Permit to Carry/Purchase Firearm Denials
What You Need to Know About Firearm Permit Denials
Just because your local law enforcement agency has denied your permit to carry or permit to purchase application does not necessarily mean you are stuck with their decision. These denials can, and should, be appealed to a district court judge, who often offers a far more objective review of your application. The relentless and creative attorneys at The Law Office of John J. Leunig can assist you in challenging law enforcement’s denial of your permit request.
Minnesota citizens seeking to lawfully carry a firearm in public must generally apply for a permit to carry, and certain firearms purchases require a citizen to have been approved for a permit to purchase. If law enforcement denies an application request, the justifications for their decision can be challenged in district court and overturned by a judge.
In reviewing applications, there are a number of criteria that law enforcement reviews in making a decision on an application and these agencies seem to enjoy the power they wield in assessing applications. For example, law enforcement agencies frequently deem persons with prior drug convictions as unlawful users of controlled substances and deny their applications despite the fact that the conviction is often decades old and the person has not used illegal substances since. But unless this decision is vigorously objected to and challenged, it will stand. The attorneys at the Law Office of John J. Leunig can help you to expose ridiculous reasoning such as this by appealing your denial to a district court judge.
If you have been denied a permit to carry or a permit to purchase, there are generally strict deadlines within which you must appeal certain denials, so contact The Law Office of John J. Leunig as soon as possible to discuss your options. If you are a person who faces a lifetime prohibition from possessing a firearm due to a prior conviction for a crime of violence then seeking restoration of your firearms rights is likely the proper remedy to pursue.

Just a note to thank you for the wonderful representation provided to my son. I have worked in the Justice System for 30 years and have had the opportunity to watch many well-known defense attorneys in action. None of them compare with the knowledge, grace and dignity that you provided to my son which ultimately has given him a second chance at life. You are truly the Best of the Best!! Thank you never seems enough, but thank you!
Thank you so much for the incredibly competent legal counsel and personal support. Thank you so much.
Thank you for all the hard work you put into [my grandson’s] case. It cost a lot of money but saving [my grandson’s] reputation and future is far more important. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in the same situation.
I just wanted to let you know how much [my son] and I appreciated your professionalism and help with is court case. You were great to work with and are very good at what you do. We could tell that you were respected by the employees/judge at the court and we are so glad we didn’t get that other guy to help us who I had called originally.
It takes a good lawyer and supportive family – and even the worst situation can have a positive result! His life would have been very different had he not had you for his lawyer, I doubt that he would have accomplished many of the milestones he made since that time…
Thank you for your time, counsel and reassurance yesterday. I respect and admire all that you do.
I am writing this letter to express my gratitude again for your outstanding efforts to obtain the exceptional outcome on my case. I have known you for years, from my previous career in the legal field. Even though I had not worked for you directly, I was impressed and aware of your talent as an attorney. I have much admiration for your ability and command of the law, the respect you have from other attorneys and prosecutors, and how you reverentially treat and defend your clients with conviction and vigor! I truly appreciate your way of putting my mind at ease and approach of communicating the steps of action, keeping me informed in the process. Your efforts and excellent outcome on my case only confirm what I already knew, that I made the right choice in you for my attorney! I will gladly, and without hesitation, refer anyone who needs legal representation to your services! Thank you again, John.
