License to Carry Firearm (LTC) Revoked/Suspended

It is very difficult to overturn a police chief’s decision to suspend or revoke a license to carry a firearm. A police chief has broad discretion or considerable latitude to issue a firearms carrying license. In order to overturn a police chief’s suspension or revocation on an LTC the gun owner must prove that police chief had no reasonable ground for suspending or revoking the license. To prove this the applicant must show that the refusal to grant the license was arbitrary, capricious or an abuse of discretion.
