    After reading Ed's post about appealing the Waterbury PD delay tactics to the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners, I thought a generic form would be helpful to anyone wishing to appeal a long delay in their application.

    http://borgnis.org/Sample_Appeal_to_BFPE.pdf

    Fill out the blanks, sign it, and mail it in to the BFPE. Simple.

    Looks good! I wonder if it would help or hurt your case to CC the issuing authority that has thus far delayed your application (or rather denied your due process) as well.

    I think what he means is:

    File a Writ of Mandamus with the court forcing them to comply with the law.

    From an on-line dictionary:





    Noun
    1.
    writ of mandamus - an extraordinary writ commanding an official to perform a ministerial act that the law recognizes as an absolute duty and not a matter for the official's discretion; used only when all other judicial remedies fail
    mandamus
    judicial writ, writ - (law) a legal document issued by a court or judicial officer

    law, jurisprudence - the collection of rules imposed by authority; "civilization presupposes respect for the law"; "the great problem for jurisprudence to allow freedom while enforcing order"
