New Jersey Mayor, Local Officials Call For Normalizing Right To Carry

posted on December 10, 2015

Following the San Bernardino terrorist shootings, some New Jersey elected officials have called for civilizing that state’s byzantine Right-to-Carry permitting process.

Egg Harbor Township Mayor James McCullough wrote to The Press of Atlantic City that the world is unsafe and that “Maybe if someone had a gun during the San Bernardino shooting spree, some of the 14 innocent people would still be alive.” Councilman-elect Joe Venezia, also of Atlantic County, supported McCullough’s letter, noting that New Jersey—where anti-gun laws keep honest people largely disarmed—is likely a “breeding ground for terrorism.” 

Although the Press plainly tried to dismiss the notion of making Jersey’s carry laws similar to those of other states, Scott Bach, of the Association of N.J. Rifle & Pistol Clubs, warned, “People die because they are actively prevented by the state from defending themselves with a firearm outside the home” in New Jersey.
