Minnesota Second Amendment Attorney Lynne Torgerson obtained successful result in wrongful FBI NIC’s denial of purchase of firearm. Ms. Torgerson’s client is a 43 year old man. He is gainfully employed. He does not use illegal drugs. He has never had a mental health hospitalization nor commitment. He has never been convicted of a felony, nor a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. However, in or about 18 years ago, he was CHARGED with a drug felony. However, the charge was amended to a misdemeanor before plea and sentencing, whereby he was convicted of a misdemeanor drug offense. THIS IS PUBLIC INFORMATION. In 2020, Ms. Torgerson’s went to a retailer and attempted to purchase firearm. NICs, administered by the FBI, DENIED his purchase on the grounds that he was a prohibited person. Ms. Torgerson’s client undertook an online NICs appeal; NICs, FBI, again, wrongfully denied his on line appeal. An appeal in federal district court was subsequently initiated. The NICs/FBI corrected its erroneous information. Ms. Torgerson’s client can now purchase firearms. Well done Ms. Torgerson.
