RI Court say 30 days enough time to process CCW application

Postby newportri » Tue Dec 17, 2013 2:27 am

I found out today that there was a case in 2009 in Rhode Island Superior court (Gillette v Esserman) where the judge said 45 days was sufficient time to develop an application. He further stated that 30 days should be sufficient time to process an application. This is very good news to us, and I wish I had known this before....

I believe Matt didn't even apply for the permit after the ruling.

Point being?
Mosby didn't apply again in RI either (I know he lost his case), but the Supreme court said he was entitled to a permit from any city or town in RI. I view Charles as not fully following through on what he viewed as a deprivation of his rights. It might be the fault of poor counsel as most people aren't versed in the firearms act, especially noon residents. We got some good case law from the case, but if the Supreme court said that to me, I would pick the most anti town in RI and apply, when they balked I would go back before the court and request a mandamus. This thought process probably never entered his mind, but several gun rights groups backed him and I don't know if they urged him to do this or not. This is an example where communicating with gun rights groups could pay dividends.

Shame we don't have any non-residents of RI that could apply on Block Island.

Why Block Island? The chief said he would entertain any request for a permit.

A permit with a range restriction is just as valid as one without a restriction.
I assume you have a TX permit, right?
