Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On Monday, August 8 2016, at 10:00 a.m. in Committee Room 1 of the State House Annex.

The New Jersey Senate Law and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hold a procedurally required hearing on the legislature’s maneuver to kill incremental improvements in the “justifiable need” standard to qualify for a handgun carry permit that were recommended by Governor Christie and implemented by the State Police earlier this year.

There will likely be no vote taken by the committee on Monday, but the NJ Constitution (Article V, Section IV, paragraph 6) requires that a transcript of the hearing be provided to all members of the legislature before the entire legislature can take a final vote, so it is important that all members of the legislature hear from gun owners right now.

Take Action

New Jersey’s “Justifiable Need” standard is one of the strictest in the nation and is preventing law-abiding citizens from being able to carry a firearm for self-defense in times of emergency.

Governor Christie’s improvements to the right to carry caused anti-gun legislators to panic. They subsequently decided to use this procedural legislative maneuver in order to prevent these improvements from being implemented.

Anti-gun legislators in New Jersey do not want you to be able to defend yourself, and they are going all out to make sure of it.

Please attend the hearing on Monday and voice your opposition to this egregious attempt to prevent the strengthening of New Jersey’s self-defense laws. Also, contact your lawmakers by clicking the “Take Action” button above and politely urge them to oppose this ridiculous procedural maneuver.

Someone must take (name) all of those so called “legislators” (that voted to take your right to protection) into court and sue them for any death or harm that happens to you or your family because they made a legal penalty preventing you from having the legal and Constitutional means of protecting yourself and family from potentially losing life, liberty and also sue for infringing the right to keep and bare arms without a Constitutional amendment by the States authorizing such. They are responsible for creating the prohibition and therefore responsible for your lack of legal personal protection, in my… Read more »

On my blog (as well as on many others) we maintain copies of “the list” of traitors in Kommiecticut. Names, addresses, and phone numbers of everyone who supported the post Sandy Hook infringements of 2013. I also have a second list from the last round of unconstitutional/intolerable acts of 2016. They don’t like it one bit, but that’s too bad. Tyrants love to maintain lists, but they sure don’t like being on them. Unfortunately, the five big cities full of the entitlement class continue to vote for one party rule, by voting for the party of Santa Claus. Therefore, nothing… Read more »

Come visit the Communist Country known as the FREE STATE. Otherwise known as Maryland. We have had “good” DemocRATic communist control for YEARS now. A LAW ABIDING Marylander CANNOT get a CARRY PERMIT.
Here are the exceptions:
1.) One MUST be a RETIRED Policeman,
2.) A MONEY PROTECTOR,
3.) One MUST PROVE by court documents that your life is in DANGER
4.) One MUST know the “RIGHT” people in the CLOSED WALLED government.

Your life is in danger when you go out to eat, go to the movies, concert hall, and school. Americans who are law-abiding citizens should have the right to protect themselves no matter what state they are in in the USA. So, by virtue of the last few mass shooting in gun-free zones and so called safe zones, we all have a justifiable need! Get your heads out of the sand for Pete’s sake.

Texas is “like a whole other country” where local politicians and government administrators can sue citizens who complain about illegal acts of those politicians and administrators done in their official capacities and the Attorney General just watches and tries to “negotiate” with the original government perpetrators. Strong arm tactics in retaliation for attempts to make them follow the law. All while using tax payer dollars to fund the lawsuits. Sounds like the same banana republic to me.

That kind of stuff goes on everywhere but I’d still take Texas over New Jersy in heart beat.

@Warrior, Sounds like a whole other issue to me. If you are taking about former Gov. Perry being sued, then you should know that the suit was dismissed and Perry got his legal costs back. But if you are saying that Texas is not perfect, then… you are right. Nothing created by the hand of man is perfect.
