New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)- For the third time, NJ paid our legal fees for another Second Amendment legal victory. This brings the total that New Jersey paid to NJ2AS $230,000 in legal awards.

In June 2019 the New Jersey State Police once again lost against NJ2AS in an 8-year-long legal battle to receive a copy of their investigative manual that is used while investigating firearm applicants.

Shortly after, New Jersey, once again, lost a motion to have the State pay for our legal fees. The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) was awarded $87,500 for legal fees.

In 2016, The Record stated: “The most expensive case in the documents reviewed by The Record involved the Second Amendment Society seeking firearms regulations, costing the administration $101,626.”

NJ2AS President Alex “Alejandro” Roubian proudly stated “NJ2AS will stop at nothing, ever, until all unconstitutional infringements on our right to keep and bear arms in NJ are gone. We will seek out and expose every violation, every person who is complicit in those violations and every government entity that participates and/or covers them up. We will bring into the light the negative impact of NJ’s poorly worded and over-criminalized legislation. We will use any and all legal means available to do so.”

Frank Fiamingo, NJ2AS’ former President (2010-2015) that helped spearhead this lawsuit stated “I would like to formally express my gratitude to Attorney Richard Gutman and the members, leaders and advisers of the NJ2AS that made this significant win possible. The attorney General of NJ and the NJ State Police have been put on notice that the firearms owners of NJ will not sit back while their individual rights are constantly being trampled. It may take time to fight the unfair and unconstitutional behavior of the three branches of New Jersey’s government, but we are in this fight for the long run and this win is only the beginning. Under President Alexander Roubian, the members and legal advisers of the NJ2AS intend to file additional lawsuits which we fully believe will be successful.”

“We continue to ask for your support as the NJ2AS moves forward in the quest to further the legitimate right of individuals to keep and bear arms wherever they have the right to be. This includes the right of the individual to carry firearms for defensive purposes.”

Governor Murphy’s administration did not respond for comment.

Paid with tax payers money is not a victory. When we need to happen is to lock up the politicians and bureaucrats who violated their oath of office for attacking the 2nd Amendment. Make them personally responsible for spending tax payers money to create unlawful gun restrictions, court costs and restitutions to the people. When it costs them nothing, it means nothing.

“NJ” doesn’t care how much they have to pay, it’s not their money. It’s taxpayer money of which “they” have an endless supply. $230K is less than what they spend on toilet paper at the state capitol.

A lot of Politicians have found out that the supply in not endless. NJ is run by Mob rule and corruption

Hit them hard and from every angle with litigation and protest. Tax payers will soon get it. This is what really irritated me about NRA’s approach for years. They did not demand legal fees from governments who infringed and then lost in court. But they demand more and more from us. Make these losers pay for their mistakes. The same tax payers who vote for the same progressives who infringe upon our rights need to get the bill.

I agree. They should be litigated at every turn and in every state. If NJ chooses to not recognize my legal carry permit then they are banning me from going to their state while exercising my God-given right. The suit should be in my home state and let their attorneys travel here to defend it. When San Fransisco called all NRA members terrorists, they should have been sued for slander in the other 49 states. NRA needs money to try cases then get it through the slander suits.
