For too long, the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) has held their Conviction History Database over the head of many citizens who wish to obtain their pistol permit to buy, possess and carry a handgun. Buying, possessing and carrying firearms is a citizen’s right under Article 1, Section 15 of Connecticut’s Constitution. 1
Many people who have a desire to exercise their rights are too afraid to apply for the permit which asks for an arrest history under penalty of denial and under threat of perjury. Many people are unsure of the status of their arrest history and what has and hasn’t been properly erased based on the erasure statutes of Connecticut. The state and the local issuing authorities use this deficit of knowledge against applicants by denying permits based on any mistakes or omissions in the arrest history no matter how trivial or unrelated the charge may be.
With no way for an applicant to simply look up their history, the state has made a monopoly of background checks that they have also been accussed of abusively charging for.
