NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - The commissioner of the state’s Public Safety Department has sued the state Board of Firearms Permit Examiners and a Derby man appealing the return of the man’s pistol permit.

Scott Lazurek was a security guard whose permit was revoked by West Haven police in June 2013 when he refused to show his permit.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/YYz3QF ) that a charge of interfering with a police officer was dismissed in July 2013. The prosecutor said Lazurek “was just stubborn.”

The state firearms permit examiners reinstated Lazurek’s permit, saying he was a “suitable person.”

The state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection filed suit in September to appeal the reinstatement, saying the permit examiner’s decision was inconsistent with precedent and law.

Lazurek says he’s looking forward to having the state explain what he did wrong.
