Gun access for the politically connected

Access to a concealed carry permit in Los Angeles may depend on one's willingness to support the local sheriff. LA Weekly reports:
In L.A. County, records show, most of the permits go to judges and reserve deputies. But there is another group that seems to have better luck than most in obtaining permits: friends of Lee Baca. Those who've given the sheriff gifts or donated to his campaign are disproportionately represented on the roster of permit holders.
