From the Lehigh Valley Tea Party/9-12 Project Second Amendment Committee’s Newsletter

 

A prosecutor in New Jersey has dropped a gun charge against a Pennsylvania corrections officer who was accused after a car accident of carrying his weapon without a state permit.

A spokesman for Gloucester County, N.J. prosecutors said that the charge was inappropriate because Raymond Hughes was the victim of a drunken driving accident when police in Glassboro learned he had the gun in his car, according to a FOXnews.com report.

It seems that Hughes had a valid permit to carry in Pennsylvania, but the permit wasn’t recognized by New Jersey’s ridiculous gun “laws.” Hughes, a productive citizen, faced a minimum of 3 ½ years in prison if he was found guilty of the felony.

The case also could have cost him his job. He’s been a sergeant at a state prison in Chester for more than 13 years, according to FOXnews.com.

Hughes’ case once again called attention to New Jersey’s famously strict gun laws, considered the second-toughest in the country after New York’s. A number of gun owners from outside the state, like Hughes, say they were unaware that New Jersey is one of the few states in the country that do not recognize other states’ permits and were shocked to learn they faced criminal charges and significant prison time, according to an nj.com report.

Those cases have sparked outrage among the National Rifle Association and other patriotic 2nd Amendment groups who say otherwise law-abiding people are being subjected to unduly harsh penalties, notes the article.

Among those who have been charged in cases similar to Hughes’ are a North Carolina resident who voluntarily told police in Mercer County that he was carrying a weapon and an armored car security guard in North Brunswick who faced charges for transporting his firearm in the glove box of his car.”

Similarly, as previously reported in the Second Amendment Committee bulletin, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie last year pardoned Shaneen Allen, a Philadelphia resident, mother of two and concealed carry permit owner who was arrested in New Jersey for carrying a weapon in her car.

Allen had a concealed carry permit and a lawfully registered handgun while she was traveling through New Jersey, when she was pulled over by a New Jersey police officer for making an unsafe lane change.

She told the officer of the handgun in her car, unaware that it was illegal in the state of New Jersey. Because of the misunderstanding, she was arrested and faced felony prosecution.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – who recently dropped out of the Presidential race but announced his support for patriot Donald Trump – has pardoned a number of individuals accused of unlawfully possessing a weapon even when that weapon is legally owned and has been registered somewhere in the country.

In late February, however, New Jersey’s Republican Assembly leader said he is pursuing legislation to loosen the state’s tough gun possession laws, according to a washingtontimes.com article.

Minority Leader Jon Bramnick and Republican Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon said at a statehouse news conference the legislation would make it easier for prosecutors to reduce gun possession charges.

“Bramnick says current law bars prosecutors from exercising discretion when negotiating plea deals, especially in cases where a defendant is from out of state,” notes the report. “He said the new effort stemmed from the case of an actor who in 2015 used an air gun while making an independent film in Woodbridge and was charged with a gun-related offense.”

But Dingbat Democratic Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto has no plans to advance the legislation, whining that it would “weaken” the state’s confiscatory gun laws.
