Why Shayna Matters: From Rape Survivor to Concealed Carry Activist

Screen_Shot_2017-07-26_at_1.00.06_PM.png


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."

Supreme Court Denies Review of Concealed Carry Case.

scotus.jpg


 

Today the Supreme Court declined to hear the Peruta case. The Peruta case was about whether or not states could require citizens to show "good reason" to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms, like New Jersey does. Their refusal to hear the case does not mean that they agree with the lower court's ruling on the issue, but it does mean that for now we're stuck waiting for the Supreme Court to once and for all declare what we already know; that we have a constitutional right to carry firearms for self-defense.

Screen_Shot_2017-05-23_at_10.05.03_PM.png


 

Until now, the New Jersey Second Amendment Society has not taken a position on the state’s new bail reform system. Though, after reviewing changes proposed by some of New Jersey’s worst anti-gun legislators, it’s clear our organization and other concerned civil liberty advocates must mobilize.

Freedom itself is at stake, literally.

A week and a half ago NJ2AS informed you of our court victory which got the State of New Jersey to admit in court that its ban on taser and stun guns was an unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution that recognizes our right to keep and bear arms.

Supreme Court Reschedules Concealed Carry Case. Again...

scotus.jpg


 UPDATE: 4/24/2017 - 2:30 PM


It appears we missed something. Today's order list indicated that Justice Gorsuch did not participate in many of the cases again. Though he did participate in some. This could mean, as we indicated in the article, that Justice Gorsuch has still not read the Peruta case in his attempts to catch up with the rest of the court, which could be why it continues to be rescheduled.


 

For the past two weeks NJ2AS has been watching a case that the US Supreme Court could take up that could restore our concealed carry rights here in NJ. Today we were expecting news about whether or not the court would take the case, however, it appears that in the last minute before the conference, the case was rescheduled to another conference. Again. The good news is that the court is still considering the case, however we are concerned about the serial rescheduling.
