Wethersfield CT Does Right on Firearms Background Check Fees

Connecticut --(Ammoland.com)-In response to Connecticut Carry’s challenge to the State’s power to charge $50 USD for background check fees and our subsequent Demand to Cease and Desist the collection of the unlawful fees, as well as our lawsuit against Torrington and the State of Connecticut; the Town of Wethersfield has done the right thing and issued a letter to their pistol permit applicants.

The letter is given out to pistol permit applicants and informs applicants of our challenge to the fee and what applicants who refuse the fee may expect.

This is an important step in our process of removing this unlawful fee that is used as a hurdle to the rights of citizens here in Connecticut.

Connecticut Carry would like to thank Chief James Cetran and the Town of Wethersfield for issuing this letter to pistol permit applicants and for standing up against an unlawful practice when it is not popular or easy to do so. This letter shows character on Wethersfield’s side and Connecticut Carry will work with Wethersfield to make sure their efforts are not in vain.

Connecticut Carry urges other towns to make the same admissions to their applicants and to make sure that towns do not place themselves in positions of liability as agents of the state when the state is breaking the law.

Please note that pistol permit applicants who deny any town the collection of this fee could potentially be turned down by the state, but that they have not lost their right to appeal to the BFPE and that Connecticut Carry is here and prepared to assist with the appeal process whenever needed.

    1. Kind of reminds me of paying a poll tax to vote, used against the blacks years ago. Eventually the $50 fee will be $500, maybe $5,000.
