N.J.: Gov. Christie Pardons Shaneen Allen

posted on April 3, 2015

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has pardoned Shaneen Allen, the single mother who accidentally transported the handgun she was licensed to carry in Pennsylvania into New Jersey and became the rallying cry for gun reform in that state. Allen had faced a lengthy prison term for the felony charge, until public furor over the injustice led Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain to allow her to enter the state’s Pretrial Intervention Program.

NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre believes justice has now been served. “This ends a vulgar chapter in an endless series of shameful episodes where political opportunists seek nothing but their own advantage,” LaPierre said. “I compliment Gov. Christie for doing the right thing.”
