The FBI continues to investigate anonymous online calls to hold armed protests in Trenton and other state capitals across the nation, as well as at the U.S. Capital, leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday. Meanwhile, groups and organizations in New Jersey that support expanding the rights of gun owners are rejecting such calls. Dave Rosenthal, the vice president of the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners, said his organization is law abiding and has no part in this. “The Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners has no knowledge of any group or entity that is attempting to conduct an illegal march on Trenton armed,” he said. “We are a group that believes in law and order and the Constitutional right of carrying firearms, but to do so only legally.” He said it doesn’t make sense for anyone to call for an armed protest in Trenton because only about 1,500 gun carry permits has been issued in the state — “and most of them are judges, prosecutors, the politically connected and retired police officers.” He noted if a police officer or state trooper sees someone carrying a firearm in public “and asks for their appropriate carry permit and you’re not able to produce it, you’ll be arrested.”  [full article]
