Federal judge temporarily blocks unconstitutional New Jersey victim disarmament law

Source: Politico

“A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked part of a newly-enacted New Jersey law that prohibits guns from being carried in certain parts of the state. U.S. District Judge Renée Marie Bumb, sitting in Camden, issued a temporary restraining order for a section of the law that specifically bans guns from being carried in public libraries or museums, bars or restaurants that serve alcohol and entertainment facilities. One catch-all provision barring guns from being carried on private property where the owner did not explicitly grant permission was also blocked, as was another section that prohibits guns from being carried in vehicles unless they are unloaded and stored in a closed area. The challenge to the new law, which Gov. Phil Murphy signed in late December, was brought by gun-rights groups.” (01/09/23)
