From L.A. PAREDES at Gun Owners of California
Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones is one of those very unique elected officials who has kept a campaign promise: he pledged to approve more concealed carry handgun permits than his predecessors.
And boy, has he delivered, raising the total number of permits held in Sacramento County from about 350 in 2010 to a current number that totals roughly 8,000.
But this has not been without controversy. He has been called irresponsible, and members of the legislature have gone so far as to say he dispenses CCW permits “like Halloween candy.”
