N.J. Attorney General Files Malicious Civil Complaints Against Firearm Industry Members

New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin has filed two civil complaints against members of the firearms industry. Platkin, who’s been a member of Governor Phil Murphy’s team in one capacity or another since its inception, is executing a law that was enacted maliciously to put the squeeze on firearm-related businesses.

New Jersey’s Statewide Affirmative Firearms Enforcement Office enforces the 2022 firearms public nuisance law and acts as a work-around for the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The 2022 law allows the Attorney General to go after firearm companies in civil suits for breaking New Jersey’s law, even if they’re outside of said jurisdiction.

The companies named in the complaints are FSS Armory from New Jersey Patriot Enterprises Worldwide LLC (does business as Eagle Shows), and Not An LLC (does business as JSD Supply) from Pennsylvania.

The Attorney General alleges that FSS Armory was reckless in how they allegedly stored their firearms. A theft that occurred, as stated in Platkin’s release, was essentially being blamed on FSS.

The company’s failures put New Jersey residents, as well as those in neighboring states, in danger by allowing the weapons to be trafficked and placed in the hands of criminals and others not legally permitted to own a firearm.

FSS Armory, a state-licensed gun dealer, stored stacks of guns within easy reach of a ground-floor window adjacent to its sales floor and glass-doored entrance. It did not secure either the window or the guns. FSS Armory showcased these unlawful and reckless practices, posting images of the unsecured weapons and window to the homepage of its website and to the store’s Google Maps business listing….

After searching for “gun stores in nj” on their cell phone, a group of individuals found FSS Armory, drove there, broke the glass window, reached through, and stole twenty guns. The burglars promptly trafficked the guns. Some have since been since recovered in criminal investigations. Others have been used in crimes or recovered at active crime scenes. Most remain unaccounted for.

In the complaint against Eagle Shows and JSD Supply, Platikin alleges that these companies “have targeted the sale of ghost gun products to New Jersey residents.” Platkin is suing the companies for conducting lawful business in a completely different state, Pennsylvania.

The Attorney General brings this action to stop and remedy Defendants’ unlawful sale to New Jersey residents of products designed to create unserialized, untraceable firearms— commonly known as “Ghost Guns.” defendants, who know full well that Ghost Guns are illegal in New Jersey, deliberately sell their products at gun shows just across the New Jersey— Pennsylvania border. They do so to make Ghost Guns readily accessible to New Jersey residents—even though such weapons have been illegal in New Jersey for years.

Neither complaint filed against these companies was authored by Attorney General Platkin. The signatory attorney is listed as Assistant Attorney General David Leit.

There was no mention of Platkin’s office referring to those who participated in the theft as “gun traffickers,” nor were there any known efforts to go after actual criminals who participated in criminal activity utilizing firearms that were self-made. In these bold steps, Platkin is not going after the real criminals who commit crimes but rather law-abiding companies.

The Director of SAFE, Ravi Ramanathan, said in a statement, “The unlawful and unreasonable actions of FSS Armory, JSD Supply, and Eagle Shows have caused significant harm to our communities, and they must be held accountable.” If the actions of the listed companies were “unlawful,” then where are the criminal complaints? “Unreasonable actions” amount to what in a court of law?

The State of New Jersey, under Governor Phil Murphy’s regime, has suffered irreparable damages from unlawful and unreasonable laws and policies. The execution of the firearms public nuisance law is just a way for the Garden State to ring up legal bills for law-abiding members of the firearms industry.

300 people heading to DC pro-Israel rally left stranded by ‘deliberate and malicious’ walkout of bus drivers

The drivers who walked out are either Leftists or Muslims and probably a mixture of both, full of righteous indignation over false reports of Israeli atrocities.

LEFT STRANDED FOR 8 HOURS

“About 300 Jewish people headed to DC Israel rally left stranded by bus drivers staging ‘deliberate and malicious’ walkout,” by Doree Lewak, Katherine Donlevy and Jack Morphet, New York Post, November 14, 2023:

Hundreds of Jewish people headed to Tuesday’s pro-Israel rally in DC were left stranded when bus drivers staged “a deliberate and malicious walk-off,’’ a major Jewish organization said.

The “anti-protest” left a charted flight from Detroit — about 300 people — on the Dulles Airport tarmac for about 11 hours before being sent back home, causing them to miss the entire March for Israel event.

“I thought it was nuts, I thought it was crazy that we’re blocked from getting to the rally,” Jonathan Kaufman told The Post, adding that there were “frantic” calls to find out what was happening as they were stranded for hours.

“Our right to assembly is a constitutional right — and this was straight up blocking that.”

Kaufman and 900 others hopped on three private planes out of Detroit chartered by the Jewish Federation of Detroit, which also booked several buses to transport the massive group to the march at DC’s National Mall.

A third of the passengers weren’t allowed to leave the tarmac, however, after several buses failed to show up on the tarmac upon their 10:30 a.m. landing, according to a federation spokesperson.

The drivers had organized a “mass sick out” day to prevent Jewish ralliers from attending the much-anticipated march, leaving just a handful available to meet their obligations.

“We have learned from the bus company that this was caused by a deliberate and malicious walk-off of drivers,” the spokesperson told The Post.

The bus company — which the federation repeatedly refused to name — told the Jewish Federation of Detroit that a “significant number” of drivers called out sick when they learned they would be taking hundreds of Jewish Americans to the pro-Israel rally, the organization’s David Kurzmann told reporters at a press conference Tuesday….

The massive group was initially told the busses were struggling to get through security to enter the concourse and reach the tarmac before they were told the truth.

“About an hour and a half later we were told that there was an ongoing walkout of bus drivers from the company that was hired to drive us into the city and that the shortage of drivers was making it very difficult to get us into DC,” Jonah Seinfeld-Chopp, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of Michigan, told The Post….
