NJ Slaps Gun Owners in Face in Right to Carry Case – Again [View all]

Trenton, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Squandering an opportunity to redeem the Garden State for its long disparagement of the Second Amendment – and in particular, the right to carry – New Jersey’s newly appointed Attorney General has instead slapped gun owners in the face in the latest set of papers in a federal lawsuit brought by ANJRPC and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) to overturn New Jersey’s unconstitutional handgun carry laws.

The State’s latest filing maintains its absurd position that the Second Amendment does not exist outside the home, and that it is the State’s responsibility to protect the public from law abiding citizens with firearms.

The papers even reference the Second Amendment as a “privilege.”

Gun owners had speculated that the resignation of the former Attorney General and the recent appointment of a new one by Governor Christie might signal a change in the state’s deeply flawed policy on guns.

Instead, the State’s June 28th filing in a federal appeals court reaffirms the State’s hostility toward the right of honest citizens to defend themselves with firearms outside the home – even though the police owe no duty to protect individual citizens.

I sure am glad I live in the South.
