The United States Supreme Court said on Monday morning it will not consider a case that would define rights related to concealed gun permits in New Jersey and potentially across the country.

The case of Drake v. Jerejian was heard in private conference by the nine Justices recently. Orders were issued today and the Drake case was listed among those cases denied by the Court.
A petition was filed with the Court in January 2014. The petitioners, led by attorney Alan Gura, wanted answers to two questions: whether the Second Amendment secures a right to carry handguns outside of the home for self-defense and if New Jersey officials violated that right by requiring people to prove a justifiable need for carrying a handgun for self-defense outside their homes.

Section 6. The Militia and the standing army of 1,000. So as to insure and guarantee the rights guaranteed in this Constitution, every natural born male in the Republic of Maine, upon reaching the age of 18 years from conception through age 67 years from conception, has, as a member of the Militia, the obligation to keep and bear arms for the common defense, for his and his families protection, to defend against this government or any government in the future from becoming oppressive, tyrannical, or in any other way obnoxious to freedom, and to secure the rights written in this Constitution. This obligation shall never be questioned. No law shall be passed that restricts this obligation, except for time in a local jail, county jail or Maine Republic prison. No law shall be passed, test given, or fee assessed to any citizen of the Republic of Maine, age 18 from the age of conception, both male and female, that would restrict in any way that citizens right to be armed either concealed or open. Males who are found to be or confess to being homosexuals are refused entry and from serving in either the Militia or the standing army. Males over the age of 67 may be voluntary members of the Militia with the full rights of Militia members. Natural born males between the age of 16 years from conception to 18 years from conception may volunteer for Militia service with the written permission of parents or guardians. The standing army of 1,000 shall be drawn from the Militia by the commander of the Militia and is under the command of the commander of the Militia who is appointed by and reports directly to the President.
It will take blood to restore it.
All that means is that it is a State issue.
The erosion of this right took place in New Jersey a long time ago. This isn’t a change, this is the SCOTUS deciding not to overturn what NJ has been doing for a very long time.
“So, there you have it. You have no right to carry outside your home without begging for permission.”
Ahh....in Cristie’s wonderful blue state of New Jersey.
You may be correct, Jagdgewehr. It may well take blood.
However, we are talking about NJ, in this case. And, NJ is living with the government they elected.
You can’t order a slingshot in New Jersey. You need a permit to buy a BB gun. Nuff said.
NJ is living with the government Newark, Camden, and Trenton elected.
Or maybe the Criminals stopped carrying guns outside of their homes.
You’ll shoot your eye out!
This began before Chris Christie was even born.
This is how SCOTUS obtains “long standing prohibition,” so previously unconstitutional infringements can be transmogrified into constitutional limitations.
I can’t imagine living in a worse hell-hole than NJ within Amerika’s borders. Maybe Compton, CA....or Presidio, TX (at least they have gun rights though).
People get the gov’t they deserve.
And the AMISH have all the guns they want and don’t care bout no STINKIN” laws.
Coming Soon!!!!!! To The People’s Republic of New Jersey! Magazine maximums of 10 rounds down from 15! Will the “fat man “ sign it or veto it when it is passed by the Senate ?
Fine. All the law abiding, hard working Americans will soon move to other states where rights are recognized and freedom prevails.
Where an armed society is a polite society.
Then these cities will go the way of Chicago and Detroit. While the guilty white liberals live in fear and insecurity, the gangbabgers and thugs will have open season on them.
And Jersey will end up just like EVERY OTHER LIBERALLY CONTROLLED CITY = a crime-ridden welfare cesspool.
“””maybe the Criminals stopped carrying guns outside of their homes.””””
Of course. Everyone knows that gangbangers, drug dealers, thieves, rapists, and murderers obey guns laws.
TO ALL NEW JERSEY FREEPERS:::::
I am sorry you live in that state.
Where I am from, I can walk into a strip mall (because here gun stores are in strip malls) show my CCW, by ten guns, go across the street, buy ten more... walk home on the street carrying them all and the friendly people here wave at me like I am just a normal neighbor.
At least not in New Jersey. And I would say the 10th Amendment gives them the right to make that decision. Looks like the Supreme Court agrees.
