Shall-Issue Carry Measure Introduced In California

posted on February 18, 2017

In a state where the majority of politicians have lost all respect for the Second Amendment, one assemblywoman is fighting for the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

Assemblywoman Melissa A. Melendez has introduced AB 757, which would clarify that self-defense is an acceptable “good cause” for the purposes of obtaining a concealed-carry permit, effectively making California a shall-issue state.

“It is our constitutional right to defend ourselves,” Melendez said. “Californians should not be subjugated to the personal beliefs of one individual who doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment. If a citizen passes the background check and completes the necessary safety training requirements, there should be no reason to deny them a CCW.”

Under current law, a county sheriff or police chief has the sole discretion on the issuance of a concealed-carry weapon (CCW) permit.
