    Hi All,
    We have a one time opportunity to speak to Governor Corzine’s Handgun Task Force.

    The Handgun Task Force is going to review all NJ gun laws over the next 18 months (starting from July 27), starting with a review of the one-handgun-a-month law.

    There is an open public meeting on September 24, at 11:00am at the State House Annex, Committee Room 4, in Trenton, NJ.

    Anyone can attend, but if you want to testify, you have to call Sobande Afolabi, in the Gov’s Counsel’s office, 609-777-2462.

    I called the State House Annex and confirmed that Committee Room 4 holds only about 150 people. Therefore, it is critical that we get there early and with as many people as possible.

    I am sure that, whether you live in New Jersey, or you have to drive through New Jersey occasionally, that you are equally as fed up with the ridiculous gun control laws in this state. This is one of those very rare occasions where we can actually be heard.

    If anyone chooses to attend, please post as such. I am going to be posting this on multiple forums and I would like to keep a running total of those attending.

    Thanks for your help and good luck to everyone!

    What will be the topic of this meeting?

    Do you think there will be any nice guns for sale?

    You may be heard, but will they listen?

    One thing is for sure, if we are not there only bad things can happen.

    I found this on one of the other sites:

    The State House Counsel's office is the Gov's Counsel's office. I talk to Sallye from time to time when I submit OPRA requests. She is very helpful.

    You don't have to be from NJ to weigh in. All of the NJ laws apply to anyone who drives into or through NJ. An example of an email is:
