Active Concealed Weapons Permits

Lt. Fernando Martinez, Lodi Police Department

“The way our policy works is you have to show just cause to be issued a (concealed weapons permit). For the mere purpose of protecting yourself or family without any threat, that reason is kind of vague. You have to show that you’re in some kind of threat because of what you do or because you’re in danger.”

Assemblywoman Kristin Olson, R-Riverbank

“(Law enforcement agencies) should be issuing concealed weapons permits to people who apply for them, unless there is a legal reason not to. So if that is not being followed throughout the state ... then perhaps we do need some clarifying criteria and (a) standard at the state level.”

Chief Deputy Jason Gates, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office

“It’s a statewide issue (in Oregon). We’re all doing it the same way so we know the (concealed weapons) holder has gone through the same background process. We know that the process has been followed.”

Sgt. Jason Ramos, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office

“Gone are the days that a bus drivers or traveling jeweler will be denied a permit. If you want to protect your family, that’s a good enough reason for us.”

Say you’re a jeweler living in Sacramento County. You’d like to carry a concealed handgun for security reasons. If you apply for a concealed weapon permit, you are very likely to be issued one. A jeweler living in Lodi would likely be successful, too.

But one living in San Francisco is out of luck. San Francisco very rarely issues permits. In fact, there are only two in a city of 700,000.
