Orange County Complies with Court Ruling
By Harold Hutchison
Orange County, California, which is located near Los Angeles, is now complying with a court ruling that struck down the “good cause” requirement for the issuance of concealed carry permits.
According to a report from the Washington Times, Sandra Hutchens, the sheriff of Orange County, has announced that permits will now be issued for those who seek them for personal defense – and that they will no longer be required to “explain and provide good cause for issuance of the license.”
The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued a similar ruling forcing Illinois to pass a “shall issue” concealed carry law last year. Circuit Courts have upheld “good cause” requirements in New Jersey, Maryland, and New York.
