ANJRPC Warns Towns On Shutdown of Firearms Permitting
 

 

 

 

 

 

ANJRPC WARNING TO ALL NJ TOWNS:
DON'T EVEN 
THINK ABOUT USING CORONAVIRUS AS
AN EXCUSE TO SHUT DOWN GUN PERMITTING

March 18, 2020. Today, ANJRPC convinced one NJ town to voluntarily reverse its shutdown of firearms permitting due to Coronavirus, and is issuing this warning to every other permitting authority in NJ: Don't even THINK of using Coronavirus as an excuse to stop processing firearms permits and credentials.

"Times of emergency are precisely the times when people need the right to protect themselves and their families the most," said ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach. "ANJRPC will not tolerate any attempt by any municipality to interrupt the firearms permitting process for any reason, and will spare no effort or expense to protect the right of law-abiding New Jerseyans to obtain firearms."

ANJRPC attorney Dan Schmutter stated: "It is absolutely unlawful for a local authority that has been injected into the firearms acquisition process to shut down that process because it is unable or unwilling to maintain it during times of emergency -- when Constitutional rights must be protected the most. Towns must either fulfill their Constitutional obligation to maintain an acquisition process, or be eliminated from the process itself. Shutting down the process is simply not an option."

If you become aware of any permitting authority in NJ that attempts to shut down the firearms permitting process due to Coronavirus, please contact us immediately at strikeforce@anjrpc.org so that ANJRPC can address it.

Please stay safe during this challenging time, and know that ANJRPC will continue to be vigilant in protecting our Second Amendment rights no matter what.
