A New Jersey law is preventing some retired police officers from applying for and receiving a concealed carry permit. The law in question excludes retired public university police officers from its provisions, according to a report that was published last week.
New Jersey statute 2C:39-6 (I) lists only federal, state, county or
municipal officers, sheriff’s officers, corrections officers, park
police and county prosecutor investigators as eligible for a concealed
carry permit, the Newark Star-Ledger
reported. Although the law makes provisions specifically for any
retired former “full-time member of a state law enforcement agency” to
apply for and receive a permit, it remains unclear whether or not former
public university police officers qualify under these provisions.
Ah, the horror of finding out your not the right kind of Only One to get special treatment.
Another reason(as if we needed any more) to get rid of DHS: the corruption.
The Department of Homeland Security on Thursday dismissed an ICE whistleblower it was secretly smearing to reporters after she testified before Congress about her troubles with the agency.
Special Agent Taylor Johnson — who had a storied career until she irked Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid by objecting to a visa program for foreign investors tied to the senator’s son — says she declined to take a $100,000 severance package because it included a non-disclosure agreement.
Gee, what a great use of taxpayer money that would have been. Pay a woman not to talk about what already got nationwide coverage when she talked about it before Congress.
And up in Washington: pass a stupid law, it gets ignored. In part because a number of LE people have flatly said "I'm not going to enforce this."
Must be causing huge annoyance- at the least- to the people who pushed it.
