New Jersey is not a state that respects Second Amendment rights. Not only did a retired New Jersey man get thrown in jail for having a collectible antique gun, but the state is also incredibly stingy with issuing concealed carry permits.
This worries two New Jersey pastors. They want to be able to offer a defense in the event that someone enters their churches intent on harming worshippers. Pastor Kevin Bernat and Pastor Jeffrey Kovach are trying to get concealed carry permits. And they have stumbled upon roadblocks courtesy of the state of New Jersey.
There are only 1,600 concealed carry permits issued in the entire state of New Jersey. The state allows local officials to deny these permits by their own choosing.
The pastors appeared on Chasing News to discuss their uphill battle with the State of New Jersey.
Why do you think New Jersey doesn’t honor Second Amendment rights? Please comment below.
