The state of New Jersey is at it again. A Pennsylvania woman was arrested, denied legal counsel and denied feminine hygiene products due to legal firearms locked securely in the trunk of her car after stopping to text her girlfriend. The following story is another nightmare caused by New Jersey's draconian, unconstitutional gun control regime.
Here we go again...
This Thursday, September 22, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee is set to hear 3 anti-gun bills. These bills, as you'll see below, will not do a thing to make anyone safer.
The New Jersey Senate is at it again. We're used to them proposing and, unfortunately, even passing ill-conceived anti-gun bills built off of their ignorance of firearms and firearms laws, but this time they've gone over the deep end.

A new court ruling regarding who can and cannot own a firearm may have effects on New Jersey's gun control scheme. The case came out of the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, the same circuit that New Jersey is in, which means that this ruling is now the controlling law in New Jersey.Read more

Our activism is working.
By making New Jersey's draconian and insane guns laws a central issue in local, State, and National news, Governor Christie fought back against the insane conditions New Jersey gun owners live under by conditionally vetoed A.3689 and S.816. A conditional veto is when the governor vetoes a bill sent to him by the legislature and amends it into something he is willing to sign. It is then sent back to legislature for approval. The conditions that Governor Christie put in his veto were for New Jersey to adopt shall-issue concealed carry and additionally to repeal the much derided "Smart Gun" law.
After dealing with years of life-threatening situations from violent gang members in Newark, and battling almost 3 years in New Jersey's courts for his basic constitutional and human rights, Albert Almeida has been issued his concealed carry permit.
