BELLEVUE, WA (January 29, 2013) – Firearms Policy Coalition, launched on Christmas Day in 2012, is quickly becoming one of America’s largest and most influential platforms for the advocacy of Second Amendment rights. New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) has formed a partnership with FPC to help secure the rights of New Jerseyans and all Americans, announced Coalition managing director Brandon Combs.
“It’s states like New Jersey and organizations like ours that will shape the future of the Second Amendment. We’re excited and proud to be helping to build the new gun rights culture and grassroots alongside so many other excellent organizations,” said Frank Jack Fiamingo, president of New Jersey Second Amendment Society. “This is the beginning of a new era in civil rights.”
While anti-gun groups like New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns say that states like New Jersey, which already has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, needs more laws in order to combat crime, “they’re shooting blanks,“ commented CCRKBA founder and chairman Alan Gottlieb. “If gun control makes cities safer, then Chicago should be a Utopian mecca by now. That’s clearly not the case.”
“We’re very proud to count New Jersey Second Amendment Society as a member of the Coalition,” said Combs. “Gun rights leadership and gun owners across the United States are joining together to collaboratively fight back against the anti-rights radicals who are pushing their agenda on Americans in our legislatures and in the mainstream media. Unity among groups like ours has never been more important than it is right now, and we look forward to partnering with advocates across the nation – especially those in battleground states like New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Connecticut.”
NJ2AS is helping to coordinate a rally in support of Second Amendment rights on Friday, February 8 at the New Jersey capitol in Trenton. The rally is scheduled to run from 10:00 a.m. until noon EST. Individuals from across the state will be participating in the peaceful demonstration, with over 8 full coach buses scheduled so far and more being planned in as demand continues to grow. Additional details about the rally can be found on the NJ2AS website at http://bit.ly/nj2arally.
