Dear Supporter of Concealed Carry,
SAFE OC Political Action Committee is pleased to announce its upcoming event, "An Evening With John R. Lott, Ph.D.," on November 4th at the Pacific Club in Newport Beach.
Dr. Lott is Senior Research Scientist at the University of Maryland, College Park, and is the author of "More Guns, Less Crime," "The Bias Against Guns," and "Freedomnomics." His research demonstrates that states that enact "shall issue" concealed carry laws experience a decrease in violent crime and consequently an increase in public safety.
The evening will include a cocktail reception beginning at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m., including a presentation by Dr. Lott on his research into the relationship between CCW and public safety. Proceeds from the event will go to support SAFE OC's effort to elect a pro-CCW Sheriff of Orange County.
Bill Hunt, former Chief of Police for San Clemente and candidate for Sheriff in 2010, will attend the event as well. Mr. Hunt has publicly pledged to restore liberal CCW issuance if elected, and SAFE OC has endorsed Mr. Hunt unanimously.
With appointed sheriff Hutchens aggressively fundraising and garnering some endorsements from leading elected officials, it is time for pro-CCW citizens to rally and strike back. If you are a current or former CCW holder, you invested hundreds if not thousands of dollars to obtain your CCW — won't you consider investing an equal amount to preserve your rights?
Don't miss this exciting event and the chance to support a Sheriff who will respect your right to personal safety and our Orange County values of freedom and trust between law enforcement and citizenry.
Hope to see you on November 4!
