The Attorney General of New Jersey responded to the United States Supreme Court's demand to provide a response justifying New Jersey's draconian "justifiable need" requirement. NJ responded to the Supreme Court on the last day of the deadline about why they should not strike down New Jersey's may-issue laws. So far it is a hoot. Apparently NJ doesn’t completely ban carry because police officers and military members are allowed to carry WHILE ON DUTY.
According to Attorney General Grewal the "justifiable need" standard does not violate the Constitution because government agents are allowed to carry firearms while on duty and it is hypothetically possible for someone to get a carry permit so it is ok. New Jersey has a population of 9,000,000 and issued approximately 1,200 permits in 2017. Our undercover investigations exposed that every single police department we visited turned us down when we attempted to apply for a conceal carry permit because it is only available to armed guards, judges, politicians, and their friends.
