I recently went to the board of firearms examiner's website and saw that they were scheduling into 2018, I'm wondering what the backlog is about and why they're taking so long to hear cases. I have a friend who lives in Waterbury and got his permit in the past 2 months and it took six months, and he's a military reservist. I guess filing an appeal if it's 2018 doesn't help anything? What's up with that?:cuss: there's a ton of dumb **** the cops can do to you when you open carry and get your permit taken away and having to wait till 2018 to sort it out other than a court trial, which may not help,is some serious ********, to have to deal with.
