New Jersey -(Ammoland.com)- I took on the role as the president of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) with the expectation I will be promoting the free exercise of the Second Amendment in New Jersey; I never in my wildest dreams expected to uncover and expose such levels of discrimination and corruption that you will only read about in history books.
On Monday morning the citizens of NJ will began to fight back and expose the corruption and discrimination that we have endured for years while politicians, judges, and police departments laughed in our faces.
We began this undercover investigation to document and expose the ridiculous delays and violations which occur in our firearm application process.
Instead we documented and exposed through video evidence the corruption, sexism, racism, ageism, ableism, et al., within New Jersey's firearm and conceal carry application process.
May this be a warning to the 49 other states in our country how hopelessly committed NJ is to creating a society of victims through arbitrary and discriminatory gun laws. With a legislature bent on destroying the 2nd Amendment whenever possible, and an indifferent governor, Christie, running for the highest office in our country, it is imperative that the country understands how expendable the state of NJ finds the life of its citizens.
The average citizen of NJ has absolutely no legal opportunity to protect themselves by bearing arms, particularly outside their doorstep. The state legislators, judges, and municipal police departments tacitly collude to ensure no one outside of law enforcement has the right to carry a firearm. Simultaneously, countless district and supreme court decisions have historically upheld that law enforcement has absolutely no duty to protect an individual citizen (see Warren v. DC 1981). Meanwhile, the same law-enforcement officials who enjoy the exclusive protection of firearms have complete omnipotence to deny every citizen the right to carry, pointing the finger at our tyrannical “justifiable need” laws passed by legislators, who in turn, enshrine the police with legal infallibility.
This is a vicious circle of corruption, and the sovereign citizen is the one left to dry, but even worse, sometimes to die.
Beyond even the discussion of concealed carry privileges which are already non-existent in NJ, the NJ2AS has discovered that police departments are now wantonly denying even simple possession permits, which are required in NJ to purchase firearms for home protection.
For years we have stated that New Jersey’s firearms application process is massively discriminatory and racist, and creates victimhood among regular citizens — and for years our concerns have been laughed at and disregarded by public officials — now we have solid, irrefutable video evidence of all forms of discrimination occurring in the process.
We have collected dozens of examples of practically every form of discrimination. We intend to shine a light on the tyrannical attitude of our state and municipal government until the legislators and Governor Christie correct this seriously discriminatory practice that has already quite literally cost the lives of NJ citizens. To deny a woman the ability to purchase a firearm because in the opinion of the police officer she is too small or because an applicant is too old does not put our society back decades; it puts us back centuries. NJ legislators and judges have passively created a true-to-life caste system in the Garden State.
New Jerseyans deserve better than a state where prosecutors joke with judges that they are the only people they know that have a concealed carry permit. We deserve better than politicians who defend laws that persistently disarm the sovereign, non-criminal public, yet run behind metal detectors and armed state troopers to pass their tyrannical bills in our statehouse while personally enjoying the benefits of a conceal carry permits. But perhaps most grossly, we certainly deserve better than law enforcement officials drunk on power that arbitrarily deny law-abiding citizens their unalienable second amendment rights. We will shed sunlight on the disgusting abuses of power in the Garden State until citizens are afforded the same abilities to protect themselves as those in virtually every other state in our nation. Otherwise, we demand our politicians in the Trenton statehouse, bureaucrats in every municipal building, and officer in every police department disarm themselves completely to experience what it feels like to be on a level playing field with NJ's ostensibly second-class citizens.
Our teaser video which we released on the 6-month anniversary of the senseless and preventable murder of Carol Bowne has already been covered by PBS, NJTV, Channel 12, NPR, and Channel 9 Chasing News. To date, the Orange Police Department has made NO comment on the footage, but that's only because they know the rest of the content we caught on tape.

On Monday morning 12/07/2015 in an other post we released a comprehensive, hidden camera video that exposes unfathomable forms of arbitrary discrimination. It will make you sick to your stomach. We are done having “conversations” or “debates” about our rights. Trenton doesn't care, Trenton isn't listening, and people are dying.
Now is the time for action. Now begins a journey to expose the corruption of power that has plagued our state until our second amendment rights are faithfully honored.
