NJ Senator Loretta Weinberg Leads Democrats in Sneaky Trick to Block Citizens Rights

  • Resolution Intentionally Blocks Self-Defense By Those Facing Serious Threats.
  • Please Immediately Tell Committee Members and All State Senators to Oppose.

Trenton, NJ – -(Ammoland.com)- Outraged by the promulgation of State Police regulations making a tiny incremental improvement in right to carry recommended by Governor Christie, Senate Democrats led by Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37) are fast-tracking SCR101, a legal trick that could kill the new regulations before they are even formally adopted.

Only in the Garden State do lawmakers openly block self-defense by those facing serious threats and tout it as a good thing.

And only in the New Jersey does the state constitution contain an obscure provision allowing the legislature to unilaterally kill regulations issued by an entirely separate branch of government in a simple “resolution” that does not require the Governor’s signature to be effective.

Police owe no duty to protect individual citizens – a troubling doctrine repeatedly affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court. That means you’re on your own in an emergency, yet those who wish to take responsibility for their own safety are effectively blocked from doing so by New Jersey’s absurdly (and unconstitutionally) restrictive carry law.

The pending state police regulations recommended by Governor Christie represent a small incremental improvement, allowing those facing “serious threats” to qualify.

Anti-gun legislators, who themselves enjoy the armed protection of State House security details, hypocritically are working to block everyone else’s self-defense rights. SCR101 would be more aptly named the Citizen’s Victimization Act.

SCR101 is scheduled for consideration in the full Senate on Monday, May 9 2016, passing along party line votes in the Senate Government, Wagering, Tourism & Historic Preservation Committee tomorrow (Thursday, May 5).

Please immediately tell all State Senators to vote NO on SCR101. Tell them to support the right of those facing serious threats to protect themselves where government has abandoned its obligation to do so.

Living in California, I have empathy for NJ residents. I thought we had it bad, but NJ is really a S–thole. More importantly, I believe that nothing will change as longs as we have “a government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” People in the inner cities aren’t going to vote away their entitlements. A good start is withholding Federal funds from sanctuary cities and cities they pass unconstitutional laws. Do away with immunity to legislatures that pass unconstitutional laws. This can only happen at the Federal level. Preferably by someone that… Read more »

Firearms laws and statutes will soon become a states right issue.It’s critical to live in a free state when this happens although to a certain degree it already has. I know that it is a total pain in the ass to uproot your families and move to a gun friendly state because of the tyranny going on in states like New Jersey but I see no other viable options. The socialists are in a panic mode to get as much unconstitutional,socialist,tyrannical,anti-2A legislation passed as possible as soon as possible. They are acting like they have already lost the White House… Read more »

The TRUTH about the “supremacy clause” – our Constitution does not delegate to the national government authority to restrict our arms, ammunition, regulate firearms dealers, do background checks, etc. The national government may not lawfully circumvent this restriction by means of a treaty wherein the signatory governments agree to disarm their Citizens or Subjects.

NJ will never be free of leaches like her, they are voted into office by the inner city blacks and union thugs that really run this state. Along with that we have make believe republicans that have no balls. Once in a while a make believe Republican gets elected Governor and turns out to be like Whitless and Christie. So we are stuck, and to make it even more humiliating McGreasey passed a law that fines us if we leave this sh*t hole.

If citizens would sue their elected representatives/authorities every time they’re damaged/harmed by UNCONSTITUTIONAL, and therefore, UNLAWFUL “laws” (known as a “nullity” in Constitutional Law), for a KNOWING, OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN, VIOLATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW (Re. 42 USC Sections 1983, 1985, 1986) we might be able to return this country to it’s LIMITED GOVERNMENT foundation within the confines of the Constitution as intended by the founders. Use the 14th Amendment to “pierce” the “qualified immunity” of any “sworn officers” (Include judges and governors and legislative representatives, etc.). NO JUDGES ARE NOT IMMUNE WHEN THEY KNOWINGLY, OR… Read more »

If Governor Christie was serious about protecting the rights of the electorate, he would immediately issue a counter-decree by executive order that all weapons and munitions be defunded for LEO INCLUDING Capitol police, Secret Service, FBI, State Police, etc., especially and including elected officials’ security details effective immediately. Senator Weinberg should be able to fend for herself just as well as any private citizen under the same restrictions and laws affecting the men and women of New Jersey. If we can’t protect ourselves, Senator, neither should you allow others to protect you. Fend yourself for a change!

Why just in Jersey. We should do that for all states…. See how protected they feel then. I am glad to be able to say I am from Jersey and will never step a foot in that state ever again…. After 20 years in the Navy I would not return to Jersey due to the laws and cost of living. I feel any one that served in the military has the right to carry just like they did while serving. All branches of the Military should carry concealed. Does any think that once you leave the military that the job… Read more »

First thing they need to do is take our guns away. Then pile us all into stacked cities so they can monitor everything we do and kill whom ever they please when ever they want.

It takes 3 months to get a permit to purchase a handgun in NJ now. Christie keeps vetoing the Dimocrap anti gun bills. You can’t have knives, pepper spray, batons, stun guns or firearms to defend yourself in NJ. The ghetto cities in NJ have some of the highest illegal gun murder rates in the US. NJ ranks 6th in the number of illegals in the state. With a population of 8 million citizens we have 500,000 illegals here.

And to think people say CALI is bad when it comes to gun laws, at least here you CAN own a gun but in nj 8f you even get caught with one in your car you WILL spend at least 5 years in prison and maybe more. Nj is a gun free zone so lets send all the criminals and gangs there so they can have their way. If the politicians want the people disarmed then they ate going to have to lead by example and disarm the security people that they have!! If the people cannot have guns for… Read more »

California, New Jersey, New York and Illinois are 4 of the top states.for crime and 4 of the top states with the most restrictive gun laws. Do they not realize that taking the guns from honest, responsible Americans, won’t effect gun crimes? The only thing that will effect crime is getting the guns out of criminals and thugs’ hands. I guess the old saying is true… ‘Ignorance breeds Ignorance’.

For those not familiar with NJ it is a lost cause. The Liberals so control the state government, so dominate the legislature and the courts that it is amazing that they have not totally disarmed the law abiding element. The only recourse that the law abiding have is the federal courts but even these courts in the Northeast are dominated by jurists who see nothing wrong about disarming the law abiding element of the population. Had we been able to get a case before the US Supreme Court while Scalia yet lived we might have prevailed, But now,…

You are right WE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER. The problem is the majority of the people in NJ doesn’t care. UNLESS it affects them DIRECTLY. These politicians are more corrupt then any politician in the country. She said Gunny crime is down in our state. But yet that same week the post says crime is already higher then last year, and it’s not 6 months yet.

well, voting against Lincoln was not a bad thing… he should have been blocked. But this charade of “justice” is a travesty. I’d like to read of this piece of work being accosted on some street in Newark, seriously threatened by some street punks…… shaken enough to certainly go “code brown”…. then listen to her rant about how nasty it is for individual citizens to have the means to defend themselves…..
