That is exactly WHY I escaped New Jerkistan for VA! Lol

I was born and raised in San Bernardino. My brothers still live there. It has become the sh** hole of So. Cal these days. Back in the day, my older brother and I started our LE careers in San Bernardino.

I was finally able to get my concealed permit when we moved to a rural county. In Sacramento County the process can take a year, but at least they're being issued. Up until a couple of years ago you just flat out couldn't get one there.

Even though I had my permit, there were a myriad of other reasons why we left the state. Far left state government, socialist mindset, Big Brother laws and regulations, enviro-nazis, crime, illegals and cost of living to name a few. I mean, they reelected Jerry "Governor Moonbeam" Brown for crying out loud! I'm delighted to be back in America.

I don't think the strict gun control laws are entirely to blame. If criminals did not have it so good in prison I don't think they would be so eager to get back there. I have a friend in prison and he says it's not that bad. Three meals a day, education, work, and a secure place to sleep. and a judicial system that allows cons to still conduct business as usual. No wonder there is such a high recidivism rate.

But there might be a lot fewer of them incarcerated if CCW permits were readily available to good citizens.

The only reason the ass hat Jerry Brown was elected this time is that the masses that voted for him weren't even born the first go-a-round !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In Idaho, and I am sure of every state, if you point a gun at someone, they consider that to be an assault and you can go to jail for that.

Not necessarily. If you point a gun at someone to deter aggression, or to hold a criminal awaiting arrival of police, you might get a medal. At least here in your neighboring free state of Wyoming.

the only time to point a gun at anyone is when you feel your life is in danger
