Minnesota Second Amendment Attorney Lynne Torgerson wins appeal from denial of a permit to purchase in Carver County
Minnesota Gun Rights Attorney Lynne Torgerson won an appeal from a denial of a permit to purchase in Carver County. A number of years earlier, Ms. Torgerson’s client had been convicted of a felony crime, but it was not a felony crime of violence. Minnesota law provides that defendants convicted of felonies which are not crimes of violence get their gun rights back automatically upon discharge from probation, along with their rights to vote, hold office, etc. Thus, her client was legal to own possess, and purchase firearms. Notwithstanding, after discharge from probation, upon application for a permit to purchase, Ms. Torgerson’s client’s application was denied. Upon appeal, Ms. Torgerson’s client was granted a permit to purchase. Well done Ms. Torgerson.
