Shelton, CT asked in Criminal Law for Connecticut

Q: Can i keep my registered firearms in my home even after my gun license has been revoked? Also, what statue says this ?

Im being charged with failure to surrender firearms after being pulled over and finding out my gun license was revoked. Prior to being pulled over i was not informed in writing that my gun license was revoked . So during the pull over i did have my firearm in my vehicle. I called the Special Licensing & Firearms Unit and they told me that even though they revoked my license , i still can keep my firearms in my home just can not carry them because thats what the license is for. The guy told me that it is a statue saying that “ a firearm owner can keep their firearms in their home after their license had been revoked, because the license is just so you can carry it on your person.” In the end the guy told me i should not be getting charged with failure to surrender. I went to a free consultation and had to pay before getting any answers. I can not afford a lawyer right now.

A: Your question is missing a of important facts. Why not avail yourself of a free consultation with a licensed Connecticut criminal defense attorney and go over all the details of your situation so you can get the best possible outcome? It sounds to me like the best possible outcome would be if you could get your permit re-instated and them show that proof to the State's Attorney - speak to a lawyer who offers free consultations
