So who in OC has a CCW Permit?

CCW

When we initially submitted our public records request for the names and cities of Carry Concealed Weapons (CCW) permit holders in Orange County, we planned to post the information as a public service. Then we got to the thinking about it part and took a different direction.

Greenhut: Moorlach views Norby as demagogue

Steven Greenhut penned one of his more balanced columns on Sunday (Moorlach ‘grows’ in office), which he follows up on in a post on the Orange Punch blog today.
