Gun rights group: NJ’s government conspires to take away your rights

HANOVER — When a gun rights group meets in Whippany Tuesday night, its members will hear from one of the state legislature’s staunchest gun rights supporters — libertarian-leaning Republican Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll.

“Contrary to popular belief, we do retain the right to both keep and carry firearms for lawful purposes,” the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, which goes by the acronym NJ2AS, wrote in an event listing promoting the meeting. “That right is as valid here as it is anywhere else on the planet.

“However, what you must understand is that if you exercise that right, the three branches of NJ government will conspire against you, convict you of a felony and send you to prison.”

The group is pushing for changes to New Jersey’s gun laws — among the strictest in the country. And that makes Carroll a natural fit as a guest speaker.

For nearly two decades, Carroll has been the primary sponsor of always-unsuccessful Citizens Protection Act — which would require New Jersey to grant concealed-carry permits to anyone who demonstrates competence with a firearm, and who isn’t otherwise prohibited from owning guns.
