  1. Well IL went as far as court of appeals and they got 180 days to craft a system. DC lost also at appeals and DC was pretty quick, then re-interpreted the ruling and it took a few years and another judge if I recall. My guess is NJ will do what they did with stun guns, they issued a one pager to all PD's noting the change. When I emailed my local chief he was aware of the letter and was vague on it's practical application. Couldn't nail the guy down. I went as far as providing a scenario. What if I had on my person a concealed stun gun, for all lawful purposes and an officer was knowledgeable of this, would I be arrested? He couldn't or wouldn't answer. I understand that they can't give legal advise but come on. The first application after a win at SCOTUS will have to go before a superior judge for issuance, that's the law currently. He/she would have to accept self defense, if SCOTUS spells that out in the opinion, and then accept that as a justifiable need. No need to craft a new law. The legislature can pile on new laws that make it more expensive, more time consuming, more qualifying and begin to spell out where you can carry.
  2. NJ AG has never had to argue before SCOTUS on 2A before. They had stacked courts before and didn't even send the A team. Anyone remember the valley girl that argued for the state the last time. They can't roll out the usual tropes and wink wink at the judge. There is a very good chance that this will be heard and they are without a viable constitutional plan.
  3. What about the full auto Thompson BB rifles on the boardwalk, you know, shoot out the red star?
  4. I have a buddy who pulled a travel trailer into Canada in the 80's or 90's. At the boarder he declared the shotgun which at the time was OK without paperwork I recall (may be wrong). The boarder official was most interested in handguns. I'd take the sage advice of shipping to yourself from lower 48 to yourself at an AK address. The ammo you can buy at the first store you find or ship it separately.
  5. It's death by 1000 cuts. Look at CA, they are constantly introducing firearm bills. There is no end in sight because the end game has always been to legislate the 2A out of existence. In dark rooms any of these guys would admit their preference, no gun ownership by private citizens. Everything they do is reasonable and for the children, same tropes, same playbook, different day.
  6. means all the justices will review the case, it goes before every sitting judge in the 9th circuit court of appeals
  7. they may be getting this through committee so they can add it as a rider to the tax or budget. tax and budget will not get 60 votes in senate, too many democrats who oppose anything republicans do not to mention demonizing current president. If there is any defense spending in a bill, CCW reciprocity can be added like they tried with the Thune bill some years back. again, budget allows for reconciliation (51 votes like AHCA) so this bill can be added and ride the coat tails of a budget bill easily. then we'd need only 50 senators min (VP is tie breaker). this may be the timing and strategy to thwart the schummers of the world
  8. and who is carrying a valid license or permit which is issued pursuant to the law of a State I live in NJ and have a permit from "a State", in my case FL, the "a State" is key in my mind
  9. Well the Toms River PD chief got back with a positive answer, and I quote: "yes that exact directive was sent out to my officers on October 24th. You will not be charged for possession alone." The scenario I gave was possession for all legal purposes, concealed carry, officer detects, now what? I'm happy with the response. I wanted to know if he had a directive to the rank and file in light of the memo from the NJ AG. At least if anyone in my family is somehow stopped and the officer is not in the know we can say, hey go talk to your chief, I did, he said simple possession is not an arrest-able offense.
  10. I got a response from Ocean County prosecutors office, gave a very lawyer-y response. Got a response from the chief at my hometown PD, he gave a PD response. No one wants to go on record, they sidestep the question and appear to answer a question I didn't ask. From my buddy who is a prosecutor, he laughed and said that is typical. No one in law enforcement wants to give advise or let too many cats out of the bag. He predicts they'll be selling these at the boardwalk next summer. My only goal was to find out if there was a directive from the chief and/or the county. I even asked in a way that would not require a legal advise. I only wanted to know if the patrolmen and prosecutors are aware of the change and know not to arrest for simple possession, even pointed out possession for all legal purposes. My gut feeling is they know and won't make a public comment for fear that doing so will embolden people to exercise a freedom. NJ law enforcement is stuck in weird mindset. They see free America as an aberration when in fact it is NJ.
  11. Someone pointed me to an article posted here in which State v Kelly was referenced. Halfway down we read " We know that under State v. Kelly, self defense does not count as a "lawful use" under 2C:39-5(d)" The gist of the opinion is that only part of stung guns was struck down. Apparently there is more than one way to skin a cat and NJ left something for the prosecutors.The Consent Order didn't cover possession of weapons so therefore there is an avenue to arrest and prosecute??? If the case mentions Heller and if stun guns are covered because they are weapons and if Heller says a primary reason for firearms is self defense, then I'm not sure why an "intended use" comes into question. The only use for a stun gun is for self defense. Regardless of State v Kelly, Heller and it's incorporation to the states by McDonald overrides any dumb NJ case law.
  12. I'm guessing that if tasers are now protected in NJ under the umbrella of the 2nd Amendment, they must be an "arm" for "bearing". The NJAG decided not to fight the federal suit after the SCOTUS ruling dropped in 2016. The precedent now is that "arms" are not to be "infringed" via NJ's laws. Heller said any weapon in common use is protected and there is no technology limit (i.e. freedom of speech is covered on TV even though we didn't have TV in the 1700's) So . . . a handgun carried as an "arm" should be treated similar to a taser. To keep and bear a taser (allowed by NJ) should be the gateway to firearm keep and bear. Maybe Alan Gura and/or 2nd Amendment Foundation is already on this. They may just need a vehicle to use in order to start things.
  13. Bought a Pulse at Java Run Wholesale, try the discount code REG10 for a 10% discount. They sell on Amazon for less but Amazon hasn't lifted the NJ restriction. With the discount it's about the same price.
