    CNJFO's RONNIE SIEGEL RIDES SHOTGUN W/ CHARLIE!
    3-GUN GRANNY OPENS A GIRL & A GUN NJ CHAPTER!

    by Black Wire Media Tues. July 14, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    CNJFO member Ronnie Siegel never sits still. The 68 year old grandmother is a retired NJ school administrator, airbrush artist, and competitive action shooter touring the countryside with her husband John Mark. Siegel is putting together the first "A Girl & A Gun" chapter in New Jersey. While taking a class at Sig Academy in New Hampshire, she and other 2A sisters were interviewed by our great friend Charlie Cook. Each got to "Ride Shotgun With Charlie", something CNJFO's Dave Rosenthal did 30 shows back (episode #49).

    Siegel also represents Hunterdon Co. for The DC Project-NJ, reporting to DC Project NJ Delegate & Director Theresa Inacker, our CNJFO Communications Director. We hope you enjoy this interview. To learn more about the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners, please visit: www.cnjfo.com .

    18-21 YR OLD YOUTH NO LONGER WANTED IN BSA!
    GUN OWNERSHIP TO FALL AS CREWS SUFFER LOSS!

    by Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal, Black Wire Media Editor in-Chief
    Sunday July 12, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    Did you know that there's GIRLS in the Boy Scouts being taught how to safely handle & shoot all three popular firearm platforms? Did you know that the females in the scouts OUTSHOOT their male counterparts (in most cases)? Co-Ed BSA Venturing Crews (not Troops) have "specialties" that they are chartered with, and SHOOTING CREWS of Venturing Scouts exist all over New Jersey and the USA. Ages for scouts in Crews runs up until the youth reach 21, unlike the traditional Boy Scouts where you "age-out" at 18. This allows dedicated adult volunteers the time to help those young women & men desiring to be gun owners themselves in filling out the application(s) when they turn 18, the minimum age to buy long guns in most states!

    The BSA Venturing program is the only one of its kind in America, and goes way beyond 4-H in regards to firearms training. The Girl Scouts offer no firearms programming whatsoever. A little-known secret of sorts is that the adult volunteers attached to Venturing Crews are allowed to do HAND GUN instruction and not merely use rifles & scatterguns. They hold NRA credentials and can award certificates to the 18-21 year old Crew members. In "free America" these certificates qualify the bearer to apply for & receive CARRY PERMITS in states where proficiency is stipulated on the application!

    With this announcement printed herein comes the inevitable loss of youth applying for & obtaining firearm purchasing "PERMISSION", which can be used their entire lifetimes. Life will "get in the way" even more than it does already. College, trade school, employment to make ends meet all take their toll as it is. This is just another nail in the coffin of gun ownership in our great country. A small nail, but a nail nonetheless.

    Lack of support by the Boy Scouts due to insurance costs of maintaining a co-ed program in today's lawsuit-rich environment, combined with loss of program income due to Covid and other serious factors, has resulted in this (to this writer) reprehensible but little-advertised decision.

    The Boy Scouts of America is under tremendous pressure these days to just stay afloat. We get it. Bankruptcy filings created by past decades of unchecked alleged sexual abuse has brought the program to its knees. Can the BSA survive? Only time will tell.

    EDITOR's NOTE:

    As a Shootist, Rosenthal has mentored hundreds of youth in his lifetime, starting with the local Troop his son Andy joined.

    Running Turkey Shoot fundraisers where the boys used his shotguns to shoot the paper targets to determine the winners, assisting at scout camp with rifle & shotgun merit badges, and being a reference for multiple firearms permitting applications for Eagle Scouts he'd trained, "Rosey" has scouting in his blood. Last pheasant season he mentored 16 year old USPSA Grand Master static steel champion Emily Cutts on her first pheasant hunt.

    His last self-assignment in scouting was an adult volunteer for a BSA Venturing Crew in Morganville, NJ that SHOOTS! Having witnessed the positive life experiences transferred to 18-21 year old women and men first-hand, he knows the value a firearms education brings to everyday life. Volunteering in scouting since his Eagle Scout crossed the bridge from Webelo's over 20 years ago, he's witnessed all the good that scouting teaches. Rosenthal believes elimination of the 18-21 age group in Venturing stymies gun rights education AND gun ownership.

    CNJFO CONGRATULATES ANTHONY COLANDRO ON BEING REELECTED TO THE NRA BOARD OF DIRECTORS!

    by Black Wire Media Sat. July 11, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    These last several months the world went to hell in a hand basket. The Covid "Plandemick" brought about death, "social distancing", joblessness and the whims of our state Dictator in-Chief (Governor Murphy & his two sidekicks Grewal and Callahan), which included closing every firing range in New Jersey! All through this somewhat insurmountable struggle, with lawsuit after lawsuit to put our oppressors on notice, stood a mountain of a man, with the weight of every NJ gun owner on his shoulders, who puffed on his CAO Brazilia cigars while leading from the front as "the Tip of The Spear". ANJRPC Executive Vice President, owner of Gun For Hire Woodland Park Range, host of Gun For Hire Radio and NRA Board member Anthony Colandro.

    While almost every other range owner cowered in the corner, afraid to call-out the unconstitutional singling-out of gun ranges (both open-air like ANJRPC's Cherry Ridge in Highland Lakes, NJ, AND all indoor ranges) for fear or reprisal, Colandro used social media to visit nearly 170 2nd Amendment friendly businesses struggling to stay open. His "Quarantine Crawl" interviewed 10 businesses per week on average for the 17 weeks his range was forced CLOSED! He set up a website to follow along, and some of his followers are aggressively patronizing these 2A-friendly locations to "keep it in the family".

    Leading from the front, by example, is the only thing he knows how to do. For this reason and too many more to list, we're grateful to all NRA voting members for returning our "Tip of The Spear" to the NRA Board of Directors!

    Anthony, you just SAVED the summer of 2020!

    Riding Shotgun With Charlie

    RIDING SHOTGUN WITH CHARLIE TAKES A RIDE ON A BARRETT!
    CHARLIE COOK CAN DO MORE THAN DRIVE & DO INTERVIEWS!

    by Black Wire Media Wednesday July 10, 2019 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    Charlie Cook, the "Riding Shotgun With Charlie" Stagecoach Driver that hails from the People's Republic of Massachusetts, swung-by to visit Anthony Colandro, NRA Board of Director #76 & ANJRPC Executive VP earlier today at Colandro's famed Gun For Hire Range in Woodland Park, NJ.

    NEW JERSEY, WHERE BOTH FUN & GUN RIGHTS GO TO DIE!
    FURLOUGHS NEWEST EXCUSE TO TELL GUN OWNERS "F.U."!

    by Black Wire Media Thurs. July 9, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    In a move that surprised no one, the state of New Germany has decided in its infinite wisdom to close perfectly acceptable open-air shooting & archery range facilities because they claim they don't have the personnel to man them. While on the surface this may seem viable, the reality is you never see a single NJF&W person on patrol, 'cept for the Conservation Cops during hunting season---which aren't affected by this state 3 week furlough! So, as yet another way to screw NJ gun owners because he CAN, our chief executive has once again taken-out his distaste for all things that go BANG! And FWIW, the dumpsters at the WMA's are serviced weekly by contract, so us taxpayers will pay to have empty dumpsters tipped!

    NJ's BAN ON EVIL FEATURES PUT MORE AR's ON THE STREET!
    "GUN CONTROL" MEANS BUYING HIS & HER AR-15's!

    Op-Ed by Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal, Editor in-Chief

    Black Wire Media Tues. July 7, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    As a leader in the fight to restore full rights to New Jersey gun owners, the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners did launch on July 1st a salvo of facts at our oppressors infesting the state capitol. This Op-Ed brings to light a problem we in NJ have faced and dealt with for years ---pinned stocks on our AR's! Imagine if you will a land where one size fits all in THE TWILIGHT ZONE!

    The politicians here in NJ want to "feel good" about a "gun problem" that simply doesn't exist (rampant misuse of the most popular rifle in America -- see FBI crime stats for debunking), so they cave to pressure to make it "go away" then propose, sign into law and enforce the "obvious-to-anyone-except-the-U.S. Supreme Court" unconstitutional laws and rules regarding semi-auto rifle possession in NJ that law abiding gun owners are saddled with. Adjustable stocks on semi-auto rifles are EVIL and therefore must be VERBOTEN! Flash suppressors, pistol grips, and bayonet lugs are also EVIL, but today's rant doesn't cover that real estate...

    Trouble is, the stated purpose of all of these "feel-good" measures is "getting more guns off the streets". That's an oxymoronic joke because the reality is Dad needs his own AR, and so does Mom. If they're blessed with kids, NJ parents need a third one to train the kids how to shoot! Why you ask? Because in The People's Republic of New Jerseystan, it's ILLEGAL to have an adjustable-length shoulder stock on a semi-auto rifle that can accommodate all arm lengths in a family! Having one is an indictable offense (FELONY) that will buy you YEARS in JAIL!

    NJ FFL's are a sworn accomplice to this breach of all things holy and therefore must administer "THE FIX" prior to releasing such a deadly "military-style weapon" into the populace. NJ gun owners are allowed 3 "evil features":

    Semi-auto operation, loading via detachable mags, and pistol grips. Leaving the bayonet lug on and/or flash suppressor instantly modifies this platform into an evil weapon of death & destruction, punishable by YEARS in JAIL! Because stock pinning is more important than stopping riots or keeping aggressive inmates jailed during the great Covid Caper of 2020...

    "Imagine if you would going to the dealer to buy a fancy new car with 12 way adjustable power seats. Now imagine the manager tells you to get into the car and adjust it to the way you like it. Imagine in your mind where he then permanently disables it so you can never adjust it again. THAT my friend is the "logic" of NJ gun laws. So now since you are 6'-3", your 5'-1" wife will never be able to drive that car, and you will have to buy ANOTHER CAR so she can reach the pedals. Works the same way in New Jersey for semi-auto long guns, including the most popular sporting rifle in America, the AR-15!" --- Howard Scho, former Jersey resident & competitive action shooter

    WAIT, THERE's MORE! You need a 3rd one for the kids!

    New Jersey's state capitol in Trenton is where all logic and reason goes to die! Political hacks, under the control of the red-shirted Karen's from Mom's Demand Action gun grabbers, have bought into a systemic plan of "feel-good" gun control by ridding the country of the most popular and easiest for women to use with accuracy firearms platform ---the AR-15! They take a bite from the apple every chance they get, and NJ's gun owners always lose!

    IT'S TIME TO FIGHT BACK PROACTIVELY! This Op-Ed does just THAT!

    "This is precisely why I told NJ Senators Weinberg & Greenwald that their gun control laws result in MORE guns being purchased. Because my wife & I cannot interchange the same AR since the stock simply MUST be in 2 different positions for either of us to be safely accurate. Out of all of the “bans and features” nonsense, this is probably the WORST, and makes “gun safety” (lies by them) actually more dangerous". ---CNJFO's Mark Levy, BWM freelancer

    As the MSM races to enlighten their readers with the latest exploits of known criminals (Prohibited Persons that can't touch a firearm) with rap sheets as long as your arm ---the true cause of violence perpetuated against society by the misuse of firearms, the NJ gun owner is slowly crushed under the weight of more & more "common-sense Gun Control" at the behest of the red-shirted Karen's from Moms Demand. Help us MAKE IT STOP! Become PROACTIVE yourself by JOINING the busiest 2A group in NJ: www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    EDITOR's NOTE:

    A self-admitted Shootist, Rosenthal has over 48 years of firearms experience on all platforms, is a competitive shooter in multiple disciplines, bought his first hand gun as a "straw purchase" before the term (and the felony) was invented, and has mentored thousands. From time-to-time he gets a bee in his bonnet and our readers get a peek into his "don't-screw-with-me" mindset. We hope you enjoyed the ride, and share this with your friends & fellow shooters alike.

    CNJFO ARTICLE ON BRANDISHING "SAINT LOUIS STYLE" & WE'RE RECOGNIZED AS THE CATALYST FOR LETTER TO GOV.!

    by Black Wire Media Mon. July 6, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    It's nice when you work really hard and important people take notice. Last week saw a major shift for 2A in NJ as we proactively sent a precedent-setting letter to the Governor of New Jersey written by our Communications Director Theresa Inacker. We then published an Op-Ed on the St. Louis couple brandishing at trespassers that caught Colandro's eye, written by our Editor in-Chief Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal. To say our dear friend Anthony was impressed would be an understatement. We must be doing something right, so how about showing some support and joining New Jersey's busiest 2nd Amendment organization! www.cnjfo.com/join-us https://gunforhire.com/…/the-gun-for-hire-radio-broadcast…/…

    As a #2AHeavyLifter in the Communist People's Republic of New Jerseystan it's not easy. Sometimes you gotta call em' as you see em' and risk "taking the heat" with an unpopular opinion that needs INK. This was one of those moments when you follow your gut instinct & let the chips fall where they may. I stumbled upon Charlie Cook's thoughts on his page. He inspired me to bloviate, and he quoted Tony Simon during a short add'l interview. And THAT's how it all came together. Black Wire Media's Theresa Inacker shared it to TTAG. I'm not surprised it stirred the pot and I'm grateful for everyone's help in making this go viral! Please SHARE & thanks!

    THE COALITION PUT TOGETHER A PROACTIVE COALITION!

    by Black Wire Media Mon. July 6, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

    Getting a handful of groups to agree on something is never easy. Convincing passionate people to join together for the common good is something CNJFO has wanted to do since our inception many years ago. This formal statement, spearheaded and authored by Coalition Communications Director Theresa Inacker, does that and a whole lot more! An END to the NJ NICS portal, an END to qualified immunity for Police Depts. that stall firearms permitting applications, and END to SYSTEMIC INFRINDGEMENTS of our 2nd Amendment rights! Bravo to all that helped shape this historical document, signed it in agreement, and published it (thanks John Petrolino & Ammoland!) so the world can see that New Jersey Patriots still HAVE SOME FIGHT LEFT IN THEM!
