If you have been denied your constitutional right to own a firearm, or if you have been charged with a crime related to handgun possession, it is extremely important for you to find a NJ Second Amendment lawyer with the experience and knowledge to assist you in this time. As a former state prosecutor with years of experience trying criminal cases, Criminal Defense Attorney John B. Brennan has that experience.
The Second Amendment guarantees American citizens the right to own a firearm, but the state of New Jersey has the strictest gun laws in the nation, including regarding who may own a handgun. Citizens can be denied ownership of a firearm for mental illness, drug dependency, previous convictions or many other reasons. A denial of an application for legal firearm ownership is at the discretion of the local police force. These denials can be appealed in a court of law.
John Brennan is a longtime former New Jersey state prosecutor who has tried numerous crimes involving handgun possession. He understands how citizens will often be denied their Second Amendment rights on the basis of local police deeming their firearm ownership as “not in the public interest”. If you are denied a permit based on this clause or other gray area, contact John Brennan for an appeal. The burden is on the state to prove you are not eligible, and they will need to articulate a compelling reason in a court of law.
If you are facing the possibility of being unable to provide self-defense for your home or family and have had your appeal for a gun permit rejected, you should seek a NJ Second Amendment lawyer with experience in state statutes and courtroom negotiations. Call the offices of John B. Brennan today for a free consultation regarding your legal rights. Brennan will review your case thoroughly to help achieve the best outcome for you.
