CAMDEN, NJ (December 22, 2022) – Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced the filing of a new Second Amendment Challenge seeking to overturn multiple elements of the recently enacted NJ A4769 Gun Control Bill. The Complaint in FPC’s Koons v. Reynolds, along with other case documents, can be viewed at FPCLaw.org.
“[The] new “sensitive place” and vehicle transport restrictions [in this bill] are so far reaching and punitive that they effectively obliterate the ability to bear arms in public for the purpose of protecting one’s self and family—which the Supreme Court has ruled to be the “core” of the Second Amendment’s protections,” the Complaint states.
“In passing this legislation, New Jersey’s lawmakers and Governor Phil Murphy have decided to thumb their collective noses at the United States Supreme Court and the Constitution,” Said FPC Director of Legal Operations Bill Sack. “And once again FPC has stepped up and will fight back on behalf of the peaceable people of New Jersey who are sick and tired of having their rights trounced for political gain.”
FPC is joined in the litigation by Second Amendment Foundation, Coalition of New Jersey Firearms Owners, and New Jersey Second Amendment Society.
