  1. Thanks for coming out to them. Glad to hear you've enjoyed them.
  2. Sorry
  3. Save the Date: NJ SAFE Conference returns to Vineland on September 22nd!
  4. FYI Lots of folks are wearing blue to show solidarity, even if it isn't a rally shirt.
  5. Is it because he misuses words like reality? Frankly, there is an objective reality to be explored on matters like firearms and violence, IMO (and I suspect most here would agree). Many seem to want to subscribe to a subjective view of the world, which leads them to spout nonsense like this. (I think exploring the ideas of meaning and symbolism can be useful in determining why people think what they do, but it isn't useful in understanding phenomena in the physical world.)
  6. Any worthwhile representation at that level is going to be frighteningly expensive. That's why cases supported and guided by institutions (like ANJRPC) are so valuable. The fact that an individual decided it was too expensive to finance on their own doesn't mean a whole lot. By the way, I'm not arguing Nappen is a saint or some kind of savior. My point was that I don't think he deserves much of the criticism that I see here based on things I personally have witnessed.
  7. So Nappen said that he wanted too much money to continue his case? That doesn't make any sense.
  8. And I know several people he has helped. Can he be hard to get a hold of sometimes? YES. But then again, so am I. My "ONE phone call" is to my wife, not my lawyer. Should I need to make it, she knows what to do from there. (God forbid).
  9. If you were following Pantano, you know that the NJ Supreme Court decided to not hear the case, claiming that their earlier decision to hear it was "improvident", I think. If he couldn't appeal a state court ruling, my understanding is that it would have changed the path to SCOTUS to be through the federal court system, which we had already done with Drake, et al.
  10. Based on what, exactly? The irony here is that now you will have started a rumor and in 3 to 6 months I'll be reading about how some numbskull "knows" this is true cause he "read it somewhere". Here is what I know about Evan Nappen. He has appeared at each NJ SAFE Conference. Do you know what we pay speakers? Nothing. If they come from out of state, we offer them a room to stay in the night before. He has been doing a Continuing Legal Education course with us too. You know how much money we paid him for that course? Nothing. Zero. Zilch. So for the past couple years, he takes his own time to travel to NJ, spend a day with us teaching CLE to help other lawyers know the gun laws better, and then speaks at the conference.
  11. For what its worth, here is a link to DSG Bloom's presentation at NJSAFE.
  12. For those interested in an analysis of the concealed carry litigation environment by the attorney who filed ANJRPC's challenge:
  13. This is patently ridiculous. The prominent lawyers in New Jersey's 2A community do not prefer the "status quo", have never said they support the "status quo", and have done far more than most to change the "status quo".
  14. If you read the email, it specifically mention that NRA is involved in the lawsuit in a supporting role. Emphasis mine
