Pro-gun groups urge court to make temporary injunction against N.J. “Sensitive Places” law permanent

New Jersey’s “Sensitive Places” law prohibited the carrying of a firearm in a vast array of places.

  • The list includes “any public gathering”, “any park, beach, or recreation facility”, “entertainment facilites” and a litany of others.

The initial complaint zeroed in on the most egregious limits: parks, libraries, bars and restaurants, entertainment centers, airports, healthcare facilities, and private property.

  • The lawsuit complained that these limits “violate the right to bear arms” as spelled out in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, claiming that “there is no established historical tradition that could justify” those restrictions.
  • In May, the court agreed with the complaint issuing a temporary restraining order against the enforcement of the law.
