This is what a Red Flag law looks like!

These are the two laws in NJ that are leading the other States and the Federal Government. This is what a Red Flag law looks like! NO due process and a direct violation of the 5th and 14th Amendment!  "The Constitution states only one command twice. The Fifth Amendment says to the federal government that no one shall be "deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law." The Fourteenth Amendment, ratified in 1868, uses the same eleven words, called the Due Process Clause, to describe a legal obligation of all states. These words have as their central promise an assurance that all levels of American government must operate within the law ("legality") and provide fair procedures. Most of this essay concerns that promise. We should briefly note, however, three other uses that these words have had in American constitutional law". If someone is offended by you or a social media post, you can be Red Flagged! George Orwell’s book 1984, now available in non fiction! Here is the outline of the laws. Please beware! A1181, which allows mental health practitioners and law enforcement officials to keep firearms away from mental health and therapy patients who seek to harm themselves or others. The bill amends current law to require that licensed mental health practitioners exercise their duty to warn and protect by alerting law enforcement if a patient has threatened to and intends to commit imminent, serious physical violence against themselves or others.  If law enforcement determines that the patient is incapable under statute of possessing a firearm, then any firearm ID card or purchasing or carrying permit is voided and subject to revocation by the Superior Court.

Sue and I were Anthony Colandro’s guests yesterday

kniferights Sue and I were Anthony Colandro's guests yesterday on @gunforhire radio. We talked about Knife Rights' founding, our 9-year battle and victory in NY, a bunch of other interesting topics and had a great time! Then we spent some time in Anthony's incredible Gun For Hire range shooting a variety of cool guns including the .50 AE Desert Eagle and Barrett .50 BMG! We literally had a BLAST! Incredible range, incredibly good people and one of the nation's staunchest 2A and Knife Rights supporters behind enemy lines in NJ. If you are ever in the NYC metro area, it's well worth a visit. Check out the link in @gunforhire BIO.

‘This Does Nothing To Make New Jersey Safer’: Gov. Murphy Beefs Up State’s Already Strict Gun Laws – CBS Philly

Click here to watch the video BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. (CBS/AP) — Gov. Phil Murphy signed a measure into law Tuesday aimed at making so-called smart guns available in New Jersey. The guns can only be fired by one designated user. “The scourge of gun violence is a pervasive problem that affects our entire nation,” Murphy said. “I am proud to work with our legislators to implement some of the toughest gun laws in the country to protect our residents and make our communities safer for all. We see the results of our work by having among the lowest rates of gun-related deaths nationwide.” New Jersey Man’s Lawsuit Against TGI Friday’s After Being ‘Shocked’ Beer Cost More Than $5 Can Proceed, Court Rules The move made New Jersey’s strict gun laws even tougher, and Anthony Colandro is none too happy about it. “It does nothing to make New Jersey safer, there is not going to be one criminal that reads the headlines tomorrow and say, ‘Oh, it’s going to be harder for us to commit a crime,’” said Colandro, who owns a shooting range in New Jersey. Colandro believes the new laws actually hurt legal gun owners and violate the Second Amendment. The new measure requires that retailers carry and sell at least one smart gun. Surveillance Video Captures Man Breaking Into Roxborough Home, Sleeping Over While Homeowner Is At Jersey Shore Murphy also signed three other measures aimed at stopping gun violence. One bill requires that the attorney general and health commissioner come up with a suicide prevention and training course for gun sellers. Another bill restricts people convicted of serious crimes from buying firearms, as well as barring the sale of guns without a [...]

GOV. MURPHY ANTI-GUN “ROUNDTABLE” REVEALS MORE OF LEGISLATIVE AGENDA

GOV. MURPHY ANTI-GUN "ROUNDTABLE" REVEALS MORE OF LEGISLATIVE AGENDA   February 26, 2019. Today, Governor Murphy held his second anti-gun "roundtable" in the State House, revealing more of Trenton's upcoming agenda on guns. "How can they call it a 'roundtable" when there was no one there to speak for NJ's one million law-abiding gun owners," asked ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach. "They always talk about wanting a 'conversation' about gun issues -- this was more like a monologue. They need to focus on severely punishing violent gun criminals instead of targeting tools needed by honest citizens to defend themselves." Claiming "our work is not done" and wearing a large red "F" pin on his lapel to commemorate the "F" grade he received from NRA, Governor Murphy declared as a goal for NJ to have the strongest "gun safety" laws in the U.S. During the meeting, more of the upcoming legislative agenda on guns was revealed, and it included: - A new "smart gun" initiative (replacing the failed 2002 smart gun law) - Requiring ammunition sellers to electronically record every ammunition sale (falsely assumes criminals obtain their ammunition from licensed sellers) - Mandating state-issued credentials to purchase ammunition  (falsely assumes criminals obtain ammunition from legal sources) - Expiration date on firearms purchase credentials (falsely assumes criminals purchase firearms using NJ credentials) - Mandatory state-issued license for inheritance of firearms - Passage of redundant laws punishing various firearms crimes already prohibited. Please get ready to do your part as anti-gun attacks ramp up in Trenton in the coming weeks and months.

U.S. SUPREME COURT REQUIRES NJ TO FILE RESPONSE IN ANJRPC RIGHT TO CARRY APPEAL

U.S. SUPREME COURT REQUIRES NJ TO FILE RESPONSE IN ANJRPC RIGHT TO CARRY APPEAL High Court Considers Taking ANJRPC Appeal February 19, 2019.  Today, the U.S. Supreme Court required the State of New Jersey to file a brief in response to ANJRPC's petition asking the High Court to hear its challenge to NJ's carry laws. Under the Supreme Court's order, the State of New Jersey is required to file papers by March 21, arguing why the High Court should not agree to hear ANJRPC's appeal.  NJ had previously ignored the appeal. While the move is not a guarantee that the Supreme Court will agree to hear the appeal, the fact that the court is requiring NJ to take a position on ANJRPC's request is significant, and signals that the court is not willing to take any action without first hearing from both sides. By late April or early May, it is likely we will know whether the High Court will agree to take the case, decline to take the case, or hold the case while awaiting the outcome of a pending challenge to NYC's firearm laws.

IMPORTANT UPDATES ON ANJRPC LAWSUITS: RIGHT TO CARRY & MAGAZINE BAN CASES

IMPORTANT UPDATES ON ANJRPC LAWSUITS: RIGHT TO CARRY & MAGAZINE BAN CASES By Daniel Schmutter, Esq. Right to Carry Case Update ANJRPC’S challenge to NJ’s unconstitutional carry laws is one of the next in line to be considered for possible acceptance by the U.S. Supreme Court.  Our petition asking the Supreme Court for “certiorari” (to accept the appeal) in the carry permit lawsuit, Rogers v. Grewal, has been scheduled for a February 22, 2019 conference with the Justices.  Because the State of NJ has waived the filing of an opposition brief, the Justices can require the state to file a responsive brief, which would further delay the Court’s consideration of whether to take the case.  Also, the Justices may have independent reasons to delay consideration of whether to accept the case (as they did for several weeks when they considered taking a previous carry case brought by ANJRPC several years ago).  There is simply no way to know precisely when there will be a decision on whether to take the case.  ANJRPC will issue alerts with updates when appropriate. Meanwhile, we are very pleased to report that six amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs have been filed supporting our request that the Supreme Court agree to hear the case.  These briefs have been submitted to the high court by other organizations and individuals supporting our case.  The amicus briefs filed to date include: 1) Coalition of New Jersey Firearms Owners, Second Amendment Foundation, John Jillard, Mark Cheeseman, Jay Factor, George Greco, Jeffrey  Muller, written by David D. Jensen, Esq, This brief argues that this case presents the ideal vehicle for the Court to address the issue of handgun carry outside the home.  This is because [...]

Opinion: Firearms background checks bill is useless legislation

Video and article Link Democrats are introducing gun control legislation timed for the anniversary of the shooting of former Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords. "Now is the time to come together," Giffords said at a Capitol Hill news conference Tuesday. (Jan. 8) AP   As a New Jersey small business owner, I’m painfully familiar with government red tape. As a New Jersey gun owner, I’m painfully familiar with the government’s distrust and overregulation of a constitutionally protected right. Now the 119th Congress is aspiring to pour more salt in that wound in the name of H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019. You can ignore the title because it’s not really a bipartisan bill; hardly any are these days. But what you can’t ignore are the additional hardships this bill would impose on law-abiding gun owners.   law-abiding gun owners. Alexander Roubian, president of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, opposes a proposed Ramsey ordinance that would ban the firing of weapons in gun ranges. (Photo: Adam Anik/NorthJersey.com) We’re told that H.R. 8 will prevent bad guys from getting their hands on guns. That would be a great if criminals actually purchased guns legally. Unfortunately, they’re criminals and seldom follow the law. A recent Bureau of Justice Statistics report from the Department of Justice tells us just that. Released in January of 2019, the report found that the overwhelming majority of people convicted of gun-related crimes obtained those guns by stealing them, buying them on the black market, or through a straw purchase (where someone with a clean record buys a gun for a criminal). H.R. 8 does nothing to prevent any of those crimes. K-9 UNIT: Detection dogs help in search for the cause of [...]
