And there was nothing in the law that said ISP COULDN'T require everyone to shoot 21/30 rounds inside the 7-ring of the B-27 target, either.
I would be willing to bet there will be an objection period for renewals.
To play devil's advocate for a minute, just because there is no arrest, charges or mental health admissions found from the daily checks of the ISP, doesn't mean the local law enforcement agency hasn't had any contacts or run-in's where they would want to object. There very well have been contacts, but remember.....the objections "should" only be based on if the person is a harm to themselves, or others. That definition is subject to interpretation depending on the agency and the agency must submit documentation. Either way, it's understood that once an objection is filed, the applicant is in for a rough ride.
The language in the law is clear and not open to interpretation. There's an objection period in the law for first time applicants, not for renewals. Contact with law enforcement is not a disqualifier. They need to provide proof and documentation that someone is a threat to himself or others.
I agree with you to the point that contact with law enforcement isn't an automatic disqualifier and documentation is needed, as I have clearly mentioned above. However, I haven't found in the law where it mentions an objection period would not be required for renewals.
Or that they couldn't require instructors to teach things NOT REQUIRED by JCAR for renewal classes.
ISP has a habit of making things more difficult on us poor civilians than is required. Thankfully we have people like Molly B around to keep them in line!
(No disrespect intended, Craig. I am a fan.)
