You wouldn’t guess it based on the way the politicians behave, but the Statue of Liberty is actually located in New Jersey. Not that New York is any better, but she weeps for the down-trodden from the land of diners. The recent New Jersey anti-gun package of bills is something I was really not going to write about again for a little while. I’ve explored this topic two other times recently here on Bearing Arms and once over at AmmoLand. Both Tom and Cam have weighed in on these proposals more than once. But, alas, a soon to be former lawmaker made some of the dumbest remarks that were quoted in an NJ 101.5 article, that I just can’t help myself. Failed Assemblywoman Joann Downey, the primary sponsor of A.5647 “requires mandatory storage of firearms and renders self-defense obsolete” had some stunningly obtuse remarks to make.
