Hello everyone ! need a little help!
It will be 2 years this july since i purchased my handgun in order to complete the application process. I am located in orange county ny. Since the purchase in july 09' i waited almost another whole year (april 2010) to meet the judge. I meet him in court and he was not impressed. When i was 18 i got a arressted a few times for drinking and going to bars and stupid stuff. After that age i was on very good behavior however i made a very big mistake and decided to drink and drive at the age of 24. I am now 28 and since have no had any issues with the law. I am partner in a very successful business, engaged, and a homeowner. I explained to the judge i was young and dumb and things are very different these days. (GROWING UP) Anyway i have called once a month since meeting the judge in april 2010. Every time the secretary gave me the same answer that the judge "hasn't had time to get to it" . i also asked if i was waiting because of my character background and she says no he just hasn't gotten to it. I feel that they are keeping me in limbo purposely and at this point even a denial would be some closure and i would just reapply. I contacted a lawyer and he wants me to write a letter to a judge appointed ahead of this one (his boss) but i feel that will just piss him off and def deny me. I decided to write a letter this weekend but i was hoping to get some suggestions or tips from some of you good people out there. I want to tread a fine line between asking what the deal is and not pissing him off. Any suggestions or advice would be really helpful guys. thankyou very muchm n
