From its founding in 2010, NJ2AS enjoyed a pretty good relationship with Senator Jeff Van Drew. We were disappointed with the lack of action on any improvements to NJ's perilous gun laws, but he had promised us that as long as Senator Sweeney was Senate President they would not pass any anti-gun bills, and up to that point, he had kept his word.Read more
