Every two years, there are historical moments in United States history that define who our leaders will be and what our laws will say. 2018 is an incredibly important year for every gun owner in California. June 5th will mark the date that our Second Amendment will either be protected or rejected. In 57 counties throughout the state, the people of California will be responsible for electing a sheriff who believes in the Second Amendment. It must be understood that if we do not show up to the polls on June 5th, our civil rights will be in jeopardy for the years to come.
Sheriffs decide whether to approve or deny your CCW. Electing the wrong sheriff will eliminate this process all together and a sheriff who support CCWs is responsible for determining the time frame for reviewing CCW applications. A sheriff who truly understands their duty will uphold the Constitution with regards to protecting the Second Amendment. We must vote, and we must vote for a sheriff who believes in, and supports, the Constitution.
Equally as important as electing the right sheriff, electing the best district judge is of the upmost importance. Judges make the decisions that affect our gun rights for years to come. Judges hear the cases when law-abiding gun owners use their firearms for self-defense and local judges often advance to higher office. The judges that we elect on June 5, 2018 will determine our rights in the future.
