Gun Trafficking in New Jersey

Thanks to reader Chuck, who sent me this while I was in Virginia, and I am not just getting around to posting, we have a look into the world of black market gun trafficking in New Jersey:

Milgram said Kinston, who was out on parole on an eluding conviction, managed to lead hundreds of gang members across the state despite being monitored with a locator bracelet as a condition of his prison release in January.

However, on Aug. 16, state police with the help of 16 different law enforcement agencies learned that a shipment of stolen handguns would be arriving from North Carolina at Kinston’s residence in Burlington City, Milgram said.

So the guy was out on parole, had a locator bracelet on, and yet somehow was managing to run an elaborate gun and drug trafficking network.  Would Bryan Miller care to come on here to describe how exactly other states are to blame for the fact that New Jersey can’t keep its violent gang members in prison where they belong?  It’s a simple equation.  Gang members who are in prison have a harder time running a black market gun business.  But somehow the gun control crowd thinks trying their failed policies everywhere else is the answer.

  1. Wasn’t it just last February when a bunch of prosecutors and police chiefs from South Jersey had a big press conference in Camden, all so that they could point a finger of blame at Pennsylvania for the gun crimes in their own jurisdictions? From what I can recall of this time, not a word was said about their own lenient judges, criminal courts, and parole system. I don’t recall hearing anything from this group about the thousands upon thousands of known and suspected gang members who live and operate in New Jersey, either. The whole thing seemed to me like nothing but a big pity-party/whine-fest.

  2. About a month ago, there was an entry right here in this blog all about some other stolen gun dealers getting arrested in New Jersey by the feds.

    Despite the apparent reality of how criminals in New Jersey are obtaining guns in bulk, that is, by stealing them, and then selling them to other criminals, Bryan Miller and New Jersey’s anti-gun-rights legislators are still all chomping at the bit to get a “one-gun-a-month” bill on Governor Corzine’s desk by the end of this year. Later on, after more of the same occurs with New Jersey’s violent criminals and their stolen guns, Bryan Miller and his cohorts in Trenton will then likely find a new tack for more of what they refer to as “reasonable restrictions” and “sensible laws” on legal gun ownership.

  3. I heard Cam Edwards mention this story during his “Cam & Company” show on Sirius Patriot Radio. He remarked that nobody in the New Jersey state assembly will likely mention this story when they begin talking about the proposed “one gun a month” law. Unfortunately, I would have to say that he’s probably right on this call.
