    New Jersey Lawmakers Passs Gun Carry Legislation After Ruling

    New Jersey lawmakers pass gun carry legislation after ruling

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey lawmakers gave final approval Monday to legislation overhauling rules to get a firearm carry permit after this summer’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling expanded gun rights.

    The Democrat-led Senate passed the measure in what is scheduled to be the last voting session of the year, sending the legislation to Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy. In an emailed statement, Murphy spokesperson Tyler Jones said the governor would “swiftly” sign the bill.
    “Since day one of his administration, Governor Murphy has been vocal about his support for stronger gun safety laws in the state of New Jersey,” Jones said.

    Republicans opposed the measure, raising questions about its constitutionality, and gun rights advocates predicted it wouldn’t pass constitutional muster.

    “The 2nd Amendment cannot be ignored because New Jersey’s majority party does not like it,” GOP state Sen. Ed Durr said during a debate on the chamber’s floor. No Democrats spoke in favor of the measure on Monday, but earlier they said they believed the measure is constitutional.

    The legislation scraps New Jersey’s current requirement that those seeking a permit to carry a firearm show “justifiable need” and be of “good character” to reflect the Supreme Court’s June ruling.

    Other changes in the legislation include disqualifications for those who have been confined over their mental health, people who have had restraining orders as any “fugitive from justice.”

    The measure calls for the end of a paper permitting system that used quadruplicate documents to register applicants. It also would establish a yet-to-be created online gun sales portal.

    It increases from three to four the number of endorsements from non-family members in order to get a permit. They would also have to be interviewed by law enforcement officials as well.

    The measure also boosts training requirements, calling for online, in-person classroom and target-shooting instruction. And it would require permit carriers to carry liability insurance.

    It bars people from carrying in many public places, including state buildings, schools, polling places, child-care facilities, publicly owned parks and beaches, as wells concert venues and bars.

    New Jersey requires permits to both purchase as well as carry firearms. Purchase permits for handguns would go from $2 to $25 under the measure. For other firearms, the rate goes from $5 to $50. The measure calls for a $200 fee for a carrier’s permits. Current applications list a $50 fee. The increased fee would permit local governments to keep $150 for the cost of processing, with the remainder slated for the state’s office of crime victim’s compensation.

    Scott Bach, the head of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, predicted Monday the bill would “go down in flames” and amounted to a “big middle finger” to the Supreme Court.

    I saw a clip of a NJ legislature woman arguing that this will be unconstitutional and is just a waste of taxpayer money.
    it seems like nobody listened.
    Have a nice day.

      NY/NJ sending a big GFYS to SCOTUS and the lower courts seem to be winking at it all. No emergency orders. No (other than the LIGC’s of the world) outrage at the blatant disregard for the now law of the land or buggery of the constitution. We need lawsuits that that demand compensation and damages, maybe those will get someone’s attention.

      On deck, Cali and CT.

        They didn't listen, because they don't care if it's Constitutional, or about wasting taxpayer money. They only care about what they can put in their campaign ads.

          Nothing wrong at all with the government charging exorbitant fees for the exercise of civil rights.

            (Reuters) - A federal judge on Monday blocked parts of a recently passed New Jersey law restricting where people in the state may carry guns, an early test of some states' efforts to pass gun control measures in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year expanding gun rights nationwide.

            U.S. District Judge Renee Marie Bumb said that the state's new restrictions violated the right to bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The law banned carrying guns in public libraries, museums, bars and restaurants and on private property without the owner's explicit permission, as well as transporting loaded guns in vehicles,

            She issued a temporary restraining order barring enforcement of those bans while several people pursue a legal challenge to the law. The challenge was brought by three individuals and gun-rights advocacy groups.

            Other parts of the law, which was signed last month by Democratic New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, are not part of the lawsuit and remain in effect. They include provisions tightening gun licensing requirements and handgun safety rules.

            Tyler Jones, a spokesperson for Murphy, said the governor's office was disappointed that the judge had struck down "common sense restrictions" and would work to get them reinstated.

            The law was passed in response to the Supreme Court's decision in June that the U.S. Constitution protects individuals' right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense, striking down a New York law governing gun licenses.

            The decision left open the possibility for states to restrict guns in "sensitive places," but said any restrictions must be consistent with the nation's historical tradition of gun regulation. Bumb ruled Monday that New Jersey's restrictions did not fit with that tradition.

            Constitutional carry won’t even put and end to the idiocy.

              These blue AG’s and Governors should be RICO’ed for the post Bruen shenanigans. Remarkable how similar these sensitive location and other SCOTUS GFYS’s are to each other. The calls between these officials strategizing and orchestrating their remarkably similar legislation with the expressed intent of not only defying the SCOTUS but of intentionally denying the constitutional rights of their states residents.

                C'mon man. we know who sponsored the drafting of all of these. And to give credit, they did find the weak spots in NYSRPA v Bruen.
                NJ is softer around the edges in a few spots offering leniency for inadvertent missteps as one example.
