Right on Daily has written about the corruption of local gun rights groups in Riverside County. In particular is H Paul Payne of the local NRA. He and his crew launched SPAM drills against previous posts against him in an attempt to silence your intrepid blogger.
H Paul Payne controls the NRA in Southern California and is a morally reprehensible human being. (At least that is what I think of him and you will also once you are done reading this series)
H Paul Payne is an out and proud Stan Sniff sycophant. Evidence I have collected tells me that he has seen to Sniff being endorsed by the NRA consistently over the years despite 2+ year waiting periods and very narrow and subjective criteria for CCW Permits. Sniff believed that the CCW Permit issue had become so toxic for him, that months after predicting doom for the Sheriff’s office over the FY 2018 budget, he “found” $10 Million to pay some retired guys and divert others to processing CCW Permit applications. There was a backlog estimated at 10,000 applications (there is no way of knowing since the real numbers were concealed).
Even with the wait now cut to something like 4 months, there have only been about 2,000 more Permits issued. Contrast this with Orange County that has issued some 5,000 new permits in the first half of 2018 and boasts well over 12,000 in force. (Orange is roughly double Riverside in Population)
However, Sniff is still declining CCW applications for absurd and arbitrary reasons. This is why Cal Guns and 4 other groups have sued the Corrupt Sheriff over his CCW Issuance practices.
Sniff has been the subject of withering criticism over the CCW Issue for years. His CCW practices have been the subject of many confidential informants. Sniff has long been accused of selling CCW Permits (and Helicopter Rides) to donors. I’ve been told several stories about this from people with first hand knowledge. However, based on conclusions I have drawn, I am of the opinion that the officers currently processing CCW Permits that are familiar with the corruption of the process want to keep their paychecks. See our exhaustive Expose’ of years-long criticisms of Sniff CCW permits.
One such person may or may not be Frank Aguirre, a TAP Employee processing applications who was one reputed source of complaints about the abuse of process.
Desiree Payne, the soon to be ex-wife of H Paul Payne has gone on the record with your intrepid blogger. She has provided me emails, photos and testimony about several questionable actions by Payne. Payne appears to be mentally unstable, a bully and corrupt to his core. No amount of threats from his divorce attorney will disabuse me of that opinion. (Ask Mohammad how having an attorney threaten me works) It is also the opinion of this blogger based on facts I have learned that the Corrupt Sheriff may very well be providing cover for Payne’s personal corruption.
So many others have had their bad behavior covered by the Sheriff, why not cover the gatekeeper of the local gun groups?
See a recent social media screed from Sniff’s primary CCW Vendor who fails to mention his financial interest in the Sheriff’s Race. This guy is another in the filthy web that has become the Sheriff’s Office and the sick joke that the NRA has become in many parts of the country.
When H Paul Payne was not busy rigging the NRA endorsement for Stan Sniff – who is now being sued over his arbitrary an dunconstitutional CCW Issuance practices – he also planted a GPS Tracker in his wife’s car and attempted to blame Chad Bianco for it. Kinda sounds like Mohammad trying to frame Heidi Chebetah for Sign Damage, or Halimah Shengur faking a hate crime or the corrupt and unhinged Kurly running to the Palm Springs City Council with hysterics.
I give CalGuns a major Hat Tip for standing up for Gun Rights and not selling out like the NRA, H Paul Payne or other vendors with financial conflicts of interest.
