Category: Site Announcements, Study Data Requests

At the recent CCDL meeting, we discussed the idea of tracking actual cases where firearms was used in self defense in CT.  This data can be very useful when writing testimony to be submitted or presented at the CT Legislative Office Building.

To that end, feel free to submit information whenever you come across firearms being used in self defense.  You can either post it in the CCDL group on facebook or submit it via email to me (Jonathan) at jonathan @ ctgunsafety.com  Just remove the spaces.

Category: Study Data Requests

I had a few submissions from instructors this week (thanx!).  One instructor surfed the web and found a bunch of town paperwork.  Interesting discovery.  Almost all of these towns that put their information on their town website, are “A” ranked towns.  Seems if you follow the law, you just may have nothing to hide.  Times like this I see why Hartford chooses to make it difficult just to get the application (which is illegal).

Towns in this update that did rather well:

Brookfield, Beacon Falls, Berlin, Derby, Essex, Glastonbury, Litchfield, Norfolk, Old Saybrook, Plainfield, Preston, Ridgefield, Shelton, Somers, Stonington and Woodstock.

Only one town, Southbury went below “B” rating.  They picked up a “C” for having a few issues on their application.  3 letters, passport photo, odd “how long a town resident” question, weird notes about DMV disqualifiers.

This also picked up a rather sad trend.  many of the towns listed above have Resident State Troopers to collect and process applications.  Seems many of these resident troopers are also asking for paperwork not required by law (like 3 letters, utility bills, etc.).  Then again, the law also does not say they can’t ask for them, so……. we need new legislation.  We need to become a shall issue state.

Thanks to everyone that submitted paperwork this round!

Three more towns added, only one has a “decent” rating (Fairfield).  Quick breakdown:

Fairfield, depending on app interpretation, asks for utility bill and/or drivers license.  Also asks for passport photo.

Granby is a hot mess.  Asking for an additional check of $70.00, identification form (they even want to know where you may be pierced or tattooed!) and three letters of reference.

Torrington, is another in a scary trend.  They are asking for an additional fingerprinting fee of $25.00.  They also want three character reference letters and openly state that the process takes 8-12 weeks (the law says eight weeks).

Until I get more…..

If you can help, the following list are towns that we need to gather for our study.

Contact me if you have any questions about how to submit the town pistol permit application paperwork.  I’m at just about all the CCDL events, meetings and they can be scanned and emailed or snail mailed.

Thanx,

Jonathan
