Trenton NJ, Governor Murphy signed into law A4769/S-3214 which makes various revisions to requirements for obtaining a firearm purchaser identification card, permit to purchase a handgun, and permit to carry a handgun; codifies sensitive places in which firearms and destructive devices are prohibited. State Senator Holly Schepisi said in a Facebook post:

“For anyone reaching out on this bill this past Monday, I voted NO. In addition to the legislation being unconstitutional in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in NY State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, the bill is problematic in a myriad of ways. This bill will not only make it nearly impossible for people to obtain lawful carry permits but will prohibit current carry permit holders from using their existing permits nearly anywhere in the State. Indeed when asked where someone would actually be able to carry a firearm in the State, the sponsors were unable to provide any examples. Additionally, the increase of fees and liability insurance requirements are likely in violation of the Second and Fourteenth Amendments, per the nonpartisan New Jersey Office of Legislative Services. While I have always been a strong supporter of public safety, this legislation has little to no effect on stopping criminals, but rather results in harsh penalties for lawful gun owners, including crime victims and victims of domestic violence, and imposes burdens on law enforcement. This legislation, when signed into law by Governor Murphy, will undoubtedly face strict scrutiny in the courts, causing costly lawsuits which will have to be paid by the taxpayers of New Jersey.

State Senator Ed Durr blasted Governor Phil Murphy’s signing of unconstitutional and nonsensical restrictions (A-4769/S-3214) on the concealed carrying of firearms in New Jersey:

“The restrictions that Democrats and Governor Murphy enacted on concealed carry in New Jersey ignore the Second Amendment, defy the United States Supreme Court, and will do nothing to stop violent crimes committed with illegal guns. Thankfully, this unconstitutional law is already being challenged in federal court. Given the clear language of the Bruen ruling, it’s only a matter of time before this abomination of a law gets struck down. I’ll continue to fight for people’s rights and against Democrats who don’t believe that law-abiding New Jerseyans should be able to protect themselves.”

  1. Typical new jersey liberals.. blame honest law abiding citizens from exercising their constitutional right to protect themselves from the criminals they coddle
    Murphy refuses to publish the source of guns used in crimes. WHY? Because following the serial number will show they were purchased out of state and illegally trafficked here.
    NONE were obtained by the long expensive process required of HONEST gun owners.
    But in NJ they blame the gun, not the hand of the criminal using it.
    No different than Rosie O’Donnel or Whoopie Goldberg blaming the knife and fork for making them FAT slobs

    1. OUCH!! Love it.

  2. If New Jersey was still The Garden State where farmers were the predominant Citizens, this discussion would not be taking place. As it is not, and they are not, the remaining loose nuts who buy into the ridiculous current reading of the 2nd Amendment are left to rule with weapons that should be plowshares. God Save us all.

    1. He is making insurers cover abortions.

      What’s the bet he makes insurers provide firearms liability insurance?

  3. It was never intended to stop criminals.

    It was intended to CREATE them.
