For years, New Jersey gun owners have wondered why we keep losing our rights and have no representation against the anti-gun bigots who will stop at nothing to destroy the Second Amendment and anything related to it - including preventing legitimate gun ranges from being built. That was and still is the reason why The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) was formulated and has grown into the state's largest and most effective Second Amendment organization.
We cannot continue to remain silent about the fact that for over 9 months, Scott Bach, who is the Executive Director of the Association of NJ Rifle and Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC) and an NRA board member, was missing in action when the town of Ramsey fought tooth-and-nail to prevent a top-of-the-line gun range from being built in the town. Per the ANJRPC's mission statement: “The organization’s mission or most significant activities coordinate the interest of all rifle, pistol and shooting clubs in NJ.” (Keyword: all.)

After years of being thwarted by Governor Chris Christie's (R) veto pen, the Democrat-dominated New Jersey Legislature is chomping at the bit over the prospect of Phil Murphy (D) becoming Governor. This includes Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D), who already has 20 gun control bills lined up for Murphy to sign if and when he gets elected.Read more
As every NJ2AS member already knows, New Jersey’s astroturf gun-control activists will never skip an opportunity to harass and destroy gun owners and legitimate businesses. Their current target is a proposed shooting range in Ramsey and the fight has just begun.Read more

Shayna Lopez-Rivas’ story matters and she’s got a message that New Jersey’s anti-gun politicians and advocates need to hear.
A New Jersey native and campus carry advocate, Lopez-Rivas was raped at knifepoint on her gun-free campus at Florida State University in 2014. Since that horrific crime, Shayna has gone from anti-Second Amendment advocate to concealed carry activist that is dead serious when she says “never again."Read more
