@CSGV Distorts The Facts (Again) UPDATE

Ladd Everitt posts this inflammatory tweet:

Looking at the article, it says this:
The same sources say Bisbee obtained a concealed weapons permit from the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.
But wait a minute, Sacramento County is was a NO ISSUE county under the discriminatory laws of CA up until the last year or so, so how did the shooter get one?

Oh, he was a STATE LICENSED security guard. IOW, a state approved and trained 'Only One'.

But never let the facts get in the way of some good fear mongering, right Ladd?

The map at CA Concealed Carry is out of date; Sacramento county has been shall issue for a good portion of this year thanks to the efforts of CalGuns. As usual, the media's story doesn't make the permitting process clear. A guard card can enable a person to get a firearm permit, which allows a guard to openly carry a loaded handgun while on duty, but provides no permission to carry concealed. Conversely, a CCL permits a person to carry a loaded handgun in a concealed fashion, but not openly, at any time.

Sacramento County has issued for self defense for over a year now. They're virtual shall issue.

I see the PEG heads have it on their facebook page too.

Blake: You're almost right. There's a provision in the law to get an Open Carry License in counties with a population of less than 250,000, but why bother when a CCW license is just as easy to get.

Still, the GFWs and their enablers in the media got it all wrong. To them a gun license is a gun license, no matter whether it's issued by BSIS or one of the ~50 County Sheriffs that aren't afraid of law-abiding citizens defending themselves.
