The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs, the official NRA state affiliate, has taken initial steps to overturn the NJ State Police training requirements that were issued last week.
Those requirements absurdly compel ordinary citizens to meet the same training requirements as members of law enforcement in order to obtain a carry permit.
Requiring average citizens to meet police-level training requirements is being mandated purely to make it much harder for the average citizen to qualify to obtain a carry permit in the first place.
Additionally, many of those requirements relate solely to law enforcement functions having nothing to do with the exercise of self-defense rights by average citizens.
Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs counsel Dan Schmutter has asked the lower federal court in the carry-killer lawsuit to reopen the case to assert new claims to overturn the new training regulations. On our Carry Lawsuit Filings page you can scroll down to item #30 to see a copy of those papers. Assuming the request is granted, additional papers detailing the claims will be filed (and we will issue another alert at that time).
In a future alert, the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs will be seeking gun owners interested in joining the lawsuit if they meet certain criteria which will be specified. Please watch for that alert.
