Jim Crow alive and well in California

A reddit user posted this requirement for a concealed weapon’s permit in Imperial County:

imperial county cwp req

 

It is still amazing that these type of demands are up and running in the 21st Century. Missouri, a state that lately has been getting beaten over and over on the news lately and has been accused of having the weakest Shall-Issue CWP laws in , dropped the letter of reference crap in 2004.  And yes, the LEO Letter was to keep minorities from getting permits, pretty much as a poll tax or literacy test was designed to keep them from voting.

And what really makes this more insulting is that the Sheriff of Imperial County should know better.

Then again, Gun Control is about Control and that is too tasty for anybody from any race yearning for power to pass up.

  1. Plenty of southern states and counties have these still, too.

    So.. yeah – they’re still around- which is why working within your local community and knowing what kind of sheriff is running are so important. I never used to pay attention to this until I discovered my 2A Spirit.

  2. What makes you think that the Sheriff ought to know better? If memory serves me correctly stomping on the hands and heads of folks behind you after you have climbed out of the pit is pretty much standard operating procedure. Don’t you know that if everybody got privelege there would not be enough to go around? (last sentence = sarcasm? maybe.)

  3. My home county had a Reconstruction era law that stated no revovlers other than those produced by Colt or Remington could be purchases or carried.

    Being the Kimbers of the day and hella expensive, that effectively denied Freedmen the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

    Too bad the DOJ doesn’t think the 14th Amendment doesn’t apply to all the entire Constitution.

  4. I think we should be hurling the charge of racism every time we see this abuse. The Left/Progressives/Democrats sure seem to pull out the race card about everything; except actual racism.

    I wonder if some one should go in there with a copy of the Constitution and point out the 2nd, 10th, and 14th Amendments and ask why he is such a special snowflake (and with a crystal ball) that grants him ability to deny civil rights. Perhaps threaten to sue regarding civil rights.

    I know we have law suits about the differential issuing of CCWs here in crazy California. Perhaps it is best to bring in copies of the successful slap downs and the Ninth Circuit ruling to get the point across that he had better start flying straight.
