    You'll get some good help with that here.

    Some kindly forum member will "word that up" for you much better than I could do it.

    Keep checking back.

    I would keep it short and sweet noting the fact that you work at odd hours when crime is high and numerous "street" people are present and that you fear for you safety as the police can't be everywhere at once. I don't know that I would include the fact that the police aren't responsible for my protection as that may sound a little bit "aggresive". State your concerns truthfuly and I'm sure that it will work out. Good luck!!

    State all of the facts that you have and find out how long it would take for the police to get to your house in the case of an emergency and note that. If you live out in the country that is much better. If you have ever been threatened due to your job or on the way to your job. If you know anyone in law enforcement that can give you a reference letter that tells that they have discussed the awesome responsibility of carrying a firearm with you that will help.

    Digging through some old threads. Interesting stuff but almost all of it still very relevant.

    In California all that was listed above is defined as personal defense. PD will not work in general. You need to show Good Cause. Basically what makes you more of a target for a BG as compared to the average person.

    Keep in mind California is "May Issue" state with generaly the county sheriff making the call. However reality is, some counties are Shall Issue all the way to other counties being for all intents and purposes No Issue.

    My explanation of Good Cause above is based on a sheriff that is fair as far as interpreting "May Issue".
