CCW-Friendly Sheriff Reports No Incidents With Permit Holders

What would happen, in typically anti-gun California, if a county sheriff decided to actually issue concealed-carry permits to nearly all of those who want them, rather than turning down the vast majority as most sheriffs do?

Gun-banner logic says “road rage shootouts” would prevail, the “Wild, Wild West” would break out and “blood would run in the streets.” Wrong!

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones and his staff approve nearly 95 percent of the permit applications they receive. In fact, anyone with a clean record can fill out an application, go through an interview process, and undergo background checks and required training—they no longer need a “justifiable reason.” The result: Sheriff Jones recently told Fox40 that he has never had a gun-related incident with a CCW permit holder.

And the response by anti-gunners: Zzzzzzz.
