New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- I was able to obtain a copy of this letter signed by the Constitutionally correct representatives of New Jersey Legislative District 24.

Senator Oroho, Assemblywoman McHose and Assemblyman Space all signed the attached letter requesting the assistance of the Superintendent of the NJSP, Colonel Rick Fuentes.

Please refer to the attached documents.

Thank you,

Yes, they are taking longer than statuatory limits to process applications. THEY DON’T CARE BECAUSE THEIR MASTERS GIVE THEM TREATS WHEN THEY STALL AND KEEP EVIL GUNS FROM THE UNWASHED MASS OF “CIVILIANS.” It’s time to sue the police for causing the delay.
