    Good day and I hope this email finds you well. On our chat I have had a number of questions regarding what's going on and I wanted to send out a note to reassure you. If you are not aware, since the "election" social media companies have been hard at work silencing those they simply do not agree with. Twitter has banned over 70,000 accounts and FaceBook is purging posts that have key terms like "Stop the steal." Today, the purge hit the firearms community and a site that pretty much everyone is familiar with, AR15.com. Unfortunately, this is not surprising and anyone in the domain community has known for some time that GoDaddy is Anti-Gun and Anti Freedom of Speech. So while I am irritated that GoDaddy took these actions with AR15.com, I am more surprised that it was somehow a shock to someone who should have known better. AR15.com was registered at GoDaddy, and far more disturbing, is still having it's website hosted on Amazon's AWS. Just last night, Amazon chose to cut off services to Parler, which ran on the very same Amazon Web Services' cloud computing platform. How Does this Impact NJGF and How Are We Exposed? Since DAY 1, over 12 years ago, being at the mercy of anti-gun companies has been a concern of mine. As such, the domain has ALWAYS been registered and managed at either an offshore web registrar, Internet.bs, registered in the Bahamas, or, and for the last few years, at Epik.com, a registrar owned by a Freedom loving, CEO Rob Monster, someone I have come to known fairly well over the prior few years. Before Gab.com, Parler.com and now AR15.com found Epik.com, we have been using them for NJGunForums.com registration along with many other domains in my firearms portfolio. The company is strongly in support of the First and Second Amendments and I do not have any concerns there. In either case, if there is trouble on the horizon, the next step would be to register the domain at an offshore registrar. Hosting wise, there is a weeeeeee bit more exposure. NJGF is hosted on a dedicated server, with a host we have used for the last 8 years or so. I have had multiple discussions with the host over the years regarding firearms and they are completely okay with the firearms community. More than that, we are not on a "cloud" hosting platform where the data is all over the place, the data is on a server, backed up to two drivers. We DO use Amazon for cheap backup storage however, however an outage there, would have no impact on the community. As a backup, I maintain a number of backup hosts offshore as well, currently Norway, a country that values internet freedom, and will look into adding a second in either Switzerland or Bulgaria. In the event the current host would have an issue with the firearms community, it would take a few hours to transition to an offshore hosting account. Many people have asked about what they can do, and why we have "Premier Memberships" on the forum, this is why. Bottom Line While I am deeply concerned about the "cancel culture," I am not concerned about being in the position that AR15.com is today, and what many other firearms communities may find themselves in tomorrow. For the last 10 years, these concerns were top of mind and it is why we block traffic from most of Asia, and have the domain registered and servers hosted where we do. If you want to support the community and help with the additional backup servers, please consider becoming a Premier Member. You can do that here... https://www.njgunforums.com/forum/index.php?/store/category/1-premier-membership/ If you have domains left over at GoDaddy, and want to tell them to pound sand, I highly recommend Epik.com, and it is where I have the vast majority of my domains registered, please use our link, http://slav.li/epik Thanks! -Maks

    My name is Ed Farmer . . . This went on Facebook this morning . . . There will be a more formal announcement later. It's official . . . I am a candidate for the New Jersey State Assembly. I am running in Legislative District 6 which includes the towns of Berlin Township, Cherry Hill, Collingswood, Gibbsboro, Haddon, Haddonfield, Hi-Nella, Maple Shade, Merchantville, Oaklyn, Pennsauken, Somerdale, Stratford, Tavistock, Voorhees. Our state government is broken. The governor makes up the rules as he goes. Our courts rewrite laws as they see fit. Our legislature sits there fat, dumb and happy that they can escape responsibility for anything that happens. We have automatic fuel tax increases. We have virtually automatic income tax increases. Property taxes in New Jersey are the highest in the nation with no sign of slowed growth. The government grows and requires more of your money while they assume that you can do with less. It's time for the people to take control back from the politicians. It's time for the legislature to stand up and take responsibility for what has been going on. This CAN be done, but we all need to take control and send a message to Trenton by sending new messengers. If you live in the district, I need your help and support. If you do not, there are others who need you, but I will be happy to hear from all of you. A campaign page will be set up soon, but please don't hesitate to reach out starting today.

    My views changed considerably. 1). why would anyone need to own an AR-15, it really is just an efficient tool, not the bad black sheep the media makes it out to be. Now I think, everyone should own one. 2). never understood why one person would need more than 100 rounds of ammo. Now I’m nervous with only having 1600 rounds of .45 acp. 3). why does anyone need a gun, once I felt someone could possible tell me I couldn’t own one to protect my family, I couldn’t sit back and take that mentality. Now I feel, everyone should be armed. 4). why does anyone need more than one gun, it is no different than any other hobby, I have multiple golf driver, I have 6 different golf balls I use, I have multiple bowling balls for different types of lanes. I have multiple guns for different uses 5). laws! We’re a needed thing and correct to be implemented. Now, Jesus Christ is an adjustable stock really an evil thing, I look more closely at politicians and their stand on the second amendment while researching. you could say my views on guns have done almost a complete 360.

    I was a very happy man. My wonderful Italian girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. There was only one little thing bothering me....It was her beautiful younger sister. My prospective sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight mini skirts, and generally was bra-less. She would regularly bend down when she was near me, and I always got more than a nice view. It had to be deliberate. Because she never did it when she was near anyone else. One day her "little" sister called and asked me to come over to check the wedding invitations. She was alone when I arrived, and she whispered to me that she had feelings and desires for me that she couldn't overcome. She told me that she wanted me just once before I got married and committed my life to her sister. Well, I was in total shock, and couldn't say a word. She said, "I'm going upstairs to my bedroom, and if you want one last wild fling, just come up and get me." I was stunned and frozen in shock as I watched her go up the stairs. I stood there for a moment, then turned and made a beeline straight to the front door. I opened the door, and headed straight towards my car. Lo... And behold, my entire future family was standing outside, all clapping! With tears in his eyes, my father-in-law put down his shotgun and hugged me and said, "We are very happy that you have passed our little test. We couldn't ask for a better man for our daughter. Welcome to the family." And the moral of this story is: Always keep your condoms in your car!

    I received the following picture and text in an email this week. I thought it made some interesting points. However I also removed the trailing political commentary. My interest is in the rifle. A hundred and fourteen years ago, in 1907...our great grandparents were first able to buy the rifle pictured. The semi-auto Winchester Model 1907. This is a gun they could buy from a Sears catalogue and have delivered via US Post. It was/ is a semi-automatic, high powered centerfire rifle, with detachable, high capacity magazine. About 400,000 semi-automatic rifles were produced before WW2. Civilians had hundreds of thousands of these for 40 years, while US soldiers were still being issued old fashioned bolt action rifles. The 1907 fired just as fast as an AR15 or AK47 and the bullet (.351 Winchester) was actually larger than those fired by the more modern looking weapons. The ONLY functional difference between the 1907 and a controversial and much feared AR15 is the modern black plastic stock. The semi-auto so-called "assault rifle" is 114 years old. It isn't new in any way. The semi auto rifle was not a weapon of war. The government MADE IT a weapon of war 40 years after civilians had them. The semi-auto can be safely owned by civilians. The proof is that literally 3 generations of adults owned and used them responsibly and no one ever even noticed.

    Let's put this MYTH to rest, FOREVER & RIGHT NOW! You may or may not be aware, so for those that AREN'T here goes: I transport weapons registered to a man that's been DEAD since 1982! Upon my father's passing, my mother laid his entire modest collection out on display on the dinning room table for her three offspring to divvy-up. NO PAPERWORK! Cause that's how it was done back then! Am I supposed to go dig them both up (Mom died in '95) and ask them where's the P2P's? I've been "behind the trigger" for nearly half a century. The totality of what I've done and what I know could make a good book. And OPEN LOTS OF EYES to the self-inflicted harassments we continually endure from those that THINK they "know" things...the big one being applying FOPA interstate transport regulations to intrA-state (within NJ) transportation. The fact is the current law doesn't even say that your Yellow Card has to be IN YOUR POSSESSION, it merely states you have to be granted one to be in compliance of the exception / exemption you're transporting under.... ~R

    My home is a securely locked container. And I use trans-separate ammo-even though it appears to be loaded, the ammo identifies as being in a separate container.

    There is no NJ statute that defines a knife by size. If you carry a knife every day you just need an explainable lawful purpose. There is no limit to what lawful purpose you use, so long is it is not self defense. My knife is used to open boxes frequently and there is tape residue on it which could be proof if it is ever challenged. Your knife has a seat belt cutting blade at the back of the handle - perfectly lawful in case of emergency.

    Courtesy of my email. I was at the mall yesterday and walked into the book store. I asked if they had Trump's new book on how to deport illegal aliens. The clerk said "Get the fuck out of here and don't come back!". And I replied "Yes, that's the one. Do you have it in paperback?".

    After 17 years moved to sunny Florida - goodbye forever to: pinned muzzle brakes, pinned stocks, 10 round magazines, NJFIC, once a month handgun purchase and handgun purchase permits, prohibited AW list, prohibited SBR, Mr. Murphy, Mr. Grewal and anybody like them.... I can't believe how I put up with all that cr*p for so long. I am going to miss Cherry Ridge. My empathy to NJ gun owners - keep up the fight. Roger and out.

    My grandfather, who I was named after, was born in Paris, Arkansas. I’m honestly not sure what year. I never paid much attention to that sort of thing. It was somewhere around 1920. He moved to St. Louis and met my grandmother, a second-generation Italian. They conceived my father in 1941 and my grandfather shipped off in the Army before he was born. Although his military records were lost in a fire, we know a little bit. He was a radio operator in the infantry. He was in North Africa, Sicily and Italy which means that he may have served under General Patton. We don’t know. When the war in Europe ended, he was marching through northern Italy toward Berlin with the intention of finishing the job. After Hitler committed suicide in his bunker, my grandfather turned toward the French coast with orders to get on a ship and head to the South Pacific to help finish off the Japanese. Before he boarded the ship, Truman authorized the dropping of two atomic bombs on major Japanese cities and the Japanese surrendered soon thereafter. My grandfather still climbed on board the ship but this time it was to bring him to the United States. Ships and trains brought him back to his wife and child in St. Louis. My father was now three years old and remembers meeting his father for the first time. Seeing him walk down an alley, still in uniform, carrying his duffle bag. Sixty plus years later, my son (also named after my grandfather) and I stood at the same spot, in the same alley in St. Louis talking to my father on the phone. The third and the fourth talking to Junior where he first met Senior. After the war, my grandfather worked for RCA in St. Louis. He used to talk about having built a projection TV in the late 1940’s. They used to test it at night by projecting images on the GE building across the street. He also said that it probably produced so many X-Rays that it wasn’t safe to be in the room with it. RCA took him and his family from St. Louis, to Jackson, Mississippi, to Albuquerque, New Mexico installing radio towers. They had two more kids a long the way. My Aunt Betty and my Uncle Fred. Their last move took them to Somerdale, New Jersey in 1954. He worked at RCA’s broadcast division in Camden until he retired in the mid-1980’s. Their fourth child, my Uncle Dave was born in 1960. Just 10 months before I was born myself. My grandfather went to work every day. Took his family on long vacations around the country and filled the family room in his house with books about World War II. He also had a penchant for Southern Comfort and obscene limericks at family gatherings. Usually after the young ones went to sleep. He never talked about the war with anybody in the family. Maybe with some of his contemporaries but we don’t know. One of my great regrets is that I never sat down and made him tell me about the war. What he saw there and what he did there. He passed away in 1994. I was 33 years old and should have known better. I’m sure that some in my family could correct things in this story but this is the way that I remember it so this is the way that I tell it. I always cry when I tell this story and this time isn’t any different. We all have great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and other family members who have served. We all have our stories and our memories. I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and, most of all, thoughtful, Memorial Day weekend. Remember it isn’t all burgers, dogs and parades. It’s much more.

    Unless I'm mistaken, with an FID one can drive around with long guns in the car, cased or uncased, 24/7. The laws of directly to and from the range refer only to handguns (and hollow point ammo).

    same...my buddy and i had steady people we did yard work for. winter time was our money season. easily would make over 150 each storm. sadly todays kids are not like us. kids stay inside cause mommy and daddy will do it, or just hire someone else to do it. example is my neighbor across the street. Both of his college age boys, who are home now with remote learning, weren't outside helping him shovel. my boys took our snow blower over to him when we we were done and did his walkway and lower driveway. took them maybe 25 minutes and saved him hours of work. as a thank you, he offered them each $20, but they turned it down saying it was expected for them help neighbors. Proud dad moment for me.

    So . . . Do we like regulation when is helps us and only condemn it when it hurts us? It's shouldn't be up to the Texas AG to interfere in private transactions between citizens and legal businesses. It isn't "gouging" if the two parties agree on a price. Prices are set by supply and demand and shouldn't be held in place by those in the state house, congress or the White House.

    Hey all. So we are about a year in from first getting our FID cards. Our current collection consists of the following: Sig P320X Compact RXP (9mm) Canik TP9SFX (9mm) Smith & Wesson 686-6 Plus (.357 Magnum) Kimber Custom LW Shadow Ghost (.45 acp) RIA Rock Series 1911 FS Matte Nickel (.45 acp) Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 (.22LR) Stag Arms Stag 15 Tactical (5.56/.223) RIA AG Pump Action Shotgun (12ga) We are still looking into a nice Bolt-Action and/or possibly an AK variant. Something with some wood furniture would be nice.

    Bob Viden is a long time friend of Senator Sweeney! Even though he represented us in the NRA, Viden always maintained his stance against concealed carry in NJ! He has repeatedly stated that NJ is too densely populated to allow CCW and that we would quickly become the wild west if CCW were allowed! Ever since I learned this fact, I have never given Bob a single Penney ever again. I never will!

    I won't let this day pass without acknowledging this important holiday... yes, we can celebrate the person whose intrepid journey brought Western civilization to this land...at the same time, giving a deserving nod to the many Italian-Americans who've contributed to this great nation. Let's not politicize this thread since it's outside of 1A... just leave it as a positive affirmation of ethnic & national pride... in line with the original intent of this Federal Holiday! Ciao!

    It's been fun---but---its time to go--hello Fl and Palm Beach County. We have had enough of NJ's insane and ever increasing property taxes, municipal assessments, income tax, sales tax, internet market facilitator tax, business taxes, etc--with really no end in sight. I have also had enough of NJ's constant passage of anti-gun laws which makes a difficult situation even more difficult. I expect even further restrictions in NJ in the future. I do see right to carry relief from the Supremes in 22-23 but even then it will be years before it is fully implemented here--because NJ will simply enact expansive laws applying the sensitive place doctrine where carry will be prohibited I do wish all of you the best and do intend to check in from time to time to see what's happening.

    Defense Distributed sued Grewal in TX. TX court ruled no jurisdiction over NJ AG. Defense Distributed appealed to 5th Circuit. 5th Circuit disagreed with lower court, said yes, Grewal can be sued in TX, remanded to lower court for trial. Grewal appealed 5th circuit decision to SCOTUS. SCOTUS denied cert. 5th circuit decision stands. Trial will proceed in TX, where I'm sure Grewal's attorneys will be warmly received for putting the screws to a Texas company. Somehow I don't think we'll be getting a tweet about this on the official NJ OAG twitter account.

    I disagree! I see one critical difference here... on this lawsuit, the main 2A orgs in the state are finally working together, without any notable exceptions! This is a great development. It's one that I figured might be coming, when some months ago Alex Roubian was featured on Anthony Colandro's radio show, but nonetheless, I'm glad to see it's come to fruition. I'm hoping this partnership holds together and becomes a permanent 2A strategy within the state. So, sure, I'm happy to see the lawsuit itself.. but I'm even happier at the collaborative union the announcement reveals. It's smart... very smart!

    Forgive me for not jumping in on this earlier, I’m out of town at the moment. I am the seller, and I had recommended J&J Gunworks. He is local to me, and I have bought 2 firearms through him before. His transfer fee then was $45, and I didn’t think it was too unreasonable. Last one I bought was a shotgun in Nov 2019. Frankly, I was pretty taken aback when I heard what J&J was charging for the transfer this time. Had I known he had doubled his transfer fee, I wouldn’t have recommended him. That’s ridiculous. I’d have to go back and check my purchase records, I don’t know if he charged me a 3% fee for a credit card. The ammo thing, well honestly, I kind of get it. He doesn’t have much, and he wants to be able to sell it to people purchasing firearms from him. To me, that’s a reasonable point. @axeman_g, I’ll reach out to you when I get back in town. This never sat right with me.

    George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River, which occurred on the night of December 25–26, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War, was the first move in a surprise attack organized by George Washington against Hessian forces (German auxiliaries in the service of the British) in Trenton, New Jersey, on the morning of December 26.

    T'was the month of Christmas, And all through the town, People wore masks, That covered their frown. The frown had begun Way back in the Spring, When a Chinese virus, Changed everything. They called it corona, But unlike the beer, It didn’t bring good times, It didn’t bring cheer. Airplanes were grounded, Travel was banned. Borders were closed Across air, sea and land. As America locked down, To flatten the curve, The economy halted, And folks lost their nerve. From March to July, We braved the first wave, People stayed home, They tried to behave. Now it’s December And cases are spiking, Wave two has arrived, Much to our disliking. It is true that this year, Visited sadness upon plenty, We will never forget The year twenty twenty. And just ‘round the corner - The holiday season, But why be merry? Is there even one reason? To adorn the house And put up a tree, Who will see it, No one but me. As I gaze out my window, The snow gently falls, And I think to myself, Let’s deck the halls! So, I gather the ribbon, The garland and bows, As I play those old carols, My happiness grows. My voice lifts up beyond the sky, Giving Him thanks and praise. Up where my heart is not alone, Sings a joyful chorus ablaze. Christmas is not cancelled, And neither is hope. If we lean on each other, I know we can cope. ------------------------------------------------------------------

    It doesn't matter I am no longer complying with additional gun laws. I lost my guns when NJ forcefully reduced our magazine capacity to 10 rounds. I don't care what they say and do anymore and I know many Americans feel the way I do.

    Does anyone know or care that today we honor those who died at Pearl Harbor, December 7th.....both my uncle and aunt survived the attack by the Japanese fighter planes that day...... At 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time, a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault.
