"You can't find any attorney to handle this situation pro bono or for a nominal fee?"
Pro bono? No.
Nominal fee? Unfortunately we are talking about few thousand dollars with respect to legal fees, which may in fact be a nominal fee when you're talking about legal fees.
But given the current economic situation (I work for a medium size company that has had four rounds of layoffs in the last six months, across the board compensation cuts and mandatory one week furloughs for everyone) and in spite of how important this is to me (my wife doesn't share the sentiment) paying my mortgage, utilities, etc., etc., etc. have to be the priority...at least my wife thinks so ;).
Ideologically and based on principle this bugs me to no end but realistically getting involved in a legal battle, given the "privileges" the license affords you if you're living in Suffolk County, the likelihood that my situation will change shortly (daughter and grandkids moving out of state within the next year or so), the current economic situation and given what it would mean as far as changing the situation regarding the 2nd amendment here on Long Island (nothing), I can't justify the expensive involved in putting up that kind of fight.
I haven't lost my fighting spirit but I'm trying to exercise some wisdom on the when, where and under what circumstances I do the fighting. Either that or I'm just getting old.
