    I've begun working on a document summarizing CT's permit process and related topics. To see the framework I have so far, check out this link:
    http://borgnis.org/Connecticut_Permi...28Draft%29.pdf

    This document is restricted to the Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers, the Eligibility Certificate, and related topics. I have plans for other documents covering assault weapons, buying/selling guns, etc.

    If you have any topics you would like covered that I have missed, please let me know. If you would like to answer one of the questions for me, please send me a PM with the answer so I can include it in the next revision. Also the title and structure have changed a number of times, so please feel free to make further suggestions on anything in the document.

    The document is 66 pages right now. 60 of the pages are the relevent state statutes, their annotations and legal citations.

    I would find it interesting if this included subject matter like suppressors, flash hiders, compensators, etc. What is legal, how it needs to be done, etc.

    The assault weapon crap has a lot of qualifications in terms of what is screwed onto the barrel and more. It would be nice to resolve a lot of this.

    That's a great idea for the assault weapons document. It doesn't really fit into the scope of this one.

    Sixty-six pages is not a summary, it's a book. Having the court citations is a nice step, but perhaps they could be shortened to the salient points with a brief synopsis?

    At the very least I wanted to have the laws on hand for research purposes. It's a lot easier to search the document I'm working on than pull up a number of different pages that contain all of the relevant laws.

    You're right though and the laws appendix probably won't stay for the final version, instead I'll just leave the link to the statutes and let readers search for themselves.

    I would rather the synopsis and brief stuff comes first with a link to the appendix later in the document where the longer text and actual law is spelled out. The appendix should then contain a link to an appropriate site so the reader can check for themselves if everything is still valid.

    Details are not bad, but keep in mind that not everyone wants them at first glance. Let the people who want deeper details read on while presenting the brief 'matter of fact' content right up front.

    That's a very good suggestion. I'll make sure the first question gets addressed in the final draft and I'll keep this in mind throughout the rest of the document.
