Well, they closed that loop hole. That was probably the only way licenses were issued there. Now no one will be able to get a ccw in Santa Clara county.

At a minimum, I think this will force the sheriff's dept. to begin reviewing applications. As the DA said, applications from law abiding citizens, following the proper procedures, were tossed in a filing cabinet and forgotten or thrown in the trash. I think the DA's office is now going to be watching and probably insisting that application reviews begin. I suspect that once corrupt smith is out of the way, there'll be a few in the dept. that are supportive of issuance. I'm sure it's not going to go to shall issue but some form of eased good cause will take place and that'll be a good first step. My application was submitted back in 2014 and I have the email from the sheriff's ccw person acknowledging that my application had been received.

My guess is the only reason SCSD got in trouble was for not paying the Governors office off.

Defense Attorney stands before Judge and says "Your Honor these fine Officers of the law were simply trying to replace some of the funding that has been taken away due to all the very peaceful protest of BLM. Your Honor that money is sorely needed to protect the citizens of our wonderful community.It certainly cannot be a bribe it is community funding Your Honor."

Back to reality, They should have to pay heavy fines and do some time.

IMO a good public corn-holing before they are sent to prison for denying citizens civil rights.

Those four SOBs need to become live organ donors.
The ONLY way to teach the Government class that it serves at the pleasure of the People is to eliminate those who break that trust.

Live organ donor works for me.

I'm thinking the Sheriff's department captain got in trouble for simply issuing CCW permits... period.

In the eyes of these liberal commies, corruption isn't such a big problem. They thrive on corruption. Look at the Clinton's, the Biden's, all the top democrats are corrupt as hell. Rather, I think the captain got into trouble because the commie power mandate there hates the 2nd amendment and doesn't want any civilians to be able to carry a weapon.

No, it's not just capt. jensen. As the DA said, there'll be more indictments in the coming weeks. Corrupt smith should be one of them. Nothing goes on there that she, being the control freak, that she is, doesn't know about. All of this money went to her reelection campaign through another entity. There's no way she didn't know what was going on.

I can't help but go off on a brief tangent for all of you out of staters. If you want to read about the ultimate in corruption and hypocrisy, look up leland yee. What makes it even worse is that this worthless loser was born in china and came to this country at some point and once in a political office was one of the main anti-gun state politicians.

OK, back on topic.

I remember Leeland Yee, that was a couple years ago. I thought he was in some trouble for that?

The California CCW joke

Last I heard the 9th Circus Court of Appeals was close to 50/50 Right/left judges now, thanks to Trump. Four more years of Trump and a few more judicial appointments and maybe we will see this era of stupid lefty anti-gun crap in CA come to an end.

I got mine in next door Arizona, but it ain't no good in CA. Just had to pay a few bucks in bribes, fill out an application, and submit a copy of DD-214 along with finger prints. With states converting to "shall issue", maybe I won't need to renew it when the time comes!

A corrupt sheriff is news?! OOOOHHHH.... it's someone in office wasn't getting their cut and ratted him out! Now THAT makes sense! Same thing here, our sheriff, Lonny Parabuk, ran as pro-gun/pro-law and order. HAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, saying that always cracks me up. To get a concealed carry permit he asked you three simple questions: How much HAVE you given to his campaign? How ARE you giving to his campaign? How much are you going to GIVE in the future to his campaign? If the answer is none, none, none, NO PERMIT to use your Constitutional Rights which the Constitution does NOT guarantee you, it only states that you ALREADY HAVE THESE RIGHTS AND THE GOV'T CAN"T TAKE THEM AWAY! (Which is true, they can't, but you CAN GIVE THEM AWAY! Which has/is happening.)

Any way, a pastor in another county had a permit for 40 years and when the Pastor started looking into corruption in the county, especially the sheriff's office, POW! NO PERMIT! He sued, the trial lasted 15 minutes start to finish (yes, really) as the sheriff was put on the stand first and asked "Why was this man deneighed a permit?" "Because he doesn't give to my campaign and is investigating corruption in local gov't and that is cutting into my money supply/flow! I hope he get shot and dies! I've been charging for permits for years and I'm not stopping now!" (yes, really). The judge stopped the trial (probably to keep the sheriff from saying something he shouldn't about other people, as much as the sheriff admited he was corrupt, which of course is redundant.)

The judge ordered the sheriff to give the pastor a permit, NOW! Which the sheriff refused to do. EVER. STILL hasn't. This caused so many people to come forward (99 counties, so people in about 85 counties reported that their sheriff was corrupt, people in 3 counties were afraid to say it due to threats) that the politicos were forced to act (and not getting their cut had nothing not do with it!) and make Iowa a SHALL ISSUE state (HAHAHAHA! Yeah, right!) and actually listed the corrupt sheriff and Lonny as reasons they went to SHALL ISSUE. Of course Lonny was in the local rag saying he didn't support the SHALL ISSUE, especially as his campaign funds dried up over night, because he had to issue permits to criminals! WHAT CrIMINALS?! Well if you EVER got a parking ticket, speeding ticket, jay-walked, spit on the side walk, YOU WERE A CRIMINAL AND DIDN'T DESERVE TO HAVE ANY RIGHTS! (again, not kidding).

As usual, the sheriffs all over the US run scams like the "last payment for fine" scam. You get a fine, say a crack head that had been arrested over 600 times in that county (and a few thousand arrests each in four or five other counties) attacked you by climbing in a window and punching you and you screwed up by calling the po-LICE to report it and they arrest YOU and let the crackhead walk (again, real case. Semi-happy ending, except for the girl who was kidnapped at knife point and raped on camera of course. The crackhead is doing life, but of course the po-lice are STILL trying to get him out of prison to keep the crime rate up to justify their toys, like the attack helicopter with live machineguns and live rocket pods. Always wondered just WHO they intended to machinegun/blow up with it! Gun owners? Trump supporters? They sure as hell didn't seem to worry about rioters and arsonists). You pay your fine, 9 months later (I have heard from people all over the US, 9 months/one year seems to be about right) you get a statement from the sheriff, you didn't pay your last $100 fine payment.

You, not being an idiot, had it stamped "PAID IN FULL", laminated, and put in a bank drawer/deposit box. You take it in, they laugh it off as a "mistake" (that you keep proof, not that they were trying to cheating you) and you leave. Well a sheriff "here" tried that, but the kid had a RICH dad who was a little PO'ed about local corruption, his rich buddies were PO'ed, and it turned out the sheriff had been doing it for 20 years! Made a cool $15,000 a year, after splitting it with all the other 20 or so corrupt officials involved with it ($300,000 in 20 years, tax free and 5 minutes of work a week, isn't bad!). The state politicos announced they were going to investigate this and state wide sheriffs were retiring right and left! A good 90% of the sheriffs retired right in the middle of their term, which I am sure was just happenstance.

Hmm...no location in your profile, and the name of the sheriff you give shows no results.

That's kind of strange.

Based on the context, I figured it was Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek.
While I have had professional issues with Sheriff Pulkrabek nor do I endorse his politics, the Poster was challenged in relating a story, spelling and, likely, gets close to slander. Maybe I am misinterpreting what he wrote...

Good call, I went and checked Lonnie's name and I did mispell it! Thanks for pointing that out.
