Anti-Gun Legislators Move to Quash Gov. Christie’s Gun Reforms

Undeterred by the Garden State’s failed, draconian gun laws, Senator Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-37) has quickly schemed to block Governor Chris Christie’s recent executive action.

A few weeks ago, we reported that the Attorney General issued a directive that took steps toward fixing some of the rampant abuses with New Jersey gun laws.

The executive action clarified the “justifiable need” standard for concealed carry permit issuance and the reasonable “deviation” language with regard to firearm transportation.

The directive also compels local law enforcement to comply with existing state law and halt the flagrant permitting abuses with respect to FID cards and purchase permits.

Senate Concurrent Resolution 101 would block the Governor’s executive action on the incremental improvements to the state’s concealed carry standard.

Anti-gun lawmakers, led by Sen. Weinberg, have been crystal clear that they oppose self-defense for ordinary citizens.  More importantly, they completely oppose concealed carry in New Jersey.
