Good luck! I cant believe as cash strapped as CA is they would not slap a tax on CCW permits and give it a go. I assume residents would be willing to pay a little extra as long as it was not some huge punitive amount designed to make the permit out of reach. What say you Californians, would you pay and extra $50 or so on top of the usual application fee to be able to actually get a CCW permit. One thing politicians love is a good bribe, maybe you could bring that to their attentions.
