The Orange County Register is reporting today that OC Sheriff Sandra Hutchens has revoked the concealed weapons permit from the dark lord himself, Mike Schroeder.
Norberto Santana is reporting:
Hutchens this week notified attorney Mike Schroeder, the main adviser and closest ally to former Sheriff Mike Carona, that she is terminating his permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Schroeder, the former chairman of the state Republican Party, said he’s not happy and plans to fight back.
“I believe that the action they are taking violates the law. And I’m reviewing what my legal options are at this point,” Schroeder said. “I do believe that the sheriff has very broad discretion as to whether or not to issue a CCW, yet her claims that the law requires her to refuse to issue CCWS in most circumstances is simply false.”
This is a calculated move by Hutchens since she will be running for election and needs strong Republican support to win.
