CA: Good cause exists to issue CCW license

New Year's Resolution: get a CCW permit
Inspired by this thread, http://rugerforum.net/tavern/138275-why-carry-gun.html I viewed the most recent County CCW appplication form.

While the form itself does not ask why I need a permit, one of the listed requirements is that good cause exists to justify conceal-carry.

My question now is what would be a "proper" answer when during the interview, I'm asked why I need a CCW permit. The thread I mentioned earlier has some witty comments but I don't think they're the kind of answers the interviewer would want to hear from me even if he/she agrees with them.

That's a tough one. Maybe just keep it simple and say as a very last resort to defend you and your loved ones from a violent attacker.

Good luck

That's about all you can say. Unfortunately, in a "may issue" state, it doesn't matter what you put there, they can deny it citing that your reason isn't good enough since "good cause" is subjective. Of course, any answer that is snarky or intentionally inciteful will get you rejected out of hand but there is no sure fire (pun intended) answer.

There is a reason line on the NH application and I use the same one my dad did: "Personal protection and sporting purposes".

I see personal protection as a valid reason and by NH law it is a valid reason plus we are a shall issue state however I don't know the intricacies of CA regulations. The NRA has a list of attorney's by state and a few dollars spent with one of them will likely bring both coaching in that area and some legal enlightenment about CC laws in general. It could be money well spent. They also may know someone that knows someone, helpful in may issue states.

I would not suggest "protection against government overbearance".

Personally, short of moving out of a "may issue" state I think the best response so far is "Personal protection and sporting purposes".

Oregon may issue CCW permits to people living in adjacent states, but only if they can provide an adequate reason. A friend of mine who lives "over the great water" (the Columbia River) put it thusly:

Quote:
"I routinely carry significant amounts of cash and other valuables into high-crime areas of Portland at night and on weekends."
This was the truth; he is a fan of the Portland Trailblazers, whose arena is in a bad part of town and their games are at night and on the weekends. As for "significant amounts of cash, etc", he said that it is a significant amount, to him.

He got the permit.

When I applied for mine, Indiana had a "reason" line on the application. I simply put, "To exercise my second amendment rights per the Constitution of the United States."

I got my concealed carry permit.

In CA the "good cause" varies by county.
Here in Stanislaus Co. "Self-defense" is acceptable. Other counties are much less lenient.

Thanks, guys for your valuable inputs.
As far as I know, Sac county's sheriff is pro-2A although he was in the news recently for his department's use of a cellphone spying device or something like that.

When I filed for my Massachusetts LTC on the "reason" line I put down "For all lawful purposes" and left it at that.
