While I agree with most of the posts in this thread, I have to also state that Newark, NJ is quickly becoming as dangerous as Detroit and New Orleans.
The rate of crimes and gangs has grown exponentially in the last few years.
Booker was elected to change all of this -- and it's only gotten worse. This is their last ditch effort to reign in the rampant crime.
Not 15 minutes away from Newark is an area of great wealth. In fact, much of Newark is surrounded by it and unfortunately the crime is now spreading to surrounding counties.
With some of the highest property taxes in the country, many of the people are now leaving since the taxes are still going up but so is the crime.
Edit to add: I am in no way justifying our 2nd Amendment being nullified. I am just saying that frankly Newark does need some over-hauling.

Well Brother they are trying to get our weapons, they fear legal weapons far more than illegal weapons simply because our weapons can be used to stop all the things they love, such as crime and tyranny.
