New Jersey’s Anti-Gun Laws Killed Woman Murdered by a Stalker

A woman is dead thanks to New Jersey’s tough anti-gun laws because she was murdered by a stalker while attempting to weave through the state’s arcane gun laws. New Jersey’s decision to deny its citizens their Second Amendment rights cost this woman her life.

Carol Bowne faced domestic violence so bad she feared for her life. But she tried desperately to legally get a gun to protect herself. Only New Jersey’s gun laws are so absurd she never got her gun before her murderer caught up with her and killed her.

The Berlin Township woman got a restraining order against a former boyfriend, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the months-long process of obtaining a handgun, friends said.

But it wasn’t enough.

Bowne, 39, was stabbed to death in the driveway of her Patton Avenue home on Wednesday night.

Her former boyfriend, 45-year-old Michael Eitel, was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, was a fugitive Thursday, being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service task force.

Bowne’s death shocked her friends and neighbors, who described her as a bubbly, well-liked person. But her slaying also embittered some, who felt the system had failed to protect a woman in danger.

“She did absolutely everything she was supposed to,” said Denise Lovallo, a fellow hairdresser at O’Hara and Co. in Somerdale…

…Berlin Township Police Chief Leonard Check said Bowne applied for a gun license on April 21, and that she had inquired Monday about her request.

The application process typically takes two months or more as police collect information on the applicant, including fingerprints and reference checks. “We did not get the fingerprint information yet,” said Check.

Hey, gun banners. You have blood on your hands.
