7:30 BPFE Update
Board office is moving to a new location (with new phone numbers) on Trinity Street.
Board hearings are 'civil administrative hearings' and a lot can be admitted as evidence that wouldn't be admissible during criminal court. Sealed records can be brought up if a witness from town can provide character witness. You can fight that evidence being brought into the hearing, but who has the money to do that? 3 people in the past have gotten in trouble with this. By not answering a question, the board is allowed to take that silence as an admission of guilt. (adverse inference)
Federal firearms owner restrictions should be added to the Shall-Issue document to compare with state requirements.
About the individual who lost a gun while maintaining a trail in CT park/forest: The trail was approximately 20ft away from school property. Carrying an unloaded revolver with no speedloader and trigger guards. Chief Knapp wants to reinvestigate to see whether his permit should have statutorily been revoked as opposed to just being 'unsuitable' due to the proximity of the school.
CT Pistol Permit Issues website
- To compile a new list in next week or two about 20 or so new towns.
- Went from 2007-2011 OLR reports and pulled good information from them
- Castle Doctrine summary posted
Big Problem with fingerprints
- CGS § 29-29 describes a 5 day time limit once local-issuing authority receives fingerprints.
- DPS is not being straightforward about how long. Some reports include: 4, 6, or 12 week backlog.
The BPFE is considering taking a few meetings a year solely for administrative denials to speed up the process for those denied on paperwork issues.
Currently doing two meetings a month.
If town sends you a denial, but doesn't give a reason, schedule an appeal and don't ask about it. Town are required to tell you within 10 days of hearing. If they don't tell you the reasons within 10 days of the hearing, the BPFE has been pretty consistently finding for the applicant.
