19 states — Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, West Virginia and Wyoming — are ganging up on the Garden State to challenge the state’s draconian concealed carry law.
It’s putting us in the unfortunate position of rooting against our own state’s legal position, Save Jerseyans… what other options is there? Our state government continues to embarrass us! Speaking out, loud and proud, is our only recourse.
New details from Fox News:
“The Wyoming Attorney General’s Office, acting as lawyer for Wyoming and the other states, on Wednesday asked the Supreme Court to grant a hearing to John M. Drake and others who are challenging a recent appeals court ruling.
A three-judge panel of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last summer ruled against Drake’s challenge to a provision in New Jersey law that says people seeking permits to carry a concealed firearm must prove to police that they have a justifiable need.
The brief from Wyoming Attorney General’s Office says that Wyoming and the other states are concerned that if the appeals court ruling stands, it could threaten their less-restrictive concealed carry laws.”
New Jersey Second Amendment enthusiasts have long argued against their state’s concealed carry law; the NRA recently and unexpectedly joined the Sussex County complainant’s side, asserting that “[l]aw-abiding citizens have a constitutional right to defend themselve beyond their front doorstep.”
I’d like to know how ANYONE with half of a brain could argue with that logic…
Even the liberal 9th Circuit is questioning anti-concealed carry laws. On Thursday, it ruled in a 2 to 1 decision that “San Diego County violates the Constitution’s Second Amendment by requiring residents to show ‘good cause'” prior “to obtain a concealed carry permit.” Stay tuned…
