    Removal of restrictions & credible threats

    I was wondering what reasons people might give to the issuing judge why they need restrictions removed from their permit. This question is aimed at those who are not in fear from anyone past or present and can find no viable reason why their life would be in danger. After speaking with the County Clerk's office on the matter, she suggested that perhaps one might travel late at night or work away from home a couple days a week. To me, these are not particularly exception circumstances but may e acceptable enough to a judge. What reasons have our forum members given in order to achieve this goal?
    I will never forget that I am an American, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

    Thank god I don't live somewhere that you have to justify your reasons for wanting to exercise a right.

    Perhaps you might be able to point out recent incidents in your area that being armed could have resulted in a different outcome.

    This is why I live in a "shall issue" state.

    Wow! Not that I take for granted living in a "shall issue" state, but when I read a post like handgunner's I have to stop and truly appreciate not having to justify my constitutional right to bear arms. Thank you Georgiacarry.org!

    Good luck HG.

    If you already have a permit, what restrictions do you have on it?

    +1 (the news section of this forum has just a taste of the examples that are out there) and what kind of time has the 911 police response time grown to with recent budget cuts.

    It's New York. His restricted permit currently only allows him to possess a handgun, not to carry it. He has to show a "need" to have it changed to an unrestricted permit (which allows both possession and carry.)

    You might be able to locate some crime stats from your neighborhood, Some news articles about recent crimes in the area, then add in the late night long distance commute from home stuff.

    You make deposits of large amounts of money..$20 is a large amount to me.

    Your a mugger and your fear arrest..OK, that one will not work

    I just read the code..sounds like it would be easier to just move...

    How about:

    1. Crime in your neighborhood.
    2. Crime on routes you take to and from work.
    3. Hours you work after dark.
    4. Crime in area where you work.
    5. To protect wife and/or children, especially children.
    6. Crime in areas where you take children to daycare.
    7. Extended response times of Law Enforcement in your area.
    8. A previous incident in your life or life of a family member instilling fear and need for protection in your heart.
    10. Over the road travel.

    Maybe some of these might help. I think all or a combination of some would be presentable to have restriction lifted. JMO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Tell the Judge to read the newspaper and listen to the news!

    Just wait. Soon you will be able to tell the judge that the gunshot wound seems like sufficient justification!!!

    What county is this? Do you have to write a letter or see the judge in person? I had to do both! In the letter I just wrote I wanted to carry for self protection since bad things happen to good people all the time and that cops, as good as they are, can't be everywhere all the time.

    When I met her in person I just said I wanted to carry to protect myself and my family.

    She said since I had a clean record she saw no reason to deny my request and removed the restrictions.
