New Jersey drops key requirement for concealed carry permits after SCOTUS ruling

To say that Democrats had a bad week would be a gross understatement. With major U.S. Supreme Court decisions both on firearms and abortion, Democrats took several losses in a span of less than 24 hours.

According to Breitbart, the high court’s Thursday decision regarding concealed carry permit issue out of New York is already having an effect on other states that essentially made it impossible for unconnected, non-celebrity residents to obtain the license necessary to carry a firearm for protection. 

The state of New Jersey has reportedly dropped key language from its old policy for residents who wanted a concealed carry license, removing the “justifiable need” requirement, which falls in line with the SCOTUS ruling that made such a license open to anyone who feels the need to obtain one, as guaranteed in the Second Amendment.

The monumental change came from New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin (D), who issued a June 24, 2022, directive to “All Law Enforcement Chief Executives and County Prosecutors” aimed at clarifying the state’s new policies.

“In reviewing an individual’s application for a permit to carry, the applicable law enforcement agency shall continue to ensure that the applicant satisfies all of the criteria of N.J.S.A. 2C:58-4d and N.J.A.C. 13:54-2.4, except that the applicant need not submit a written certification of justifiable need to carry a handgun,” the directive read.

AG Platkin added: “This Directive shall take effect immediately and remain in force and effect unless and until it is repealed, amended, or superseded by Order of the Attorney General.”

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the majority opinion in NYSRPA v. Bruen, which removes the “justifiable need” requirement in a handful of blue states that still required it, giving issuing agencies the power to deny the permits no matter the reason.

The decision was hailed as a massive win for pro-Second Amendment Americans and organizations.
