We have two breaking news items. One, a New Jersey Superior Court has ruled that local police departments can’t add their own forms and requirements above and beyond what is required by state law in order to issue FID cards and Purchase Permits. New Jersey courts used to routinely allow departments to disregard clear legal requirements, so if this indicates a shift in the attitudes towards guns by New Jersey state courts, it’s a welcome one.
The second breaking news items it that a prime leader of the Gun Control movement in the House, Carolyn McCarthy, is retiring. If Democrats become once again convinced that gun control is a losing issue, we might be able to earn ourselves a bit of peace. The leaders of the anti-gun movement have been getting old, and they may not be replaced by folks who are as zealous about it.
