Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is defiant to any national concealed carry reciprocity act if passed by Congress and signed into law by President Donald Trump.
However, Menendez needs to worry about his own problems before trying to act like a defiant liberal. He was indicted on federal corruption charges and his first trial ended in a hung jury, which is surprising since the evidence I’ve seen clearly shows his guilt.
He has now warned anyone with a concealed carry permit not to bring their weapon into New Jersey or they will spend 5 years in prison. He claims that his state has strict gun control laws that have made his state safer.
(Daily Caller) – “Throw’em into prison for five years” is what New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez wants for any out-of-state concealed carry permit holder who enter his state with a firearm.
“People violate our law — we are a state that has decided that we are against concealed carry weapons. We have stronger gun laws. We believe we have made the states safer as that,” Menendez told The Daily Caller Thursday. “They violate our laws, then whatever is the law, and they are found guilty of it, they should pay the consequence.”
When pressed about travelers with concealed carry permits who may be detoured into his state by accident, he replied: “They know what our state’s law is. They should know what our state law is if they want to carry a concealed weapon. I don’t think that they just simply get detoured and they should think in advance when they are traveling.” …
If Menendez believes that New Jersey is that safe due to their strict gun control laws, then I dare him to walk through many parts of Camden or Newark without any protection, especially at night. The last time I was in Philadelphia and was looking over the Delaware River at Camden, a number of people warned me about venturing into what they described as one of the most dangerous cities in the area.
