NJ GOV NEVER INVITED 2A LEADERS TO ANY MEETING ON GUNS! SO CNJFO WROTE TO BOTH EXECUTIVE & LEGISLATIVE BRANCHES!

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!....
