New Jersey legislators are suing Governor Christie over New Jersey’s loosened concealed carry permit requirements. Note that Christie did not make New Jersey in any way, shape or form shall-issue. He just made it such that someone facing bonafide threats could qualify. That’s more like Maryland’s standard. It’s almost as if they don’t want the peons able to protect themselves at all! From ANJRPC:
â€œAlthough 43 states recognize the right to defend yourself with a firearm outside the home, New Jersey remains one of a handful of backward states that apparently prefer their citizens to become victims â€“ except for legislators, who themselves hypocritically enjoy the armed protection of State House security,â€ said ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach.Â â€œOnly in the Garden State do lawmakers actively block those facing serious threats from defending themselves. New Jerseyâ€™s days denying right to carry to its citizens are numbered.â€
Let’s hope they are numbered. Whether the case comes from the Third Circuit or some other, I don’t care.
