New Jersey: Tough to Get Gun Permit

Apparently it is very difficult to get a handgun permit in the state of NJ.  A New Jersey man, who was the victim of a kidnapping, was refused permission to carry and handgun for protection. Taking this off on a tangent I bring in Gov Christie. Christie, a republican darling, is not what many would call a supporter of gun rights. During his campaign for NJ governor he said he wouldn’t ask for any new laws on the books, but would enforce those already there. The NJ laws are very tough, as experienced by Brain Aitken, who was arrested, tried, and convicted for transporting guns he owns for Colorado to NJ. Christie later commuted his sentence, but it is still on Aitken’s record.
