Good News From New Jersey & Sad From Arkansas

On August 27, 2014 I wrote a post titled Southern Hospitality.  I mentioned the case of Shaneen Allen, the Pennsylvania lady who drove into New Jersey and volunteered to the police officer, who stopped her,  the fact that he had her licensed handgun (in Pennsilvania - not New Jersey) in the car. The Atlantic county prosecutor  initially pressed for the harshest penalty possible, prison time and permanent felony status.

This week, as a result of tremendous pressure from the Gun Owners of America he has backed off of that draconian position and will place her in a first offender catagory, a provision of New Jersey law which cuts considerable slack to innocent, inadvertent violations and does not leave a felony status.  This is great news for a young woman who was tripped up by our silly, arcane and numerous gun control laws which vary from state to state and are universally unconstitutional.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep a bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

This is the only valid law in the entire United States concerning gun ownership and carry.  Every other law which attempts to restrict either action is patently unconstitutional.  We must all start bombarding our representatives with demands that all of those restrictive laws be purged from our legal codes.

For those of us who feel that Shaneen Allen was at fault for having her handgun in New Jersey, because after all, she doesn't really need a gun in New Jersey, let us think and pray for Beverly Carter of Arkansas, who was abducted last Thursday.

(Beverly Carter's remains have been found.  09/30/14 - Requiescat In Pace)

Beverly Carter

Our women deserve peace of mind in normal times and a fighting chance in horrific ones.  These laws must go!  If you haven't joined the Gun Owners of America, you should.  Don't bother to join the National Rifle Association, they are worse than useless.
