N.J. Next Target After SCOTUS Ruling

New Jersey’s gun laws, pills among the nation’s toughest, will most likely face an avalanche of lawsuits in light of Monday’s Supreme Court ruling, as activists test the statutes’ constitutional mettle, experts said.

The Supreme Court case, McDonald v. Chicago, found individuals have a right to possess a handgun in their home for self-defense, but it also dismissed “doomsday proclamations” that its finding would strike down all local firearms regulations.

“The devil is in the details,” said Earl Maltz, a professor at Rutgers-Camden. “You’re going to have a series of cases that talk about what’s a reasonable restriction and what’s not.”

New Jersey’s extensive gun statutes may become ground zero in the coming litigation battles, said John Vincent Saykanic, a criminal defense attorney. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a gun-control group, ranked the state’s laws as the second strongest in the country after California’s.-[source]
