Feb. 8 Nationwide Rally In Defense of 2nd Amendment

Ron Soussa is a Montville small businessman and a nationally certified firearms instructor and range safety officer.

New Jersey’s 1 million law-abiding gun owners share in the horror of Adam Lanza’s slaughter of 20 defenseless children in Connecticut.  He used stolen guns after—in his gruesome spree. We join with the rest of our nation in demanding that steps be taken (jewelers can have armed guards to protect their valuables, why not protect our children with the same vigilance?)  to reduce the likelihood of such a mass atrocity happening again.

President Obama has taken his former chief of ataff’s advice not to “let any crisis go to waste.”  He lost no time in seeking legislation that both does nothing to inhibit future Lanzas ("gun free zones" still leave children undefended), but also severely infringes upon the 2nd Amendment rights of all citizens. 

New Jersey 2nd Amendment Society members are alarmed at the proposed additional restrictions on our rights and will be joining other 2nd Amendment groups across the nation on Feb. 8 who will gather at their respective state capitals simultaneously to  exhibit our support for the sole amendment to the U.S. Constitution that defends all of the others.

Buses to Trenton leave from a dozen locations throughout New Jersey, including Morris County. The site closest to Parsippany and Montville is the Montville Office Plaza at 330 Changebridge Road in Pine Brook; the cost is $20.

Registration information is available at http://www.nj2as.com/EVENTS?eventId=605978&EventViewMode=EventDetails.  

Additional details are available on Facebook.

New Jersey gun owners are quickly gaining a voice.  Gun For Hire Radio, which is taped weekly, became one of the top rated podcasts on iTunes in less than a year, and has a following around the world.  The New Jersey 2nd Amendment Society itself is less than 3 years old, and has rapidly become known to political leaders and legislators on both sides of the aisle.

Please join with this fast growing group of 2nd Amendment defenders in Trenton on Feb. 8.

Thank you Chris Gardes. Responding with facts and logic, to the puppets and others who hide behind screen names and assorted lies, in a very well written manner is a rare talent. If you're not already aware, www.NJ2AS.com has made "Operation Establish Compliance" - which requires municipalites (through methods including litigation) to comply with, and not exceed, NJ's already onerous and restrictive firearms regulations. Some towns were making up their own rules; requiring credit reports, letters from employers and spouses, and dramatically exceeding the statutory response period. Fortunately we are starting to make some progress.

Oh, and Sock Puppet, a "militia" was formed on September 11, 2001 over eastern Pennsylvania, where a group of citizens fought back against the islamist terrorists who intended to murder as many innocents as possible. The "militia" is "We, the people". We are the last line of defense against enemies, foreign AND domestic, who seek to enslave us or destroy our liberties and freedom. TENS of millions of innocent lives have been extinguished in the 20th Century alone by governments who managed to disarm their citizens. WE, the people, are all that stands in the way of it happening again. See "Innocents Betrayed" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40lqavdk7A8) for a history refresher.

This is for sock puppet <--- what you don't have a name?.... anyway.... History lesson for you.... In United States v. Miller, After reciting the original provisions of the Constitution dealing with the militia, the Court observed that “with obvious purpose to assure the continuation and render possible the effectiveness of such forces the declaration and guarantee of the Second Amendment were made. It must be interpreted with that end in view.” The significance of the militia, the Court continued, was that it was composed of “civilians primarily, soldiers on occasion.” It was upon this force that the States could rely for defense and securing of the laws, on a force that “comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense,” who, “when called for service . . . were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.” That was the Supreme Courts ruling .... The key things are "composed of “civilians primarily "....." were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.” I think that is pretty explanatory
