And here we have the latest Shaneen Allen story from the beautiful state of New Jersey . . . Woman arrested after cops find loaded handgun in her purse
A Florida woman was arrested after cops found she was carrying a handgun loaded with hollow point bullets in her purse during a traffic stop, Frenchtown police said.
Cops stopped Donna Marie Gracey, 59, of Seminole, Florida, on Tuesday for having tinted windows and a view obstruction on Bridge Street in Frenchtown. While she was searching for her license, officers spotted a concealed weapons permit, according to a press release.
But wait! Gracey has a permit to carry. Except it’s from Florida, and that cuts precisely zero ice in a gun-rights-free zone like New Jersey,
Though Gracey had a permit to carry the gun in her home state, New Jersey’s strict gun laws require weapons to be stored unloaded and locked in the trunk.
Oh, and about that JHP ammo…
While legal to possess hollow point ammunition, there are heavy restrictions in N.J. regarding transporting and using the bullets.
(I)t is also illegal to possess hollow nose or hollow point bullets unless you are engaged in one of the activities that are considered “exemptions.” These include: hunting, fishing, and target shooting.
Shaneen Allen and a few other unfortunate out-of-staters who were snagged by the Garden State’s oppressive gun control laws were pardoned by Governor Chris Christie, a Republican. But his term ends in about three weeks. Will his Democrat successor, Phil Murphy, take the same conciliatory approach to those with concealed carry licenses issued by other states who aimlessly wander into the New Jersey gulag? Don’t bet on it.
