San Diego County Sheriff’s Department officials said they are inundated with calls from citizens seeking gun permits and warn the waiting list to get an appointment is least a 6 months.
Over 1,600 people in the last few weeks, averaging 65 applicants a day, have contacted the San Diego Sheriff’s Department requesting a concealed weapons permit. The number of applicants is more than double the department’s average.
“It’s been described as a Tsunami,” said Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Caldwell.
The surge immediately followed California’s 9th Circuit Federal Appeals Court opinion last month, calling the state’s “good cause” standard unconstitutional.
