2A Rally
Hoffman's allowing us to host a table at their store for the two weekends before the rally to hand out flyers. April 14th, 15th, 21st, and 22nd. Open 9-6 Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday. Need volunteers for Saturday the 21st.

7:43 PM 4/10/2012
Board of Firearms Permit Examiners
Had first "Denials Day" hearing. Denials are typically quick hearings because most of the time it's usually a poor denial reason. Excessive speeding tickets, stealing a pack of batteries from many years ago, etc. Towns are holding out with denials until just before the hearing and then granting the permits.
The board is only required to meet every 90 days. They're currently doing 2 hearings a month. All members are unpaid volunteers.
We lost Art Carr who was a friend to permit holders. He passed away last month.
Two cases that are interesting. Seems to be a lot of cases regarding restraining orders. Temporary Restraining Orders expire on their own. Some people are forgetting they had an expired restraining order and fail to put those on their applications. Towns are then denying for lying on their application.

Open Floor
How do we change the ordinance in New Britain? Jonathan H. has mixed feelings because it's a gateway to pre-emption.
New London: Town is not enforcing the ordinance, and views a valid Permit to Carry as authorization to carry within the town. Town is in the process of reviewing the ordinance.
Don't forget to email your state rep in support of H.B. 5245.

8:30 PM 4/10/2012
