No retaliation from police for getting attorney
I’ve had a few people ask me this week if the police will harass them if they get an attorney to help them with their gun permits. In fact, one caller this week said that a local gun store indicated that a certain town always retaliates against an applicant when they get an attorney.
First of all, I’ve done applications in that town and have not had a problem. In fact, not one client has ever reported a problem. Second, I don’t know of any other attorney that does what I do, let alone in that town, so I doubt this rumor is true. Instead, I think this was more speculation that, after several re-tellings of the story, came to be that this always happens.
As I’ve reported before, I actually had the town counsel call me to assure me that there would be no problems with the application. If I thought this was such a bad move, I wouldn’t do it in the first place. After all, this service is to help clients avoid expensive appeals. It is not a profit venture on the part of my office.
