New Jersey Poll Shows Overwhelming Opposition To Gun Charges

posted on August 1, 2015

We’ve covered a variety of terrible incidents in New Jersey, in which well-meaning gun owners were charged for an accidental infraction of the state’s restrictive gun laws. Now it appears that state residents are just as horrified by these abuses as are Second Amendment supporters from other parts of the country. A reader poll on NJ.com asks the question, “Should people with permits to carry guns in other states face criminal prosecution for carrying them in New Jersey?” The results show an overwhelming preference for “No.”

It is reassuring to see that New Jersey residents feel that the charges leveled against citizens like Steffon Josey-Davis and Brian Fletcher are ludicrous. Yet the politicians at the top continue to hold on to these draconian gun laws. It is time for voters to clean house and elect representatives who support their constituents’ rights.
