    Hi, from California

    Hi. I'm a new guy here. I am a resident of California and recently got an Arizona CCW. I would like to get other non-resident permits and wonder which states to go to. I would like to have a CCW for as many states as possible.
    As everyone knows a CCW is difficult in California. I had a California CCW in the early nineties as I was able to squeeze one out here in San Diego because I was a physician (late nights on the road, etc.). The clerk at the sheriff's office started to balk at each renewal since "self defense without a reason" is not good enough. Do you believe it was a clerk?!! The hoops became such a hassle that I gave up. They made me get letters from president of the medical group and several other administrators (I work in a 300+ doctor group), and they started to balk about "liability".
    Is there much going on in California to make it a "shall issue" state? I won't hold my breath with the current administation, but(believe it or not) they are probably going to pass a law saying that being a state politician is an indication of need!!! I belong to the NRA and the CRPA, but don't see a whole lot happening in this regard.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
