2A RIGHTS A STEPCHILD, SCOTUS NEEDS TO ACT!
NO OTHER AMENDMENT IS INFRINGED THIS WAY!

Imagine the outrage if our government said, "You may not protest", "You may not open an email account", or "You may not start a website" (all First Amendment rights). Imagine if they said, "We do not have a scintilla of evidence against you, but you are going to jail anyway" (Fifth Amendment). Imagine at any time, Police can knock your door down and search your belongings (Fourth Amendment). How about, they say you committed a crime, and you go right to prison without defending yourself or facing your accuser (Fifth Amendment). Then there's my personal favorite, the Eighth Amendment, "We're going to subject you to cruel and unusual punishment and there's nothing you can do about it".
If any one of those rights I mentioned were violated, the people on both sides of the aisle would become apoplectic. Unless it involves GUNS!
These days all it takes is a neighbor making a phone call to get you forced out of your vehicle at gunpoint and "proned-out" in front of your family. Or a 1-Star review on Google. The infamous "Red Flag" feel-good law that has already been used in NJ as a WEAPON in both the Gleason and Conti incidents ---(Editor).
So why do we allow the Second Amendment to be treated as the stepchild to the rest of the Bill of Rights? If ever there is a time to squash the gun control debate, it is now. Yet New Jersey's RED FLAG laws continue to violate not only the Second Amendment, but several more as well!
You think you could have called the Police in these cities that were overrun by these rioters & looters? The Police were trying to stay alive themselves during a complete overrun and anarchy. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN during those times my fine fickle friends.
50 years ago kids brought their rifles to school for competitions. Now look where we are!
CNJFO's newest member Chad Aaronson is a small business owner (Car Washes) with five locations. When he's not fighting grime or being infringed upon by the state of New Jersey (10 round mag limit, et-al), he reloads or writes to get things off his chest. We hope you enjoy his straightforward style & analysis. Aaronson has been a shooter for over 21 years, preferring the long range discipline. Shown here yesterday at Central Jersey Rifle & Pistol Club where he recently became a member, the NRA Pistol Instructor & RSO started reloading just 3 months ago. Judging by his results at 200 yards, we'd say his shooting is as "dialed-in" as his writing!
Aaronson used his Savage model 10 chambered in .308 Winchester. Topped with a Mueller 8-32x44 tactical scope, a Harris bipod and a bolt handle from Glades Armory.
