    Update on DeBlasi v. BFPE

    the beginning of Decembers pretrial hearing the judge came out with an offer for both sides to agree on to keep the administrative reccord in place but to allow me to introduce more evidence in the board hearing. as I found out today the board rejected the offer and based it upon.

    I have reviewed the filings in the case....I do have 1 question for the OP:

    Do you own a handgun now?

    And their answer to #s 27,28, and 29 is actually an admittance IMO ... if they thought it was a legal conclusion, they should have moved for it to be stricken, not list the answer that they listed. Its too late for them to re-respond to these complaint points to strike them anyway. IMO

    And their answer to #30 is an admittance as well concerning the legal conclusions you make.

    Same to others that they answer similarly.

    You should file a request to admit .... if you can.

    Also, how much did the transcript cost the OP?

    David, Yes I do own pistols that were legally purchased via eliegibility certificate (even prior to my BFPE hearing) my also first ever purchased gun was a beretta .40 s&w rifle when I was 19 on a 2 week wait so 5-6 years ago. As you may or may not know I am big into Steel Challenge matches and have been doing them for 2 years now as much as I can and travel all over New England and PA and even FL I just came back from a match in New Bedford mass where I placed 3rd in production class http://rodgun-nb.org/ap/results/2013..._Challenge.pdf very proud of myself. But the main issue is in two things. One is that I cannot transport my legally purchased pistols and have to rely on my father or girlfriend of 3 years to drive me, Im lucky to have them and support me but work schedules conflict and sometimes can't make a match. The 2nd biggest issue is that I have access to a steel set and a field upstate that I can use but can't drive myself to practice (thats why I only got 3rd place more practice I could do a lot better) so it puts me in a huge bind. if CT law allow me to put it in my trunk unloaded locked up I wouldn't be fighting this fight I would be happy with that but there is no middle ground its ether you have a permit or you don't. yet I can bring home a gun in my car after I buy one. the logic isn't there.
    I didn't pay anything for the transcript and the record is magically missing one of my written motions but is in the transcript so not too sure what to do about that. I would like to know more about the request to admit. and another other help or ideas you might have I need all the help I can get.
    Thanks
    -Dave

    This is one of my legal points on my current BFPE case .. its a core right IMO ... and all this "suitability" games they play should be struck down.


    If you legally own a gun they MUST issue a permit...

    I'll re-read the transcripts and the appeal & answer and shoot you a PM. Off the top of my head, I don't recall you arguing the transportation aspect of your case before the board (its something I argued zealously because I am in a worse boat than you -- I have no one to transport my handguns -- although I do keep guns stashed throughout the US).

    I guess one could file a federal case concerning the transportation issue as well w/o the need to violate the law. The latest heller decision in DC (2011) is worth a good read (little bit confusing but ruled that safety training cannot be required for a core right) as well as the ezell (sp) case from Illinois (ruled that practicing is a core right) .. so I think its a baby jump to the right to transport.
