CAMDEN, NJ (January 9, 2023) – Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced the successful acquisition of a Temporary Restraining Order against multiple aspects of New Jersey’s new gun control regime. The Opinion in FPC’s Koons v. Reynolds, along with other case documents, can be viewed at FPCLaw.org.

“[A]t oral argument, this Court specifically pressed the State whether it had empirical evidence to suggest that concealed carry permit holders are responsible for gun crimes or an increase in gun crimes in New Jersey, which they cite as justification for the law. However, the State had no such evidence," the Opinion states.

“Within seconds of Gov. Murphy signing this insidious bill, FPC Law filed a challenge to its constitutionality,” said FPC Director of Legal Operations Bill Sack. “We are thrilled that the Court has wasted no time in preventing its enforcement and the irreparable constitutional injury that would have otherwise been suffered by our Plaintiffs and all of the peaceable people of New Jersey.”

FPC is joined in the litigation by Second Amendment Foundation, Coalition of New Jersey Firearms Owners, and New Jersey Second Amendment Society.
