No it's not.

The weapon is an antique. Technically not even a pistol under the law.

Governor Christie has not been a friend of the Second amendment. He will not get my vote for prez.

You are right but,,,,,,,,
No one should have to hire an attorney and pay to defend themselves from this harassment.

However, freedom does not come cheap or easy.

I am quite sure carrying an antique, classified by the ATF as a Curio and relic is not against any local law. It was not loaded, it was in a secure compartment, and they had NO reason to arrest him. I hope he sues their dumb butts, and wins a large settlement. Surely the officer with all our modern technology could have checked on the status of this gun BEFORE he made an arrest. This is the case of a dumb cop, and a dumber prosecuter.

A Frintlock is an abomination to 2nd amendment rights!

He had just bought it, how was he supposed to get it home; ask Scotty to beam him there?

Kirk, believe it or not, you would be wrong. NJ has no exemption for antiques.
