Gun Permit Applications Quadruple in Anti-Gun New Jersey After Riots

New Jersey has the most restrictive laws in the country.

Applications for first-time gun owners in New Jersey have surged fourfold during the national race riots of summer 2020, with residents of the notoriously anti-gun state looking to arm themselves in response to national events.

New Jersey arguably has the most restrictive and draconian state gun control laws in the country. The state requires permits for gun ownership that are submitted to towns and cities, with the state police having the authority to deny gun ownership on critics argue are simply arbitrary grounds.

The Burlington Country Times is reporting that some New Jersey municipalities have reported a whopping 1,000% increase in applications for gun permits.

At least one gun shop owner is citing a reaction to left-wing activity and crime as a cause in the interest in gun ownership.

People have specifically mentioned the protests,” said Joe Hawk, owner of the Guns & Roses gun shop in Toms River. “People are telling us the same thing over and over again, they are literally panicked. They’re mentioning the taboo words, which of course are revolution…socialism, communism.

New Jersey Democrat Governor Phil Murphy had tried to shut down every gun store in the state as a coronavirus lockdown measure earlier in the year, perhaps spurring the increase in gun sales. His backdoor gun control attempt was shut down when the Department of Homeland Security labeled firearm stores to be essential retailers, with Murphy reversing the policy.

Gun industry experts have also reported that gun sales are surging in California, another Democrat state nationally known for its punitive laws against firearm ownership.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
