NJ Suburbs Face Continued Car Theft

With laws that don’t deter car theft and a pro-criminal Attorney General, New Jersey’s suburbs are an easy and frequent target. As we’ve seen, NJ AG Matthew Platkin tends to take it easy on career criminals while vowing to prosecute law-abiding gun owners to the fullest extend of the law.

NJ Backsteps After Issuing Nation’s Largest Gun Ban

Last summer, weeks prior to the Bruen ruling, New Jersey Governor Philth Murphy signed numerous gun control laws. One of those laws banned commonly and legally owned firearms without serial numbers, such as homemade guns. Since NJ also considers BB/pellet guns as firearms, it even would’ve banned those too. The NJ AG issued guidance to law enforcement at the 11th hour not to apply the law to BB guns and also clarified some other points.

New Jersey Attorney General Snubs Question on Forthcoming PTC Process

Just about every gun owner in New Jersey, by now at least, has a pretty good idea that NJ Attorney General Matthew Platkin doesn’t give a damn about any of our rights. He takes to Twitter on an almost daily basis to remind us that we must never cease fighting for our rights. Most recently, he Tweeted about how he’s “tired” of hearing from the public about “what’s good for public safety.” We don’t think he knows much about public safety OR civil rights.

A Year Since Bruen… What’s Changed?

It’s been one hell of a year since the US Supreme Court’s historic ruling in the case of NYSRPA v. Bruen. We now have 50-state shall-issue concealed carry and unconstitutional gun control laws are falling left and right. However, the left is relentless and they’ve been keeping us on our toes. They’ve also been keeping the court system packed with 2A cases. But post-Bruen, that’s a good thing, isn’t it?

3rd Circuit Decision Reinstates Most of Carry-Killer Law

In a disappointing, but not entirely unexpected, given who the judges are, decision, the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued a partial stay against Judge Bumb’s recent preliminary injunction in the now-consolidated cases of Koons v. Platkin and Siegel v. Platkin. These cases challenge just about every aspect of New Jersey’s carry killer law that makes most of the Garden State off limits to civilian concealed carry.

Second Amendment Purist Running For Englishtown Mayor

In New Jersey, it’s difficult to find a political candidate that is honest and unforgiving in their beliefs. Most compromise away their values in our corrupt pay-to-play system. Daniel Francisco, President of Blue Star Union, named defendant in FPC case Francisco v. Cooke, and well-known 2nd Amendment advocate, is running to become mayor of Englishtown, NJ. In small town politics, the primary vote is almost always the decisive vote as to what the outcome will be in November. Get out and VOTE!

If Only I Had A NJ Legislator In The Car With Me Today

Today, I had a situation that might not sound scary while reading about it from a distance. However, there and in the moment, it was truly scary and I was happy to have my defensive firearm with me. I truly believe that if one of NJ’s anti-gun legislators were in the car with me today, they’d understand exactly why our 2nd Amendment rights are so important.

The 2nd Amendment Really Is For Everyone

I had heard of, but never attended, one of Tony Simon’s 2A4E Diversity Shoots before. I’m sorry I didn’t. I attended the most recent one, in Monroe, NJ, and I had one of the most memorable and enjoyable times at a shooting range that I can recall. People from all walks of life were in attendance. It shattered general assumptions of mine. Everyone had a great time, we laughed alot, and I recommend everyone attend at least once. This effort is worthy of our support!

Analysis of Judge Bumb’s Opinion That Put NJ Carry Killer Law On Hold

Judge Bumb went to great lengths to write a well-thought opinion in the matter of a preliminary injunction against New Jersey’s so-called carry killer law which invalidates public carry of firearms in the vast majority of the state. As she pointed out, the legislators who got the bill passed, as well as the state attorneys that are currently defending the new law, have not done any research and have nothing to support their claims of constitutionality.

When Do You Not Buy Local?

Its no secret that you can buy your ammo cheaper online and have it delivered right to your doorstep. However, in a state like New Jersey, where the local gun shops and ranges are under constant attack by the democrat supermajority in Trenton, its extra important to support those who support you. That means: buy local. But how much it too much?
