  1. I had to show this wagon because one of my friend's father had one, although not in the condition below. I remember he asked to take us for a ride on RT 287 in NJ in the mid '70s. At that time going up towards Bedminster was still pretty light in traffic, especially after working hours. Well 3 or 4 of us were trying to find a polite way of declining because what teenager wanted to tool around in a station wagon. They weren't cool. Well we learned a thing or two about engines, especially when he opened it up on the Interstate! I couldn't believe a stodgy, heavy wagon could move like that! 1969 Chevrolet Kingswood 427 Station wagons are not usually thought of as muscle-cars, but the Kingswood deserves the label as it is a proper pavement punisher. In 1969, if you were picky with the options packages, you could order the big family truckster with the 427 cubic-inch Turbo-Jet V8, pushing 390-horsepower through a four-speed manual transmission. With all the kids strapped in, and despite weighing more than all the moons of Jupiter, the Kingswood could achieve a 0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 15.6 seconds. That’s not bad for a wagon the size of Texas designed for family hauling. "And some like two guns. But one's all you need if you can use it..." - Shane I have to repeat something. We're talking a station wagon off the line, not one of these one-offs that were made for racing by the car companies. "0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 15.6 seconds." Remember in 1969 the Kawasaki Mach III 500 had these numbers. It packed 50 odd HP and 12 second quarter mile times into a $999 package! www.cycleworld.com/sport-rider/1969-kawasaki-mach-iii-500/
  2. Well it seems that they just got a case to go to District Court with carry. The NRA is taking some certified instructor that wanted a CCR but was turned down. I don't know why we just don't go straight to SCOTUS, because we know the district and circuit courts will turn the case down. I would love NJ to one of the 1st new shall states with our new SCOTUS majority. :)
  3. You know I'm agreeing with you. Right now the Court is split 4-4 and Roberts has to break ties to pass conservative opinions. I guess he's waiting for Ginsburg to go on permanent retirement, so Trump can appoint another Conservative Justice so he's not responsible to break ties.
  4. I am so pissed off at Alito. A military man and was in the law enforcement too. He's from Hamilton, NJ and voted for Heller, etc. Why did he screw us over with the Rogers case? I expected the lib side to screw us but Alito?
  5. Now I have another question that I asked a few lawyers. Even with the wishy-washy attitudes of Justice Roberts we still have 4 Conservative Justices on the Court. Sounds like those gun cases in conference for certiorari should be able to get out of conference.
  6. That is my sincere hope. I hope that they pick Rogers v Gurwal. That involves a Governor and an AG. But Cheeseman v Polillo only involves a Police Chief and a Judge. It might be easier.
  7. Well this happened after Heller. I think this meant something, even if it wasn't as strong as we wanted. We have to consider what happens to other states and not just us. The US Supreme Court of the United States decided District of Columbia v. Heller, establishing for the first time that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guaranteed an individual right to keep and bear arms in defense of oneself. From that point on, more states adopted Constitutional carry policies, and the last "no-issue" holdouts gave way. In 2010, Arizona became the third state (after Alaska and Vermont) to permit constitutional carry. In 2011, Wyoming became the fourth Constitutional carry state. Also in 2011, Wisconsin was the 49th state to legally abandon a "no-issue" policy, adopting instead a "shall-issue" policy. (Other states remained "no-issue" in practice, but not in law.) That same year, Iowa changed its "may-issue" policy to become "shall issue." In 2013, Arkansas became an ambiguously Constitutional-carry state, a position that was further solidified with a precedent set in 2018 in Taff v State of Arkansas. Briefly, this case considered a person suspected of stealing from a convenience store who, upon interview, was found to be carrying a concealed firearm and charged with carrying unlawfully. The charge was dismissed, as the defendant had not used the firearm unlawfully, nor had demonstrated intent to do so. The court held that simply carrying a concealed firearm by a person not otherwise prohibited is not a criminal act. 2013 also marked the last of the 50 states to abandon a "no-issue" policy when Illinois began a "shall-issue" policy. In 2015, two states, Maine and Kansas, adopted forms of Constitutional carry. In 2016, four states adopted some form of Constitutional carry: Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, and West Virginia. In 2017, two more states adopted Constitutional carry, North Dakota and New Hampshire. On January 31, 2019, newly elected South Dakota governor Kristi Noem signed a bill into law that makes South Dakota a constitutional carry state. The first law signed by her administration, the law goes into effect on July 1, 2019.
  8. Dirty, Thanks for the best answer for logical discussion. However one advantage we now have is the 3rd Circuit is no longer a Liberal dominated Court, thanks to Trump it is a Conservative dominated Court now. That also means that if a case gets sent back to them they could vote in a Conservative way. Mr. Stu, your point is only valid since McDonald, what about before? You mean from the 1940's nobody complained about not having the right to keep and bear arms. PeteF, Were they useless when they passed Heller & McDonald? Actually the Court can have original jurisdiction in a number of cases. I believe the point I made is covered by the underlined section, if a number of NJ Citizens complained about our Constitution leaving out their 2nd Amendment rights. Section 2 1: The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;—to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;—to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;—to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;—to Controversies between two or more States;—between a State and Citizens of another State;10 —between Citizens of different States, —between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.
  9. What I've always wondered is why the SCOTUS hasn't done something about NJ's Constitution. I've read the whole thing, and nowhere does it mention the right of New Jerseyans to keep and bear arms. So we have been without our full rights from the getgo.
  10. I have a friend from MD that has been telling me about Cumberland and I will be heading there. I haven't shot at 600 yards since I was last at my vacation (for a few days) club in northwest PA, Ridgway Rifle Club in Ridgway, PA. They have a 1,000 yard long range Varmint facility. Thanks for reminding me about Millville. I need a place where I can shoot my Shiloh Sharps #3 Sporter in .45-70 with a 30" barrel. It also gives me a chance to hit Union Lake!
  11. I was only 15 minutes or so from CJR&C, but I was hardly ever there due to my illness. As soon as my wife lets me out of the house, I'll be heading over to Range 14.
  12. One of my favorite events is CB Lever Action Silhouette. Sadly most of the NJ ranges don't offer it. But I found one across the river, Falls Twp. in PA. And you don't even have to be a member.
  13. As much as I hate Murphy, he's only one. The real problems are the State Legislature in the North (where most of the violence is) who refuse to acknowledge that guns in the hands of non-felons (most of us) do not cause crime.
  14. I just found out that the military personnel do not run the FB site. It is a civilian. She gets info from the base. I am also apologizing if any of my comments appeared as critical of the military at Fort Dix.
