19 States Join Lawsuit Against NJ Gun Law


They all understand. If they don’t stand, they’re next:

Guns

Nineteen states as well as the powerful National Rifle Association have joined the case’s plaintiff John Drake, who in his lawsuit claims he was denied a permit following a thwarted robbery attempt on his Sussex County business.

Drake lost his appeal before a three-judge panel of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year and now a growing number of states, led by Wyoming, are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case, claiming New Jersey was wrong when it determined that the business owner failed to prove “justifiable need” to carry a gun under state statute.

Drake’s suit also claims that his right to bear arms under the Second Amendment has been violated.

Wyoming’s Republican Gov. Matt Mead said: “If the current decision stands, states providing greater protections than New Jersey under the Second Amendment may be pre-empted by future federal action.”

This should be a much higher number.

It’s time for the states to start pushing back.
