Apple’s Chief Security Officer, Thomas Moyer, has been charged by a California District Attorney for attempting to bribe state officials in return for concealed firearms licenses, according to Bloomberg, citing court documents and a statement from the Santa Clara DA’s office.

Apple’s Thomas Moyer, 50, was named along with Santa Clara County Undersheriff Rick Sung and Captain James Jensen in a scheme to trade CCW licenses for 200 iPads worth close to $70,000. The deal was called off after Sung and Moyer learned that the District Attorney’s office had executed a search warrant at the Sheriff’s Office, seizing all CCW license records.

In the case of four CCW licenses withheld from Apple employees, Undersheriff Sung and Cpt. Jensen managed to extract from Thomas Moyer a promise that Apple would donate iPads to the Sheriff’s Office,” reads a statement from the DA. “The promised donation of 200 iPads worth close to $70,000 was scuttled at the eleventh hour just after August 2, 2019, when Sung and Moyer learned of the search warrant that the District Attorney’s Office executed at the Sheriff’s Office seizing all its CCW license records.”

“The various fees required to obtain a CCW license generally total between $200 and $400. Under state law, it is a crime to carry a concealed firearm without a CCW license. Although state law requires that the applicant demonstrate “good cause” for the license, in addition to completing a firearms course and having good moral character, the sheriff has broad discretion in determining who should qualify,” the statement continues.

Moyer, who has been with Apple for approximately 15 years, has been the head of global security since November 2018, according to LinkedIn.

His attorney said in a statement: “Tom Moyer is innocent of the charges filed against him,” adding “He did nothing wrong and has acted with the highest integrity throughout his career. We have no doubt he will be acquitted at trial.”


  1. The whole point of “May Issue” is to give local LEO the power to decide who should be a a Citizen…
    The right to bear arms and the right to vote are the key elements of Citizenship.

  2. I’m sure that the kinds of people who sell CCW licenses (Santa Clara) or stolen rifles (Philly) would never violate their sacred trust with the populace by rigging a vote against Literally Hitler. Couldn’t happen.

    See, this is why you have to be the “bad guy”, and cull the population of ethically challenged humans when they’re young–Like, in preschool. I guarantee you that these creatures that walk like men showed obvious signs while they were young of what they’d become as adults. Once they’ve wormed their way into the system, they’re nearly impossible to eliminate.

    And, the sad fact is that an awful lot of these things are attracted into law enforcement, where they can compensate for their small male members by lording it over the rest of us. Unfortunately, the way into those careers is paved by others of their ilk who actively seek out their fellows, and ease their way in, making very sure to look the other way while they’re still learning the ropes of how to mask and blend in.

    It’s a sad fact, but an awful lot of decent cops get conned into passing these people onward and upward out of an entirely misplaced sense of “brotherhood” that’s never, ever really reciprocated. It’s amazing to talk to some of these “good guy” cops, and hear how easily they were gulled by the ferals in their midst, who told stories that the “good guy” would never in a million years accept or believe from anyone other than another cop. Once fooled, and then found out? They experience a fundamental sense of betrayal that is really hard to observe. Acquaintance of mine spiraled into a total professional meltdown, ruined his marriage, and wound up wrecking his professional career. Meanwhile, the crooked little prick that precipitated it all went on to grand and glorious sociopathic things high up in the hierarchy of the department.

    They really need to do a lot more work with evaluating people, and holding them accountable for their choices, especially in politics and police work. You wonder how men like Comey get to become FBI leadership…? This is how.
