In Gibson v. Commonwealth, 237 Ky. 33, 34 S.W.2d 936 (1936), the High Court stated: “[I]t is the tradition that a Kentuckian never runs. He does not have to.”
A small (very small) ray of sunshine out of that disgrace of a "state".
My county just got mandated to take a step in the right egalitarian direction and for a little more sunshine on CCW permit issuance. The court ruled that it can't mandate LASD how to use its discretion in issuance but that it may no longer avoid discretion by refusing to consider every application in the county by requiring applicants to jump through their local incorporated PD hoop first. Also, with Sheriff Baca's resignation last week as chief of the department, CCW permit issuance will be up for public scrutiny as candidates for sheriff at least try to position themselves. We still have a long way to go to consider good moral character as not under adjudication or parole for felonious acts and for good cause as being mere self defense.

I'm sure it's not the end of 'stalling games' in that county...look what IL has been able to do with their stalling rules.

I'm trying to see what was won, and am having a tough time.

It's still a might-never-issue state in which the county sheriff's decision is law. It won't make a bit of difference in the number of CHL's granted, in that county, even if they back down to strictly the state requirements, 'cause an anti-gun sheriff can stop 'em colder 'n' a mackerel just by saying "no."
With more and more of the county's in this state issuing permits San Diego, LA, and Bay area residents are becoming more vocal about their rights! And they should! DR
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
