Would I be able to get my permit
« on: March 25, 2020, 06:24:24 PM »
Hello All,

I am going to be applying for my CT gun permit and I am hoping if someone can answer my question.  In 2007 I was arrested and charged with POSS CNTRLD SBSTNC/<4 OZ MRHNA (STATUTE: 21A-279(C).  Which I found is a disqualifying charge.  This is the only time I was ever in trouble.  My question is does the state look at applicants on an individual case by case basis?  Also, does anyone else know anyone who has gotten their permit with a worst record? I am asking this because I am trying to decide if it is even worth me applying at this time.  Any advice will help

Thank you,
-Will

Big question is how long ago? You will apply, be denied and then appeal. If it has been a few years, and you have stayed out of trouble you should be good to go!

 I wouldn't count on good to go. Probably need pardon.

Disqualifying convictions:
https://www.cga.ct.gov/2010/rpt/2010-R-0156.htm
https://www.cga.ct.gov/current/pub/chap_529.htm#sec_29-29

Most are for violent crimes and/or firearm-related (misdemeanors or felonies).

EDIT: I found this line and it's confusing.
Specifically:

"Disqualifying misdemeanors are:
...
11. first offense involving possession of (a) controlled or hallucinogenic substances (other than a narcotic substance or marijuana) or (b) less than four ounces of a cannabis-type substance (CGS § 21a-279(c))."

Couldn't find a link to the current document, here's a screenshot:
Misdemeanor possession is on there, so it appears the convictions does disqualify you.

From my reading of 21A-279(C) a first-time offense doesn't sound like a misdemeaner.

Not anymore but it used to be. Hopefully that means it is old enough to be overcome on appeal for those willing to put in the time.

There is a  Pro Gun Lawyers and Legal Assistance subforum:

Where there is a specific thread for lawyers:

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.
