New Jersey-(Ammoland.com)- The state of New Jersey is at it again.

A Pennsylvania woman was arrested, denied legal counsel and denied feminine hygiene products due to legal firearms locked securely in the trunk of her car after stopping to text her girlfriend.

The following story is another nightmare caused by New Jersey's draconian, unconstitutional gun control regime.

Our story all begins when Meg Fellenbaum stopped on the side of the road in Warren County, NJ, to text her girlfriend while on her way to their second residence in Hackettstown, NJ. Meg, who is gay, acquired and starting training with firearms following a series of attacks perpetrated against her because she was gay. At the time she had legally owned firearms in the trunk of her car, locked up and unloaded.

Suddenly a NJ State Policeman was tapping at her window to see if she's okay and why she is stopped on the side of the road. Meg assured him that she was okay and had just stopped to text her girlfriend (because texting and driving is against the law). The officer returned to his patrol vehicle. Unfortunately though, this is where her nightmare began.

Not even a minute later, as she was about to pull back onto the road, the officer was back at her window. The officer said he noticed a single bullet laying on her back seat floor and asked if she was carrying a firearm at the time. She replied “No.” Since she was not carrying a firearm on her at the time, and added that she does have a permit to carry in PA. The officer then asked to see her PA carry permit, which she produced immediately. The officer informed her that permit had expired in February, which is odd since NJ does not recognize PA carry permits anyway as many other incidents have highlighted. At this point she is asked to step out of the car and when she does is immediately handcuffed and read her Miranda rights.

Confused why this is happening to her, she asks what is going on. The officer replied that she was not under arrest but that she was being handcuffed for her safety. Meg never actually saw the bullet in question that the officers had mentioned or that it was, as the police claimed, a hollow point.

The patrol car door is opened up and clipboard is handed to Meg, with the officers advising her to sign this to consent to a search of her vehicle.

After refusing to consent, an officer on scene exclaimed, “Great! Looks like we're doing this the hard way! Let's get it towed to the station!”

Meg was then driven to the police station, still unaware of what she was being detained for.

After arriving at the station, she was handcuffed to a bench, where she remained for over ten hours being intimidated and interrogated by the police demanding she consent to a search of her vehicle. During this 10 hours Meg suffered multiple panic attacks and during the stress of the event her menstrual cycle began. She requested a tampon from the officers, and just like her requests for her lawyer and phone call, it was denied and told they do not have any at the station. After many threats, being denied legal counsel and a phone call, the officers then told her that she had screwed up and pissed off the judge and that they were going to get into her car one way or another. She was told that she could “forget [the officers] telling the judge she cooperated with them” and charging her with only the alleged bullet they found in her car.

Meg Fellenbaum
Meg Fellenbaum

After fighting through her tears, she asked once again for her phone call home to let her family know what is happening. The officers told her, if she wanted her family to know, they would call them for her.

At that point she once again asked for her constitutionally guaranteed right to a lawyer, and was laughed at.

To make matters worse Meg was in jail for a week (where she was finally provided maxi pads), lost income due to not being able to work, and her grandmother, who Meg is her primary caretaker, fell twice since nobody was able to assist her. All of this because she had her legally owned firearms, locked in the trunk of her car per federal transport laws, and allegedly a single round on the back floor of her vehicle.

Please help Meg fight this injustice. She will need tens of thousands of dollars to cover her legal fees, please donate to her legal defense fund by clicking this link.

UPDATE: 10/31/2016 @ 2:30PM

We received a copy of the police report and Meg was charge with the following:

  • (2C:39-5) – Unlawful Possession of Weapons
  • (2C:39-3.F) Possession of Hollow Tip Ammunition

AND for the final slap in her face they also charged her with criminal trespassing because when she pulled over to text her girlfriend she was on a private property. Only in New Jersey!

  • (2C:18-3) Criminal Trespass

Hmmmmm, where is this hollow point bullet that was allegedly found? Could it be that it does not exist? Even if it does, could it have been planted by that power-hungry cop? Even though a pardon was issued by the Governor, I still think we need to take a closer look at this situation in order to determine whether or not that cop should keep his job.

Seems like each and every aspect of this case should b closely examined, especially the ridiculous laws in N.J., and those who enact them. Of course, the role played by voters could stand examination also, and the victim doesn’t come off blameless, though she was, in my opinion, greatly abused, pardonedor not.

The PA Governor should send a company of state police to NJ to break Ms. Fellenbaum out of her illegal captivity, and to arrest the Governor of NJ and the head of the NJ State Police (Stazi) on kidnaping and Civil Rights violations charges, and bring them all back to PA.

Thanks Dorris I live in a state where aswering a cell phone call is illegal as is NJ this is done for safety reasons. At the risk of being redundant the woman pulled over to answer a text message and being pulled over on the side of the freeway is dangerous unless you are experienceing a car emergency and thus the Highway Trooper merly asked if she was in trouble and needed help, so all of the aggravation is on her. Moral of the story do not stop in NJ even to answer a text message it is not worth… Read more »

I suspect that there are more than a few people who understand and know what is going on in places such as N.J.

Must my 2 cents worth.

The woman made the dumb mistake to pull over to get this answer a text message and that is NOT a ROADSIDE EMERGENCY. No wonder the NJ State Trooper stopped, he thought she was in trouble and needed help. I do not answer text messages from anyone mutchless a phone call before I got Bluetooth now I can but the point is no text message is an Emergency. She should have continued untill she pulled into a Restaraunt parking lot gone inside and answerd her text message and still avoided the aggravation and legal fees she has to pay for… Read more »

The first thing people should be aware of is that when the police read you your rights without your lawyer present, and they ask if you understand those rights, the answer is always NO!!!! Tell them you need your lawyer to explain them to you. No matter what act stupid and insist that only your lawyer can explain your Miranda rights to you!!! this puts a stop to a lot of BS games the police like to play.

In order to possess any bullet or firearm you need to be in possession of a Firearms ID card. The only way to possess ammunition or a firearm legally is to fall within a stated exemption such as hunting or traveling to and from a target range. The police are not at fault.

The police and troopers will notice car or truck is not a NJ tag vehicle and will stop you, better not have any weapons in the car. Even worse in DC, they consider any part of a bullet, live round or spent casing, primer, shot shell, slug, etc. to be ammo and they will charge you unless you have a valid FOID card, in order to have possession of ammo.

There is a NJ law that prohibits hollow point ammunition except in your home, at the range or at the store, or transporting it between these locations. A previous court decision says there is no exception for moving ammo between residences. So by their convoluted laws, she was breaking the law, if there even was a hollow point cartridge in the car.

Hey, don’t forget the role played by state governors in the legislative process. As I recall, governors have veto power, and while the legislature can and sometimes does override, overriding is yet another hill for the legislature to climb in their sometimes illadvised efforts to legislate.

After taking such appropriate action, the trial judge could and should find a way to significantly sanction the state fuzz, in such manner as the judicial sanction will remain ringing in their ears for the next century or two. BY the way, one wonders as to whether the airline, whose operational problems led to the above problems should feel the heat of judicial ire too.

Quite likely, Christie is simply another Bloated Political Type, and you can define Bloated any way you like.

He still has the lawful option of full pardon for every such stupid and unconstitutional set of charges. He fails/refuses to use it. He SHOULD quickly issue full pardon to this woman, essentially erasing the legal aspects of it all. If he’d start doing this, the legislature would eventually wake up. More importanly, justice might return, in some smal measure, to New Jersey.

In my opinion, Christie is a wind bag. The governor does not, by himself make law, however he or she, he here, is not without relevant powers and authority re the antics of the state legislature, should the governor wish to exercise such powers. Looks that Christie doesn’t. BY the way, given that Federal Law and Interstate Travel both were here involved, where the hell are “the Feds”? Indeed, where are they?

Christie’s alleged support is akin to some rivers, to deep to walk in, not nearly deep enough to swim in. Put in other terms, 0.25″ deep x 1 mile wide. Unfortunately, it is the depth not the width that counts.

Christie is a Fascist Republi-CANT. Sadly, there are many like him.

You better avoid N.J. if you are carrying a weapon. Otherwise, you may find yourself in the same pile of dodo as she is without your maxipad.
N.J. is a filthy place anyway and full of hoodlums with guns.

Born and raised in New Jersey and there is great beauty and there are incredible people there. I’ve also lived in California and Massachusetts and the same goes for them. Don’t hate the land or the people, man, focus on the real problem! It’s just those few people that NEED to control others that make it all look bad. Focus on them and not on the rest of us!

Randy the fixer – Problem is the people keep voting in the POS that do this. Says something about them doesn’t it?

By that logic, because Pres. Obama was elected TWICE, and HRC may be elected next, then that says something about all Americans. I agree the people get the leaders they deserve, but you cant discount millions of good, God fearing patriots that still reside in those leftist states.

Sgt. Saxxon:

The elections of Obama to the presidency, what about his election to the Illinois legislature, and to the U.S. senate, does say something about a majority of involved voters, and it is likely nothing good. A lot of people voted against him, it wasn’t a sufficient margin though. As for Clinton, one of them should have been enough, though we will have to wait a bit to see and or hear the effects of the electorates on that.

Are the voters of N.J. so bemused that they cannot see the potential for serious problems, spelled general loss of rights, a result of the legislative antics of the things they elect? Have they no interest in such considerations, guns aside, or will they awake when all is lost, wondering how did that ever happen? By the way, the comments/questions above raised are applicable to a number of posts that have appeared here. Also,it is not my intent to criticize any individual,rather I merely pose a question that comes to mind.

NJ is just a ‘TEST BED’ for what both CANADA and AUSTRALIA are now.
ONLY 49 more state to CONTROL.

What else can you say about New Jersey but Sieg Heil? Disgusting that an American would be treated this way by other Americans. Those cops truly are a disappoint to the country and our ideals as a people, by performing as flunkies of a state regime run amok. They are an insult to good police officers everywhere.

Indiana is not worse, in any way, shape, or form. We are a very pro gun state. What happened to her would never have happened here. In fact, Indiana recognizes ALL State’s licenses to carry.

Where the heck do you get that bs? I am resident of Indiana, carry my P90 Ruger in Fobus tactical holster every where. ZERO issues. Now maybe you meant ILLINOIS as they gave draconian observance of 2A rights. Get your facts right. Heck my grandfather used to carry 3 or 4 shotguns, hundreds if reloaded shells etc all with zero issues.

Agreed! And I grew up there, so I’m very familiar with the place. I think we should serve NJ an eviction notice. The powers that be there might feel more at home in, say, Russia or China.

I do not agree. We should not have to run and hide in bastions of civil liberty. It is time that we start getting out and voting, write our elected officials, lobbying at all levels of government, and supporting people who have had their rights trampled. If it was one of you guys in this article, would you want people to say it’s time to boycott a state or would you like them to rally around you and support you and your natural rights of self-protection? As a community, we need to get over the urge to flee from tyranny.

I would not even pi$$ in NJ, in order to deny my nitrogen to their soil! Same goes for MA, MD, NY, CA and DC. I just refuse to spend a single penny in any state that does not recognize the Bill of Rights in its totality.
