Law suits in other states could be indicator of the future of New Jersey’s carry permit law

About a month after McDonald, there are no New Jersey law suits pending but it is hopefully just a matter of time.  A number of other law suits have already been filed including two filed by attorney Alan Gura.  So far, suits are pending in at least California, New York and Maryland.  While every state has their own laws, the courts’ analysis in these cases should have a pretty big impact on a future New Jersey case.  The more wins that come up, the better.  However, until the NJ Supreme Court issues their decision, nothing is guaranteed. 

The National Review has an article about the suits filed after McDonald here.

The SAF press release regarding the Maryland case is here.
