WTF is this, huh? The board already said he is SUITABLE .. "of the current suitability"
Section of BFPE ruling :
It is the order of the Board to reinstate Mr. Pennells pistol permit in one year, on May 9, 2014, on the condition of the current suitability and that he hasn’t committed any offence that violates the criminal law and doesn’t have any statutory disqualifying events and at that time he presents his letter from his neurologist stating that he is seizure free.
If anything, the board was wrong not to issue the permit immediately...they bent over backwards for DESPP IMO.
And these "deals"... its the state taking advantage of its position. A most dishonorable thing to do. But DESPP is not an honorable organization. Either is the AG's office.
Pennell should file an answer and counterclaim ... counterclaim to include:
1) striking the need for a delay in the permit being issued and any further requirements needed for the permit
2) argue that he has his gun, has a right to practice, so that's all "suitability" requires now (after various federal court cases detailing these rights) because one needs a permit to go to a gun range. Nothing in the board's ruling has a finding that he cannot own.
If some DESPP employee came up to me with this type of "deal" I would shove my foot so far up his bum that they would not be able to sit for years.
And O'Neill? He's a POS ... he called me a "monster" at the last FOIA hearing I was at, seeking records of firearms of a town (what's new?), because he argued that the Newton Sandy Hooking shooting demonstrates that the records should not be disclosed but when I argued that the release of the information (because the shooter did not know the firearms the town had) may actually have prevented the event due to a deterrence affect. He got all prissy and whinny upon that argument ~ his only response was "you're a monster". Yeah, nice argument ya POS. He is nothing but a liar.
Jepsen? He's a POS too ...
