New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- Despite the fact that Shaneen Allen possesses a License to Carry Firearms issued by the City of Philadelphia…

Despite the fact that Allen has been trained in firearm safety and passed an NRA handgun safety course…

Despite the fact that Allen voluntarily presented her carry license to the police in conjunction with a routine traffic stop, as per her training…

New Jersey is doing its best to turn Shaneen Allen into a convicted felon facing a State Prison term of a minimum-mandatory 3-5 years with no chance of parole.

What heinous offense did Shaneen Allen — a hard-working single mother of two, with no prior criminal record — do to deserve such a fate? Last October, she travelled with her Pennsylvania licensed handgun loaded with lawfully purchased, low penetration self defense ammunition, into New Jersey.

That is all.

Allen never pointed the firearm at anyone, never threatened anyone, never removed the firearm from her car or even out of the purse in the backseat. Nonetheless, she is charged with unlawful possession of a handgun and unlawful possession of hollow nose bullets. Atlantic County is prosecuting her fully.

Recognizing Allen’s remarkable facts, the Atlantic County New Jersey PTI Director agreed to accept Allen into the PTI program— however, the Atlantic County Prosecutor is refusing to allow it. The PTI program would allow Allen to avoid becoming a convicted felon and serving prison time.

The Atlantic County New Jersey Prosecutor would rather see Allen serve the mandatory three (3) years in State Prison, and is pushing the matter to trial.

Due to New Jersey’s “Graves Act” firearm laws, if Allen is convicted, the lowest sentence a judge may give her must include a three (3) year prison term with no chance of parole.

Until last week, the Public Defender’s Officer represented Allen, but she has since hired the law firm of Evan F. Nappen, Attorney at Law P.C. to represent her.

When asked for a comment on the case, Evan Nappen, Esq., stated, “New Jersey has a history of racist and sexist gun laws. Women are denied the means of self-defense against larger stronger men.”

“New Jersey’s earliest gun laws banned Blacks and Indians from possessing guns. Apparently, not much has changed. End the madness. Pass the national carry reciprocity law in which gun licenses would be recognized by every state and be treated much like drivers licenses. No more innocent victims of New Jersey draconian, racist, sexist gun laws, that are out of step with the rest of America.”

Louis Nappen, Esq., of the firm, who appeared on Allen’s behalf this week in court, stated, “We will be doing everything we can to zealously represent her, but I see this sort of thing happening more and more. ”

“The ‘feel good’ legislation that turns mere possession into a “Graves Act” second-degree crime does nothing to stop true criminals and turns law-abiding citizens into felons. Ms. Allen is a prime example of this. It’s sad, and wrong.”

I just watched some “old reruns” of the match game and family feud. On the shows they ask contestants about themselves. I was amazed to see twice, women who were either police or military stating they “enjoy shooting” as it was no big deal to the audience or host. Too bad those good ole gals weren’t teaching. We would have many fewer student deaths. It seems the elites want to put us all in harms way thru fear mongering in order to control and enslave us. That is exactly why our genius forefathers wrote the Bill of Rights. The next… Read more »


This state is BULLSH*T. this is one of the top reasons we moved out of NJ and right to Texas, never to look back. I have no desire to even visit that shit hole. Also the taxes and living costs are so high, but the roads are shit. What a rip off. No rights, keep ya poor thru the ridiculous theft they call taxation there. Also too many damn liberals. So sick of that sh*t. Glad to be gone, glad to have rights once again. And it’s a plus to be around more people who respect trump as well. Fu*k… Read more »


Bringing guns or pot from states where they are legal to states where they are not is a big problem. Same with certain states not honoring the legal marriage of gay couples who were married in other states. Let’s stand up for national reciprocity for pot, guns and gay marriage. Gay marriage is protected under the Constitution as are guns. Pot….well… it’s just stupid not to allow it.


Learn your history or be doomed to repeat it. All Communist and Dictatorship countries disarm their people to gain absolute control. Then they take all your property and money. Poverty, slavery, rape, murder, etc. prevail. Only the wealthy afford protection with armed escorts. Sound familiar Mr. Bloomberg?


After Heckler v. DC I can’t see how this law is not struck down in it’s entirety. Making examples of honest people is not a deterrent to crime. It IS a crime. Now she is truly a target to any opportunist and so are all women now that the word is out. Still feel safe in New Jersey?


That is the worst law I ever heard of and I hate guns!
She legally got a gun.
Send her back to PA with her gun and say “you cannot bring this here maam.”
Really , is she a threat to society?


I live in Alaska – no permit carry – open carry ok , why do my Constitutional right require a “permit” to exercise my rights in other states. Don’t believe the lies your states have given you since you were born. It is all about control and the most populated states know they are taxing themselves into a revolt one way or another.


I live in PA – have a permit to carry – certified in basic handgun training – no criminal record…I didn’t know the law of reciprocity. There but for the grace of God go I. Let’s change the law!

Dean from PA

I live in PA and have a CCL. Why is it that when I leave PA and travel to NJ, NY, MD, DEL etc. my CCL becomes null and void? My drivers and marriage licenses are valid in every state. Call your legislators in Washington and insist that they support H.R.2959 National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013! Vote for pro gun candidates! Get involved!


Hey people. Judges hate when it’s done. But, it only takes one person on the jury to refuse to convict because of ‘Bad Law’. Jury Nullification. Publicize this all you can in NJ. And hope like hell her counsel, Evan Nappen makes the right pre-emptory challenges. I don’t think he’s allowed to mention it in the courtroom
Best of luck to you Shaneen.

That judge need to be shot cause he or she has all timers. They let killers run free but somebody who took the correct and proper steps 100% to be able to carry a weapon sure is getting time for no reason.


Stopped for an “unsafe lane change” or stopped for being black? Christ, I’ve been driving in NJ recently and thought unsafe lane changes were mandatory??

A few years ago , my wife and I visited Washington DC. We stayed in Virginia, a state which allows reciprocity for out of state CHL permits. Naturally, I did not carry my pistol into DC. When we left Virgina, we decided to go to Pennsylvania and visit Gettysburg. To do this, we had to drive through Maryland. I knew Maryland is a firearms hostile state. We stopped before we crossed the state line. I unloaded my pistol,put it in a case, and place under the luggage of our car. If we had been stopped, I would not have mentioned… Read more »


New Jersey the dishonest state.
When you have criminals running the government. You shouldn’t expect anything for the honest people…..


What else can you expect from a state run by a bunch of democrats? It’s liberalism at the peak of injustice to all (except those doing the running).

David Greer

Congratulations to the officer and Liberal government officials for arresting an INNOCENT citizen.

ALL charges against Shaneen Allen should be dropped immediately.
