Russell v NJ - May-issue carry license


Recommended Posts


... the state of New Jersey reserves for itself the prerogative to determine on a case-by-case basis whether citizens have sufficiently compelling reasons to exercise their right to carry handguns.


... a resident of the District of Columbia or Hawaii has a right to bear arms for self-defense (as does a resident of the vast majority of states that respect the right to bear arms), but a resident of New York or Maryland does not. A citizen in Pennsylvania may exercise his right to bear arms in Pennsylvania, but not if he crosses the Delaware River into New Jersey. Such is the condition of the present Petitioner who is being denied a license to exercise his right by the state of New Jersey because he does not meet New Jersey's need-based standard.


It is time for this Court to harmonize the discord between the states.
