Fed Judge Thwarts Parts of New Jersey’s Gun Law

U.S. District Judge Renée Marie Bumb has placed a temporary block on parts of New Jersey’s gun law meant to limit the number of places individuals can carry weapons after last year’s Supreme Court ruling expanding gun rights, Daniel Han reports for Politico.

The judge barred the section of the law banning guns from public libraries or museums, bars or restaurants that serve alcohol and entertainment facilities. However, despite limiting the scope of the law, the order did not disable many of its main components, including an overhaul of the process for obtaining a concealed carry permit in the state and a new mandate that requires gun carries purchase of liability insurance.
