    Assembly Bill A1282 "Citizen's Protection Act" needs to be brought to a vote!

    Hello all,

    For all who are interested in supporting Assembly Bill A1282, "Citizen's Protection Act" (right-to-carry) in New Jersey, please read below.

    I have contacted my local assemblyman, Michael Doherty in reference to this bill. After several emails, he has explained that this bill has been introduced and re-introduced every two years for quite some time. It sits in the NJ Law and Public Safety Committee where it eventually dies. Then, it is re-introduced only to die again. It has NEVER been brought to a vote!

    Assemblyman Doherty had urged me a number of weeks ago to contact Assemblyman Gordon Johnson because he is the "Chair of the Committee" (Law and Public Safety Committee) and would need to be persuaded to resurrect this bill and bring it to a vote. After calling and speaking with one of Assemblyman Johnson's representatives, he advised me to contact everyone who is on the Law and Public Safety Committee and especially Assemblyman Joe Roberts. Joe Roberts is the "speaker" of the Committee.

    The representative also explained to me that the best way to ensure that the Assemblymen/women hear our voices is to send an "old school" letter...snail mail. Calling is good, emailing is good, but a letter is the BEST! I recommend all three to ensure we are exhausting every avenue of approach; we need all the help we can get.

    So I'm asking you on behalf of the people of New Jersey who wish to exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms to call, email and WRITE to the following individuals prompting them to support Assembly Bill A1282 and to allow it to be brought to a vote on November 30, 2009. Again, the next meeting is November 30, 2009 so this needs to happen now!

    With the new gov. there could be a strong chance this might fly! Finally.

    NJCSD.org has been at this for a while, they've passed out flyers to gun shops,exc. to try to get a vote.
    Here's the unfortunate reality: 1 member (in this case,Johnson) can effectively block any shall-issue reform, so even if technically the votes are there, we'll never know. The assembly just recently passed the "one gun a month" bill, which they obviously didn't read because they're now publicly admitting it could place that restriction on retailers(meaning they'll be out of buisness very quickly). With a vote like that, its impossible to see that they'll go for a shall-issue bill.
    I wouldn't hold your breath on the governor doing anything either, he was asked about that on Hannity's show and basically said NO.

    The best bet for NJ going shall issue is a lawsuit on the heels of the McDonald verdict. Keep an eye also on the Palmer v. DC and Sykes v. McGuiness cases. When a higher court determines that carry(concealed or open) cannot be banned, then NJ will be forced to issue.
    "The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."
    Nunn v. State GA 1848
