Connecticut agencies battle over whether man who refused to show gun permit should have one

Thirteen months later, the State Board of Firearms Permit Examiners reinstated Lazurek’s gun permit, saying it found him to be a “suitable person.” 

However, the state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection has intervened, filing an appeal over the permit being returned.

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League, a pro-gun rights group which Lazurek belongs to, now says it is trying to raise money to help him fight the “unprecedented” move. The group claims no direct involvement in the case but argues its importance “should be obvious” to gun owners across the state.

FK – It’s obvious no free person should have to request ‘permission’ or a ‘license’ to exercise the most basic right any creature possesses, the right to fight back.
