    Now Hartford is messing with permit applicants

    They are now telling new permit applicants that they can't submit paperwork until July 7th.

    WTF? did they not read the memo from the BFPE?

    Now to see if that is an immediate denial and if this person can just apply for a hearing.

    I'll follow up.

    How to deal with this situation

    Read the statues regarding permit applications.
    Request an application from the department of public safety
    submit the properly filled out application via certified mail.
    Immediately file and appeal with the board of firearms permit examiners.

    Keep accurate records of everthing that happens with names, dates and times.

    Ed,

    The problem with sending everything to the PD, you also need to send your checks or it's not complete either.

    I was told by the board they can go down to the PD and turn in their paperwork. If they say the same thing in person, then go straight to the board for an immediate appeal.

    If I recall, my bank checks were only good for 90 days.

    It's been awhile since we chatted, but I do want to pick your brain again.

    A Solution that may be worth the expense involved

    I am aware of the fact that Attorney Rachel M. Baird in Torrington, CT may soon be offering her law firm's legal services to anyone needing assistance in applying for a Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers in CT.

    If and when Attorney Rachel M. Baird implements this plan, I will post additional information.

    Take my word for it, things are happening behind the scenes that may change the firearm landscape in CT.

    Here is what I can say at this time:

    Many individuals will not need assistance or any explanation on the application process.

    Others may welcome this service and the fact that the issuing authority will be immediately on notice of her involvement and the fact that she will be monitoring the application process in behalf of a client.

    To have a law firm monitoring compliance with the application requirements of state law sends a very strong message to those issuing authorities/departments that seem to have their own rules.

    Obviously Attorney Rachel Baird will be charging what I consider a reasonable fee for the service's of her law firm in the Permit to Carry process.

    To highlight some of what she MAY offer, consider the following:

    1. A meeting with Attorney Baird or another firearm knowledgeable attorney associated with her firm to explain the application process, review the individual's background facts and answer questions about what must be disclosed on the application to prevent an unnecessary denial for improperly filling out same.

    2. Advice on obtaining and reviewing the client's arrest and motor vehicle histories if necessary.

    2. Notarization of the properly filled out application.

    3. A cover letter from her law office to accompany the submission of the client's permit application by certified mail to the local issuing authority explaining her involvement in monitoring the application process in her client's behalf.

    4. Checks drawn on the law firm's account to pay any permit related fees associated with the permit application.

    5. Regular monitoring to document the 5 day, one week and eight week time mandates found in State Law pertaining to the Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers application process.

    6. The preparation of an appeal letter to the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners for the client to submit.

    7. A reduced fee to represent the client at any hearing before The Board of Firearms Permit Examiners regarding the application process.

    To those who may comment on this posting:

    Many individuals may find this type of legal service unnecessary and a waste of hard earned dollars, but until ALL local issuing authorities in Connecticut come into compliance with the mandates of state law, this my be the best way to put the issuing authority on notice that we as lawful residents will not be misled, intimidated or delayed by unlawful policies and practices on the part of those who are sworn to uphold, enforce and comply with the law.

    Thanx Ed.

    Nice to have a 2A friendly attorney.

    I'm finding the BFPE will handle it differently if it's a outright refusal to take paperwork because of asking for extra information vs just saying it will take 3 months to give you an appointment.

    The excuse given was rather flimsy as well. Too many permit apps.
