immediately lol where have you been the last 5 years, there is nothing more they can do in NJ, all that's left is they can dump all their money into NJ elections next time around, and even if they dump 500 million dollars into republican candidates in NJ there is about a 10% chance they'll take control of the house and senate, they know this to be true and after today im more than positive SAF will give up on us just like the NRA has 

 

 

ill agree at this point nj is a lost cause.  but the SAF has been doing a ton of stuff nationally.

I know you guys don't want to think this - but it would have been worse if they had taken this case and then upheld the idiotic Justifiable Need (neeeeeeahd even) statute.

 

This just gives me one more straw on the camel to move out of NJ.

I had the same thought. Realistically, I think we're done for my lifetime, but I have young kids. Despite all the amnesty panic, here's no telling what the country will look like in 40 years. The Italians and Irish used to be reliable Democrat votes until they became assimilated. I see no reason why the same may not happen with Latinos. Culturally, I think the average illegal is a natural republican. Better to leave the issue unsettled and while we go back to our lair and lick our wounds for a fee decades.

Judiciary systems in some so-called third world countries are far better than here at home. The simple fact that tools necessary to defend self needs someone's permission and justifiable need is mind boggling.  There is a not a single most important issue than defense of self (verbal, legal and physical) that applies across gender, color, sexual orientation and economical status.  The fact that SC denied hearing of such an important and broad aspect of individual freedom is just shameful.

 

In NJ, Animals have more rights to self defense than People. Real shame.

 

Win, or Lose,  individual rights are ALWAYS under attack. We all may be feeling "down" today but cannot give up on making continued efforts to getting our rights back.

The Cubans were reliable republican voters.... There children are not.

I am sad. I had hope our justice system was not as completely flawed as the rest of our political machine. I could not be more wrong.

They are the ones that unchained the political machine. They are the ones to blame for all of our problems. And it was a deliberate plan hatched by Progressives and Socialists at Harvard Law School during the first half of the 20th Century.

Im so sad I am finding it hard to work.  I know nothing changes, I was unable to carry yesterday, I am unable to carry today.  Having my last hope dashed just hurts.

 

I can only hope that I am able to find a job in another state.

So next would be "assault dogs". Expect any "assault dog" greater than 50lbs 'capacity', to be restricted to shitting only in your home. "Justifiable Need" required to get a permit to walk your dog outside.

 

Anyone who thinks this is ridiculous, is a First Class Fool.

 

Given enough time...and now PRECEDENT. We now know where KNOW how and where the SHIT will FLY.

'bear' is pretty understandable in the definition and in the constitution.  How they vote on this is beyond me.  We run the gov't, not the other way around.  Is it time to start bringing up replacing justices through congressional action?

How can the Supreme Court be such cowards, as to let the faulty if not irrational 3rd Circuit Court precedent stand.  According to Gura's Brief, It basically said that if a law is enacted, its therefore Constitutional, if the Legislature is questioned you have to accept their position and that other Laws don't mean what they say.  Isn't this dangerous beyond the 2A and Carry debate?:

The constitution was dead before this case and America today is as good as it's ever going to be.  With Democrats buying votes from 50 million Americans through social programs and the almost guaranteed amnesty of millions more undocumented democrats, individual rights are a thing of the past.   There is no place to run and hide from this.  In my lifetime, NJ will become the standard for the rest of the states as we march on toward true communism.

 

We are not on the slippery slope any more.  America is dead.

My read is they didnt take the case because if they did the court's decision would not have been good for us. Means Justice Kennedy probably wouldn't sign on to a decent decision on bearing arms. Why would the conservative wing of the court take a case that they know they will lose? As for the liberal wing they don't want to take it because a decision eviscerating the right to bear arms would turn into a liability in the upcoming elections. This issue will not be decided conclusively until there are some new Supreme Court Justices appointed. Critical will be the next presidential election. In the next few years more good statistical data from new right to carry states will also become more and more helpful. Eventually perhaps we can hope that gun rights become a bipartisan issue and we are not held hostage to the red blue political dichotomy on this issue any more.

Deflated is not even close to a good description of how I feel today, because of this.  I've lost all faith in the system of our country.  I agree with others that this is just a slippery slope to all kinds of other unconstitutional rulings in the future.  We are slowly but surely losing freedom each day in our country.

All of you whining about how America is dead .. what are you going to do about it?

 

Stock items to hide in my bunker so that when the gravy train finally runs out and all the liberals starve to death I will be able to start over.

 

I used to be a pretty community oriented person, but I don't care any more. Eff my neighbors who support this foolishness.

    • I used to fly out of Newark with some regularity with handguns, but it's been at least 10 years.   I'd get there plenty early, and bring with me copies of the airline policy on checking guns, and the Federal law that backed up the airline policy...because occasionally you'd get a ticket agent who was convinced that it couldn't possibly be legal, and you need to be able to convince them that they need to check with a supervisor instead of just telling you 'no'.   But usually it was straightforward, at least back then. Assuming they still use the orange 'Firearm' tags that you sign certifying the gun is unloaded, etc, those tags go INSIDE the suitcase.  Many years ago they had to go on the outside, which was like a big fluorescent 'Steal Me' sign on your suitcase.   That policy changed to inside-the bag quite a while ago, but you don't want the one agent who didn't get the memo to put it on the outside of your bag. I wonder if shipping the air pistol is an option?  NJ would probably consider it illegal, as they pretend it's a real gun, but wherever you are going almost certainly knows better...and the Feds don't care.   But that might leave you with the problem of getting it back into NJ, if that is your intent.  If it's a one-way trip for the air pistol and if you aren't too far from PA, I'd consider driving across the border and mailing the gun, especially if you can use a non-NJ address for the return address. It IS legal to ship long guns to yourself...not sure about handguns.  USPS and UPS both allowed it, though again the counter clerk will be convinced you can't do it, and someone is going to have to look up the law for them.   Shipping to yourself, if you are physically present from where it is sent, and then are physically present to receive, is legal because it is NOT a transfer.
    • When I lived in NJ, I flew out of Philly many times with a rifle/handgun. No issues at all.    Follow the advice on the airline website. You’ll need a hard sided, lockable case. Do NOT use TSA locks.    You will be required to open your case and display the weapon is clear.  You will fill out a form, which will be locked inside the case.  TSA may or may not desire to inspect the case and/or the bag the case is inside. That’s up to them. 
    • I have to fly out of Newark to Denver on United later in the month with a Handgun.  Hard to get solid advice and impossible to get through to United customer service.  It is actually an air pistol.  I was advised to fly out of Philly, it is a non issue there, but I had to book out of Newark.  I was told to ask someone who has done it before and value their advise.  I figured this would be the best place to start.  Thanks for any help. John
