NJ2AS and Roubian file federal lawsuit against Gov. Murphy

NJ2AS Sues Murphy
The NJ2AF is suing New Jersey Governor Murphy again.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) and Alex “Alejandro” Roubian have formally filed a lawsuit against Governor Murphy on Tuesday, April 28th, 2020. Copies of the complaint and related documents can be found by clicking below:

In the complaint, NJ2AS and Alejandro contend, Governor Murphy, unnamed staff, and the New Jersey Press Association have collectively conspired to bar a reporter from accessing press conferences and public information. The complainants further cite that the action is direct and malicious due to the fact NJ2AS filed a lawsuit against Governor Murphy in March and prevailed.

NJ2AS has complied with the New Jersey Press Association’s guidelines to attend press conferences and had attended numerous events with Governor Murphy, and even several during Governor Christie’s administration. When specific questions began to be asked of Governor Murphy during the Covid-19 press conferences, he showed frustration towards reporter Alex “Alejandro” Roubian and implied publicly that he wasn’t a real journalist and had no business attending the conferences. On the subsequent press conference, a representative of Governor Murphy’s office denied Mr. Roubian access to the event and armed State Police troopers forced him to leave the premises. Mr. Roubian was subsequently kicked out in the same fashion two other days for a total of three times.

“The Governor’s actions in barring NJ2AS and Mr. Roubian from a public forum such as a press conference is not only inappropriate; it clearly violates their First Amendment rights and the oath of office the Governor took to uphold the constitution. Our First Amendment rights must be protected and the lawsuit filed by NJ2AS and Mr. Roubian are paramount not just to them but to the public at large.” said Mr. Roubian’s legal council, Albert Rescinio.

Requests for public records by NJ2AS into the arbitrary nature of the Governor’s banning and behavior returned no existence of any formal guidelines. Having consistently followed the New Jersey Press Association’s rules and attending several press events in the past, NJ2AS and Mr. Roubian are finding their First Amendment rights under attack alongside their Second Amendment rights. This is the second formal lawsuit filed by NJ2AS against members of the government since the Covid-19 Executive Orders enacted by Governor Murphy in March.

Sue him back to the stone age. While your at it sue anyone else who went along with delaying or denying any American citizen their GOD given, constitutionally protected, unalienable RIGHT to keep and bear arms. Why has this man not been arrested for tyranny and treason? Enforcement and the judicial branch had better get moving on it lest someone votes him completely out of office.

Arm up, carry on.

Maybe the recent round of ” whaddaya meam I cant buy my first gun…..” will start to change a few things. I wont get my hopes up because, after all, this IS new jersey and the attention span is VERY short. So is the memory.

And when you win this case, SUE for all the expenses brought about by the ILLEGAL and ANTI-Constitutional actions of the NJ mayor and his office personnel and even the police who kept you out of the PUBLIC MEETING.

Governor Murphy is Proudly Progressive, and he has mentioned that in Jan.2018 before he was sworn in as Governor of NJ. Murphy doesn’t like the 2A or gun owners, he is anti gun and proud of it. He like other progressive/leftist don’t care one bit about the Constitution, or Bill of Rights. They pick and choose which Rights they will like or dislike. I know living in NJ. NJ has a 2 to 1 ratio of Democrats to Republicans, that are registered to vote, and this is a blue state. There are Republican here and in some parts of the… Read more »

The Punk Murphy loves guns, the guns he hides behind while he is stomping on your Rights. If he truly hated guns he would immediately dismiss ALL of his armed protection. Ok for me but not for thee.

@Dubi, Yep, the whole thing in a nut shell is “… and armed State Police troopers forced him to…” And that is what the libtards have planned for the entire nation, if they ever get back into power.

Sounds like what Obama did numerous times. Any journalist who didn’t “toe the line” with softball questions but rather dared to ask difficult or uncomfortable questions was barred from access to press conferences.

Who is voting for politicians like this NJ Governor who are so clearly tone deaf to the Constitution and values of a free society? It’s hard to believe people willingly vote to nullify their individual rights–rights no other country acknowledges. I personally believe massive voter fraud is putting these anti-American socialists in office.

There was a 103% voter turn out NO ONE was charged with election fraud!!
There have been some convictions but not enough!
Tony Evers beat Scott Walker by 29,227‬ votes, 1.1% There were 40,000 voters without an address. In the 2020 spring elections it was not allowed to remove those voters by the liberal court.
