NJCSD & MCRGO File Amicus Brief in Landmark NJ Gun Rights Case

Ammoland.com is reporting that the New Jersey Coalition for Self Defense and the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Ownership have filed a friend of the court brief in support of the Second Amendment Foundation's lawsuit against the state of New Jersey. Below is an excerpt:

“Regulating a right into oblivion out of the reach of the citizenry is tantamount to not having those rights at all,” said Robert Kreisler, President of the NJCSD.

“Imagine if you will a State in this day and age arguing that they can maintain Jim Crow laws where only certain citizens have rights, granting them selectively to those who are ‘connected’ while denying them to others. It’s repulsive to think of, especially when you pause to consider it’s a fundamental right to safety and survival in question.”
