Carona and Baca Debate Concealed Weapons

I stumbled across this link to a video with interviews of our own Sheriff Carona and L.A. County’s Sheriff Baca discussing very different views on concealed weapon permits. In the video, Carona seems to argue that carrying concealed weapons can reduce the crime rate. Evidently the video was made prior to the arrest of Raymond Yi, an Orange County off-duty reserve deputy who, if memory serves me correctly, was Carona’s martial arts instructor. I wonder how the interview would’ve been different after that incident. (Interestingly, in the video Carona criticized the issuance of concealed weapon permits to cronies of the sheriff. Like Yi. Hmmmm.)

    Carona doesn’t really criticize the issuance of concealed weapons permits to “cronies”, but points out that it has been a point brought up in some places that need permits. It actually is pretty easy to get a concealed weapon permit in Orange County regardless of whether you have connections or not.
