Today, we filed a lawsuit against New Jersey to overturn the Taser ban
The case, styled New Jersey Second Amendment Society and Mark Cheeseman v. Christopher S. Porrino, in his official capacity as Acting Attorney General and Colonel Rick Fuentes, in his official capacity as Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police, was filed today seeking to overturn the stun gun/Taser ban in New Jersey.
My co-counsel Alan Beck and Ryan Watson are involved in this fight. This will be the second New Jersey case we have brought together. You can read the case here.
The complaint seeks the following relief:
