    Default NJ Supreme Court Unanimously Rules in Favor of Gun Rights,,, Wait What!?

    NJ Supreme Court Unanimously Rules in Favor of Gun Rights,,, Wait What!?
    https://www.ammoland.com/2020/01/nj-...=socialnetwork
    New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)- Overturning both a County Superior Court and an Appellate Division decision, the law firm of Evan F. Nappen, Attorney at Law successfully petitioned the NJ Supreme Court for a unanimous Opinion released today mandating that people must be provided with hearings whenever a court contemplates denying a handgun carry permit and that such hearings must be held within 30 days.

    New Jersey’s highest court today held that: “if a court has any questions regarding the applicant or his or her permit to carry application, it must hold a hearing to address those questions. The court should not simply deny the application.” “[A] hearing must be held whenever the court contemplates denying a handgun carry-permit[.]”

    NOTE: The above bold text for emphasis appears in the Supreme Court Opinion In Re Application for Permit to Carry a Handgun of Calvin Carlstrom and Syllabus.
    This is believed to be the first pro-gun rights decision ever issued unanimously by the New Jersey Supreme Court.

    So they'll just deny after the hearing?

    Hopefully I'm being pessimistic and this could be good news ...

    While this is good news, I really doubt they'll be any changes. One of the current things they do is just jerk you around for a year or more, never actually deny you, just never complete the paper work until you get tired of asking.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Looks more like “pro due process” than “pro gun”.

    The permitting process is so bad here that just about anything would be an improvement.

    The courts will now simply apply a hearing court costs surcharge of $1000 to every application.
    Any mission, any conditions, any foe at any range.
    Twice the mayhem, triple the force.
    Ten times the action, total hardcore.

    An applicant petitions a court for a permit to carry? Is that the procedure??
    Legislating to prevent people's acts is fantasy

    Looking at it from another point of view, it shows that the NJ supreme court may not be as anti gun as one expects. If other NJ gun laws get challenged and make it to the NJ supreme court it is a sign that they may rule in favor of gun rights, at least some of the time.

    Just looks like they want more of their cronies sitting on the bench.

    Yes, after application is made with local or state police.
