Gov. Murphy Attacks What Little there is of Right to Carry in New Jersey ~VIDEO

New Jersey – -( At a recent “gun safety” announcement, Governor Murphy, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal launched a full scale attack on the right of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves with a firearm outside the home, otherwise known as right to carry.

Murphy announced an intention to reverse Governor Christie's executive order allowing those facing serious threats to qualify for a handgun carry permit, and to challenge any federal action on right to carry reciprocity.

Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs Executive Director Scott Bach slammed the move.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly held that police have no duty to protect individual citizens, which means you're on your own in an emergency. It is an outrage that the same government that abandons its duty to keep us safe is also working to prevent us from protecting ourselves. Governor Murphy will have the blood of more innocents like Carol Bowne on his hands.”

Bach continued, “New Jersey is going to have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into legal recognition of the right to defend yourself outside the home. Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs is more than happy to oblige and will be at the forefront of the movement to restore this fundamental right.”

    1. No matter how many gun control bills this sorry excuse for a Governor signs,
      violence will continue to rise because the criminal element ignores the laws.

    2. @Aardvark I read your comment about YOUTube taking the comments down for this subject. Maybe you caused it because you said something about defending the 2A. Youtube is a leftist paradise like twitter has become. You know, keep the information away from the people so they can dumb everyone down. They believe in keeping telling the same lies and some will believe them.

    3. All we can hope for is that the Gov of NJ finds himself suddenly in a position where he realizes that at that precise second he desperately needs a gun and he does not have one on his person or he is without his hired guns

      1. Looking at the AG, I’ll bet he has a couple hundred million of his former countrymen who are getting ready to invade us now, and he is doing his best to get us all disarmed first. And as for the governor, he is most likely thinking about the $2000 per head he will get for every new invader. He has big plans for his bank account, no doubt. He can certainly go onto the TRAITOR list. As for the poor woman whose son was killed, probably done by MS13 criminals joyriding thru her neighborhood with a snootful of coke.

    4. There is no doubt all three of them have armed guards for protection against honest citizens. The criminals wouldn’t bother to attack them because the criminals need more than pocket change to keep business going. Honest citizens pay for their misuse of tax money.

    5. Ask the Sikh if he has a knife in his pocket while they are announcing taking away law abiding citizens ‘ right of self protection

    6. Let’s face it: Christie was elected only because the voters couldn’t tell him from a real Democrat. The people of NJ can’t see anything wrong with being defenseless. They LIKE the way things are. If they weren’t, they’d vote the gun-grabbers out, so Good Luck, Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, you’re fighting an uphill battle and you’re going to need all the luck you can find.

      From what I know of NJ residents, the bulk of them are too stupid to understand that they are (figuratively) shooting themselves in the foot. Eastern Establishment Elites like to point at Alabama as the home of the toothless redneck. Clearly they haven’t been to Little Egg Harbor…

    7. You guys need to comment on the YouTube page directly, otherwise these tyrants won’t be able to read it.

      Turns out I was the first comment on this video, second dislike.

      Get to typing, boys.

      1. They have disabled comments on the Youtube video. You can still go and hit dislike, but that’s all. Apparently the communist governor of NJ doesn’t want to be called out on his anti-Constitutional executive order that violates the God-given rights of the law abiding citizens there.

      2. CORRECTION: I just went back to the Youtube video, and comments are up again. Here’s mine:
        NJ Governor and AG are violating the US Constitution of the United States, the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND!

        “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

        1. Ok, I should have been more clear on my post. Yes, the quote is from the Declaration of Independence, but makes clear the founders intent. The Constitution was written with these principals in mind, and became the Supreme Law of the Land. It is the Constitution that this governor is violating.

    8. You folks in New Jersey elected these three stooges to office and you should have known what they stood for so if your unhappy with their policies get organized with other gun lovers and freedom lovers and recall these clowns.

      1. We tried that with the senate president Sweeney seen here in the video. Came 6000 signatures short (needed like 100k+). The other two just got there.

    9. How can you RESTORE a right? Either the right exists or it doesn’t. I say it exists. The “rules” IE “laws” of the “state of New Jersey, whatever that is, (actually some psychopaths appointed by the brain dead lemmings via voting, are what make up the “state”) VIOLATE the right to defend yourself, thus making those “laws” invalid from the day they were written by the presumed “leaders” of that “state”, whatever that is. The way you exercise that right is to be willing to shoot whoever violates it, and yes, that would mean “law enforcement” who are obviously in violation of their oaths if they are willing to cage you for a non violent act. Remember, those were King Georges “Law enforcement” officers at Concord that the colonists shot in the face with their muskets. So, you want the job? Be willing to die to defend the “state” whatever that is, from the PEOPLE who have the RIGHT to keep and bear arms. And if you as a person defend yourself and die in the process, guess what? You will actually have died fighting for freedom! Unlike all those men and women who have died in the middle east fighting for the oil cartels and banksters.

    10. Murphy and his Dem groupies all a bunch of very sick people . So many sale signs in New Jersey me included . Murphys violating Federal Immigration Laws making NJ a Sanctuary State , and he will surely FIGHT any Federal Right to Carry Laws . Attorney General Sessions needs some letters NJ Gun owners concerning Sanctuary Phil .
