Today we filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction in New Jersey on behalf of Albert Almeida and Michael Tuminelli. The introduction is as follows:
Plaintiffs bring this preliminary injunction in order to be issued carry permits to carry either openly or concealed for the pendency of this litigation. Both Plaintiffs currently face immediate threats to their life that cannot be reasonably avoided. Being armed for confrontation is their only reasonable option to preserve their lives. Despite their demonstrated justifiable need, Defendants refuse to issue them a license to carry a firearm. This is in direct contradiction to the legislative intent behind the justifiable need standard and this interpretation violates Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights. For the reasons described below, Plaintiffs respectfully request this Court enjoin the Defendants’ application of justifiable need as applied against Plaintiffs for the pendency of litigation and order the appropriate Defendants to issue permits to carry either openly or concealed to Plaintiffs.
