  1. Well......... I posted all that information in the thread below 3 days ago " SAF Lauds Puerto Rico Court Victory For Gun Rights - Huge Victory"http://njgunforums.com/forum/index.php/topic/77198-saf-lauds-puerto-rico-court-victory-for-gun-rights-huge-victory/ Puerto Ricans can now carry firearms without a permit and the firearms registry has been eliminated. And there are no more licensing requirements to purchase. From what the article says, it looks just regular Federal Law takes precedence. This has all the makings of a landmark victory. I posted this here because it is current gun law and perhaps it might have bearing (or influence) on New Jersey in some way in the future. The politicians in NJ can't keep all these outdated and draconian gun laws in place and keep denying the right to carry without it legally coming back and biting them in the ass sometime in the future (in my opinion). Congratulations to our friends in Puerto Rico. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/saf-lauds-puerto-rico-court-victory-for-gun-rights-300102214.html "A surprising victory for gun rights in Puerto Rico has eliminated the firearms registry and licensing requirements to purchase and carry in the Commonwealth, the Second Amendment Foundation has confirmed. As of now, according to Sandra Barreras with Ladies of the Second Amendment (LSA), the group that brought the lawsuit, "there is no regulation to purchase or carry (and) all purchases will be handled in accordance with federal firearms regulations." LSA is affiliated with SAF through the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR)."
  2. Did the Burlington man contact Nappen or hired an attorney? Is any Pro-Gun group involved with helping him?
  3. What is a misdemeanor in in one state is a Felony in another. The threshold for felony shoplifting can be $200, $500 or $1,000 depending which state. Drunk driving laws vary greatly too. A second drunk driving conviction in 5 years can be a felony in one state or a misdemeanor in another. I believe non violent felons should have their rights restored after serving their time and making restitution if applicable. Martha Stewart is a good example of a non violent felon. She should have her rights restored, G Gordon Liddy too. Others might disagree and that is OK too. But once someone has Felony conviction on their record, they are essentially marked for life. Does someone who pushed paperwork the wrong way be treated the same as someone who pushed drugs? Should someone who shoplifted $201 get that scarlet letter (Felon) for life versus someone who shoplifted $199 and got a misdemeanor ? Is the white collar criminal the same threat to society as an murderer? These are all questions that need to be resolved someday. Be it said I am not some liberal who thinks that no one should face jail time for committing crimes. But does that crime justify being branded for life? Should someone who got caught pissing in a park at night be labeled a sex offender? Should someone with a second drunk driving conviction in 5 years get a Felony conviction? Should someone who did a white collar crime 10 years ago and served their sentence and paid their fines and remained out of trouble for those 10 years still carry the stigma of being labeled a Felon? As for the Burlington man and is situation, the easy thing to suggest is to have him contact Evan Nappen. The man should not have his rights violated, I know this is New Jersey and all that. But if he has no record he must not have his rights denied. This story needs to get traction on a National level.

  5. (Tin foil hat on) Of course this is purely wild speculation. But suppose all that donated military equipment like tanks, SUV's, helicopters and machine guns the police received also has a hidden purpose? What better way to transport military equipment across the country, hide it in plain sight and keep it maintained in strategic locations around the U.S. under the cover of donating it to law enforcement? Sure law enforcement can keep it, but if it was needed for civil unrest during some national crisis...the military could take it back at a moments notice...and if they pre-planned this...it wouldn't have to be shipped far from where it is now.

  7. 'No one helped her': NJ woman murdered by ex while awaiting gun permit http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/06/10/no-one-helped-her-nj-woman-murdered-by-ex-while-waiting-for-gun-permit/ "New Jersey's gun laws are among the nation's strictest, but law-abiding citizens are eligible to purchase and possess handguns after filling out forms available at their local police stations, submitting to a background check on any possible criminal history or mental health issues, giving fingerprints and paying a fee. Once those steps are taken, local police conduct a 14-point investigation and the chief is supposed to approve or deny for cause within 30 days. Check did not return requests for comment, but gun rights advocates say it is not unusual for Garden State police chiefs to take several months to approve handgun permits for qualified applicants. “The gun law’s intention is to be as difficult and cumbersome as possible,” Alexander Roubian, president of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, told FoxNews.com. “They need to be repealed. “The system is so outdated," Roubian continued. "In most states, you go to the store, get a background check, and purchase a weapon. A police chief should have no part of the process. This woman had a legitimate issue and no one helped her.” Perry Chiaramonte is a reporter for FoxNews.com. Follow him on Twitter at @perrych
  8. That makes the most logical sense.
  9. It is an ancient battery charger. Probably $20 on eBay.
  10. Facebook GOA Updates have a link to the Breitbart story "Governor Christie Pardons Aspiring Black Cop Steffon Josey-Davis" http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/06/08/governor-christie-pardons-aspiring-black-cop-steffon-josey-davis/
  11. The "Express" over in the U.K. says Jade Helm 15 is a cover for the gigantic asteroid that hit us in September and the ensuing chaos that happens after. "US military secretly preparing for asteroid that will wipe out mankind in September" http://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/583002/US-military-secretly-preparing-asteroid-wipe-out-mankind-September-Jade-Helm "One blogger has worryingly suggested US residents retain their firearms after suggesting that the controversial military operation Jade Helm taking place between July and September in several southern states is in preparation for predicted anarchy that could ensue as the asteroid nears the planet." --- Chuck Norris (yes that one) in an article to WND has a different take on all of it Did ISIS give a clue about Jade Helm 15? Exclusive: Chuck Norris explores link between terrorist plot, U.S. military exercises http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/did-isis-give-a-clue-about-jade-helm-15/ “I do believe, in addition to the largest domestic military training, it is also a display of power (near the southern border) intended for deterrence of enemies like ISIS and other terrorists, whom the FBI has already said have tentacles in all 50 states.” --- Here is a recent Huffington Post about Jade Helm 15 and Texas "Meet The Fearsome Texas State Army Taking On Jade Helm 15" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/08/greg-abbott-state-guard_n_7537230.html "When an extreme fringe of the Internet went into a paranoid frenzy about the U.S. military's Jade Helm 15 exercise, which begins next month in the Southwest, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ® did what any reasonable governor would do: He requested the commander of his forces to monitor the United States Special Operations Command. The rest of the sane world reacted by criticizing Abbott, or being confused as to what kind of troops the governor actually has at his command. "
  12. (Tin foil hat on). I wonder if Bloomberg (and company) could also be behind this. If he can silence pro-gun sites, organizations and magazines. Then how would we know when some anti-gun legislation would take place? How could we effectively counter anti-gun legislation? (Tin foil hat off) Now back to regularly scheduled commentary (subject to ITAR regulations)......
  13. Four Hours for a background check? It takes less than two minutes for a FBI NICS background check here. .
