    ? about 29-32(b) (c) --- Firearms Board request for completion of questionnaire

    (c) Any person aggrieved by the action of an issuing authority may file with the board a clear and concise statement of the facts on which he relies for relief, and shall state the relief sought by the appellant. The receipt by the board of the appellant's statement shall initiate the appeals process, and no appeal may be rejected for mere lack of formality. The board shall, within ten days next following receipt of the appeal, set a time and place at which the appeal shall be heard. The board, while such appeal is pending, may request such additional information from the appellant and from the issuing authority as it deems reasonably necessary to conduct a fair and impartial hearing, and shall require of the issuing authority from whose decision or action the appeal is being sought a statement in writing setting forth the reasons for such failure, refusal, revocation or limitation. Failure or refusal of the issuing authority to furnish such written statement, or to supply the appellant with an application, at least ten days prior to the hearing shall be cause for the board to grant the relief sought, forthwith and without further hearing.


    It appears as if the questionnaire is not mandatory from the citizen, only from the governmental agency...therefore, their "we will dismiss" threat is bogus

    New Haven lost a bunch due to this procedure over the past half year or so.

    I have seen them make what could be lengthy hearings rather short on this basis alone.

    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.

    Yes, but the BFPE sends an complainant a letter saying that if they do not complete and return the questionnaire that they will dismiss the case ... I don't see that authority in any statue.
