Great, well-researched article appearing in the OC Register:
Pappas seized his opportunity and received a permit.
Late last year, he found himself in a position to draw his gun in public for the first time, when he came upon assailants beating a young teen with the handle of a sledgehammer.
Pappas is one of the nearly 8,500 Orange County residents now legally carrying concealed weapons – a nearly tenfold increase in just two years.That’s still just 0.35 percent of the county’s adult population – far below the projected national rate of 5.2 percent. But it’s a higher concentration than reported by sheriff’s officials in neighboring counties.
