    Attorney Hwang's case has been dismissed.

    No surprise here. The New Haven police department and the mayor should be very embarrassed.

    Well said, Mr. Hwang!

    "When baseless breach of peace and interfering charges are brought against people that have a right to carry, it really threatens our constitutional right to bear arms," Hwang said in August.

    *Freedom subject to change depending on jurisdiction and availability. Some freedoms may not be available due to local political expedience or prevailing political correctness. Please check Federal, State, County, City, or any other special district for applicable laws governing the extents of freedoms prior to purchase.

    hopefully the publicity of this case actually helps those of us who are legal to carry in CT, more or less shedding light to the CT population which is uneducated in this topic (which is probably 75%+)

    Attorney Hwang's case has been dismissed.

    Well, now comes the case before the Board. The suitability issue may be the thing that gets his permit pulled. The city opted not to charge because of his impeccable record, the police charges were dropped, yet the NHPD may recommend to pull it because of suitability. How does a man publicly quoted as being of good character then be deemed unsuitable? Do I smell a court case here?

    They are not likely to recommend it be pulled (I am not aware of it being pulled so far) since the only 'evidence' they could use will be destroyed when the records are erased.

    If they do decide to revoke it, the BFPE will overturn it without a problem and New Haven will have another embarrassing loss.

    My point exactly.

    They dismissed the case against him ... not "opted not to charge" he was charged and went to several pre-trial hearings. I think the defendant filed a motion to dismiss and the city just dismissed the case w/o a hearing on the motion to dismiss (that they knew they were doomed).

    I wonder if the defendant is going to argue against the dismissal? If it was w/o prejudice I would.

    Yup, no surprise. Distefano opened his liberal mouth and inserted his liberal foot. That I don't mind, it's my fellow LEOs that still don't know or refuse accept our own firearm's laws and a person's right to bear arms in CT that bothers me. I hope this opens their eyes.

    Each of the arrests and subsequent slap downs of the LEOs involved has helped. This one was pretty public, so lets hope it is the end of the stupidity that is out there.
