That would put us around Friday, October 4th to hear back?

What is the next step in this case?

The First Circuit told Alfred Morin he couldn't challenge his license prohibition because he didn't apply for the 'right' combination of licenses. Well, now he can. He got the FID, the PTP was denied, and the NPD Chief gets sued again - Morin v. Lyver.
The page needs to be updated, all it mentions is "07/18/2018 -- Complaint".


Just got out of the hearing. Now we wait. The last time around the decision took 33 days.

Down the rabbit hole, somewhere in Paradise.
How is he a PP?
If the POTENTIAL sentence was more than one year in jail, regardless of what he actually served, he is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms. Ask legendary UDT/SEAL Commander Richard Marcinko. He got 21 months federal and served 15. This after a heroic 30 plus years of Navy service as an officer. No sitting POTUS had the guts to pardon him. If this could happen to a decorated SPECOPS warrior like him, what do the rest of us peons have to look forward to?

Dr. Morin is not disqualified under federal law. He's disqualified under state law. This suit challenges the state law that disqualifies him.

MGL Chapter 140 said:
A prohibited person shall be a person who:
.
.
(ii) has, in any other state or federal jurisdiction, been convicted or adjudicated a youthful offender or delinquent child for the commission of ... (D) a violation of any law regulating the use, possession, ownership, transfer, purchase, sale, lease, rental, receipt or transportation of weapons or ammunition for which a term of imprisonment may be imposed

Incorrect.

It must be:
1. Classified as a felony by the state in which it occurred or by the feds for a federal offense. [it may be that anything > 1 year at the federal level is a felony, not sure there]
or
2. Be punished by a potential sentence in excess of 2 years (corrected)

or be a crime of actual or threatened domestic violence or, for the state of MA, involve firearms or ammo and be punishable by jail or prison time.

see 18 USC 922(g) for detials

While common, the definition of ">1year:==felony" is not universal.

Interesting side note, a felony prevents you from owning a gun, however, it does not prevent you from being an elected congress critter.

How could he not know about DC's oppresive gun laws?
Part of the argument was that the Commonwealth submitted a 90 page report prepared by the Government Accountability Office titled "States’ Laws and Requirements for Concealed Carry Permits Vary across the Nation" ( link here https://www.gao.gov/assets/600/592552.pdf ) . Obviously the Plaintiff did not the resources available to commission such study before he drove to D.C.
