“I think concealed carry permits should be handed out subjectively with an objective standard,” the chief said. “We’re a crowded place. … The last thing I need is people that aren’t trained on firearms who may not be in the right frame of mind from being so scared or having a cocktail or two. I would much rather they rely on us.”
Handed out subjectively using an objective standard?!?! WTF? That’s classic political double speak for, “you aren’t getting one unless the mayor says I have to give you one or we play poker on a regular basis together.” The good news is, the chief may not have a choice on that much longer now that the “good cause” clause commonly applied to Californa concealed carry permits has been struck down by the 9th Circuit.
