After the tragic murder and carjacking of Dustin Friedman right before Christmas at the Short Hills Mall in NJ, many are starting to question NJ laws gun controls, which are some of the strictest in the country and questioning whether these strict gun control laws may actually be putting more citizens at risk, while having little affect on crime.
While NJ residents can apply for Permit to Carry Handgun, the large majority is denied because they cannot prove justifiable need. The ability to carry a handgun for self-defense is extremely important, but no less important than the right to possess your legally owned handguns while traveling.
