$298 Off? Why Isn’t This Good News?
This is an example of government having to solve a problem they created. The CCW process in the cities (like Riverside) have two major problems (compared to getting your CCW through Riverside County Sheriff):
1) They are far more expensive (even after the $298 discount)
2) They require a “psych review”
There is no state requirement to have a “psych review” and the required analysis is a personality test similar to what they give to police officer candidates before they are hired.
There is no requirement that you have the same personality as a police officer in order to protect yourself outside your home. These psych tests put an unnecessary financial burden on CCW applicants and don’t do anything to stop crime. The state required background check already checks to see if you have ever been committed or deemed a danger to yourself or others.
Riverside County Gun Owners recommends that you do NOT get your CCW through any of the cities; instead, go through the sheriff’s department now that Sheriff Bianco has fixed the problems with the CCW process left over from the previous administration.
