We keep hearing about some extremes with CCW issue - where folks have high risk jobs or situations, only to be denied.
I am imaging (here is the flippancy!) - that legitimate requests that are turned down be followed up by having the Sheriff responsible being signatory to a document of responsibility.
He must sign to the effect that having disallowed a fair request for personal protection he and his department will guarantee the person's safety. If they fail, then said department will pay compensation to the the remaining members of the guy's family should he be injured or killed by a criminal act - one where it could reasonably be assumed he might have survived if armed.
OK - pie-in-sky I know! :rolleyes: But makes me think what a very different complexion it might put on decisions.!
