    Hodge opposes gun-permit application

    Anyone have any information about this issue in New Fairfield? Sees like a great example of why "suitabiity" shouldn't be part of the process.

    Assuming the misdemeanors are not disqualifiers:

    Then he at least has a chance. This is going to rely on the BFPE's subjective judgment of suitability.

    He lost his case.

    He admits he made some mistakes. They were shooting at moving vehicles (made the mistake of hitting an unmarked cruiser!).

    That being said, they gave him a denial "at this time" meaning, they would look at the case in a year or two with some time between the appellant's case history. He was also a volunteer firefighter (or maybe it was EMT) and seems he is trying to make positive changes in his life.

    I think the vote in this case was unanimous. I'd have to check my notes (they are in the car).

    Rich B: My favorite argument against OC being legal in CT is "I have never seen someone OC in CT".
    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.
