Very interesting reading.The New Jersey Supreme Court, for the first time in 45 years, will be considering Second Amendment rights. The Nappen Law Firm has filed its brief with the Supreme Court. A website version may be read here.
The brief strikes at the heart of New Jersey's gun control scheme. NJS 2C:39-5b Unlawful Possession of Weapons-Handguns reads as follows:
"Any person who knowingly has in his possession any handgun, including any antique handgun, without first having obtained a permit to carry the same as provided in N.J.S.2C:58-4, is guilty of a crime of the second degree." (Emphasis added)
