Yolo County happily denies concealed weapon permits; people of color hurt the most

The U.S. Supreme Court recently denied review of a federal appellate court’s ruling last year backing Yolo County’s longtime policy regarding concealed weapon permits.

This policy quietly targets minorities who would benefit the most from the law. Like neighboring Sacramento County, Yolo County is an enclave designed to benefit the white elites, not people of color.

Concluding nearly seven years of litigation, the decision leaves in place Yolo County’s protocol that calls for applicants to demonstrate “good cause” for carrying a concealed weapon, arguing that the Second Amendment does not guarantee that right.

Our guess is that being a person of color isn’t “good cause” in Yolo County.

Self-protection and protection of family, absent a threat of violence, is considered an invalid reason for requesting a permit.

Yolo County currently has roughly 220 concealed weapon permits issued. It’s a safe bet that these belong to Yolo County’s well heeled residents.

Enjoy your Police State.
