Should NJ Loosen the Handgun Laws? [POLL]

The state’s Supreme Court has agreed to consider an appeal to the toughest gun-control law in New Jersey, first introduced in 1924, which people must show “justifiable need” if they want permits to carry handguns.

A federal appeals court recently upheld the same New Jersey law in a separate cse. noting that states can require residents seeking the right to carry handguns to prove theyhave an “urgent necessity for self-protection.”

Those who support gun rights say ordinary citizens almost never get permits to carry handguns because the law is one of the most restrictive in the country and judges rarely find a reason to arm any normal citizen.

Do you think NJ would be safer if citizens were able to carry a handgun? Take our poll and let us know what you think.
