Federal Judge Blocks Most of N.J. Concealed Carry Law

Thursday, May 18, 2023 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) – A federal judge on Tuesday ruled most of a New Jersey concealed carry law that prevents licensed firearm owners from carrying guns in government buildings and libraries, among other locations, unconstitutional in a victory for gun rights advocates.

Renée Marie Bumb, chief judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, issued a preliminary injunction blocking bill A4769 that declares much of the state is a “sensitive place” where residents who obtain permits to carry firearms can’t go armed.

The state was responding to the landmark Supreme Court ruling last year in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen, in which the court’s conservative majority in a 6-3 decision said a 1911 New York law requiring gun owners to show “proper cause” to gain a concealed carry permit was unconstitutional, and ruled the ability to carry a pistol in public was a constitutional right under the Second Amendment.
