San Diego Sheriff flooded with applications for concealed weapons permits

by Christian De La Rosa

San Diego County Sheriff's Department LogoSan 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.
