    East Hartford - Application pending 10 weeks today, not decision, no communication.

    Hello all, my first post here. The wife and I have applications pending with the Peoples Republic of East Hartford. It has been exactly 10 weeks today with no approval or denial. I called at 8 weeks, was told various people were, "on vacation" it was on Supervisors desk. They never called through week 9 as they said they would, no communication regarding delay at all. On week 10 to the day, I called again, was told people just got back from vacation and things were, "busy" and it was still, "on Supervisor's desk." I asked should I wait another week, and was told, "at least." In my past I was no angel and was arrested several times. In July of 2008 I was granted a full, unconditional Pardon and my record was expunged. My wife, squeaky clean. I called Board of Firearms Examiners and asked for their opinion. I spoke with a wonderful, cheerful woman and explained everything. She says the FBI doesn't erase ANYTHING regarding my Pardoned crimes and that is probably why they are holding things up. She suggested I wait until the 12th week and file an appeal. I can expect a hearing in 10 months! I am at a loss....they violate Statutes, I get to wait 10 months! With no kids in the schools....we've paid this Town $30,000 over the last 10 years in property taxes and we can't even get a response!

    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    Woohoo! Nearly blew out my knee jumping for joy!!!!

    Got the call from East Hartford Police today!!! We've been approved. I am sure my "shady" Pardoned past plus I kinda sorta believe maybe, people were truly on vacation pushed this to 10 weeks and 1 day! In the end all is well....expect one thing....I am going to spend a lot of $$$!!!! This is more than a right to me, it's almost a privilege. I feel a great sense of redemption and moving on from past mistakes!

    And there is the problem with the process. It was always a right and should never have been a privilege.

    I meant it personally, having been arrested in the past....getting pardoned....taking the LONG way. It just feels good.

    I understand. I just have a problem with infringing upon a right of a citizen, which you are. You piad your debt to society for whatever happened. That is enough. No more questions need to be answered.
