More carry permits in Sacramento County?
Hat tip to Dan Gifford....
And this liberalized attitude would have nothing at all to do with Sykes, et. al. v McGinness which has been filed by Alan Gura?

Nope. The Sheriff only filed a motion to conduct discovery so he could find some way to grant permits to the plaintiffs in our case and attempt to moot it. Too bad they're boring people who only have the need for self defense...

And of course civilian gun carriers will do something stupid like shooting themselves in the leg. Why, look at the data from the thousands of counties all over the United States that have shall-issue laws -- people are shooting themselves in the leg all the time. Not!
Now, I would not have been surprised if it was the Brady idiot saying this. But it was the gun owner (Perry) -- they must have looked pretty hard to find one that had a foot on both sides.

I suspect that many (most?) of the political LEOs who resist issuing permits are afraid of being asked by a reporter "what, can't your department protect us?" To which the legally correct answer is, of course, "No, that's not my job," but in general no politician dares say that for the record.
But when budget cuts make it clear that police "protection" will decline no matter what, the perceived risk to these LEOs of issuing more permits declines substantially.
