Unfortunately, in many states that do not recognize the Second Amendment, gun crimes are not only equipped with severe penalties, but they also are prosecuted in a very black-and-white fashion with little room for mitigating circumstance. Thankfully, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie used his executive power to right a wrong.
The possible 2016 Republican presidential hopeful pardoned aspiring police officer Steffon Josey-Davis, who was arrested in 2013 for having his legally owned firearm in his glove compartment.
According to Fox News Insider:
Steffon Josey-Davis was cleaning his gun back in 2013 when his 6-year-old sister walked in. He didn’t want her around the gun, so he said he put the firearm in his glove compartment and forgot about it.
Hours later, Josey-Davis was pulled over, and he told police that he had a gun in his glove compartment. Police took the gun and told him to pick it up the next day.
When he showed up for his gun, he was cuffed and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm.
Josey-Davis, who had been working as an armed security guard, legally purchased the gun, but did not yet have the permit to carry it.
Josey-Davis was elated when he learned of the pardon Monday morning.
“I feel great,” he told Fox News adding how thankful he was for their support.
He said he still planned on being a law enforcement officer and was grateful to Christie for the pardon.
“If he runs for president, he has my vote,” he said.
Christie may not be the choice for conservatives in 2016, but Christie is a great Republican governor of such a liberal state and should continue to make a difference in New Jersey by staying there and remaining as their governor.
