So, if the board is that concerned with the volume of their work, perhaps they should fast track the appeals process to send a message to MSP. So long as the appellant is not a convicted felon and has complied with all the conditions the board considers G&S reasons for a permit (ie. granted in the past), it should be an automatic pass. Issue the permit and let MSP contest it.

Just an off the wall thought. Though, I imagine the board would not want to take that risk due to the chance of a bad one slipping through.

No one would want to look or sound this ridiculous unless they were left floundering to continue an unnecessary tradition.

That leaves two possibilities. Superintendent Pollazzi believes in unnecessary infringements on the right of vetted and law abiding citizens, that thanks to the MGA put those same citizens at risk of criminal penalties. Or Pollazzi is afraid to exercise his authority (not to issue restrictions) for fear of the anti back lash, and prefers to let the "citizen" Board rectify the individual risk on a case by case basis for anyone with the fortitude to navigate the appeal process. One thing is clear. Despite all statements to the contrary the MSP continues to pump out restricted permits clogging the Board's docket, and yet MSP has yet to petition a single Board modification (to unrestricted) for judicial review. It's tough to reconcile those facts without looking to pure politics as the answer.
Well said.
