Township of Washington, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- The New Jersey Coalition for Self Defense has once again applied a unique analysis tool to predict the outcome of the McDonald v. Chicago case currently being considered by the Supreme Court.

Using what's known as the KJ Analysis, the NJCSD concluded that the justices will find in favor of McDonald and that the Second Amendment will be incorporated against the states under the 14th Amendment.

KJ is a method which analyzes reactions to a product, service or statement, compiles the voices, and organizes them into a hierarchy to understand key issues or needs. In this particular case the NJCSD team organized the Justice's statements culled from the transcript of this important Supreme Court Case.

“I was thrilled to be asked by the NJCSD to once again contribute on this key SCOTUS case, as we did in Heller v. DC. I am confident that the KJ technique has yielded a good approximation of the key issues we will see decided very soon,” said Joe Ficalora, who led the analysis team. “This is an exciting time for me to watch as our trampled self-defense rights in NJ will eventually be restored because of Supreme Court cases like McDonald v. Chicago.”

The questions presented to the Court were whether the Second Amendment applies to the states because it is incorporated by the Fourteenth Amendment's Privileges and Immunities or Due Process clauses and thereby made applicable to the states, and whether the handgun ban, and other aspects of gun registration regulations affecting rifles and shotguns, in Chicago, Illinois are unconstitutional.

“The Supreme Court has already seen Washington DC thumb their noses at the Heller decision, so we hope they'll have the wisdom to recognize what our Founders knew,” said Arthur Rosbury-Yoder, Executive Director of the NJCSD.

“They knew that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is fundamental not only to personal protection but to ward off the tyrannical forms of government and encroachments the likes of which we've already seen from this administration and in New Jersey.”

Skip Coryell, founder of the Second Amendment March, also considered the upcoming decision. “There is wide speculation about what level of ‘scrutiny' the court will use to apply our 2nd Amendment right. Justices Scalia and Roberts seem to recognize that ‘reasonable' regulations can give way too much wiggle room where some states or municipalities can essentially regulate the right out of existence, such as in New Jersey.”

“Americans across the country anxiously await the results of this case. We're hoping that the Justices recognize our fundamental rights and no longer allow states or localities to trample our freedoms by permitting our safety or sportsmanship to be incremented or regulated into oblivion. Either way, it's going to be an interesting July 4th holiday this year.” Said NJCSD President Robert Kreisler.

    1. Robb, you are right.

      The US authorities investigated Hasan and cleared him…dispite the fact that he was obviously a ticking time bomb.

      This is, of course, a black mark on our intelligence community's ability to do their job.

      But lets say you were part of the team investigating Nidal.

      You are aware that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan had expressed extremist views.

      You have monitored Hasan exchanging e-mails asking for spiritual guidance regarding violence with Imam Anwar al-Awlaki.

      In one of the e-mails, Hasan writes al-Awlaki: "I can't wait to join you" in the afterlife. Hasan also asks al-Awlaki when jihad is appropriate, and whether it is permissible if innocents are killed in a suicide attack.

      In the months before the shooting, you intercept emails from Hasan asking al-Awlaki how to transfer funds abroad without coming to the attention of law authorities.

      You also intercept messages with Nidal discussing suicide bombings and other threats,

      In his emails he likens a suicide bomber to a soldier who throws himself on a grenade to save his colleagues, and sacrifices his life for a "more noble cause."

      You are aware that Hasan has attempted to contact Al Qaeda and that Hasan has "more unexplained connections to people being tracked by the FBI" than just Anwar al-Awlaki.

      Given all that you know, would you still defend his right to buy that weapon, I should hope not.

      Look. Right now we can blame our intelligence communikty for not doing a good job. But Sooner or later our intelligence community is going to get it right. they are gong to connect the dots on the NEXT Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan.

      Yet dispite all that, Gun rights advocates like the NRA will not allow them to stop the Next Nidal from buying a gun and carrying that gun into a crowded mall, a school, a bar or a little league game,

      It is his second amendment right.

    2. Norris, Norris, Norris. The NRA has never defended the rights of terrorists, only the rights of law-abiding citizens to exercise their freedoms. The FBI investigated Hasan and cleared him of any terrorist leanings, so you might as well blame them for not seeing into the future. As for choosing a weapon for mass mayhem, a gallon of gasoline was used by a nut-case to burn down a nightclub in New York. If I remember correctly, the tally was over a hundred. What you fail to realize is that freedom is dangerous. That is why it's "the land of the free and the home of the brave". Cowards need not apply.

    3. This is a BIG A victory for home grown terrorists all over the nation.

      The supreme court has made it even easier for home grown terrorists to kill Americans

      Now they can walk into a local gun shop in any city in our nation, purchase all the guns and ammunition they want, practice to their hearts content and be ready for the BIG day.

      Bombs are unpredictable. They can often fail. Just ask Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who tried to blow up an American airliner with a bomb hidden in his underwear. Or ask Connecticut resident Faisal Shahzad whose crudely home made bombs failed to detonate in Times Square

      Handguns, on the other hand, are designed to work every time…even for someone with very little training in their use. Just ask Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal killed 13 soldiers at Fort Hood and wounded 30 using a semi automatic pistol he purchased legally at a civilian gun store. He was well known to be sympathic to terrorist causes but with the NRA protecting the rights of "suspected terrorists" like Hasan there's nothing much you can do except ask him if you can show him other weapons he might like to buy.

      If you were a wanna be terrorist, which weapon would you choose…a crudely home made bomb or a factory tested and deadly semi automatic weapon that even a child can operate?
