ANJRPC to Bring New Lawsuit Challenging NJ Carry Laws

29 Oct 2020 12:00 PM | Membership Committee (Administrator)

ANJRPC announced today that it intends to bring a new lawsuit challenging New Jersey's unconstitutional carry laws, which prevent the average person from defending themselves with a firearm outside the home. This will be the third time ANJRPC has led the charge to overturn New Jersey's carry laws in court.

If you have recently been denied a carry permit and are interested in being part of the new case, please contact ANJRPC attorney Dan Schmutter at

In the Garden State, the right to bear arms has been deliberately misconstrued as limited to inside the home only. The purpose of ANJRPC's planned new lawsuit will be to require states like New Jersey to recognize that the constitutional right of responsible citizens to bear arms also includes carry outside the home for personal protection. For far too long, the lack of a decisive interpretation by the U.S. Supreme Court of the right to bear arms outside the home has been exploited by states like New Jersey, which are hostile to the Second Amendment and have done everything in their power to deny this basic civil right to their citizens. The new planned lawsuit aims to change that.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs is the official NRA state affiliate in the Garden State.
