Want a Carry Permit in L.A.? Try paying off the Sheriff

LA Weekly is exposing a very troubling goings-on in L.A. County… something that the rest of the world has known about for some time… if you want a concealed weapons permit on Sheriff Lee Baca’s watch you better get ready to write a check.

Here is what the statistics look like… As of May 2012, out of the 10 million people that live in L.A. County only 341 people have carry permits. Thats a stark difference when compared to other nearby counties. San Bernardino County has 1,754 permit holders in 2011 with a population of only 2 million people. Kern County has 3,564 permit holders but only a population of 800,000 people.

Why the discrepancy? Because the Sheriff of L.A. County has total and complete say over who gets a carry permit. Its whats known as “may issue”. Whats the problem with that? Well, lets just say you better be well connected if you want to get approved… or you better get out your checkbook:

    When I lived in L.A. we had to go to Kern county to shoot, or the desert. L.A. is a corrupt shithole that’s not fit to live in. The cops there have always been on the take.
    I have a good friend who quit LAPD in the 70s because he didn’t want to become a criminal.

    Any illegal, Mexican, or black person can walk into LA county and file a complaint for any little thing, and the county will bend over backwards to pay you off. So by not allowing carry permits or taking bribes for permits is just their way of protecting the criminals from the law abiding citizens.

    The police officers who WANT to do their jobs in LA are held down by the corrupt pussies running the place. I don’t care WHERE the next police chief comes from…Once they get to LA, laziness and corruption kicks in within months. That goes for celebrities too – Look at some of the athletes on the major sport teams. Same thing. Lazy work ethics, criminal activity, you name it.
    It’s the LA mentality.

    Lee Baca is a notorious dhimmi who does the bidding of islamists. He’s the guy who rushed out and nabbed the anti-islam filmmaker when Obama and Hillary told him to. You can be sure that LA muslims get whatever gun permit they want.
