Terrible crime, and the scumbags who did this are still roaming the city...they need to be taking dirtnaps.

If you're going to resist, it should be armed resistance. It's going to really suck if it was the anti-car theft device that caused everything to go bad.

Engaged Couple Killed in NJ Carjacking
JERSEY CITY, N.J.
(April 4) - An engaged couple returning to their northern New Jersey home early today were fatally shot in what authorities believe was a botched carjacking.
Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said 27-year-old Michael Muchiaki and his 25-year-old girlfriend, Nia Haqq, were both shot twice in the head. They were found near their car, which was not taken.
The couple had attended a party in New Brunswick and returned to their Jersey City home around 3 a.m., DeFazio said.
As they parked their car, they were approached by a man and two women, who later fled the scene in another vehicle.
DeFazio said that based on the crime scene and witness statements, it appears the victims were shot during an unsuccessful carjacking.
Authorities believe their car could not be taken because it had anti-theft device.
So far the story is way too vague. Not a very happy Easter for that poor couple. Very sad situation.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."

Now, that is a shame.
I grew up in the surrounding area and Jersey City always was(is) a risky area. I always had my guard up if I drove into Jersey City.

This does not sound right to me.
Two in the head of both victims in a carjacking sounds more like a hit or some thing to me.
Being SA and armed is a good thing no matter what.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

Hey, the anti-theft device worked! The car was not stolen.

This is a sad and alarming story. It will be interesting to see if there are future developments. Was this a hit, or just some drug-crazed idiot who no longer cared that the car was not worth a double homicide?

12th homicide in JC this year..............surprised there aren't way more and more crime. Remember, we can't carry anything in New Jersey to defend ouselves....not even a folding knife unless you are fishing or hunting and have the appropriate licenses.

This needless double homicide is really sad. New Jersey residents need to demand less restrictive firearm / carry laws now, ....or buy more body bags. (and California, Massachusetts, New York, Illinois, etc...)
Here's a little helper for you:
Vermont: Any non-felon can carry whatever they want, no restrictions, no permit.
Vermont: 8 Murders, 145 rapes, 73 robberies, 520 assaults, 3,064 burglaries, 10,505 thefts, 641 auto thefts (and 4 of those murders were a non-resident killing his family)
New Jersey: In New Jersey, firearm owners are required to get a lifetime Firearm Purchaser card for the purchase of rifles, shotguns or handguns as well as ammunition. To purchase a handgun, a separate permit is needed from the local police department for each handgun to be purchased and expires after 90 days. These, like the initial Firearms Identification card, require in-depth application questioning, multiple references and background checks via the State Bureau of Identification and New Jersey State Police. NJ law states that Firearms Identification approval and/or handgun purchase permit(s) must be issued within 30 days. Capacities of semiautomatic handguns and rifles (total in magazine excluding chamber) are limited to 15 rounds or less. N.J. Rev. Stat § 2C:39-1y. New Jersey allows the purchase, possession and use of hollowpoint ammunition except in concert with any sort of criminal activity. New Jersey has its own ban on various semi-automatic firearms as well. Police are bound by the Assault Weapons Ban (AWB) in NJ and cannot own those firearms unless they are signed off by the Chief as used in an official capacity. They are exempt from the magazine limits when used in a duty/off duty firearm and approved by the department.
It is the express policy of New Jersey legislative and law enforcement authorities that the carrying of a handgun on one's person be strictly limited only to those earning a living through the carrying of a handgun. Theoretically, there exists a route for a civilian to legally carry a handgun, but in reality, is practically nonexistent.
Starting January 1, 2010, New Jersey limited handgun purchases to one per 30 day period.
New Jersey: 417 murders, 1,208 rapes, 13,215 robberies, 16,079 assaults, 38,980 burglaries, 136,728 thefts, 27,683 auto thefts.
I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" "Is that a Smith & Wesson 686+ 7 shot or 627 8 shot?" "Does he have a concealed Sig P226 SCT and two spare mags?" You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

Sounds more like a hit then a car jacking.
Also not seeing where they offered any resistance.
April 5th, 2010 10:35 PM
Well, what ever it was the bottom line is practically no one in NJ can legally defend themselves on the street.....and for that matter there is no Castle Doctrine in the home either....you have the duty to retreat even in your own home.
IMO, if the economy goes any further south, the crime rate in NJ could possibly skyrocket....we are all forced to be sheep here by our elected and appointed officials and there's really no chance for it to change in the near future. A haven for criminals.

I work in NJ every week. If it was the last place on earth, I would never live there. Not a nice place. I think most people live there because they are not aware that there are much better places to live.
April 6th, 2010 10:57 AM
No.....they live here because you can make money here, then they retire and move. Meanwhile, it's not a safe place to live anymore, IMO. Only the criminal element can carry here obviously..
