I had no problem writing a letter (I can post what I wrote here, if you are interested) but the concept of having to do it galls me.
I was lucky, my Chief of Police was very professional and businesslike about it, but...what if you get one that has a hair across his butt about whatever? Maybe he is a lib, maybe he had a bad day, whatever.
Remember the case in the Supreme Court about the guy who made the Hillary Clinton movie (Citizens United v. FEC, I think) and ran afoul of some kind of election law? What I remember most about that was some POS liberal Assistant Attorney General or some other flunky (might have even been now Supreme Court Justice Kagan!) being asked about censorship, and whether or not, given the current laws, could someone be found guilty of something and be sent to jail, and the government flunky said something to the effect of: “Well, they could, but...we wouldn’t prosecute something like that.” (paraphrase) and Justice Scalia leaned over the bench and said something to the effect of “We don’t leave our fates in the hands of bureaucrats to decide what to prosecute and what not to” or something to that effect. (I can’t find the actual exchange, darn it.)
Anyway, that is what we have here. A bureaucrat deciding what rights you will and won’t have.
‘Anyway, that is what we have here. A bureaucrat deciding what rights you will and wonât have.’
Thats correct and its by design. MA is MAY issue which gives complete discretion to the issuer.
