    The Town of Windsor does the right thing regarding background check fees

    Courage in face of the state is not always easy

    Connecticut, 8/2/2012:

    In response to Connecticut Carry’s challenge to the State’s power to charge $50 USD for background check fees and our subsequent Demand to Cease and Desist the collection of the unlawful fees; the Town of Windsor has done the right thing and issued a letter to their pistol permit applicants. The letter is given out to pistol permit applicants and informs applicants of our challenge to the fee and what applicants who refuse the fee may expect.
    This is an important step in our process of removing this unlawful fee that is used as a hurdle to the rights of citizens here in Connecticut.
    Connecticut Carry would like to thank the Town of Windsor for issuing this letter to pistol permit applicants and for standing up against an unlawful practice when it is not popular or easy to do so. This letter shows character on Windsor’s side and Connecticut Carry will work with Windsor to make sure their efforts are not in vain.
    Connecticut Carry urges other towns to make the same admissions to their applicants and to make sure that towns do not place themselves in positions of liability as agents of the state when the state is breaking the law.
    Please note that pistol permit applicants who deny any town the collection of this fee could potentially be turned down by the state, but that they have not lost their right to appeal to the BFPE and that Connecticut Carry is here and prepared to assist with the appeal process whenever needed.

    This is the 50 dollar fee you pay for a state background check.
