New Jersey’s Gun Law is Challenged by Saf’s Revised Complaint

The Second Amendment Foundation has modified its complaint against New Jersey’s revised gun permit statute to include one plaintiff and “sensitive sites.” Koons v. Platkin is its name.

Plaintiff Gil Tal joins SAF and its lawsuit partners. The lawsuit is named after Jeffrey M. Muller, Nicholas Gaudio, and Ronald Koons, who are all plaintiffs. Beacon, NY attorney David Jensen represents them.

Formerly known as Koons v. Reynolds. In that action, Camden U.S. District Judge Renee Marie Bumb granted SAF a temporary restraining order.

U.S. District Court for New Jersey received the amended lawsuit. Officially, New Jersey Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin and State Police Supt. Patrick Callahan is the defendant.

The new lawsuit challenges “sensitive sites” designations for parks, beaches, recreational facilities, playgrounds, areas owned or controlled by a state, county, or local government entity, youth sports events, an airport or public transportation hub, and numerous healthcare institutions.

The lawsuit states that the New Jersey Legislature wanted to “continue reducing the carry of handguns as much as possible” in these “sensitive” places.

“We are still appealing for a declaratory judgment against the offensive tenets of this legislation,” SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb said.

“We are seeking a preliminary and/or permanent injunction barring the defendants and their officers, agents, and other employees from enforcing the challenged elements of the legislation, which violate the Second Amendment right to bear weapons.

The new law’s limits have no historical precedent. By declaring anything a “sensitive area,” New Jersey cannot criminalize licensed concealed carry. It mocks the Bruen judgment.

“New Jersey’s Legislature and Gov. Phil Murphy believe they’re clever, but they’re too clever by half, which we aim to establish in court,” said SAF Executive Director Adam Kraut.

They’ve only mocked the supreme court’s Bruen verdict. This recklessness is intolerable, especially when it comes to New Jerseyans’ constitutional rights.”
