Thomas Moyer joined Apple in January of 2006 and worked up the ranks to Head of Global Security in November of 2018. On his LinkedIn, he describes his position as being “responsible for strategic management of Apple's corporate and retail security, crisis management, executive protection, investigations, and new product secrecy.” Guns are likely part of the job as part of the protection and security tasks, so one would think a concealed carry gun permit shouldn't be a problem for a high ranking exec. Alas that is actually not the case.
Over the previous two-years, the Santa Clara Sheriff’s Office has been under investigation for bribery. Through the course of the investigation it was found that the indicted “Undersheriff Sung, aided by Captain Jensen in one instance, held up the issuance of CCW licenses, refusing to release them until the applicants gave something of value.” According to the district attorney for the Santa Clara area, Jeff Rosen, four concealed carry weapons (CCW) licenses were withheld from Apple employees. Sung and Jensen then “managed to extract from Thomas Moyer a promise that Apple would donate iPads to the Sheriff’s Office” The promised "donation" would have delivered 200 iPads, worth approximately $70,000, but the deal was scrapped following a search warrant issued on the sheriff’s office which seized all CCW license records.
