The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution assures us that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. The United States Supreme Court confirms that this is an individual right. And the United States Supreme Court has stated very clearly that the Second Amendment is binding upon the States.
“The States” (when last we looked) includes New Jersey. Unfortunately, New Jersey has not gotten the memo. The New Jersey Legislature and New Jersey State Police throw obstacle after obstacle in the way of citizens seeking to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms. Fortunately, citizens who are determined to exercise their Second Amendment rights have recourse. That recourse is to the courts--both to federal courts, and even to the courts of New Jersey.
Exercising gun rights in New Jersey is often difficult. Many barriers exist. The New Jersey State Police, New Jersey local police, and the New Jersey judiciary all service these barriers. They scrutinize past interactions with law enforcement personnel. They look with a jaundiced eye upon observation or treatment by mental health professionals. Commitment to a mental health facility even more so. In the majority of situations, all of these obstacles can be overcome. Overcoming these obstacles, however, is often costly, and seldom quick.
