New Jersey gun grabbers are not satisfied.
Even after Governor Phil Murphy signed comprehensive gun control into law, local gun grabbers in New Jersey are working hard to make it impossible for law-abiding citizens to acquire firearms.
A suburb of New Brunswick recently passed a resolution maintaining its anti-gun zoning codes.
An article from The Trace details the specifics of this anti-gun zoning ordinance:
“The resolution bans gun stores from opening within 1,000 feet of schools, parks, health care facilities, and other sensitive locations. While the new zoning law does not explicitly forbid gun stores from opening in the suburb, it makes dealers subject to conditions that almost no location meets.”
These type of zoning ordinances are not novel developments. California already has 24 municipalities featuring these anti-gun ordinances. Even New Jersey’s next-door neighbor, New York, has two cities with anti-gun zoning codes.
New Jersey is already one of the most anti-gun states in the country with Guns and Ammo magazine ranking it at a dismal 48th place.
Part of a larger scheme to destroy Second Amendment rights, gun controllers are looking to implement de facto gun bans where gun rights supporters least expect it.
Outright gun bans will draw out the most fervent gun rights supporters in opposition.
Nevertheless, a backdoor gun ban can slip under the public’s radar and get rammed through legislatures with very little opposition.
Given the Left’s dissatisfaction with the Trump administration on gun policy, the most logical course of action for them is to go local.
The rise of progressivism has been a story of big government activists operating locally but thinking globally. When they can’t get desired policies at the federal level, they will look to state legislatures instead.
States like New Jersey serve as launchpads for much larger anti-gun experiments further down the line.
The gun control beast’s thirst can’t be quenched once one state falls to anti-gun trickery.
Soon, all states look like juicy prospects in the gun controller’s eyes.
In times where gun control advocates are willing to go the extra mile to advance their anti-gun crusade, gun owners can’t afford to rest on their laurels.
There are no breaks in the fight to preserve American liberties.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
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.
