Today we asked the District Court of New Jersey to not delay our Motion in the Taser case

On November 7, 2016, the Attorney General of New Jersey admitted New Jersey's stun gun/Taser ban was unconstitutional. That guidance is ignored by the New Jersey prosecutors who are to this day prosecuting individuals under an unconstitutional law.

Here is a quote:

Without a ruling from this Court that the statute is unconstitutional, citizens are continually subjected to prosecution for disobeying a concededly unconstitutional law. Now that the holidays are upon us, it should be expected that citizens will travel either from New Jersey or through New Jersey with stun guns, knowing that the Attorney General conceded the stun gun ban is unconstitutional. However, it is clear from the attached Complaint that the prosecutors still enforce the ban. This enforcement infringes upon the clear language in Heller and Caetano. A delay in ruling the statute unconstitutional serves no purpose, as “… the Government does not have an interest in the enforcement of an unconstitutional law, and the public interest is not served by the enforcement of an unconstitutional law.” Am. Exp. Travel Related Services Co., Inc. v. Sidamon-Eristoff, 755 F. Supp. 2d 556, 614–15 (D.N.J. 2010)...
