Statewide, there has been an increase in applications, the result of a 2014 appellate court case. The judges ruled that San Diego’s good cause policy infringed on residents’ Second Amendment right to bear arms for self-defense.
In SLO County, there are currently 571 active permits. In 2014, 239 people filed applications for new or renewed permits. Permits expire every two years.
