N.J. Legislators Sue Governor Over Carry Permit Rule

posted on April 5, 2017

We told you recently how New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tried to ease the burden on the state’s law-abiding gun owners by making a critical portion of the state’s concealed-carry law more user friendly.

Now, Philly.com reports that the New Jersey legislature is suing Christie in an attempt to roll back that rule.

Last month, Christie formally adopted the police rules introduced in 2016 that more clearly define the state's “justifiable need” standard for issuance of concealed-carry permits. Christie’s newly adopted rules allow New Jersey officials to consider evidence of “serious threats” that are not directed specifically at a person when they consider applications for handgun carry permits.

Apparently proud that their state is one of the worst for Second Amendment rights, the Democrat-led legislature wants to go back to the more restrictive standard, and is filing suit to do so—remarkably ignorant considering legislators in some 20 other states are currently considering loosening regulations pertaining to concealed carry.
