Longtime resident Lady Liberty, age 236 was struck by a stolen Chevy Volt last night along the interstate. The driver and passengers, illegally in the US from their native countries across the world, then dragged Ms. Liberty into the woods and brutally sodomized her before heading to the local polling place where they registered using the names of Supreme Court justices and voted without being challenged by UN poll watchers.
Authorities found them around the corner, each with a large supply of newly legalized recreational marijuana, getting high. They were taken into custody and released a short time later with a kiss on each cheek and a prepaid gift card for WaWa to handle the munchies.
Ms. Liberty is in extremely critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit, and doctors are very wary of her chances of recovery. A crowd of zombie-like citizens are already gathered at the Liberty residence, preparing to loot it of valuables when she succumbs to her injuries or the Death Panel declares her worthless and pulls the plug.
Anywhere else, I'd agree with you, but this is NJ. Sure, there are many pro-gun or simply intelligent, sensible officers. But there are plenty here that think that only they should carry guns and will charge you even if the case is flimsy.
I don't know, but most firearms violations in NJ are a felony. Also, the 450 feet requirement sounds like statewide hunting regulations so I suspect it may be a state law redundantly added into local law. I don't know, but I also don't want to find out the hard way.
