New Jersey Sportsmen Get Representation in Trenton

It looks like a few lawmakers have decided it’s still okay to publicly support hunters in Trenton.

New Jersey’s nearly 1,000,000 anglers, hunters and trappers are claiming a historic day. They are referring to the creation and first official meeting of the New Jersey Angling and Hunting Conservation Caucus (NJAHCC), a bipartisan assembly of political leaders and recreational outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen dedicated to advancing the state’s conservation interests.

The NJAHCC was initiated and organized by Senator Stephen M. Sweeney (Democratic Majority Leader) at the suggestion, and with the cooperation, of the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance. The Caucus is comprised of a total of 26 senators and assemblypersons.

Hopefully these lawmakers will also vote the right way on gun issues.  I haven’t looked up their grades or voting records yet.  If they aren’t gun-friendly yet, this is one way gun owners can approach them.

Unfortunately, gun owners in New Jersey have a long way to go because 26 lawmakers in both chambers isn’t very many when there are 120 legislators in total.
