Christie Grants Pardons to Three Caught Up by NJ Gun Laws

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Wednesday pardoned three individuals from out of state that have run afoul of the Garden State’s draconian gun laws in recent years.

Granted executive clemency were Todd Doering of Lansdale, Pa.; Brian Lee Fletcher of Buntner, N.C.; and Elizabeth Jane Griffith of Daytona Beach, Fla.; all of whom picked up gun charges while either passing through or visiting New Jersey, as reported by NJ.com.

Doering was arrested in 2010 for carrying his otherwise legal Glock handgun loaded with hollow-points, which are illegal under New Jersey law.

Fletcher, in the state working as part of a disaster relief effort in 2014, was arrested when he volunteered to a New Jersey police officer that he had a firearm in his vehicle.

U.S. Park Police arrested Griffith this summer after she was found to be carrying a gun while waiting for a ferry from New Jersey to Ellis Island.
