Colion Noir: Concealed Carry Whilst Pooping

Concealed carry hasn't quite translated to the masses here in SoCal (the waiting list is pretty darn long), but when it does I'm sure many of us here will be stuck with a serious problem.  I never really considered going number two while supporting the number two amendment might pose some serious challenges.  Colion Noir talks poop and guns in his latest vid, check it out:

Sound off in the comments below if you have some good ideas for concealed carry whilst pooping.

Law Suit For Lack Of Orange County CCW

This may come as a surprise to my readers who don't live in California, but we have major concealed carry issues in our state.  See in you gun friendly state you just take a class, fill out some paperwork, and pay some cash and you can carry concealed.  In California the issuance of a CCW is at the discretion of the county sheriff or chief of police.  So as you might expect, those super liberal counties (and those adjacent to them) don't really give out CCWs and more rural conservative places do.  So if you get a permit to carry concealed in a rural place you can carry anywhere in the state as well as a few other states California has reciprocity with.

The big reason most county sheriffs don't give them out is because there has to be a "good reason" for having the permit.  Self defense does not really count as a good reason in the eyes of the sheriff in liberal counties.  If you own a business where you transport a ton of cash or jewelry you might be able to make a case, but even that is no guarantee in places like Los Angeles or Orange County.

It is damned near impossible to get a CCW in LA or OC, and finally someone is suing the OC sheriff about this.  The case is claiming that no one gets CCW permits in OC and being that open carry is now illegal people are really only allowed to defend themselves with a firearm at home.  Every where else.... Well, you're on your own and hopefully you've got a nice knife. 

These types of law suits typically don't get too much traction but hell, even if it moves things in the right direction I'd be happy.  What these counties often overlook is that CCWs generate revenue for the state in the from of taxes on weapons, ammunition, and accessories as well as keep money in local economies through firearms classes and purchasing said items at local gun stores. 

Carrying concealed means lives saved and less crime; everybody but the criminals win.  I'm not going to rush out and buy a new handgun, but if a miracle did happen I might start shopping around for a S&W M&P.  You can read more about the court case here.
