My property was revaluated by ASI last year. After mis-measuring my house and adding another 300 square feet and calculating that I had a finished basement with the same size footprint as the house (even thoough it was never excavated to that size) due to the 'assessor' not entering the basement and using incorrect means to measure, I was offered an option to 'settle'. We chose not to and fought the calculations and eventually got the correct square footage used for our property tax assessment.
The end result was still not great, my taxes went up close to $3,000, but it was better than what was initially ruled ($8,000). Only myself and one other person in my neighborhood managed to avoid the full revaluation, everyone else was stuck with the rulings.

If every time something like this happened, thousands of people descended on the city that perpetrated it, and demanded due process. This crap would stop in short order.
But as it is, they get by with it because the people of this country won't combine their collective constitutional right to free speech and grievance redress. Therefore, you can keep reading the headlines and weeping, because it isn't getting any better folks. It's only going to get worse.

Hmmm... Her cause may be right but two big things stand out. She went to a County/Government complex ( County Center or Community Center ) for a meeting with a gun. Now I checked to be sure...and New Jersey is among the most unforgiving and strict in the United States on carrying a gun in any form.
(Source: New Jersey Fireams Law Summary / NRA )
It is unlawful to knowingly have in your possession a: Handgun, including any antique handgun, without first obtaining a Permit to Carry. No distinction is drawn between carrying openly or concealed. Rifle or shotgun without first obtaining a FID card. It is Illegal to carry a loaded shotgun or rifle in any vehicle, or to shoot from any vehicle or across any road.
Someone knew she had a gun. How did ANYONE ever know she had a gun? Even if permitted, concealed means concealed and I am at a loss for how attending armed ever comes into it ...unless violating that local/state law in belief a copy of the Constitution would make a difference was the point?
*Just an FYI, but despite how open and accommodating Missouri is for firearms, I think I'd go to jail too if I attended a community meeting at anything like State/local/city property while carrying my gun and someone noticed. That's not a 'no gun sign' issue that can be ignored until asked to leave. Thats black letter law on those places.......

Wow, could that story get any more biased and ONE SIDED? I wonder what REALLY happened.
The source for this thread isnt a news item, but a blog which specifically chose to NOT include any reference to the offence she had committed.
...that the Clayton Police wanted to talk to her about the allegations.
...both the police officers DID acknowledge that it was “an allegation.”
And nobody has asked yet what the allegations were?
Everybody is so kneejerk outraged that they didnt notice allegations were made BY THE MOM and the article never stated what they were at any time?
ATS readers are soooo easily led, they might as well have a ring in their nose.

I'm confused by this part.
Is there some sort of gun registry in NJ?
ETA: If so, this seems like a perfect reason as to why there shouldn't be one.edit on 11-3-2013 by 311DTOM because:
