Thanks to the turnout of Second Amendment supporters and sportsmen in the Garden State, twenty-five NRA supported candidates won their elections for the New Jersey State Legislature on Tuesday, November 6.
Voters sent a particularly clear message in the 12th District, where Senator Ellen Karcher and Assemblyman Mike Panter were defeated. Senator Karcher and Assemblyman Panter both sponsored legislation to restructure the New Jersey Fish & Game Council to take away representation of New Jersey sportsmen and give more influence to animal “rights” activists who want to ban hunting in the Garden State.
The fight is still far from over. With the General Assembly in lame-duck session until January, anti-Second Amendment and anti-hunting legislation still has a chance of passage. Please continue contacting your State Legislators and respectfully urge them to oppose any and all legislation that undermines our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
