Jeff Rausin: Speed up process for concealed carry permits in Stanislaus County

March 3, 2014 

Regarding “ Concealed carry permits increase level of protection” (Opinions, Feb. 28, Op-ed): Kudos to Sheriff Adam Christianson with regard to his proactive stance on law-abiding citizens’ right to obtain concealed carry permits for self-protection.

If I might add one suggestion, though, it is that he should try to speed up the process a bit, as a year wait is a bit long for the appointments.

While I generally frown upon increasing fees, taxes, etc., I believe that the sheriff has done the best he can with the limited financial resources connected to the whole CCW process. Perhaps additional fees to hire additional quality staff might be a solution.
