New Jersey –-( Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, another holiday or no holiday, I want to take this opportunity to wish you all, the Beauty of Nature, the Joy of Family and Friends, the Peace that Love brings and the Happiness of Sharing all of those Blessings with those who are important to you.

The one thing we all share in common is our humanity. Whatever else we do at this time of year, perhaps one of the most important is to reflect on what it means to be a member of this AMAZING species. The mind of man has no limits other than the ones it inflicts upon itself. Perhaps our greatest challenge is to use the gift of our minds to improve our lives and those of our family and friends. If enough of our fellow humans embrace this challenge, we truly could have Peace on Earth.

Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and all the best of the season and the years to come to you and your families.

Matching Pledges
Please allow me to once again thank our sponsor ArmsNAmmo for putting up a $500.00 matching pledge. We still have until the January 11, 2012 meeting to meet this challenge. Please don’t forget to mention “matching Pledge” on your donation in the comments section of PayPal or on the memo portion of your check. Thank you to those who have already donated. We will need every dollar we receive in order to fund Operation Establish Compliance, our activities, upcoming events and continuing obligations. Remember, as a non-profit organization, we rely upon your generosity to further our mission

Speaking of the January meeting, the SAF/ANJRPC lawsuit challenging New Jersey’s “justifiable need” clause is perhaps the most significant litigation directly impacting upon the right to discreetly carry a defensive handgun for self-defense and defense of one’s family. I know that every single member is going to want to show up in support of David Jensen and hear what he has to say about the future of this litigation.

Second Amendment Attorney David Jensen to Speak at NJ2AS

This event will be held on Wednesday evening January 11, 2012 at the Gun for Hire Firearms Training Center on 75 Rutgers Street in Belleville, NJ. The meeting begins at 7:30 PM. Be sure to have your questions ready for David’s Q&A session. This is usually the best part of these events. Remember to invite your family, friends and neighbors. Please register for this FREE event on our website at under events. We will also be running our Non-resident CCW program for those who may be interested.

I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage you to write your thoughtful letters to the editor regarding the fundamental right to keep and bear arms for legitimate purposes in New Jersey and throughout the Nation. You may have noticed lately that there have been a number of positive articles about our rights. Paul Mulshine and others have written several articles that question the way our RKBA is being handled by the authorities.

Firearms ownership is becoming more and more accepted in our state. We need to keep this momentum going. Remember, always stay positive and that discretion is the better part of valor. Let’s concentrate on all of the positive reasons there are to own firearms and to learn to safely and properly handle them for all legitimate purposes. This includes hunting and competitive shooting as well as for self-defense.

Please enjoy the holidays safely.
