    Hopefully he won't let this drop with the commutation of the sentence. He is still a convicted felon and has lost many right (not only 2A).

    I would hope to see the conviction expunged though the Gov did a good thing.

    Gov. Christie took the cowards way out. The conviction should have been overturned.

    Nope, he is still considered guilty, and thus now completely barred from owning any firearms of any kind.

    That is amazing that the prison sentence was so very harsh, for someone who posed no threat at all to society.

    This is just another example of how a vindictive woman can destroy her husband's life through a mean and dirty divorce.

    Actually his ex had nothing to do with it. His mother is the one who called the police, because she was concerned about his mental state.

    Since this was strictly a statutory violation, I wonder how 7 years in jail compares to the sentence for another statutory violation in the Garden State - statutory rape.

    Gee thanks alot mom! Either way he got a bum rap on this all the way around. Part of that was because he lived in or was moving to (depending on which story you go by) New Jersey. One of several places/cities/states that I will "never" be found in either dead or alive.

    What do you mean? The ex-wife caused all of his problems, not his mother.

    It was the ex-wife who kicked him out and thus forced him to have his guns in the trunk of his car. It was his ex-wife who had prevented him from having visitation with his son, which is why he was so upset and depressed.

    The mother did not cause him to have any of these problems. She only called the police because she was afraid that he was so depressed over the nightmarish divorce he was experiencing that he could become suicidal. She called the police to protect him from harm, not send him to state prison for 7 years.

    The ex-wife is clearly the bad person in this matter. Don't blame the mother. The mother had only good intentions to help protect her son.

    There are a lot of women who do very evil and cruel things during a divorce. And men can often suffer greatly because of that.

    Nope....in this narrow scope, mom put him in jail.

    This is what happens when sheep are conditioned to "call the police"...because police can fix everything....

    What happened?? Instead of being sad/upset/depressed from losing his son/family in a divorce, now thanks to mom, he's a convicted felon--what real chance does he have in seeing his kid again. Her (the ex-wife) lawyer is going to jump all over this....

    So where are we now? Depressed, divorced, felon, can't get a job, can't vote, and he lives in NJ.....and this time of year has the highest rate of suicides......Merry Christmas, Mom....don't do anymore favors.

    Evidently you are privy to more intimate details of their relationship and divorce than I am. I only know what has been reported, and nothing said his wife had kicked him out. He purchased and brought the guns with him from Colorado, so it isn't like he had just left their home with them. I didn't see anything that said why the scheduled visitation was called off.....there could be a legitimate reason why she had to call it off, believe it or not, they do sometimes happen.

    As to ex's, you don't need to tell me about how they can be, I have had one for almost 30 years now.
