CCW Numbers In Orange County Are On The Rise!

December 20, 2016

Most of California’s county sheriffs now liberally issue CCWs to their respective county residents. As a result, there are more than 34,000 active CCW permits in California today. Still, this number is relatively small compared to California’s population. In most “shall-issue” states, about 5% of the population gets a CCW. But in California, less than 0.08% of residents have a CCW.

We want you to help change that.

The California Department of Justice has estimated that there were approximately 2,906 valid CCW permits in 2015 issued by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. But as of this October, that number has skyrocketed to over 9,300, with many more applications still pending. Compared to the estimated 34,000 total number of CCW permits in California for 2015, that number is staggering.

The tremendous growth is a direct result of OCSD generally issuing CCWs to those who seek it, as well as the fact that not a single OCSD CCW holder has illegally used their firearm since the shift in policy.

In “shall-issue” states, violent crime goes down. This is no longer a theoretical debate. The gun ban lobby’s claims that more citizens carrying firearms in public will lead to more violence has been thoroughly disproven by real word experience in the 40 “shall-issue” states.
