Today, the District Court of New Jersey entered the Consent Order re: Tasers
April 25, 2017
Today the Consent Order in New Jersey was entered. It is attached here for you to read. The Court finds:
1. The Second Amendment guarantees individuals a fundamental right to keep and bear arms for self-defense District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008); McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010); Caetano v. Massachusetts, 577 U.S. __(2016). Further, “the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.” Heller, 554 U.S. at 582; Caetano, slip op. at 1 (per curiam).
2. Pursuant to the holdings in Heller, McDonald and Caetano, N.J. Stat. Ann. § 2C:39-3(h), to the extent this statute outright prohibits, under criminal penalty, individuals from possessing electronic arms, is declared unconstitutional that it violates the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and shall not be enforced.
The effects of the Consent Order are stayed for 180 pending "reasonable" regulation consistent with the Second Amendment. I would like to thank Alan Beck and Ryan Watson for their help in this case.
