A CCW permit is a privilege and should only be given to those who have a genuine need to carry a concealed firearm,” said Assemblymember McCarty, adding “already strained local governments shouldn’t be forced to cut essential programs because the fees for this privilege don’t cover the full costs to Police and Sheriff’s Departments.”

But wait, there's more from Sacramento …

California lawmakers advance bill to decriminalize prostitution for minors.

SB 1322, authored by Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles), would make the crimes of solicitation and loitering with intent to commit  prostitution misdemeanors inapplicable to children younger than 18.

Update your info sources. AB 466 was another odious gut and amend bill like AB 450, but 466 has since been re-gutted and re-amended and has nothing to do with 2A anymore. They gave up on that one (for now, anyway).

A CCW permit is a privilege.” Outrageous! This statement clearly shows how out of touch, ignorant, and completely disregard the Constitution.

SB 1322 is illogical. If crimes of solicitation and loitering with intent to commit prostitution are misdemeanors inapplicable to children younger than 18. Then how are they going to prosecute statuary rape? I don’t get it.

Wow, I’m stunned. Exempting under 18 teenagers from prosecution will only entice them into prostitution. I loved how they raised what constitutes Grand Theft from $500 to $900 too. If you are a criminal, California is the place to be!

Khalifornia has turned into a big toilet and it is time to flush it and get some clean water. The whole state is a disgrace all thanks to the democrats.

I find it hard to believe that the costs of issuing and “enforcing” CCW permits is causing budgetary shortfalls. Given that many counties are almost No-Issue, what’s the cost? How is it that in many other states the fees can be as low as $10?

Present fees covered the costs BEFORE the new restrictions were signed into law. And those fees accumulated to the point where the state raided the fund to balance the budget and finance other programs… not that that many people were issued CCWs, which makes me wonder why it costs more now when fewer CCWs are being issued.
