ANJRPC Sues To Reopen Indoor Ranges









June 12, 2020. Today, ANJRPC filed a federal lawsuit to force the State of New Jersey to reopen indoor ranges, which have been shut down since a March 21 executive order by Governor Murphy. 

Now that Murphy has authorized the June 22 reopening of barber shops, nail salons, tanning salons, massage parlors, and spas, – indoor facilities that are non-essential and do not facilitate any Constitutionally protected activity – he can no longer pretend to have any legal argument for blocking the Second Amendment right of citizens to build and maintain firearms proficiency at indoor ranges.

A copy of the complaint in the lawsuit can be viewed by clicking here.

Gov. Murphy has used Coronavirus as an excuse to shut down Second Amendment activity since his March 21 executive order closed ranges and gun stores, in flagrant disregard of U.S. guidance that such facilities are essential and should be kept open. 

ANJRPC has since sued twice, to reopen both gun stores and outdoor ranges, and Murphy has backed down both times before a court could force his hand. But indoor ranges have remained shuttered, and ANJRPC exercised extreme self-restraint and has waited for the right moment to bring an indoor range case – and that moment has now arrived as Murphy has reopened numerous non-essential indoor activities that are not constitutionally protected.

The Second Amendment was designed precisely for the kind of emergency America now faces, to ensure that law-abiding citizens would be able not only to own firearms, but to train with them to develop and maintain proficiency to provide for their own safety if necessary.
