New Jersey Democrats Defy U.S. Supreme Court 2A Decision They Don’t Like

United States Supreme Court

Bearing Arms’, John Petrolino recently wrote, “The unconstitutional bill that’s been proposed in New Jersey is a run-around to allowing the peasants to be lawfully armed. The bill directly tells Justice Thomas to ram it up his own posterior.”

This insult is not a surprise coming from a state government run by Democrat Governor Phil “I-Wasn’t-Thinking-Of-The-Bill-Of-Rights” Murphy. New Jersey, home to hundreds of battles and skirmishes during the American Revolution, has long given up on the cause of liberty those patriots who spilled blood in Garden State soil fought and died for. 

Spitting in the face of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down New York’s requirements that citizens “justify a need to the government” to exercise their God-given right to self-defense guaranteed by the Second Amendment, New Jersey Democrats are offering measures A4769 and S3214

The measures create an extensive, prohibitive list of where state gun owners cannot bear their arms, essentially nullifying the SCOTUS’ “Bruen” decision.

Still, the anti-gun rights Democrat lawmakers’ incompetence may be a bright light in the darkness. Petrolino wrote, “The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC) recently uncovered an embarrassing flaw in the bill.”

Scoffing at Bruen, the measure violates the Constitution in many ways, including, increasing fees, mandating insurance and burdensome new training, overusing “sensitive places” exclusions, and even outlawing carrying firearms inside your car. 

Again, not surprising in a state that until this year ignored LEOSA, a federal law signed by President George Bush specifically to protect active/retired police officers by allowing them to carry firearms in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
