Recall Murphy Petition

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the correct forum.

I just found this by mistake but looks like there is a recall murphy petition on change.org and appears to be pretty close to meeting it's goal of 15k signatures. Everyone should get on and sign it.

Not to throw water on the fire, cause I'd like to see that happen, but I went to the petition page and read the link about Recall. It said that members of Congress can be recalled. Is Murphy considered part of Congress in the state?

"The people reserve unto themselves the power to recall, after at least one year of service, any elected official in this State or representing this State in the United States Congress.

lol, I tried that also. Went back into the link, even after clearing browser history, and couldn't submit again.

You would never make a good Democrap. They would have voted 10 times each by now. Ask them how it's done, they are the masters!

That was my question, is he considered part of Congress? I thought he's part of the executive branch, not the legislative branch.

It says  any elected official in this State OR representing this State in the United States Congress.

He falls under the any elected official in this State. The "OR" is the key part of the law.

Here is a snippet from NJ law to recall a Governor....

Upon approval of the petition, the recall committee and other registered voters in the jurisdiction of the recall election will solicit the signatures of other registered voters in that jurisdiction. The recall effort is limited to 320 days for a Governor or 160 days for other elected officials from the date of the notice of intention. The petition requires the signatures of 25% of the registered voters in the jurisdiction, as of the last general election.

So we need an official petition signed by 25% of all registered voters in the PRNJ..........FORGET IT!

So are you saying that at least 25% NJ voters didn't vote against him?

I believe only 35% of voters turned out for the election

Yes. This is the number I have been hearing from several different news sources. 

Meaning we have more republicans registered than Dems but more Dems voting than republicans. Hence we are stuck in this one party system.

Turning out for the election and signing a petition are 2 different things. I just hope that more people participate in signing the petition. You never know, there could be a few Dems who sign the petition as well. I'm sure Sweeney will be more than happy to sign it.

I have to agree with JohnnyB. Getting 25% of the registered voters to sign a petition is a pipe dream. Counting the number of registered voters  (5,759,295 as of 30 Nov. 2017) that would require almost 1.44 million signatures.

Sorry as much as I would like to spread around some Magic Pixie Dust and make it happen; it won't.

    • There is no such thing as “exchanging” one handgun for another. You would still need to apply for a new “Permit to Purchase” the handgun you wish to purchase, regardless whether you keep or sell your existing one.
    • Finding a psychologist to issue an "ok to possess firearms" letter can be challenging.  A lot of them don't want to take on the perceived liability and/or are anti-gun. This psychologist is gun-friendly and does evaluations specifically for firearms: Gianni Pirelli, PhD / Forensic Psychologist 973-944-0810
    • So update... I spoke to a lawyer today (not Needleman), I told him all the dirt, just like here, he feels I have a case. He  recommends all his clients take a voluntary psyche eval to prove that they aren't a danger to public safety, it's good ammo to strengthen my case. I think I will also take a firearms safety training course too, whichever law firm I go with. I am working my way down the list of lawyers, I will give Needleman a call this week as well as a couple of others. If anyone has recommendations not mentioned above, please chime in. However I am committed to taking this to court. It's a good thing I use Google Voice for my main phone number, I have every text ever exchanged between my ex-wife and I, from the day we met, literally, from the day we planned our first date, up to the day of divorce. New phone? Doesn't matter, every text is in your Google account.  It should help. I'll give incremental updates as they happen. One question I do have for you guys who have been through this, what happens if the judge overrides the chief, I purchase my firearm, and I apply for another handgun permit 2 years from now? Can the Chief deny it if I am still an upstanding citizen? Or do I have to go to court all over again for another firearm? Let's say the CZ P-10 C isn't for me and I want a Glock 19, do I need a new permit for the new gun, or can I exchange my gun in a purchase, and just have 1 firearm on record, without intervention of the Chief, regardless of the model weapon? Also, has anybody ever recovered legal fees when overturning the Chief's decision in Superior Court? The funny thing was, I told this lawyer that I applied early December, and was just denied last week. He seemed appalled.
    • Murphy is talking “May 20th” to open the state back up   He’s got support and FEMA resources to manage test centers until the end of May.  I don’t see how you can maintain social distancing of 6’ at indoor ranges. New shooters getting instruction from 6’? RSO’s helping shooters from 6’? Staff at ranges that rent guns wiping rental guns down and disinfecting them for each new shooter. No one is prepared for that   For members, maybe it can be done.  It’s not happening for a while.
