Meet the honest 27 year old single mom from PA who faces 3 years in a New Jersey prison
Shaneen Allen is no dangerous criminal. She's a single mom working 2 jobs who's already been robbed twice while traveling alone at night in Philadelphia. Her family suggested that she carry a gun for protection. She took a gun safety course, applied for and was granted a concealed carry permit, and bought a gun.
Then she made the mistake of driving into New Jersey.
Now she's going to prison.
Allen said that she didn't know her permit didn't apply to New Jersey so when she was stopped for a minor traffic offense she told the police about her gun and her permit to carry. In this case, being honest may have cost her.
"The judge tried to tell me that telling the truth messed me up, my life up and the cop said the same thing. Me opening my mouth and speaking out he said I'm one out of ten people that spoke up and was honest and that got me in trouble," she said.
Allen was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of hallow-point bullets which were in the gun. Under New Jersey gun laws, the illegal possession of a gun is a second-degree felony which holds a minimum sentence of three-years in prison.
I hope all you moms demanding "gun sense" are happy. Because your draconian gun laws are working. They're taking dangerous criminals like Shaneen Allen off the streets, and leaving her kids to fend for themselves.
Oh, but wait, elsewhere in New Jersey today
Atlantic City: Shortly before noon a man was shot in the back at the corner of Connecticut and Drexel Avenues.
Camden: 2 people were shot this morning at the Regency House Apartment complex.
Winslow Township: A teen is recovering after a stray bullet hit her through a bedroom wall.
Paterson: A 19 year old man was arrested in the shooting death of 12 year old Genesis Rincon, who was killed while riding her scooter.
Newark: The homicide toll now stands at 44 after Edison Javier Vasquez Naranjo, 27, was found shot outside a home on the 200 block of 4th Street near the city's Branch Brook Park.
Putting a 27 year old single mom in prison surely would have prevented all that, right?
Of course not. Only an idiot, or a member of Moms Demand Action (but I repeat myself), could think otherwise.
All the feel-good legislation in the world wouldn't have stopped today's (or any other) shootings. And locking up Shaneen Allen is a travesty. She'll rot in jail just so preening soccer moms can pat themselves on the back.
Because that's what our state calls "justice" these days.
Wanna bet the doughboy DOES NOT!
I hate, despise, loathe, and f*rt in the general direction of liberals.
I hope and pray that someday, somehow, they will come to their just end...and a just end is not a pleasant one.
Tell me how NJ can cancel out the Constitution? It would appear as if they are infringing upon her RKBA.
I see the NRA had her back.
The Police are not your friends.
Do not talk to them.
Do not volunteer any information.
It’s lucky she didn’t drive into Mexico!
... or have a dog in the car
.....or record the incident
This is becoming more evident every day.
if she were....OTW....thats Other Than White...he might act..
Did the hollow point bullets contain holy water?
Or were they just blessed before loading in the gun?
Except for that problem where he's a fat, liberal pussy. Other than that, yeah, no problem.
Oh, and Shaheen is definitely not guilty, either criminally OR photographically.
And you thought regular personal defense ammunition was expensive.
What does ammo rated for demons cost?
Reminds me of a story about a Marine currently residing in a mexican prison.
In NJ, only gangbangers and mafia are allowed to carry. Krispy kreme doesn’t want any of his homies to get all shot up while running their rackets.
The same way the other 49 States, the District of Columbia, and the Federal Government itself infringe on all of our RKBA. They defecate on the Constitution.
“And you thought regular personal defense ammunition was expensive.
What does ammo rated for demons cost?”
There is a long tradition of clergy blessing weapons.
As others may have guessed, I did not write the article, and am not about to edit someone else’ work without their permission.
