City of Antioch: Adopt City of Antioch Concealed Weapon (CCW) Resolution

    2. Petition by

      Jonathan Hernandez

      Antioch, United States

All extensive research along with independent studies show that Gun Control Laws implemented such as most recently AB 144, Brady Act, and numerous others have failed to do what they were signed into law to do, in fact the stats show that since these laws were implemented they have done the opposite of what they were supposed to. All research and independent studies show that the more citizens we train and allow to be armed the safer the community becomes. We have a crime rate that has grown 80 percent since last year in both violent and property crimes, we are the Most Dangerous City in Contra Costa County and the 2nd Worst City in the Bay Area. We need this Shall Issue Policy to give us our right and allow us to protect ourselves, family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.

This Shall Issue Concealed Carry Policy will require applicants to prove they are Antioch Residents, they are of Good Moral Character, they have successfully completed a training course in the Use and handling of Firearms, Laws and Use of Force, and lastly have a reasonable Good Cause statement that can be simply stated as Self Protection or the Protection of self, family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. As long as applicants can meet these qualifications seth forth by the California Penal Code Section 12050,  the issuing authority Antioch Police Department Shall Issue the permit to the applicant.

      I believe that the crime rate will go down in our community if good citizens are allowed to arm and protect themselves.

      With the average time it takes for law enforcement to respond to violent crimes or active shooters I believe it is the responsibility and honor of the individual able bodies to defend not only themselves and their families, but their fellow citizens as well.

    • Alexander Lubbe PITTSBURG, CA

      Because there are situations where you need to have a gun to defend yourself.

      Why wouldn't I sign? Every citizen should have the ability (they already have the right, but are often denied that right!) to obtain a ccw/chl/etc in their city/county/state of residence if they are able to legally purchase and own a firearm. While I do believe some education and experience is necessary for a ccw holder to carry responsibly and for the ccw holder to have a full understanding of the possible consequences of using deadly force, however, my understanding is that attending (and passing) a ccw course is already covered under the requirements for obtaining a ccw statewide in California. If a person is responsible enough to own a firearm, there is no reason they cannot carry it safely and therefore there is no reason they should be barred from carrying it as, where, and when they deem fit (with reasonable exceptions) as a measure to ensure their safety and the safety of their family members and loved ones.

      Safety for my family and friends
