The King County Sheriff Office refused to issue me a CPL. I was mailed a letter of denial that falsely reported my criminal record contained a DV-assault 4 arrest and conviction 3 years ago by their department and the King County Court. That letter said that I had 10 days to provide documentation that their information was wrong or the State Department of Licensing would be notified to update their computer records to show I was prohibited from carrying a gun.
I was convicted of assault 4, NOT DV Assault 4. I mailed the order and sentence for assault 4 to the KCSO Records Manager. I spoke with the records manager who called me back several times with 'reasons' for the denial.
First, somone(from the KCSO or prosecutor) reported it as a DV to the FBI NCIC database. I said your mistake correct it, Documentation mailed as proof. I was told my file would be pulled and it would be looked into.
I was called back later and 'informed' that I was still going to be denied because Assault 4 was also a disqualifier. I let the Records Manager know that she was wrong and what RCW she needed to read and what my attorneys opinion was.
Next I was told that the Assault 4 conviction still counted because it was really DV. I should have been prosecuted for DV and would need to have been convicted of it to disqualify me of it. I reminded them of the 30 day time period to issue. It was to be looked into.
After the 30 days I was called back and told that one of their lawers said the denial stands. I informed them that this would then have to go to court. Waste the taxpayers money. Under RCW 9.41.0975 http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=9.41.0975
the taxpayers will have to pay for all of the attorneys and court resources. I think it is a crime. I know I am on somones @#$%list, but who is breaking the law?
This is a waste of my life but I have to fight it. I probably couldn't even buy a gun now if I had the money.
