    Well over fifty 2nd Amendment Patriots from all over New Jersey, most of whom are CNJFO members, gathered at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays in Coplay, PA Sunday to raise money for lawsuits to fight NJ's half-century of unchecked gun control. Sporting clays is both challenging and fun, beginner-friendly, and most closely resembles birds in flight, which makes for great practice during pheasant season. Smashing orange discs flying through the air & rolling along the ground from every possible angle, our shotgunners were warm in spirit, with abundant smiles and camaraderie.

    Thanks to help from CNJFO Patriot Pin recipients Carmen Urso and Jerry Arose, who both came early to help Clays Co-Chair Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal unload his "War Wagon" and set-up the room, at sign-in each shooter was given a Gun For Hire goody bag loaded with useful items. Newly-designed (by graphic artist and former CNJFO President Matt Andras) "CNJFO Dusters And Missers Club" royal blue 5-color crewneck sweatshirts with crossed shotguns & orange clays were gifted to every participant (we have a few for SALE!) as squad assignments were read aloud.

    Prestigious Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays was once again chosen due to a number of factors, none more appealing than their unique and pristine16-station, 100-bird course surrounding an abandoned limestone quarry. Since it's a bit of a drive to Lehigh, CNJFO always provides professional catering, including a continental breakfast at sign-in and a hamburger and pulled pork BBQ lunch immediately after. Our scattergunners traversed the course in style, as each squad of four was assigned a golf cart customized to hold shotguns, ammo and anything else you'd need to enjoy your day.

    During our BBQ lunch, Mark Cheeseman, last years' U.S. Supreme Court Petitioner in case #19-27 (denied CERT with the 9 other 2A cases before the Court!), was introduced. During his remarks Cheeseman thanked everyone for attending and highly praised the Coalition for our help, stating the fact that we were the only 2A group in NJ to file an amicus brief on his behalf.

    Mark then introduced our main speaker, well-known NJ gun law historian Jay Factor. Factor explained how our amicus brief detailed the ugly truth highlighting the fact that the NJ legislature never actually voted on how firearms carry permitting is to take place, as well as who did it & what actually happened so many long years ago. Cheeseman and Factor also thanked us for the $11,000 check we presented to them as a result of our "matching funds campaign", where CNJFO did a dollar-for-dollar match of donations earmarked for their case, using funds raised at various fundraisers such as Sunday's Clays Tournament.

    Thanks to our gracious sponsors, a handsome prize table was set-up, adorned with swag and valuable gifts a-plenty to tantalize our "Dusters And Missers Club" members. Toward the end of our BBQ lunch, CNJFO Vice President Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal sold raffle prize tickets and fellow Patriot Pin recipient Jon MacMillan followed with 50-50 tickets. CNJFO President Dan Grdovic together with Jack Pyle, CNJFO Clays Co-Chair & Treasurer, assisted with prize deliveries to all points of the pole barn, while Life Member Rhiannon Teng took pictures of our happy prize winners (see photos). CNJFO Patriot Pin recipient Jerry Arose won the 50-50.

    Pyle, our behind-the-scenes magician that makes everything appear to "flow" so well at our events, ordered trophies for High Lady, High Man, and High Squad. We presented "Duster And Misser" Rhiannon Teng with the High Lady trophy, for her score of 72 broken targets. Due to a malfunction, she had to finish her round with a borrowed scattergun from squad leader Stuart Gepp. Undaunted by the misfortune, she showed great competitive spirit by finishing at the top of the Ladies leaderboard.

    Freehold Fin, Fur, and Feather Club sent three squads to our fundraiser, the most of any club represented, with several shooting at Lehigh for the first time. "Dusters And Missers" Squad #4, comprised of 4F Club members Joe Johnson, Tom Ward, Gordon Haskell, and Stephen Ferraro took the High Squad trophies with an 81 average score. Squad leader Joe Johnson won the High Man trophy for breaking 90 targets. Closest score to Johnson's was fellow 4F Club member Greg Belanger's 86 broken targets, followed by CNJFO's Rosenthal and Arose (Squad #1) tying for the 3rd place finish with 84 broke. Honorable mention goes to CNJFO member and squad #2 leader Stuart Gepp for 83 broken targets.

    No matter their scores, everyone that participated is a winner in our books! We thank them for their patriotism AND their support of our mission to end NJ's unconstitutional "Justifiable Need", the provision that basically says you need to be "connected" OR killed to be a CCW permit holder in the Communist People's Republic of New Jerseystan. For more info on "Justifiable Need", please visit: www.JustifiableNeed.com .

    CNJFO VP Dave Rosenthal will attend this Sunday's 4F Club Trap Shoot in Freehold Twp., NJ to award the five trophies. The 4F Club has been supporting us at past events, and this fact has just recently come to light. We'd like to publicly thank 4F Club member Chris Marron for introducing 4F Club members to NJ's busiest 2A organization by bringing some friends to hunt pheasants with us at Giberson Farms (we'll be there on Sat. February 6th, 2021! -- Sign-Up HERE: www.cnjfo.com/event-4052517 ).

    Darin Goens, in his official capacity as NRA-ILA's NJ Director, made Coalition history by attending our Clays Tournament and brought several handsome backpacks for our prize table. Goens couldn't stay for the raffle, but did want to let everyone know he & NRA-ILA appreciates their continued support in our battleground state.

    Cheryl Sloan-Malitz and Lorraine Crescimanno, both from The Well Armed Woman Chapters, shot clays with their husbands Howard & Len. The foursome had a wonderful time and we thank our 2A sisters for their steadfast support. Lorraine & Len Crescimanno hunted hogs with us in April of last year and she's registered for our next Hog Hunt this January 3rd. You too can register for the Hunt HERE: www.cnjfo.com/event-3676112

    We're also proud to report some good-hearted "vandalism" took place in the Lehigh parking lot to Rosey's car. Affectionately known to many as "The War Wagon", an overstuffed, nearly-antique Mercury Grand Marquis with a 6-Body trunk & HUGE backseat, Rosey's ride is the official "CNJFO swagmobile". As such it became the victim of sign maker Angelo Yacone and CNJFO sponsor Black Bag Resources' owner Sean Fisher, both friends of the "Vic". The pair of miscreants conspired to adorn the vehicle with magnetic signage that lets the NJDOT know there's EXPLOSIVES contained therein. Dan Grdovic, CNJFO President, was in on the caper and advised Fisher when to execute "Operation Lehigh" with the help of his younger son (see photos, lol!).

    3-Gunnin' Grandma Ronnie Siegel Mark started New Jersey's only "A Girl & A Gun" Women's Shooting League chapter in her living room, and then Covid shut down every range in the state. Undeterred, Mark got a group of women together to learn the fundamentals of gun handling and safety. Last night at RTSP's Union, NJ range, about a dozen and a half women from all walks of life engaged paper targets, became EMPOWERED, and had FUN while they LEARNED the basics. Mark told us the group photo shows only half of their registered members, and they're still growing!

    After the live-fire training, the women shooters league was given a classroom where Mark demonstrated proper dry-fire techniques and then conducted personalized one-on-one dry-fire lessons with each shooter based upon shooting observations in the range. Improvements in grip, stance and breathing will make an impact, build confidence and increase the FUN factor too! So far the league has four Range Officers: Ronnie, her husband John, Kim Snyder, and Linda Mitchell. Snyder and Mitchell work with the first-timers. Plans are to conduct two shoots a month so everyone gets to shoot.

    The Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners is proud to recognize this commitment to women's shooting and hopes to interview some of these remarkable women soon. Mark took one of the league members under her wing, and the pair recently shot a static steel match in nearby Guthsville, PA. To learn more about this dynamic group, please visit:

    Tues. Nov. 3, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    Sussex County, New Jersey Deputy Freeholder Director Dawn Fantasia, a single mother of 3, is awakened at Zero Dark Thirty by unwanted parties on her property exiting their vehicle. Pistol in-hand, she calls 911 from her bedside at 2:30am and her local Police respond in 5 minutes. They do a thorough perimeter check, finding neither the vehicle or its unwanted occupants, chat about her having a pistol is a good thing, and clear the scene. 18 months ago, the unarmed Fantasia would have been a fearful wreck. Not so this time, as she estimates she had only 1/10th of the fear since "I have the great equalizer---my Sig Sauer pistol"!

    Fantasia is very astute to the discriminatory practices of our state's leadership when it comes to gun control and how it affects lower and middle class New Jerseyians:

    "The Red Tape and hoops you have to jump through, the months of waiting, Governor Murphy's BLATANT (attempted) discriminatory fee schedule ($200+ for 1st gun--Ed.) is nothing more than a GUN CONTROL SCHEME! When NJ residents need guns the most, they're BLOCKED! Covid was used to shut down all the gun stores and ranges; that's unconstitutional. Legal guns aren't the problem, they never were!"---Dawn Fantasia

    Her journey into firearms ownership started just 18 months ago, when she was invited to attend a sporting clays fundraiser at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays in Coplay, PA. (the same venue we're holding our CNJFO fundraiser on Sunday Nov. 15th (www.cnjfo.com/Event-4007823). With law enforcement officers and hunters in her family, she's been around firearms virtually her entire life, but had never shot before. That changed 18 months ago with a simple invite and getting over any fears.

    Shooting sporting clays was as much fun as it was eye-opening. For the first time in her life she felt "empowered" by a firearm. You KNOW that feeling, every gun owner does. The ability to stand up and declare you won't be a victim because you have learned to use a tool for survival.

    "I'm there, I'm surrounded by all these men, and I wasn't comfortable--at first. That changed rather quickly. They accepted me, showed me what to do and were very encouraging. I got comfortable, something I've found (since that day) is really easy to do with the shooting community. People that shoot are so NICE! I was hooked and wanted to protect my family. That's when I bought my Sig!"---Dawn Fantasia

    Fantasia picked up her .380 Sig P238 compact at Pequest Sporting Goods and loves the magazines with built-in extension so she can wrap her pinky finger around the grip for better control of the compact pistol. Her wish list includes a 9mm Sig P226 and a 20 gauge shotgun. We weighed-in on her excellent choices, suggesting a 20 ga. youth model, gas-operated semi-auto shotgun with a rubber butt pad for both correct "fit" and reduced recoil (she had a bruise from not knowing how to shoot a 12 ga.).

    Realizing that firearms ownership comes with responsibility, Fantasia sought out hand gun training with NRA Training Counselor Paul Raynolds. The full-day NRA Pistol class was held at the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs Cherry Ridge Range in Highland Lakes, Vernon Twp., NJ. She posted a photo of her certificate on her Facebook page, so we borrowed it (see images).

    A staunch 2nd Amendment proponent, Fantasia practices at Gun For Hire and at Reloaderz-NJ ranges, often bringing her 17 year old daughter, who's really accepting of the shooting lifestyle. Recently Dawn doubled her target distance to 10 yards while still maintaining decent groups with her compact Sig. She's shot other guns, including long guns at these ranges (see photos).

    CNJFO strongly believes that women and their offspring will save our precious 2nd Amendment, since it's usually the Mom that forbids firearms in the home. By getting more moms to the range, we have a better chance of Anthony Colandro's "EACH ONE, REACH ONE!" mantra taking effect.

    Most ranges have women-only shooting clubs, so it's even easier these days. Check out the Second Amendment Women Shooting Club (http://sawshootingclub.com) based at the Gun For Hire Woodland Park Range and The Well Armed Woman has 5 chapters in NJ:

    https://twawshootingchapters.org/find-a-local-chapter . So please help us and bring a new person to the range SOON! You never know---YOU might empower THEM to do what Dawn Fantasia did!

    by John Petrolino for Black Wire Media Sun. Nov. 1, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    Mince no words about it, New Jersey is anti-freedom and thus, they are anti Second Amendment. There is a conspiracy between all branches of government and the media, the fourth estate is a co-conspirator in these antics. Any chance they get, they will paint the most grotesque or negative picture they can.

    From Patterson New Jersey, October 28, 2020, “The Daily Voice” reported in a headline:

    “Paterson PD: Boy, 15, Caught Carrying Pair Of High-Powered Handguns, Magazines, More”

    Even at first glance, there is no doubt that this is involving criminal behavior, but that behavior does not let the Patterson PD or “The Daily Voice” off the hook as far as accurate reporting goes. A closer read of the article states:

    “A 15-year-old Paterson boy was caught carrying two handguns with large-capacity magazines, authorities said.”

    And further:

    “Both are 9mm semi-automatic Taurus handguns fitted with fully-loaded high-capacity magazines...”

    These biases and optics are carefully crafted and it’s important to take note. The media does everything and anything in their power to associate firearms with a further, often times erroneous, negative connotation.

    Granted, this news article would be breezed over by many, as its just another criminal, doing criminal things in New Jersey…Which begs another question, a digression, “Why are 15 year old’s running around with guns in Patterson New Jersey?” What is going on there? And why does Patterson not have their house in order? Sounds like the leadership in Patterson needs to be approached about what is going wrong in their City.

    The negative optics in this piece revolve around considering 9mm handguns to be “high-powered”, as the headline tries to hook in uninitiated readers. No place on the planet are 9mm Taurus handguns in any way “high-powered”. Okay, if you’re comparing them to BB guns, also “firearms” in New Jersey, sure. But to every other freedom loving gun owner in America, no. This labeling of the arms as “high-powered” is patently fake, phony, and false.

    Also worth exploring is the magazine capacity of the arms being “high-capacity.” Its doubtful that a 15 year old that was illegally concealing two pistols was able to do so with “high-capacity” magazines in the guns. They’d be too long. However, in New Jersey, anything over ten rounds is considered “high-capacity”. More negative optics, as ten rounds is below the threshold of standard capacity in many pistols in The United States. Oftentimes 15 or 17+ rounds are “standard”. The article failed to mention how high the high-capacity of these guns in fact were.

    Bravo to Patterson PD and “The Daily Voice.” You have added another piece of false facts into media circulation for those that don’t know any better to consume.


    Yes, we did this to start a conversation! What the hell is going-on in the "Hood" of Paterson, NJ that 15 year olds need to carry TWO 9mm hand guns? Gang initiation? Selling a gun illegally? What about the defaced gun with missing serial number being a federal crime with FEDERAL TIME? Will he "give-up" his supplier and get a PLEA DEAL? Is this his first scuffle with the LAW? Is he a hardened criminal with a violent past that's been locked-up before OR did he have to do what he did so a family member wouldn't be murdered? Where is the REAL "Meat & Potatoes" of the story that readers need to know? It's all MISSING! And that leaves the low-education reader to BLAME THE GUN!

    Guns are BAD and only bad people and the Cops have GUNZ? See what we did there?

    Staffer John Petrolino is an author, writer, and NRA Firearms Instructor. He's "HIGH CAPACITY", and his pieces make you THINK! We're glad to have this Merchant Marine on-board, pointing-out what main stream media outlets seldom, if ever, do. We hope you like his articles as much as we do publishing them. Ammoland, The Truth About Guns,  The Shore News Network and other pro-2A outlets are also honored to receive his work.

    Private shooting clubs is where freedom lives! Some say they're "all-in" when it comes to the 2nd Amendment, but it's just words on paper bylaws in a filing cabinet. Others, such as Freehold Fin, Fur and Feather Club, put both their actions AND their wallets into steadfastly protecting it by attending Second Amendment fundraisers and promoting shooting to women and kids. Last Sunday the Coalition had the pleasure of attending a sporting clays match held at their club. Here's the story...

    We received the invite from Chris Marron, a club member that had attended our pheasant hunt fundraiser last season at Giberson Farms. He and his squad of bird hunters enjoyed our camaraderie and are impressed by our mission. So the "4F Club" as it's known locally, has been supporting the Coalition for years, we just weren't made aware of it. That is until last week. Marron, having already signed up to attend our Lehigh fundraiser, called to explain and put us in touch with Ray Seborowski, 4F Club's sporting clays chairman. Marron and Seborowski run the sporting clays together, and they talked-up our upcoming fundraiser being held Sunday Nov. 15th at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays to their fellow members, garnering us approx. three squads of four clay crushers each!

    We're still registering for our 11-15 Lehigh fundraiser to benefit our lawsuit and general funds, so please join us HERE: www.cnjfo.com/Event-4007823

    Ray Seborowski is a retired biology teacher, having taught at Old Bridge HS for decades. An avid bird hunter, he's an "institution" at the 4F Club, and has been a volunteer NJF&W Hunter Education Instructor for generations of NJ hunters. We got to watch him work with new shooters Bridgit and her daughter Mia, as the pair were new to sporting clays (see photos). Firm on safety but gentle on fine adjustments, soft-spoken Ray is a "natural" with women and kids, his many years of experience is both obvious and comforting. Bridgit and Mia broke several targets, with huge smiles of accomplishment as everyone cheered them on.

    CNJFO Communications Director Theresa Inacker took Bridgit and daughter Mia aside for some pointers from a woman's perspective.

    Inacker loaned Bridgit her padded shooting vest after Bridgit confided she started feeling the recoil as a first-timer. The vest did the trick and Bridgit broke more targets (see photos).

    Joining Inacker were CNJFO's Treasurer Jack Pyle and Vice President Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal, who is also Editor in-Chief of Black Wire Media, CNJFO's news organization. The three Coalition executives represent only half of the groups board of trustees, as running NJ's most active 2A group is a 7-days-a-week proposition.

    Our three "Dusters & Missers", a phrase coined by Rosenthal that is being printed on sweatshirts given to every shooter at the Nov. 15th Clays event, did more missing than dusting. That didn't affect the camaraderie or FUN as we all enjoyed a crisp fall day in the woods. Presentations included both manually-cocked traps and electrics from multiple angles which offered a real challenge. Ray said it wasn't going to be easy and he was right! Midi-sized clays at treetop level, regulation-sized birds in the deep woods with changing leaves, and utilization of their trap house throwing "crossers" entertained all. 40+ yard rabbit targets thrown as a "simo" (simultaneously) were everyone's nemesis, so we were in fine company! Duster & Misser Pyle had this to say:

    "Could have used a turkey choke for those "wraskally wabbits" half a football field away!"---CNJFO's Jack Pyle

    Seborowski, an international bird hunter, had three generations of his family at the sporting clays match last Sunday. Both his daughter and grand daughter joined him on the 50-bird course, and his wife Carol, who brought home-made baked goods and pheasant chili to share with all present, was there to cheer every broken target. To say there was a twinkle in grandpop's eyes would be an understatement.

    Our trustees were given a tour of 4F Club's 100 yard rifle range, the separate archery range, and were invited to commiserate over missed birds and the governmental overreach coming out of our state capitol. 4F's clubhouse, with its inviting banter and wood burning stove ablaze to take the damp chill out of your bones, is where we learned of the club's annual Boy Scout merit badge day.

    The 4F Club hosts an annual hands-on .22 small bore rifle and shotgun merit badge day where the Scouts get to earn their badges by demonstrating safety and proficiency under the watchful eyes of competent instructors. 4F Club also conducts a conservation class by doing a deer skinning demo, teaching today's youth to be the responsible hunters of tomorrow.

    Knowing from experience what youth operations cost and how important they are to the future of the 2nd Amendment, CNJFO trustees donated $100 to 4F Club to help offset the increase in ammo expenses to give the badge day. The gift came as a welcome surprise and will be announced at 4F Club's next meeting.

    Did NJ Gov. Murphys' Invitations to Pro-Freedom Groups Get Lost in the Mail?


    by Black Wire Media Thur. Oct 29, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    CNJFO Life Member John Petrolino, author of "Decoding Firearms, an Easy to Read Guide on General Gun Safety & Use" and Ammoland contributor, just published a scathing article proving New Jersey's Governor, Phil Murphy, is so anti-gun he won't even listen to how unconstitutional many of the feel-good gun laws he signed into law are! Instead he'd rather surround himself with the screeching, red-shirted mommies from Moms Demand Action and other anti-gun sycophants. None of NJ's 2nd Amendment leadership was ever invited to a "Gun Summit", "Roundtable on Firearms" or any such thing since he became Governor.

    CNJFO President Dan Grdovic had this to say when asked by Petrolino if the Coalition was ever invited:

    "CNJFO has never been invited to or has been asked for input on any roundtable, town hall meetings, pending legislation, or summits held by the Governor's Office or anyone else in the Legislature with regard to Second Amendment or Gun Safety issues. Ironically, our mission statement states in part that ‘CNJFO was founded to advocate for lawful, safe and responsible firearms ownership in New Jersey.'

    'New Jersey's gun laws are designed to only hamper lawful firearms ownership in New Jersey. The existing laws are not followed by violent criminals within the state, and the judicial scheme regularly drops any and all firearms related charges against the most violent criminals, while simultaneously pursuing lynching of otherwise law abiding citizens (See the following cases: Van Gilder, Allen, Twyne)'.

    "CNJFO would be proud to sit in on any such gathering and provide our members' views to the Executive or Legislative Branches for their consideration. It's time for the Governor to acknowledge his ‘echo chamber' past and invite his opponents to the table for meaningful discussion that includes opposition.” ---Dan Grdovic, CNJFO President

    On July 1st, 2020 CNJFO wrote a letter to Governor Murphy and every member of the state legislature. Sussex County replied back to us with their steadfast support. We guess the Post Office must have misdirected everyone else's (dripping sarcasm)? From our news article announcing the letter:

    "In an unprecedented bond of unity, New Jersey’s leading Second Amendment organizations have sent a detailed letter to New Jersey’s Governor Murphy, Attorney General Grewal, Superintendent of State Police, Colonel Patrick J. Callahan, and all members of the Legislature proposing reforms to the New Jersey firearms permitting process and background checks. Moreover, the groups are calling for the elimination of qualified immunity for delays in permitting that result in bodily harm or death to the applicant".

    "This proactive call for reform comes as riots, looting and general criminal disturbances are on the rise. New Jersey gun owners are calling for accountability of government for delays in the process and an end to systemic infringements. While I support Constitutional carry, this is a great first step toward that goal." ---Theresa Inacker, CNJFO Communications Director

    CNJFO spearheaded this unprecedented call for reforms to New Jersey's antiquated firearms background check system which helped lead to the predictable yet totally unnecessary death of Berlin, NJ's Carol Bowne five years ago. Bowne was stabbed to death in her own driveway on day #43 waiting for permission to purchase a firearm. Domestic violence victims need a streamlined permitting system!

    Fast-forward to today... Obviously we're not going to hold our breath WAITING for our INVITE!....
