New Jersey State Rifle Club Sues To Overturn Handgun Carry-Killer Law!

New Jersey – -( At the exact moment NJ Governor Phill Murphy was signing illegal carry-killer legislation into law earlier today, the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC) was filing an epic federal lawsuit seeking to swiftly and decisively block the blatantly unconstitutional new measure.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs is also seeking a restraining order to immediately halt the implementation of the new law while the case proceeds.

Embedded below, you can see a copy of the complaint filed in the case and monitor ongoing new case filings as they happen. ANJRPC legal counsel Dan Schmutter is spearheading the lawsuit.

The new law flagrantly and intentionally disrupts both the Second Amendment and the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bruen decision upholding the right of honest citizens to carry firearms for personal protection. Now that New Jersey can no longer block the issuance of carry permits, the state is trying to change what it means to have a carry permit in the first place. The new law bans carry in most common public places, mandates non-existent liability insurance, and significantly increases permit fees to prevent lower-income citizens from exercising their rights.

“By signing this legislation, Gov. Murphy has effectively ended any chance of ever being elected to higher office outside of New Jersey, and has confirmed that the Constitution is indeed ‘above his pay grade,'” said ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach. “Not only will this legislation go down in flames, but the Murphy administration will end up paying the very substantial legal costs of gun owners to bring it down.”

A restraining order is being sought imminently, seeking to halt the implementation of the new law while the case proceeds. Please stay tuned for further updates and alerts. If you are not already subscribed to these email alerts, you can sign up at no cost at the links below.

The constitution is above Phil Murphy’s kindergarten comprehension level let alone say his pay grade . What a complete idiot


They won’t stop because the taxpayers get the legal bills. If they had to pay them, it would come to a screeching halt.


a bunch of these clowns need to be in jail ,

Monkey Mouse



ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach was wrong.
it will the taxpayers of the state that will be paying for this unconstitutional legislation, not the murphy administration. if only it were that way and these tyrannical bastards would have to pay out of their own pockets.


Court games are good, but how many people in New Jersey can strap on their weapons and conduct the business of life today? Yesterday? A decade ago?



It started way back before a decade ago. In fact, way before the 1960s etc..Remember “Gunfight at the OK Corral”? Yeah, Dodge City – and why? Because the “Earp Brothers” decided to ban carrying of firearms inside the town limit. And that was not the only place..historical search of policies going back to the 1880s showed a large number of Eastern Towns and Cities that began “banning” open carrying of firearms. It’s nothing new. The fat privileged, the pathetic feminized losers that call themselves politicians have been against the 2nd Amendment going back 150 years. Why? Because they are afraid… Read more »


So true and the facts show that gun control hasn’t worked for those 150 years and the answer to the problem is bring back the old wild west and make the USA a federally mandated constitutional carry country and no states can opt out.
