Ammoland.com – The New Jersey Second Amendment Society will be holding a press conference at RTSP Range (961 NJ-10, Randolph, NJ 07869) on December 1, 2015, at 10:00AM.
The purpose of this press conference is to release our undercover investigation which has documented and exposed through video evidence the corruption, sexism, racism, ageism, ableism, et al., within New Jersey’s firearm and conceal carry application process.
May this be a warning to the 49 other states in our country, how hopelessly committed NJ is to creating a society of victims through arbitrary and discriminatory gun laws. With a legislature bent on destroying the 2nd Amendment whenever possible, and an indifferent governor running for the highest office in our country, it is imperative that the country understands how expendable the state of NJ finds the life of its citizens.
The average citizen of NJ has absolutely no legal opportunity to protect themselves by bearing arms, particularly outside their doorstep.
The state legislators, judges, and municipal police departments tacitly collude to ensure no one outside of law enforcement has the right to carry a firearm. Simultaneously, countless district and supreme court decisions have historically upheld that law enforcement has absolutely no duty to protect an individual citizen (seeWarren v. DC 1981).
Meanwhile, the same law-enforcement officials who enjoy the exclusive protection of firearms have complete omnipotence to deny every citizen the right to carry, pointing the finger at our tyrannical “justifiable need” laws passed by legislators, who in turn, enshrine the police with legal infallibility.
This is a vicious circle of corruption, and the sovereign citizen is the one left to dry, but even worse, sometimes to die.
Beyond even the discussion of concealed carry privileges which are already non-existent in NJ, the NJ2AS has discovered that police departments are now wantonly denying even simple possession permits, which are required in NJ to purchase firearms for home protection:
“For years we have stated that New Jersey’s firearms application process is massively discriminatory and racist, and creates victimhood among regular citizens — and for years our concerns have been laughed at and disregarded by public officials — now we have solid, irrefutable video evidence of all forms of discrimination occurring in the process” said Alexander Roubian, President of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society.
“We have collected dozens of examples of practically every form of discrimination. We intend to shine a light on the tyrannical attitude of our state and municipal government until the legislators and Governor Christie correct this seriously discriminatory practice that has already quite literally cost the lives of NJ citizens. To deny a woman the ability to purchase a firearm because in the opinion of the police officer she is too small or because an applicant is too old does not put our society back decades; it puts us back centuries. NJ legislators and judges have passively created a true-to-life caste system in the Garden State”
The New Jersey Second Amendment Society has been in communication with prominent civil rights and Second Amendment organizations nationwide to coordinate the proper social and legal action behind our investigation.
New Jerseyans deserve better than a state where prosecutors joke with judges that they are the only people they know that have a concealed carry permit. We deserve better than politicians who defend laws that persistently disarm the sovereign, non-criminal public, yet run behind metal detectors and armed state troopers to pass their tyrannical bills in our statehouse while personally enjoying the benefits of a conceal carry permits.
But perhaps most grossly, we certainly deserve better than law enforcement officials drunk on power that arbitrarily deny law-abiding citizens their unalienable second amendment rights.
We will shed sunlight on the disgusting abuses of power in the Garden State until citizens are afforded the same abilities to protect themselves as those in virtually every other state in our nation. Otherwise, we demand our politicians in the Trenton statehouse, bureaucrats in every municipal building, and officer in every police department disarm themselves completely to experience what it feels like to be on a level playing field with NJ’s ostensibly second-class citizens.
New Jersey Second Amendment Society – Our mission is to promote the free exercise of Second Amendment rights within the community and Legislature of New Jersey, to educate the community regarding the enjoyable, safe, and responsible use of firearms, and to engender a sense of camaraderie and fellowship among the members and their families.
